2006-2007 Roster

Here's an early look at next year's Big Red roster: Cornell will graduate 6 players and, hopefully, lose no one else to early departure. Those graduating will be Cam and Chris Abbott, Louis Chabot, Jon Gleed, Matt Moulson, and Dan Pegoraro. That's 4 forwards, one defensiveman, and one goalie. Not surprisingly, Coach Schafer has already lined up an impressive group of replacements, bringing in 6 forwards, one defensiveman, and one goalie.

Assuming everyone on the roster returns, next year shapes up like this:

F - Byron Bitz
F - Mitch Carefoot
F - Mark McCutcheon
D - Dan Glover
D - Ryan O'Byrne
D - Evan Salmela
G - David McKee

F - Chris Fontas
F - Raymond Sawada
F - Topher Scott
D - Doug Krantz
D - Sasha Pokulok

F - Evan Barlow
F - Matt Connors
F - Michael Kennedy
F - Ryan Kindret
F - Tyler Mugford
D - Taylor Davenport
D - Jared Seminoff
G - Dan DiLeo

F - Blake Gallagher
F - Colin Greening
F - Justin Milo
F - Tony Romano
F - Joe Scali
D - Brendon Nash
G - Ben Scrivens

There's some heavy losses coming soon at the blueline so it wouldn't be surprising if another defensiveman is brought in for next year, as well as being a huge priority for the incoming 2007 class. It also wouldn't be a surprise if another goalie is brought in for next fall, say if Brad Thiessen makes himself available (Thiessen is said to have visited North Dakota this past weekend).
