Penn State falters versus Minnesota; Set to face the Spartans this weekend

If you’ve been reading my coverage of Penn State hockey all season long then you probably know I haven’t been that impressed with this team. Granted, it’s going to take a few year’s of recruiting classes to become a power in college hockey and nobody thought they would be successful right away. The one thing I kept wanting to see out of Gadowsky’s squad  was a full 60 minute effort night in and night out. Despite dropping both games to the No.1 Golden Gophers this past Sunday and Monday, I finally saw Penn State compete for a full 60 minutes. …

Future Flyers Report: McGinn’s quiet return to NHL, Larsson traded in the USHL

After taking part in six NHL games earlier in the season, Tye McGinn made his way back to the Philadelphia Flyers’ lineup this weekend, as both Matt Read and Zac Rinaldo were out with injuries. His two-game tenure with the squad wasn’t as noticeable as his time with the team earlier in the campaign. McGinn failed to register a point and produced one shot on net overall in his two games, as he worked on two different lines in Philly’s loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday and played with Sean Couturier and Vincent Lecavalier on Sunday in the …

Penn State Welcomes No.1 Minnesota to Happy Valley

It’s been well-documented that year two for Penn State as a Division I hockey program hasn’t gone according to plan. The Nittany Lions have struggled mightily this season as they’re 4-10-1 overall and sit last in the Big Ten Conference. It’s safe to say it’s been a disappointment thus far given the talent on the roster. Penn State is coming off of a 8-2 thumping at the hands of Boston College two weeks ago at the Three Rivers Classic in Pittsburgh. It doesn’t get any easier for Guy Gadowsky and his squad as the Lions’ are set to host No. …

Future Flyers Report: Vasiliev shouldn’t be ignored

When it comes to talking about defensemen in the Philadelphia Flyers’ system, the two biggest names are Samuel Morin and Shayne Gostisbehere for obvious reasons. In addition to these two, Robert Hagg has received some recognition as a second-round pick with a lot of upside. With the Adirondack Phantoms, the tandem of Mark Alt and Oliver Lauridsen look to be two defensemen that could one day be on Philly’s blue line. Another d-man who could surprisingly wear the Orange and Black one day is Valeri Vasiliev. Picked 201st overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Flyers, Vasiliev was …
