Almost Hockey Approaches

By my calculation it's almost September, which should just be renamed to "AlmostHockey". I hope the new layout isn't giving anyone fits and I hope the normalization of the color scheme is well liked. Let's face it, that customized gold background with the green text was pretty MySpace-ish. Let me know if you have any specific problems that might be a result of some change I've made here.

Welcome 2015-16 Seawolf Freshmen

Most every year I make a post welcoming the Seawolf rookies to Anchorage and give them advice on things to do and things to not do. This is that post.

Another Surprise Player: Sean MacTavish for 2015-16

Over The Boards tweeted yesterday that Sean MacTavish (20yo, 6ft, 190lb right-hander), the son of former Edmonton Oiler's player, Head Coach and GM Craig MacTavish, is coming to UAA after previously giving a verbal commitment to Boston University. Thanks to Anon for the comment in the last post for giving the heads up.

The tweet says, "Nice pull out of the USHL for UAA."  And I certainly can't disagree. Sean had good numbers his first two junior years in the AJHL with Sherwood Park scoring near 1ppg over those seasons. Last year he played for three different USHL teams and seemed to struggle statistically except while with Lincoln where he bagged 3 goals with 4 assists in 14 games. Good work from the UAA staff (I'm assuming this is Josh Ciocco's handiwork) securing this. 

The addition of another forward to the UAA roster brings the total number to 20.  Not to put too fine a point on it but there's 12 guys that dress for a game. Before this announcement there was going to be boatloads of competition for playing time. Now there's even more. 

Welcome to UAA Sean.
