Leadership front and center in Miami's success

Thursday, 11.11.2010 / 10:08 AM / On Campus

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

The Miami RedHawks are once again a favorite to challenge for the national championship this season, with a dynamic duo leading the way on and off the ice. Senior captain Carter Camper (9 goals, 24 points) and alternate captain Andy Miele (6 goals, 19 points) are ranked first and second in the nation in scoring heading into weekend play and have the RedHawks off to a 5-2-3 (3-1-2-1 CCHA) start, ranked fourth in the latest NHL.com poll (below).

But while Camper, who was named the Commissioner's Player of the Month for October, and Miele obviously help their team with their skills, the true measure of their impact can be measured in the way they lead in practice and off the ice. Both players live up to not only their star potential but also more importantly the "C" and "A" on their shoulders.

Berenson has built Michigan into an NCAA elite

Thursday, 11.04.2010 / 9:00 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

It's Oct. 15 in Durham, N.H., 24 hours removed from a top-10 matchup between Michigan and the UNH Wildcats in the fourth game of his 27th season behind the Wolverines bench. 

At 70 years young, Gordon "Red" Berenson ambles down the hallway to the visitor's locker room in the Whittemore Center, leading yet another group of young charges aiming for two major goals come March and April -- a 21st-straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament and a 10th NCAA title for his alma mater.

The 20 and nine are the two most impressive records in NCAA hockey history.

His 700th career coaching win a week before put him at No. 6 all-time, and second only to Boston University's Jack Parker for wins at one school.

Much work to be done for four new NCAA coaches

Thursday, 10.28.2010 / 8:58 AM / On Campus

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

There are four new coaches in Division I NCAA hockey this season, with three of the new coaches in the CCHA -- Jeff Blashill takes over at Western Michigan, Mark Osiecki at Ohio State and Chris Bergeron at Bowling Green. The other new coach is Chris Luongo at independent Alabama-Huntsville. On Campus recently chatted with all four new coaches to learn what they hope to bring to and achieve with their new teams.

Chris Luongo, Alabama-Huntsville -- After two seasons as an assistant to Danton Cole at Alabama-Huntsville, Luongo takes over as coach for the Chargers. Luongo, a former NHL player who also spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Wayne State, is looking to lead the Chargers to their first winning season since 2005-06, though they have made the NCAA Tournament twice after winning the now defunct CHA. To do so, Luongo plans to tweak things for sure, but also continue the culture of consistency he helped try to build working alongside Cole. He believes that having been in Huntsville for two seasons gives him an edge in doing so.

Bemidji State, Nebraska-Omaha join WCHA

Thursday, 10.21.2010 / 9:08 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

It was a no-brainer given geography, history and budgets for both teams.

With the dissolution of the four-team College Hockey America League, effective the end of last season, the Bemidji State Beavers in Minnesota were quickly granted admission by the Western Collegiate Hockey Association as that league's 11th team.

Shortly after Bemidji's move, the CCHA's Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks petitioned the WCHA for a transfer to become the 12th team.

Permission granted. 

A combination of major factors brought the CHA demise: Findlay and Wayne State had dropped men's hockey; significant travel costs and loss of class time for Bemidji State (Minnesota), Niagara University (upstate New York), Robert Morris University (Pennsylvania), and Alabama-Huntsville; the undercurrent of dissatisfaction across the other leagues that one team in a four-team league automatically qualifies for the 16-team NCAA tournament by winning the two-day CHA tournament.

Niagara, RMU complete new Atlantic alignment

The writing was on the wall the past several seasons.

Last year, it was etched into NCAA history with the decision to dissolve the four-team College Hockey America league when the regular season ended.

A combination of major factors brought about the CHA demise: Findlay and Wayne State had dropped men's hockey; significant travel costs and loss of class time for Bemidji State (Minnesota), Niagara University (upstate New York), Robert Morris University (Pennsylvania), and Alabama-Huntsville; and the undercurrent of dissatisfaction across the other leagues that one team in a four-team league automatically qualified for the 16-team NCAA tournament by winning the two-day CHA tournament.

NCAA opens 2010-11 men's ice hockey season

Thursday, 10.07.2010 / 9:25 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

They are the masters of the marathon, the sultans of spring.

With six appearances in the NCAA title game since 1998 and three championships, the Boston College Eagles will attempt to make history in the modern era by running the table to a third crown in four seasons. 

Michigan won three in a row and five in six years in the 1950s, the first decade of Division I play.

Picked by the puck pundits as No. 1 in the preseason polls, coach Jerry York returns 17 lettermen, including three seniors and a young but proven defense. Netminder John Muse -- 8-0 in the NCAA Tournament -- is one of those three; he enjoys the target all of his teammates will wear.

"I like the bull's-eye on the back as the No. 1 team in the country," Muse told NHL.com at the Hockey East media luncheon last week at TD Garden. "The good thing is we get to play at that level every night."

"The biggest concern is complacency," said York, who along with Boston University legend Jack Parker will be among the Lester Patrick Award recipients later this month. "We see it all the time at the college level after winning a national title. But I took the three seniors -- John Muse, Brian Gibbons and Joe Whitney -- aside over the summer, and I could see in their eyes and hear in their voices that that was not going to be a problem this year. 'We want to go out with three titles in four years,' they said."

When I first became captain here, Monsieur Beliveau came to me and said, 'You're going to be fine. You don't have to change, you got selected because of who you are.'
