Re: NU Hockey over Canisius (Exhibition)

What a secret keeping this game under the radar. Initially I had seen it posted on the Canisius site months ago but Niagara made no mention of it. Later Canisius purged it from their schedule. No mention by Niagara again until after the game was played if they mentioned it at all. I had seen the box...

Re: NU Alum Matt Brash : Seattle Mariners Pitcher

Purple Eagle is going to the playoffs! This has probably been answered elsewhere but has a Niagara player ever been in a professional league playoff other than basketball (Murphy for sure and others likely?)? Hockey, baseball, soccer, or even football? Looking forward to following Brash as all game...

Re: AHA Preseason Coaches' Poll/ Newcomers/ AHA Previews

As for the free giveaway of tickets here is my take on that. A few years ago I brought that up but was told that as nice as that would be to have more fans in the seats the problem is that they need revenue and give aways do not give any. So that idea seems to be out of the question. I guess the onl...

Re: No where to go but up/ AHA Preseason Coaches' Poll/ Newcomers

One would think NU would have arranged for an exhibition against a college team from Canada. The have in the past. York College ? NE, what is your take on the state of NU's current roster? Do you think the new skaters will make a difference this season, possibly moving up in the standings ? I think...

Re: No where to go but up/ AHA Preseason Coaches' Poll/ Newcomers

They don't make things easy for themselves by bypassing the first week exhibition game. Their exhibition game is midseason vs the National DPT so they go into their first game on the road against Omaha without any competition game in hand. Omaha on the other hand hosts Minnesota State in an exhibiti...

Another notable is Junior Defenseman Josef Mysak who as a freshman was on the AHC all rookie team as well. His younger brother was a star on the Czech Republic junior team and was a 2nd round draft pick of Montreal. I think Josef will develop into a star this year.

AHA Preseason Coaches' Poll/ Newcomers/ AHA Previews

Expectations are very low for the Men's winter sports programs. Along with the Basketball program being selected 11th and last in a recent poll the coaches have now selected Niagara only above Holy Cross in the Hockey coaches' poll. I believe those will both be proven to be wrong but their track rec...

Re: …and now NU's Wynton Bernard to MLB.

Looks like he will be on that roster for the long term now.
