Morning Edition: 10/17/14

Matt Dewkett

Welcome to the SBN College Hockey Morning Edition, your guide to all of college hockey's latest news.

Starting off, Nate Wells opened up the mailbag, answered some reader questions. Among them, somebody asked if there should be panic about the Gophers offense only scoring seven goals last weekend. I've composed an answer in the form of this poem:

You should not panic in San Francisco

You should not Panic! at the Disco

The Gophers' O give no need for panic

Nor does the Wild's, for they have Vanek

Hockey East

There are reasons to be optimistic about Boston University this year besides just Jack Eichel.

Jeff Cox put together an All-Massachusetts team. Obviously a very good squad, but who knew the goaltending situation in Massachusetts was that grim?

WCHA

If you in the Twin Cities and are a Comcast subscriber you can watch a number of Minnesota State games this season, including Saturday's game against Minnesota Duluth.

NCHC

Jake Guentzel is currently tied for the national lead in scoring, and that might not change for a while. He's in line to have a huge season.

Big Ten

Eddie Wittchow will likely play this weekend, meaning Wisconsin won't have to resort to playing a freshman forward on the blue line against Northern Michigan.

Penn State forward Eric Scheid will face his former team in Alaska this weekend.

Recruiting

Auston Matthews is 50/50 to play college hockey. He'll be a special player regardless of the route he chooses.
