Postby Tom Nolette » Fri Oct 30, 2015 2:50 am

It’s a brand new era for UNE men’s ice hockey

The University of New England men’s hockey team is ready to usher in a whole new era.
Led by new head coach Kevin Swallow, the Nor’easters open the season Saturday at home when they face off against No. 12 ranked Hobart at the Harold Alfond Arena. Hobart finished last season ranked No. 10 in the final USCHO.com Top-15 Division III poll.

“It’s exciting to see where we exactly stand against some of the best teams in the country right off the back,” Swallow said. “I wouldn’t have it any other way. I know the guys are all pumped up and excited, ready to go. It should be a good game on Saturday against Hobart for sure.”

UNE struck again less than two minute later when Jimmy Tich put home a rebound of a shot by Dylan Bengston. Ben Pearl then made it 3-0 with Big Blue on the power play, snapping in a wrist shot from the right circle.

Salvucci gives #3 Norwich a 1-0 OT win over UNE

Box Score
Video Replay of UNE vs. Norwich

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Kevin Salvucci scored with 2:51 elapsed in overtime to give third-ranked Norwich University a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the University of New England in a New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) game played Saturday afternoon (Nov. 7) at the Harold Alfond Forum.


The Cadets remain unbeaten on the season at 3-0, 2-0 in NEHC play, while the Nor'easters suffered their first setback (1-1-1, 1-1-0 NEHC).

With a face-off coming in their defensive zone, the Nor'easters called a timeout. The Cadets would win the ensuing draw, and eventually Salvucci worked his way in front from behind the cage on the right side before directing a shot just inside the left post. Tyler Piacentini and Nick Pichette helped set-up the goal.

The game was a defensive battle the entire afternoon, as both teams were aggressive with their forecheck and physical play. Cadet goalkeeper Ty Reichenbach had several big stops to keep the Nor'easters off the scoreboard -- one coming on a Nik Dotolo breakaway in the first, and another on a point-blank shot in the low slot by Jimmy Tich midway through the third. Reichenbach would finish with 27 stops.

Mason Riley had 28 saves for the Nor'easters. He came up with a nice stop of a bid by Salvucci 6:00 into the third period to keep the game scoreless at the time.

Both teams return to the ice next Friday with 7 p.m. NEHC games. Norwich hosts Saint Anselm College, while the Nor'easters make the short trip up the road to take on rival University of Southern Maine.

Hickey gives Plymouth State 3-2 OT win over UNE

Box Score

PLYMOUTH, N.H. -- Shannon Hickey scored with 2:57 elapsed in overtime to give Plymouth State University a 3-2 overtime victory over the University of New England in a New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) women's game played Friday evening (Nov. 13) at Hanaway Rink.

The Panthers have won two in a row to improve to 2-3 overall and 2-1 in the NEHC, while UNE is now 0-3 overall and in conference play.

Hickey was sent up the left side of the rink on a pass by junior Frederike Brazeau-Lalonde, and Hickey skated through the left circle and lifted a backhander up and over the goalie's shoulder for her first goal of the season and the game-winner.

Freshman goaltender Emelie Lindqvist made 27 saves to earn the win in the PSU goal. Junior Sydney Helmbrecht made 20 saves for UNE.

The teams traded first-period goals. Senior Kelsey Lynch scored her second goal of the season for PSU at the 13:58 mark, cutting to the middle and firing a wrist shot through Helmbrecht's pad. UNE came back to tie the game in the final minute of the period when freshman Julianne Sheehan made a nice move around the defense and slipped a shot past Lindqvist from in close for her first of the season.

PSU pulled ahead 2-1 with just 2:27 to go in the second period. Helmbrecht made a nice save on a shot by freshman Kelsey Roy, but junior Lauren Connelly put home the rebound to give the home team a one-goal lead heading into the third.

UNE tied the game at 3:29 of the third period, as a shot by junior Melissa Boudreau deflected off a Panther defenseman in front and went into the net just inside the right post.

The Nor'easters finished with a 29-23 advantage in shots. Both teams were unsuccessful in two power play tries.

The NEHC slate continues Saturday at 1:00 p.m. with PSU visiting Norwich University and UNE moving on to Saint Michael's College.

No. 10 UMass Boston topples UNE 8-3 in NEHC play

Box Score

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Matt Lemire had a hand in half of University of Massachusetts Boston's offense with a goal and three assists, as the Beacons earned an 8-3 New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) win over the University of New England Friday evening (Nov. 20) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The Beacons -- ranked 10th in the United States College Hockey Online (USCHO) poll -- remain unbeaten at 5-0-0 overall, 3-0-0 in conference games. UNE suffered its third consecutive setback to dip to 1-3-1 overall and 1-3-0 in NEHC play.

UMass Boston came out flying in the opening period, establishing a 3-1 lead before settling for a 3-2 advantage heading into intermission. The Beacons outshot the hosts 18-7 over the initial 20 minutes.

Garrett Sanipass got UMass Boston on the scoreboard at 2:07 of the frame, snapping home a wrist shot from the right circle on an odd-man rush. The Nor'easters got the goal right back, however, as scored from the right circle with a wrister. The Beacons grabbed a one-goal lead once again just 27 seconds later when a shot by Lemire deflected off goaltender Mason Riley's glove but trickled over the goal line. The lead doubled to 3-1 at 15:04 on a nifty move by Zach Lindsay. Lindsay carried the puck behind the net before crossing in front from the right side and stuffing it home. UNE once again sliced its deficit to one (3-2) when Dylan Bengston back-handed a pass into the goal from the slot.

