    Alex Biega Update, Part II

    Both USHR and Research on Ice have reported that Alex Biega has gained admission to Harvard for this coming fall. Biega, who at one time mentioned Cornell among his list of possible schools, is a huge catch for the Crimson. He not only solidfies a strong recruiting class for Harvard (a class now considered among the ECACHL's strongest, along with Cornell's and Quinnipiac's) but he likely puts Harvard in the lead for one of the top forward recruits in the northeast next year: Michael, his younger brother.

    May Poll Recap

    Wow, it's June. The renovation of Lynah continues and it certainly looks like more than just a hole in the ground.

    Here's a recap of last month's poll:
    "Which OOC opponent are you looking forward to seeing the most in 06-07?"

    The results were as follows:

  • Maine, 59% (that would mean good things happened in Florida)
  • New Hampshire, 27% (would that mean that bad things happened in Florida?)
  • Niagara, 11% (very competitive set last year)
  • Western Michigan, 3% (Ok, who's related to a Bronco?)

    Thank you for voting & please remember to vote in this month's Puckhead Poll.
