Five minutes later the Razorbacks scored their first of what would be six unanswered goals. Two goals in the second period by Zach Palmer and Sky Chambers evened up the score at 3-3 going into the third period. In the third period, the Razorbacks caught fire. Their hot streak started less than one minute into the period when Trey Lowry put one in the net for the Hogs. Less than one minute later Lowry scored again for the Hogs, giving them a 5-3 lead. The Ice Hogs ended up scoring two more goals in the third period thanks to Alex Kueser and Matt Hehr. A 7-3 win completed the sweep.

The 2017-18 season is underway for both the Division I and Division III Ice Hogs.

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday September 15-17, the Division III Ice Hogs traveled to Springfield, MO, to play in the Pacific Region Showcase.  The Razorbacks played games against the University of Kansas, Missouri State University, and the University of Nebraska.

Friday night the Hogs faced off against the University of Kansas Jayhawks. The Razorbacks got off to a hot start scoring three goals in the first period. Overall the Hogs scored five goals, but the Jayhawks made a comeback in the third period.  With the score knotted at 5, the Jayhawks scored the go-ahead goal with just 7 seconds remaining in regulation en route to securing 6-5 win.

Saturday the Hogs faced the Ice Bears from Missouri State University. The Bears got on the board first—scoring three quick goals. The Hogs got on the scoreboard for the first time in the third period with a goal from Alex Keuser.  Ultimately, the Razorbacks fell 3-1 to Missouri State.

Finally, on Sunday, the DIII Ice Hogs played the Cornhuskers from the University of Nebraska.  Sixteen minutes into the third period the Hogs were down 6-3. Sky Chambers and Matthew Lasky each scored a goal near the end of the third period but it was not enough to overcome the Cornhuskers.

The Hogs finished the weekend with a record of 0-3, against three strong teams. Alex Keuser and Matthew Lasky were the leading scorers for the weekend, as both recorded two goals. With four assists, Drew Hill led the way for the team in assists.

This coming weekend, September 22-23, the Division III Ice Hogs will play their first home games against Robert Morris University-Peoria. The two teams played twice last season at Peoria, where they split the series 1-1. That series included an exciting overtime shootout win by the Razorbacks.

Tickets are $8 general admission; $3 students (or 2 for $5 students).

Also this weekend, the Division I Ice Hogs will travel to Pelham, AL to take on longtime rival:  the University of Alabama. The two teams faced off just once last season in a game that ended in an overtime shootout victory for the Razorbacks.  Dating since 2009, the Razorbacks have posted an overall 17-5-1 record against the Frozen Tide–including both Division I and III games.  This will be the first time the teams will square off in Pelham in the Division I format.

The Razorbacks enter the Alabama series with a record of 2-0 after sweeping the Redbirds of Illinois State in their first series of the season two weeks ago.  The Tide enter the series with a record of 1-1 after splitting their first series with Liberty University.  Puck drop against the Tide this weekend will take place at 7:00 PM on both September 22 and 23.

DI sweeps ISU on the road; DIII heads to Pacific Region Showcase

Last Friday and Saturday, September 8-9, the Division I Ice Hogs faced off against the Illinois State University Redbirds. The Hogs came out of the weekend with two victories, sweeping the Redbirds for the first time in program history.

On Friday, the Hogs struck first in the first period with a goal by Cory Delisle, assisted by Jesse Foskey and Sine Chadi.  The Redbirds evened things up prior to the end of the first.  Arkansas regained the lead in the second period with a goal by Luc Gradisar, assisted by Cal Owens and Cory Delisle.  Three minutes later the Redbirds struck back and pulled ahead in the third period with just three minutes to play.  After an ISU penalty, the Razorbacks pulled their goaltender for a 6-4 advantage and, with just thirteen seconds left to play in regulation, Chris Stovall scored the equalizer.  The Hogs carried the play in overtime, but the game went to a shootout where both Chris Stovall and Cory Delisle scored to secure a 4-3 Arkansas victory.

The Redbirds got off to a hot start in Saturday’s rematch.  Although the Hogs scored first on tally by Tyler Valentin, assisted by Andrew Pellegrino and Chris Salmon, the Redbirds answered just nine seconds later.  After adding two more goals in the first and still another in the second, the Hogs were trailing 4-1 midway through the contest.  Across the balance of regulation, however, the Razorbacks scored three unanswered goals thanks to Collin Young, Sine Chadi, and Landyn Howze.  Overtime again failed to produce a winner and, like Friday, the game headed to a shootout.  Thanks to a Cory Delisle goal, Arkansas secured a second come-from-behind victory in as many days.  Arkansas will see ISU next year in Springdale, AR on February 9 and 10.  In the meantime, the DI Razorbacks are idle this weekend before heading to rival Alabama for a pair of games on on September 22 and 23.

This coming weekend, September 15-17, first-year Head Coach Colin Hesse and the Division III Razorback Ice Hockey team will open up its tenth season by playing in the Pacific Region Showcase in Springfield, MO.

