Merrimack and Mercyhurst will meet for the first time in its team’s history this weekend, as Merchyhurst travels to North Andover, Mass. to take on Merrimack. Merchyhurst is still looking for its first win of the season, as the Lakers dropped their first three games.
Connecticut opens up its season, in Minnesota, taking on Minnesota St. Mankato for a pair of games. Brant Harris and Jordan Sims are the leading scorers of returning players both scoring 31 points last season. UConn has a lot of experience in goal as the Huskies return senior goalie, Matt Grogan, who led the team last season with 14 wins.
Last week was an up and down one for Sacred Heart knocking off NO. 1 Massachusetts-Lowell, but the Pioneers then dropped a home game to Rensselaer the following day. Sacred Heart has a re-match of last weeks loss against RPI though as the two teams meets again on Saturday. Alex Vazzano stopped 34-of-35 shots against UMass Lowell, and he could be relied upon again this weekend to carry the load in goal.
