Five Things To Know

  • The Warriors dropped both contests last weekend against Boston University (3-2) and UMass Lowell (6-4.) Merrimack had a 2-0 lead midway through the second period against the Terriers before a comeback spoiled the win. The following night in Lowell, Merrimack fell behind 6-1 before a furious comeback attempt fell just two goals shy.
  • Zach Uens’ strong rookie campaign continued against the Terriers and River Hawks. He notched a par of assists in Friday’s game, before he assisted on another Saturday to up his season total to ten. He trails just defense partner and classmate Declan Carlile (14) in assists on the team.
  • The future is bright for the Warriors. NHL Central Scouting recently released its Mid-Term rankings with plenty of Merrimack representation. Five players either currently on the roster or committed to the Warriors were on the list, which was matched by only Boston College in Hockey East. Uens, Carlile and Jere Huhtamaa were the current players on the list.
  • Tyler Irvine has become one of the deadlier options on the power play in the NCAA. The senior forward leads the Warriors with five power play goals, which also has him in a tie for 14th in the nation in the category. Logan Drevitch is not far behind with four tallies on the man advantage so far on the campaign.
  • The Catamounts come to Lawler in search of their first victory in Hockey East play. UVM is 0-11-1 in the league with its lone point from a 3-3 tie at Boston University in November. Head coach Kevin Sneddon’s group is 3-4-2 in non-conference play with wins over St. Lawrence, Union and Lake Superior State. Jacques Bouquot (2-9–11) and Ace Cowans (6-4–10) lead the team offensively and Stefanos Lekkas has started all but one game in net and carries a .914 save percentage and a 2.80 goals against average into the weekend.
