Blue-White This Saturday at The Whale
Get A Look At The New Team
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Your first chance to see the 2012-13 Yale men's hockey team is Saturday at 5 p.m. at Ingalls Rink. The Bulldogs, whose official practices began last Friday, have a Blue-White event on Oct. 20 that does not require a ticket.
The Yale players, led by captain Andrew Miller (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.), begin their warm-up routine at 5 p.m. and go Blue vs. White soon after.
The Elis, coming off a 16-16-3 campaign last winter, will showcase eight newcomers who could make an impact this season. Five forwards and three defensemen joined the squad this fall.
Miller, an All-ECAC forward, is one of the best passers in the history of the Yale program. He has 91 assists (115 points) in 104 career games. Miller (7-29-36), senior Antoine Laganiere (Ile Cadieux, Que., 19-14-33) and junior Kenny Agostino (Flanders, N.J.., 14-20-34) are the leading returning point producers from 2011-12.
The Blue has a pair of seniors, Nick Maricic (Alta Loma, Calif.) and Jeff Malcolm (Lethbridge, Alb.), and sophomore Connor Wilson (Cary, N.C.) competing for time in the net. Malcolm had three shutouts and a scoreless streak of 226:39 in 2011-12.
