First, thanks to Brian Sullivan for the kind words of introduction.
I’d like to take this chance to offer a more personal greeting. I’m replacing Josh Boyd, who posted his last weekend recap right below me.
I’m certainly stepping in after a hectic weekend, one filled with close finishes and a controversial goal in a pair of showdowns between some of the best in the ECAC and Hockey East.
Just a quick side note…as a Northeastern alum, I’ve certainly witnessed some heartbreak thanks to Boston College and Boston University, so I feel for ya’ Yale and Cornell.
While I’m a newcomer to the ECAC regular season, I’m not a stranger to the postseason or USCHO. I started for the site two years ago as an arena reporter before taking on the ECAC Northeast and MASCAC columnist duties for the Division-III side of things.
I also accompanied Brian to Atlantic City last year and have had a chance to cover an ECAC team in the last two NCAA tournaments.
So, in the words of Michael Scott: I’ve seen the finished sausage. Now I get to see how its made.
But I promise that’s the most you’ll ever hear about me. I’m looking forward to teaming with Brian to bring you coverage through the year. And I plan on learning a lot myself as the season progresses.
Lastly, I’d like to be easily accessible, so feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or @Nate_Owen41 on Twitter.
