Hoof Beats: Notes for the season, WCHA.tv, and promos

Some statistical tidbits to look out for as the 2016-17 season starts in just one week:

Top UAH scorers since the 2007-08 season
G A Pts
Andrew Coburn 21 33 54
Chad Brears 19 27 46
Max McHugh 19 26 45
Brandon Roshko 3 42 45
  • Junior Max McHugh may be the Chargers’ most potent scorer in a decade. He has 19 goals and 45 points in his UAH career, leading all active Chargers in just two seasons. McHugh has the third-most goals and third-most points in the last nine seasons.
  • Four players have a shot to catch and pass the all-time UAH record for career games played, which is 137 by Joel Bresciani (1999-2003). Brent Fletcher, Cody Marooney, and Brandon Carlson, at 105 games played each, can catch Bresciani if they play 32 of UAH’s 34 regular-season games this season (plus any postseason play). Matt Salhany, with 103 games played, could also catch Bresciani.
  • Matt Larose

    UAH has two senior goaltenders, Matt Larose and Carmine Guerriero, for the first time since the 1986-87 season (Barry Friedman and Jim Mitchell).

  • Guerriero has played 3,911 minutes in his UAH career, which is fourth-most in school history. He is 747 minutes (about 13 full games) from catching Mark Byrne (1999-2003) for third place. Guerriero’s .914 save percentage is second in UAH’s modern Division I history and third all-time.
  • Should the Chargers make the WCHA playoffs, the first game will be the 1,000th varsity game in UAH’s hockey history. The Jan. 7 game against Minnesota State will be the Chargers’ 500th varsity home game.
  • Freshman Austin Beaulieu of Coral Springs will be UAH’s second player from Florida and first since Mike Dalton (1982-86). Freshman Sean Rappleyea of Sayre will be UAH’s second player from New Jersey and first since James Kodrowski (1998-2000).
