Welcome back for another year of ECAC Hockey. The regular season gets underway today at 7 p.m. when Colgate hosts Army West Point in the grand opening of the Class of 1965 Arena. The Raiders will have plenty of new faces in the lineup, as Colgate has nine freshman this season. That may lead to some up-and-down play throughout the year, but I think the Raiders get the new season and new arena started on a positive note with a win over the Black Knights.
Finally, one note as the season gets underway. Please welcome Michael Leboff as the new USCHO co-columnist for ECAC Hockey this season. He has an impressive resume and should be a great addition to USCHO’s coverage this season.