UMass Boston had a quick start in the second to seize momentum. Tyler Bishop scored from the slot on the power play to give the Beacons a 4-2 lead just 41 seconds into the period before Lindsay tallied his second of the evening to push UMass Boston's lead to three (5-2) at the 3:20 mark. UNE got one back a little more than four minutes later when Armand Uomoleale netted his third goal of the season.

The Beacons would pull away with a trio of markers in the final frame. Colin Larkin scored at 3:09, followed by Drew Gannon's first career goal at 5:16. David MacGregor added his first career tally at 15:24 to complete the scoring for the evening.

Billy Faust earned the win in goal with 33 saves for the Beacons, who finished with a 43-36 edge in shots on goal.

Riley had 12 stops in 15:04 of playing time before giving way to Joe Noonan, who recorded 23 saves the rest of the way.

Both teams return to action tomorrow with NEHC tilts. UMass Boston travels up the road to face the University of Southern Maine (4 p.m.), while the Nor'easters host No. 6 Babson College (4 p.m.).

The Beavers doubled their lead four minutes later on a rebound conversion by Dan Casey. Tim Searles' initial shot was stopped, but Casey poked the puck into the goal from the top of the crease. Seligman had a secondary assist on the play.

Matt Brazel would notch his first career goal at 14:50, firing home a high wrist shot from the right circle. Josh Casper set-up the scoring play.

Babson had the lone goal of the second period when Charlie Ackerman stuffed home a rebound of a shot by Rob Devaney, who had rushed up the ice after getting a feed from Casper. Ackerman's score came just 59 seconds into the frame.

UNE got on the scoreboard at 7:19 of the third while on the power play. Trevor Fleurent snapped in a wrist shot from the right circle with Brady Fleurent and Ian Rodden setting the play up.

Babson's Bobby Hall completed the game's scoring with 11 seconds remaining.

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Trevor Fleurent scored three goals and assisted on another to help lead the University of New England to an 8-3 win over Bowdoin College in a non-conference men's ice hockey game played Tuesday evening (Nov. 24) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The victory was the first-ever for UNE (2-4-1) over the Polar Bears (0-2-1) after dropping the first nine meetings in the all-time series.

In what turned out to be a high-scoring contest, goals were tough to come by in the opening period. Despite being outshot 15-10 in the frame, UNE notched the lone marker when Brady Fleurent one-timed a centering pass from the slot for his first collegiate goal.

The Nor'easters would double their lead at 12:20 of the second as Tom Gildersleeve converted a feed from Blaise Healy.

Bowdoin cuts its two-goal deficit in half just over a minute later as Chris Wallace snapped a wrist shot from the high slot just inside the right post.

UNE would get that goal back four minutes later on Armand Uolomeale's fourth tally of the season. Set-up on the doorstep, Uomoleale poked home a pass across the slot from Dylan Bengston to give the hosts a 3-1 cushion headed to the third.

The Nor'easters put the game away with five consecutive goals to open the final frame. Trevor Fleurent notched his hat-trick with three scores, while Healy and Sam Vikich got into the scoring column.

Bowdoin received goals from Matthew Lison and Camil Blanchet in the final 5:22 to complete the scoring for the evening.

Connor Maloney recorded 38 saves in his first collegiate start to earn the win for UNE. Offensively, Brady Fleurent, Healy and Bengston each contributed three points to go with Trevor Fleurent's four-point evening.

Nathan Colannino had 19 stops in the opening 43:31 for Bowdoin before giving way to Erick Wurman, who totaled 12 the rest of the way.

The Nor'easters will play in the PAL Stovepipe Tournament hosted by Southern New Hampshire University this weekend. UNE faces Daniel Webster College in an opening-round game Saturday at 1 p.m.

Bowdoin takes on Endicott College Saturday at Colby College before hosting nationally-ranked UMass Boston Sunday at Watson Arena.

UNE advances to final of PAL Stovepipe Tourney

Box Score

HOOKSETT, N.H. -- Ryan Quinn broke a 2-2 tie with a goal at 3:48 of the third period, as the University of New England men's ice hockey team advanced to the finals of the PAL Stovepipe Tournament hosted by Southern New Hampshire University with a 4-2 victory over Daniel Webster College Saturday afternoon (Nov. 28) at The Ice Den.

The Nor'easters (3-4-1) will face UMass Dartmouth for the tourney title tomorrow at 4:10 p.m. The Corsairs defeated host SNHU, 3-0, in the day's other tilt. Daniel Webster, now 3-4-0, will take on Southern New Hampshire in Sunday's first game.

The two teams had traded goals over the opening two periods until Quinn notched the game-winner on a goal assisted by Tom Gildersleeve and Blaise Healy. Quinn would add an empty-netter with just under a minute remaining to give the Nor'easters some additional breathing room.

Coming off a hat-trick in Tuesday's 8-3 win over Bowdoin College, assistant captain Trevor Fleurent gave UNE a 1-0 lead at 14:30 of the first. Linemates Dylan Bengston and Brady Fleurent set-up the goal.

The Eagles drew even inside the last minute of the frame when Sandy Gray tallied his first collegiate goal.

Despite outshooting Daniel Webster 22-4 in the second period, the Nor'easters were unable to establish a lead on the scoreboard. Gildersleeve notched an unassisted marker at 16:03, but the lead would be short-lived as Ryan Murray scored on the power play with 32 seconds remaining to knot the score, 2-2, heading into the final period.

For the game the Nor'easters held a commanding 42-20 lead in shots on goal. Mason Riley had 18 saves to record the win for UNE, while Morgan Hudson totaled 38 for the Eagles.

The Nor'easters will be seeking their second PAL Stovepipe Tournament title. UNE topped UMass Boston in a shootout to capture the event in 2011.
