After 14 Valiant Years, Marshall To Move On From Manhattanville Ice Hockey

0
PURCHASE, N.Y. – The Manhattanville College Department of Athletics and Recreation would like to congratulate men’s ice hockey head coach Arlen Marshall ’10, M.S. ’12. The long-time Valiant has announced that, after 14 years as a member of the Manhattanville family, he is moving on from the program and on to a new and exciting opportunity.

“For the past 14 years, it has been a privilege to see Arlen develop from an outstanding player for the Valiants into their respected head coach,” said Manhattanville Director of Athletics and Recreation, Julene Caulfield. “His stats speak for themselves and his legacy will forever be imprinted in our history.”

Marshall has spent the previous eight seasons at the helm of the Valiants’ program and last season became just the second coach in Manhattanville men’s ice hockey history to amass over 100 victories. He leaves the program second on the all-time wins’ list with 101.

During those eight seasons on the bench, Marshall guided the Valiants to seven conference tournament berths, including his most successful campaign during the 2018-19 season when Manhattanville won the UCHC Tournament Championship and earned an invitation to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time since 2007-08. Marshall helped lead the squad to the NCAA Quarterfinal Round, which tied for the second-best finish in program history.

Under the two-time conference Coach of the Year selection, the Valiants totaled 35 all-conference selections, five Conference Players of the Year, five All-America selections, five Academic All-District honorees and two Academic All-Americans.

Prior to becoming head coach in 2012-13, Marshall also spent two years on the bench as an assistant coach for the Valiants. With his help, Manhattanville posted two straight winning seasons and two ECAC West Tournament berths.

Prior to his coaching career, Marshall’s Valiant tenure began as a four-year player for Manhattanville from 2006-10. He served as a two-year co-captain and also wore the “A” as a sophomore. Marshall graduated having played on three ECAC West Tournament Champion squads, including two trips to the NCAA Tournament. The Valiants ended the season with a top-10 national ranking in each of his four seasons, including the No. 2 overall ranking after finishing 2006-07 as the national semifinalists.

Individually, Marshall completed his playing career as one of just three players at the time to have reached the 100-point plateau, thanks to 38 goals and 64 assists over 105 games. Additionally, at the time of his graduation, he was third in program history in points, fourth in assists and sixth in goals, as well as second in games played and sixth in power-play goals.

“We are thrilled for [Arlen’s] new opportunity, but we are also obviously looking forward to seeing him remain involved as an important alumnus of our men’s hockey program, as well as return to coach and play at our alumni games,” continued Caulfield.

OJHL 2020-21 Season Update

“OJHL announces plans for 2020-2021 season; prompt player development path with teams committed to season without fans if required”


Mississauga, ON – The Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) announced today the league’s plan for return to play for the 2020-21 season.
It is usual and customary for the OJHL and its clubs to commence their operations in the last half of August with regular season games typically commencing in early-September. 


While the ongoing pandemic may delay this season’s start, with a number of new measures and return to play protocols aimed at player, staff and fan safety being required for implementation, the OJHL is working closely with all relevant authorities – inside and outside of hockey – with a view to starting up “new normal” operations for the upcoming season.


The OJHL has developed several starting date scenarios for commencement of the 2020/2021 regular season inclusive of potential start dates as early as September with approval from all respective authorities. In the meantime, the league has initiated a “Return to the Rink Committee” who have been working to develop guidelines and procedures that meet all of authority requirements to allow teams to have their players back on their development paths with the safety of the athlete and support staff at the forefront, with key mandates consisting of:

  1. Developing and implementing a comprehensive protocols-based plan for player’s and staff safety.
  2. Initiating a detailed plan focused on the return of its players to the ice safely beginning in mid-to late-August with a high focus on player development in accordance with all applicable Provincial and Municipal regulations
  3. Establish a multi-scenario schedule with return to play as early as September if approved in conjunction with Member Branch, Provincial and municipal guidelines
  4. Evaluating and subsequently confirming league-wide team approval of regular season commencement without fan revenues if necessary

“The OJHL Board of Governors are first and foremost committed to the safety of not only our players but all of the support staff of our clubs and the communities we play in”, said Marty Savoy, OJHL Commissioner.“Our Governors understand the importance of the development stage our players are at and as such have made the decision that once approval has been provided to return to full hockey the OJHL regular season will start regardless if fans are allowed in our buildings”.


