Great Expectations

The Falcons were picked to finish fourth in both the media and coaches WCHA preseason poll. This is the highest preseason ranking the Falcons have received in Chris Bergeron’s command.

Goaltending: 1A and 1B?

With Andrew Hammond graduated and playing for the Binghamton Senators of the AHL, Coach Bergeron has said his goal is to use both sophomore Tommy Burke and incoming freshman Tomas Sholl as his netminders this season.

[quote style=”boxed”]I’ve seen the rotation work and take teams to the national tournament and deep in the national tournament. Every goalie wants to be the No. 1 guy. They don’t want to share the net. But it’s not a bad thing to have that focus on winning one game every weekend and you have a partner who is just as good and has that same focus. – Head Coach Chris Bergeron[/quote](Quote courtesy of the Sentinel-Tribune)

Battle of the Birds

The Falcons and Golden Hawks have only met twice before. The series is tied at one game apiece. The teams first met in 1975 and last met in 2010.
