A great read for those of you that care...


2015 NCAA Hockey Tournament Preview: BU, UND highlight Northeast and West regionals






An interesting free agent possibility is Kasimir Kaskisuo i don't think he has signed anywhere. He plays with Minnesota-Duluth and they are taking on the juggernaut Minnesota.




Flyers could use him to add to their goaltending pool which is rather bleak.

More than 30 percent of NHL players played college hockey. I don't know why any young player vacillating between college and junior hockey wouldn't at least start in college. They can always leave and play junior, but once a player plays junior, they are ineligible for NCAA hockey. The culture, the ability to train, the chance to meet interesting non-hockey people and the chance to make oneself more interesting via college makes the difference a stark one for me.-John Buccigross

Eight of the 16 head coaches in the NCAA tournament are coaching their alma mater.


Top five states represented in the NCAA tournament: Minnesota with 96 players, Massachusetts with 38, Michigan and New York with 23 each and California with 17.


By Country: 74 percent from USA, 23 percent from Canada, 6 percent born in Finland, 2 percent from Sweden, and 1 percent from Austria, Denmark, Latvia, and Switzerland.


A couple of rule differences between NHL and NCAA hockey: No hand passes are allowed anywhere in college. If a player shoots the puck over the glass in college, it's not an automatic penalty. If a team scores a goal on a delayed penalty, the penalty still stands.


Since 2008, 4-seeds have reached the Frozen Four as often as 2- and 3-seeds combined.