The league also announced it has developed a two-phased process to allow players to get back to the ice which includes a phase with a specific emphasis of the return to training and development of the player, inclusive of inter-squad and inter-team scrimmages. A second phase wasalso announced where full games will be played during a regular season and playoff schedule once authority approval is granted.


Phase 1“Training”– The training and evaluation of players under the current guidelines provided by the Ontario Government.
Phase 1 includes modified “scrimmages” that meet all regulatory guidelines for team sports, as well as conditioning, on ice skilled base practices, individual and team tactics, and player evaluation. The Training Phase will begin mid to end of August with teams in regions that fall within the allowable activities of the Ontario Government’s return plan.


Phase 2 “Competition”- The return of full games and league schedule within the OJHL.The full season will begin once approval has been provided by the Ontario Government and the league’s governing bodies.The start of the OJHL 2020-2021 season will not be dependent on the allowance of fans at games and will commence once approval has been provided for full hockey.


“While we want to get back to having our clubs play hockey, it is difficult in the face of so much uncertainty for the OJHL to be less than clear and definitive.  We are confident that the league will be ready when all necessary “green lights” have been given,” stated OJHL Chairman Marc Mercier. 

“Until such clarity emerges, the OJHL is committed to providing its teams, players, staff, volunteers, fans and municipal leaders with weekly updates. The last thing we wish to do is proceed without lots of forethought and planning or in a manner that is not in compliance with all applicable health and hockey authorities or otherwise compromises the league’s unwavering commitment to health and safety of all of those involved.”

“Jr Sabres to take one year leave of absence from OJHL league play due to COVID-19”

Mississauga, ON – The Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) and the Buffalo Jr Sabres Hockey Club jointly announced that the club will be taking a one year leave of absence from the league due to issues related to border travel with COVID-19.


“The Buffalo Jr Sabres are tremendous partners within the OJHL and have always put the interest of their players at the forefront of their decisions”, stated Marty Savoy, OJHL Commissioner.“After careful consideration due to the uncertainty of the travel over the US/Canadian border, the Buffalo Jr Sabres have made the difficult decision, which the OJHL supports, to have the club not compete in the 2020-2021 season.”


The team and the league have been in communication for a number of weeks as the situation of travel between Canada and the United States continuesto be monitored.With so much uncertainty as to when the boarder will be open to allow for OJHL teams to travel inter-country between the US and Canada,the collective decision has been made to have the Jr Sabres take a leave of absence for the 2020-2021 season.


“The Buffalo Jr Sabres are part of the fabric in the OJHL.Our teams and players have had great success over our many years in the league”, said team Governor, Larry Playfair .

“We are the host of our league’s annual showcase, we are an entrenched member, which makes this mutual decision so difficult.  We are thankful for all of the support provided from the Commissioner, league staff and all of our league teams. We look forward to returning after this brief pause to help further strengthen the OJHL as the League of Choice.”


The league will be working with the team over the next number of weeks for the dispersal of the players on the Jr Sabres roster.
Nick Tuzzolino, Jr Sabres General Manager and Associate Coach, offered comment on the difficult decision by stating:


“During this difficult process, the league and our leadership team has always focused on the players first. We have a great group of players and young men, and they deserve the opportunity to be in control of their options for next season. While it is unfortunate and upsetting that the mutual decision to pause this relationship had to be made, we did all we could working together to do what’s right. We know this is just a pause for this season, and look forward to being a valuable member of the OJHL in the future.”

(Rochester, NY) – The Buffalo Sabres announced that the team has signed forward Brett Murray to a two-year, entry-level contract.

