College Hockey:
Atlantic Hockey Picks Nov. 29-Dec. 2

Last week: 4-3-2
On the season: 48-25-15 (.631)

This Week’s Picks:

Thursday, Nov. 29:
Army at Bentley – The visiting team won all three games in this series last season, but I think that trend stops here. Bentley wins.


Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1:
Robert Morris at Holy Cross – This series is a near toss-up in my opinion, with Holy Cross getting a slight edge. The Crusaders are a little deeper and have the home ice advantage. Holy Cross sweeps.

Sacred Heart at Niagara – It’s tough to pick against a team 7-0 in league play in a home series against a team still looking for it’s first win of the season. So I won’t. Niagara sweeps.

Canisius at Connecticut – Both teams are playing pretty good hockey right now, but I’m going with the home team. The Huskies are 5-0-1 against Canisius in their last six meetings. UConn sweeps.


Friday, Nov. 30:
Mercyhurst at Air Force – This is a rematch of last year’s Atlantic Hockey semifinals, won by the Falcons. I’m picking a similar result. Air Force wins.

Saturday, Dec. 1:

American International at Army – This will be an emotional game for the Black Knights. Army is honoring Major Tom Kennedy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in August. Kennedy was a former player and Officer Representative at West Point. Army wins.


Sunday, Dec. 2:
Rochester Institute of Technology – Both teams are further down in the standings than expected. The home team won all three games in this series last season and I think that trend continues. Air Force wins.

  • Union ’97

    I believe Union is 15-2-3 in the last 20 on the road dating back to last year.  That has got to be one of (if not the) best road records in college hockey. 
    This team plays their game, they can beat anyone.

    Harvard goes to UND next week.  We’ll see how they do, then we’ll talk possibly seeing Union in the post-season.  I’m not holding my breath…
