Lakeland/Panas and Hen Hud aren’t wasting any time.
The first game of the Section 1 season get under way at 4:30 p.m. at Brewster Ice Arena. It’s the first game for new Sailors coach Mike Grean, who is not unfamiliar with this group after spending a couple of years on the bench as an assistant.
My season preview is going to run on Thanksgiving Day, ahead of a busy weekend. And we’ll probably be out covering two games a day starting next Friday. I’ll post the rest of the preseason scouting reports this week as they come in from the coaches, and we’ve got a new feature on the rules that will kick off. Larry Scapperotti, who is the Westchester Ice Hockey Officials’ chief whistle blower has graciously agreed to clear up some of the confusion and will start the series with an explanation of the new rule that prohibits checking of a player deemed to be in a vulnerable position. Going forward, you will get to pick some other rules you’d like to see interpreted.
I’m heading to MetLife Stadium for Giants and Cowboys, but will be looking for a score from BIA. You know the drill, if you’re out watching please tweet at me or post a comment about the game and I’ll pass it along.