Coming off of a 13-19-1 season, the Ice Hogs will face the University of Kansas, University of Nebraska, and Missouri State University in the Showcase. The Division III Razorbacks seek redemption after posting a cumulative 1-9 record against those three teams last season.  All time, the Hogs hold a 23-15 record against the three teams (Kansas: 4-4; Nebraska: 4-4; Missouri State: 15-7).

Like the Division I roster, the off-season brought numerous changes to the Division III team.  In total, the Razorbacks added twelve new faces to the Division III roster. The Hogs return fifteen players from last season, including last season’s leading scorer, Evan Kerr.  Senior Andrew DeNome returns as captain.

On Friday and Saturday, September 8-9, the Division I Razorback Ice Hockey team will open up its third season by taking on the Illinois State Redbirds on the road in Normal, Illinois.  Like Arkansas, Illinois State began Division I play in 2015-16.

Coming off of a rocky 8-29-1 season that saw the Hogs finish the 2016-17 campaign #40 in the country, the Ice Hogs enter this opening series 3-5 lifetime against the Redbirds. The Hogs are looking to bounce back from a 1-3 record against the Redbirds last season, including an overtime loss on October 22, 2016 at the Jones Center.

For its part, Illinois State finished the season nearby the Hogs ranked #36 in the nation with an overall record of 11-19-2.  ISU saw several changes in the off-season, most notably Bobby DiNardi replacing former head coach Mike Marquardt.  Coaching changes aside, the Redbirds signed a trio of impact forwards in Connor Boscaccy, Taylor Dickert, and Robert Kalata.  ISU also returns two of its three top scorers from last season–Jeremy Norway and Joey Bower. 

The Razorbacks made numerous changes this off-season–adding fifteen new faces to the roster including a total overhaul in net.  The Hogs return fourteen players, including last season’s leading scorer Luc Gradisar who scored five goals against the Redbirds in last season’s four games series.  The Hogs will be led by their five captains:  Jacob Brown (senior), James Haddock (senior), Landyn Howze (senior), Jesse Foskey (senior) and Collin Young (junior).

The puck drops at 7:00 pm on Friday night and 1:00 pm Saturday afternoon.

 

2017-18 rosters set

The University of Arkansas Men’s Hockey Team today announced its ACHA Division I and III rosters for the 2017-18 season.  In doing so, Arkansas enters only its third year of Division I play and simultaneously its third season fielding two teams.  The University of Arkansas is the only SEC school to field two hockey teams and was the first SEC school to elevate its flagship team to Division I.

Entering the 2017-18 season, the Division I roster is young—boasting just four seniors.  The twenty-nine man roster includes seven juniors, five sophomores, and twelve freshmen.  In total, the Division I team welcomes fifteen new players to a roster that includes just one true freshman.  Team captains for the Division I squad are James Haddock, Jacob Brown, Jesse Foskey, Landyn Howze, and Collin Young.

The Division I team will look to rebound from a challenging 2016-17 season that saw the team open the season strong, but falter midway through the fall semester as injuries piled up.  The 2017-18 season opens tomorrow at 4:45 pm with a free preseason scrimmage against the Springfield Express—a junior team from the Western States Hockey League.  After the Express contest, the team will formally open its season on the road against the Illinois State Redbirds on September 8 & 9.

The Division III Razorbacks are likewise young.  Andrew DeNome returns to captain a roster that includes just three returning seniors and seven returning juniors.  Five sophomores and twelve freshmen round out first-year Head Coach Collin Hesse’s twenty-seven-man roster.  The Division III team will look to improve on a thirteen win season that, for the first time since the 2008-09, saw the team exit the SECHC conference tournament without a win.  The Division III Hogs open their season on the road against Kansas in the Pacific Region Showcase on September 15.

Across both rosters, players from eighteen different states made the team alongside five Canadians, one Slovenian, and one player from Sweden.

Division I Hogs set to host Springfield Express in pre-season scrimmage

On Friday, September 1, the Division I Razorbacks welcome the Springfield Express to the Jones Center to open the 2017-18 season—the team’s third season in ACHA Division I play.  The scrimmage is free and open to the public.

The Express, perennial contenders in the WSHL, are a junior hockey team.  The concept of junior hockey is a foreign one to many.  After or in the middle of their high school hockey careers, most future college hockey players postpone their educational pursuits to continue their hockey careers in juniors hockey.  Depending on their age (junior hockey eligibility begins at sixteen), some players spend up to three years playing junior hockey across the country (or, in some cases, in a different country). The players move away from home and stay with so-called “billet” or host families in order to develop and mature as players while preserving their college eligibility.

The Express arrive in Arkansas after posting a 36-16 record and competing in the WSHL playoffs last season.  Like the Razorbacks, the Express saw substantial changes in the off-season—former Head Coach Jeremy Law assumed the same position with conference-rival Missouri State.  In his place, Coach Ambrefe comes to Springfield with a tremendous hockey resume and experience as both a player and coach.  Last season, Ambrefe was the Head Coach and GM for the Casper Coyotes of the WSHL.

The Express will be facing three familiar faces on the ice—former Express players Chris Stovall, Tobias Sjolund, and Collin Young.  After finishing the 2016-17 season at 8-29-1, the DI Razorbacks welcome 15 new faces to the team.

The puck drops at the Jones Center on Friday at 4:45 pm.
