Good reading

There’s no shortage of pre-season preview articles and lists for the college hockey community to devour as the first official games approach. Here are just a few:

College Hockey News issued a pre-season “all CHN” team with junior blueliner Matt Gilroy (photo) making the first team and senior wing Pete MacArthur the second. Analyst Dave Starman opined that Mac “has the best slap shot of any forward in the country.” CHN’s two installments of Things To Watch (1, 2) include the BU-Cornell and BU-Michigan matchups, which it calls “can’t miss” games, and the well-regarded Terrier freshmen class.

Inside College Hockey has begun its own series of conference previews, including one on Hockey East. WCHA, CHA and CCHA previews are posted too. also has gotten into the act and offers a CHA preview that provides an introduction to a Robert Morris University team that the Terriers will meet for the first time. RMU earned an upset win last season over eventual CCHA champion Notre Dame. Later this week, we’ll post a preview of Alaska-Anchorage, BU’s second game opponent at the Nye Frontier Classic. That is coming to us courtesy of The UAA Fan Blog, with whom we’re conducting a team preview exchange.
