Murphy transferred to Northeastern this summer after three seasons at Providence, but had not been granted eligibility yet. Though NCAA women’s hockey allows players to transfer without sitting out a year, Hockey East league rules require players to sit out for a year if they transfer to another school within the confe...

Kings’ Prospect Tyler Madden Bringing Bright Lights to LA

“Gonna go where the bright lightsAnd the big city meetWith a red guitar, on fire” — Desire, U2 Tyler Madden’s nickname started flippantly in an exchange with his Northeastern University hockey teammates. After scoring two story-book goals as a freshman, his Huskies buds talked to him about coming through at the right time. His response: “I play my best when the bright lights are on.” And thus “Bright Lights” Madden was how they would now refer to him. That anecdote came via Northeas...

Chicago Steel’s Colangelo Takes the Next Step

Rattling off two separate 13-game winning streaks, the Chicago Steel ran through opponents in 2019-20, going 41-7-1 and outscoring their opponents 242-136. Sam Colangelo had a fantastic year himself and says that perhaps the biggest accomplishment he felt the team had was when they were without five of their top players.

2020 NCAA Hockey Postseason Cancelled Due to COVID-19

Matt Christians/SBN College Hockey I was considering compiling all the cancellations and special procedures for games around the country until, at a certain point yesterday, it started to become obvious that it would simply just be more efficient to wait for the big one.

St. Cloud State Rebounds with a 2-1 to Earn Weekend Split

One night after seeing their home winning streak that stretched over an entire season snapped, St. Cloud State rebounded with a 2-1 victory over Northeastern to earn a split in their non-conference series against the Huskies. St. Cloud got off to a fast start coming off the loss, firing ten shots on goal in the game’s first 10 minutes, while not allowing a single shot against. But Northeastern goalie Craig Pantano was excellent for the second consecutive night, stopping every St. Cloud Stat...

SBN Women’s College Hockey Poll Vote—October 14th

Photo by M. Anthony Nesmith/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Here is this week’s Women’s D-1 College Hockey Poll, but together by The Ice Garden. I have a vote in the poll, and here is how I voted, this week. Wisconsin W at OSU, 3-0, W at OSU 7-3 Welp. As much as I tried to push the narrative that hey, this might be the year that it’s not just Minnesota and Wisconsin in the WCHA, it kind of looks like it is just Minnesota and Wisconsin in the WCHA.

None America's religiosity is not as clean-cut as advertised. While we were certainly not founded as a "Christian nation," Dionysian chaos didn't reign supreme either.

NCAA Weekly Wrap: UMass Stuns Ohio State, Quinnipiac Tops BC & More

The 2018-19 NCAA hockey season is underway, and we’ve already been surprised. A number of upsets occurred this past week, including the UMass Minutemen topping the No. 1 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Quinnipiac Bobcats were able to shut out the Boston College Eagles as the Union Dutchmen swept a tough Northeastern Huskies team.

Switzerland’s Müller Ready to Light up Hockey East for Northeastern

One of women’s hockey’s most exciting young stars has made her way onto the scene of NCAA Hockey East. Now 20 years old and a freshman at Northeastern University, Switzerland’s Alina Müller holds the Olympic record for youngest medalist in women’s hockey. At all of 15 years old at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games, Müller scored a goal and two assists as the Swiss skated home with the bronze medal.

2018 NCAA Tournament Regionals Preview

The NCAA Tournament kicks off this afternoon and the conventions of the job require me to try to guess which way pucks will bounce off shin pads, and which teams will have the inevitable video reviews go in their favor. So here’s me talking about these games for a while before making a random-ass guess. If I pick against your team, know that my guesses are probably terrible, and I only did so because of deep personal vendetta against your team. West Regional St. Cloud State vs. Air Force ...

Ducks’ Josh Manson might never be satisfied, which is key to his success

ANAHEIM — The finished product appears nightly at Honda Center in the form of a 6-foot-3, 215-pound defenseman for the Ducks who is equal parts effective passer and tough-as-nails battler in front of his net, with a dash of offensive know-how and a hint of mean thrown in. To describe him as such would fit the ideal of what a hockey coach wants in a player at that position. If only Josh Manson saw him himself as that – a finished product. That might never happen. “I would say, I’ve made the NHL a...

Gaudette’s Two Goals Help Northeastern Sweep Merrimack, 3-1

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. -- Nothing in Hockey East ever comes easy, but especially playing at Merrimack College’s Lawler Rink on a Saturday night and sweeping a weekend home-and-home series in league play. Northeastern made the short drive up to North Andover with hopes of putting losses to Boston College and Connecticut in the rear view with a sweep of the Warriors, and that is exactly what happened. Junior Adam Gaudette scored twice and senior captain Nolan Stevens also added a power-play go...

Gritty Northeastern Downs Vermont for Fifth Hockey East Win, 2-1

BOSTON -- Even with the skill Northeastern’s lineup has, not every game is going to be pretty over the course of the lengthy college hockey season. Friday night was one of those nights at Matthews Arena. Down a goal with less than half of the third period to play, the Huskies dug deep to snag a 2-1 win over Vermont, as sophomore defensemen Ryan Shea and Jeremy Davies each scored goals within the final 8:10 of regulation time. “This is one of those types of games where you can get frustrate...

Analysis: Northeastern Exploited BU’s Weaknesses

BOSTON — The final score was emphatic. Northeastern had crushed its crosstown rival for a second consecutive game. This time it was 6-1 at a sold-out Matthews Arena. The Huskies won despite the absence of Dylan Sikura and Garrett Cockerill. However, Jim Madigan’s team has no shortage of firepower up front. Adam Gaudette scored two goals on seven shots on goal while Lincoln Griffin also lit the lamp twice. Nolan Stevens found the back of the net for a fourth time in two games and Bobby Hamp...

Gaudette’s Natural Hat Trick Sends Northeastern Past UMass Lowell, 3-1

LOWELL, Mass. -- There was no question that Northeastern would be able to put pucks in the net this season, but finding the best goaltender to keep them out on the other end of the ice was the major question mark. If the Huskies muster efforts Friday night’s at Tsongas Center, they have serious potential to be a force to be reckoned with come season’s end in Hockey East. Junior Adam Gaudette completed a natural hat trick with two second-period goals and classmate Ryan Ruck stopped 23 shot...

Whelan’s Winner Completes Quinnipiac Sweep at Northeastern

BOSTON -- “Good things usually happen when you put pucks to the net” is a hockey cliche, but one that turned out true for a Quinnipiac win Saturday night at Matthews Arena. With just 37.6 seconds left in overtime, Quinnipiac’s Alex Whelan followed up his own blocked shot and scored over Northeastern junior goaltender Ryan Ruck to lift the Bobcats to a 3-2 win, competing a weekend sweep.

Northeastern Rolls Past Sacred Heart, 7-0

BOSTON -- With the likes of Dylan Sikura, Adam Gaudette and Nolan Stevens in the lineup, Northeastern knew that its offense was all but a sure thing entering this season.

Sikura and Gaudette finished as two of four Huskies with three-point nights, teaming up on three different goals en route to a 7-0 win over Atlantic Hockey foe Sacred Heart at Matthews Arena Saturday night. “I thought tonight was a lot better effort in how we ...