In 62 contests in Youngstown, the Bolton, Ontario native led all USHL skaters with 41 goals and finished second in the league with 76 points on his way to earning USHL First All-Star Team honors.

Prior to his second stint with Youngstown, the 6-foot-5, 235-pound forward played two seasons at Penn State University (Big-10), where he produced seven points (1+6) in 33 career games. In his first season with the Nittany Lions, Murray helped the club claim the Big-10 Conference Championship and later went on to help the program make its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.

NWHL Announces 2020-21 Season Timeline

0

BROOKLYN – In the NWHL’s continuing efforts to manage the COVID-19 pandemic while prioritizing the wellbeing of all players, staff, fans and the community, the league announced a timeline for the upcoming season.

The regular season will begin in January 2021, with each team playing a full season of 20 games, and the Isobel Cup Playoffs are expected to be completed by the end of March. The league will aim to hold its popular annual All-Star Game, but not until after the Isobel Cup Playoffs are completed.

Although regular season games will start in January, the NWHL and the league’s six teams will continue their focus on enhanced opportunities for player development starting in September 2020. Optional on-ice practices and off-ice training will be available for all teams and players beginning the week of September 21 and formal practices will begin the week of October 19. Throughout, NWHL teams will strictly adhere to the protocols established by infectious disease experts, the NWHL medical team and community officials in each market.

In April, the NWHL formed a COVID-19 Safety Committee to set forth a plan for a safe and strategic return-to-play plan. The committee is led by infectious disease and Sports Health experts, including doctors Andrew Feldman, MD, and Guillem Gonzalez-Lomas, MD, from NYU Langone Health, one of the top academic medical centers in the U.S. and an official NWHL partner. The committee also includes league executives and representatives of the NWHL Players’ Association. The committee’s principal priority has been formulating a plan that protects the well-being of all participants and fans.

“The Safety Committee has and will continue to prioritize NWHL player, staff, fan, and media safety above all else while adapting to the ever-changing COVID-19 situation,” said Dr. Gonzalez-Lomas, assistant professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Health expert at NYU Langone Health. “We are eager to meet the challenge ahead and do our utmost to safely return the athletes to the sport they love.” 

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a difficult and fluid situation, the league’s plans regarding in-season medical protocols, along with announcements regarding ticket availability and arena capacity for fans, will be made prior to the start of the season. In every step, decisions will be guided by the science and at the direction of doctors.

NWHL Players’ Association Statements

Anya Packer, NWHL Players’ Association executive director: “The NWHLPA is well-represented on the league’s COVID-19 committee. The PA has been included in all discussions in regards to player safety and league scheduling, and co-authored the overall return-to-play protocol. We feel our voices have been heard thus far and we will continue to ensure that the safety and well-being of the players is at the forefront of all discussions and formal protocols.”

Allie Thunstrom, Minnesota Whitecaps player, committee member: “We are undoubtedly eager to get back on the ice and can’t wait for the season to start. However, we also recognize the challenges everyone faces by the global health crisis, and we want to ensure that not only are we protected but our fans, media, coaches, support staff, and arena personnel are protected as well. The league has done an awesome job at including us in these discussions. While a slight delay to the start of the season is tough, I feel strongly that everyone’s safety and health will continue to be at the forefront of all decisions. We will continue to practice and train in accordance with state, provincial, and league guidelines. When the time comes, we will be ready to battle for the Isobel Cup in Season 6 and to play for the best fans in the world.”

Elmira’s MacLean Signs With Swedish Team

0

GRÄSTORP, Sweden — The Elmira College men’s ice hockey Class of 2020 has sent another student-athlete to the professional ranks, as the Swedish team Grästorps IK announced on Wednesday, July 22, that it signed former Soaring Eagle Spencer MacLean ’20.

MacLean is the seventh member of the Class of 2020 to go pro, joining classmates Christian Lloyd ’20, Connor Powell ’20, Spencer Carter ’20, Andrew Pucci ’20, Nick Ford ’20, and Anthony Parrucci ’20. He is the second EC alumnus to venture overseas to continue his career at the next level, after Lloyd signed with the Marseille Hockey Club in France last month.

