NU returns 80% of their scoring firepower and brings in "three" key transfers who will be eligible to play this season.
The remaining newcomers are Mike Corson, Croix Evingson, and Walker Sommer. Corson is a junior goalie who transferred from Denver in the offseason. Evingson, a defenseman from UMass Lowell, came to NU last year but sat out due to transfer restrictions. Likewise, Sommer, an Air Force transfer, will also be eligible to play after sitting out last season.

What a joke re RIT. The SEC, B10 , ACC etc can play football before limited fans, but the Admin at ROT can't muster of enough testosterone to allow their kids to play. What a joke --here we go again...

Notre Dame series at home Nov. 13-14 against Wisconsin open only to hockey players’ immediate family
Maybe ROT should downsize to D3 status ........

Not to be Debbie Downer, but our hoops team, along with 3 other MAAC schools, aren’t currently practicing (and Canisius just started practicing Monday). Doubtful we will see hoops start until December, and I’m not holding my breath that there will actually be a season the way numbers are shooting up.

Add the Ivy League to the cancelled winter sport list. I would hope Atlantic Hockey keeps the original revised schedule and adds some ECAC teams for the cancelled RIT games. Those remaining ECAC teams will have a tough time finding games and fielding teams without the Ivies. The league cannot keep revising the schedule wholescale but filling in for RIT may work..
