(#319) Previewing teams 57-54 in my rankings, an update on Hagens
This issue leads off with the next installment of my preseason rankings. We have in-depth looks at Long Island, Air Force, Dartmouth, and Brown in this issue.
James Hagens is reportedly not going to Harvard. In addition, his brother has de-committed. James is one of the top recruits in the nation and a potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2025 NHL Draft. I have some insight on where things stand with Hagens, if the brothers are expected to commit together, and who are the potential favorites.
Michigan and Simon Fraser have an exhibition game scheduled for Sept. 30. The problem is that games aren't allowed to begin until Oct. 7.
In the newswire we have a lot of updates, including some on assistant coaches, UVM picked up a player in the transfer portal, two BU recruits are back on the market, and practices are getting underway.