A 6-foot-5, 210-pound forward, MacLean will utilize his size and physical style of play by transitioning to a role as a two-way defenseman with Grästorps IK. Providing offense from the blue line should come as no problem for the Kleinburg, Ontario, native, who compiled 50 points on 24 goals and 26 assists in 85 games with the Soaring Eagles. He also scored nine power-play markers throughout his collegiate career, and reached double-digit points for the third time in four years with 14 (5g-9a) during his senior season.

Grästorps IK is a member of Sweden’s Division II HockeyTvåan. In 2019-20, the team posted a 13-3-6 record, the second-best mark in HockeyTvåan Södra A. The club boasted the third-highest scoring offense while tying for the third-fewest goals allowed. Located in southwestern Sweden in the town of Grästorp, the team plays at Åse och Viste Arena.

BUFFALO – As a member of the Connecticut Whale last season, Kayla Meneghin scored three goals and added an assist in her four games against the Buffalo Beauts. Saying “It’ll be nice to have that firepower on our side now,” Buffalo GM Nate Oliver has signed Meneghin to a contract to play the upcoming NWHL season with the Beauts.

“I’m proud to sign with the Buffalo Beauts because hockey is my passion,” said Meneghin. “I’m excited to have the opportunity to play with the Beauts this season, and to continue experiencing the passion that I have for this game. Buffalo is a great city with passionate and loyal fans, and I can’t wait to join my new teammates for Season Six. LET’S-GO-BUF-FA-LO!”

In 2019-20, her second season in the NWHL, the 5-4 forward from New Jersey was 4-4-8 in 14 games with the Whale.

Prior to her time in Connecticut, Meneghin was a three-time All-American at SUNY Plattsburgh. She finished her career fourth all-time in NCAA Division III history in points (188) and fifth in assists (102). She played 117 games for the Cardinals and was named First Team AHCA All-American in her sophomore and junior years, and Second Team All-American as a freshman and senior.

“Kayla will significantly bolster our offense,” said Oliver. “As we saw last season, she is a high-caliber player. Our staff is confident that Kayla’s game will continue to development and that she will have a true breakout NWHL season in her first year with us.”

UCHC Postpones 2020-21 Competition Until January 1

0

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – As NCAA Division III athletic conferences and institutions around the country continue to postpone intercollegiate competition for this Fall, the United College Hockey Conference (UCHC) has also announced changes to its competition schedule for the 2020-21 season.

The UCHC Presidents Council has decided that, due to the current evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, conference competition will be postponed until January 1, 2021, provided it is safe to resume play at that time.

“Institutions will have the ability to enrich the student-athlete experience by conducting athletic related activities based on campus protocols and guidance from local health authorities at their discretion.” This also means that member institutions will still have the ability, based on their own campus regulations and limitations, to compete in non-conference contests until then. Additionally, should the pandemic exhibit positive progressions, the UCHC will revisit the resumption of conference play prior to January 1.

See below for the full statement from the UCHC:
The United Collegiate Hockey Conference has announced changes to its competition timeline for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The United Collegiate Hockey Conference’s Presidents Council has been closely monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ability to safely compete this fall. The health of the conference’s student-athletes, coaches, officials and staff are of the utmost importance. At this time, given the current magnitude and evolution of the pandemic, the President’s Council voted unanimously to postpone conference competition until January 1, 2021 provided it is safe to resume at that time.

Institutions will have the ability to enrich the student-athlete experience by conducting athletic related activities based on campus protocols and guidance from local health authorities at their discretion. Members may participate in non-conference competition should they deem it safe to do so. Should there be significant positive developments which may permit safe competition prior to January 1st, the UCHC council will reconvene to discuss resumption of conference play. The UCHC is in the process of modifying schedules to accommodate this decision and provide a meaningful conference experience for our student-athletes in the Winter of 2021.
