Junior F Joe Pendenza (Wilmington, Mass.) scored two power play goals in the first period as No. 7 UMass Lowell defeated the University of Toronto, 5-2, Saturday in a college hockey exhibition game at the Tsongas Center.
UMass Lowell, which posted a 24-13-1 record last year (17-9-1 Hockey East), opens the 2012-13 season at home Friday night against the University of Vermont (7:00).
Toronto visits Boston University Sunday night at 7:00.
Two River Hawk freshmen - forward Michael Colantone (Cave Creek, Ariz.) and defenseman Gregory Amlong (O'Fallon, Mo.) - etched the scoresheet while freshman Ryan McGrath (O'Fallon, Mo.) dished out two assists.
Pendenza helped UMass Lowell break a 1-1 draw in the first period as he took advantage of two Toronto penalties, the first at 13:26 from McGrath and junior D Joe Houk (Richboro, Pa.); and the second at 19:58 from junior Josh Holmstrom (Colorado Springs, Colo) and McGrath.
Colantone opened the scoring at 7:54 in the first period via assists from sophomore F Terrence Wallin (Yardley, Pa.) and sophomore Scott Wilson (Oakville, Ont.), but the Varsity Blues equalized on a power play roughly two minutes later behind sophomore Paul Van De Velde.
Wilson gave UMass Lowell a 4-1 cushion at 19:13 into the second period when he took a pass from senior F Riley Wetmore (Swanton, Vt.) in the slot and fired home.
Toronto junior Michael Markovic capitalized on a power play at 11:31 of the third with help from senior D Matt Walters and sophomore D Dylan Heide, but Amlong notched his goal, also on the power play, at 19:19 with an assist to sophomore D Zack Kamrass (Atlanta, Ga.) to cap the scoring.
UMass Lowell outshot the Varsity Blues, 52-21, and was 3 for 9 on the power play. Freshman G Connor Hellebuyck (Commerce, Mich.) had 12 saves in 31 minutes while junior G Doug Carr (Hanover, Mass.) stopped seven shots in 29 minutes.
Junior G Garrett Sheehan had 47 saves for Toronto.

DURHAM, N.H. -- Trevor van Riemsdyk (Middletown, N.J.) scored a pair of goals and Justin Agosta (East Meadow, N.Y.) dished out three assists in the University of New Hampshire men's hockey team's 5-2 win in an exhibition game on Saturday night at the Whittemore Center.
UNH starting goaltender Casey DeSmith (Rochester, N.H.) played the initial 31:36 of the game and exited with 13 saves and the Wildcats leading 3-1. Jeff Wyer (Reading, Mass.) went the rest of the way between and made seven saves, all in the third period.
Dalton Speelman (San Jose, Calif.; one goal, one assist), Nick Sorkin (Rockville, Md. and Casey Thrush (Easton, Md.; two assists) also recorded multiple points for the Wildcats.
St. Francis Xavier goalie Joseph Perricone stopped 25 shots, including 12 in the opening stanza.
UNH led 2-0 through one period on the strength of a 14-6 shot advantage. The Wildcats took a 1-0 advantage at 10:17 when Agosta's shot deflected off Jeff Silengo (Madison, Conn.) into the goal. Thrush was also credited with an assist.
van Riemsdyk extended the lead to two goals with a power-play tally at 16:44 on a shot from the left point that sailed into the upper-left corner of the cage. Agosta, who slid the puck across the slot from the right point, and Speelman, who move the puck from low on the right side to the point, set up the goal.
The X-Men pulled within 2-1 with a power-play goal at 4:40 of the second period when Brennen Wray scored from close range. Jason Bast and Spencer McAvoy registered assists. The tally came with three seconds remaining on a five-minute major assessed against UNH; SFX was whistled for a minor during that span.
New Hampshire reestablished a two-goal lead, 3-1, on van Riemsdyk's second power-play goal of the night. From the lower-left side, Sorkin slipped a pass to the high slot, where the sophomore defenseman wristed a shot into the upper-right corner. Agosta picked up his second assist.
SFX, which recorded the 8-7 shot advantage in the middle frame, once again trimmed the deficit to one goal at 2:05 of the third period when Bast's centering pass from the right circle was redirected in front by Ted Stephens. Nick Pageau was also credited with an assist.
UNH responded with a goal at 11:53 when Speelman gained a centering pass in the slot and beat Perricone to give the 'Cats a 4-2 lead. Grayson Downing (Abbottsford, British Columbia), with the pass off the right boards, and Sorkin set up the goal.
The X-Men pulled Perricone in favor of an extra skater with 47 seconds remaining, but Scott Pavelski (Plover, Wis.) snapped a shot into the open net from the high slot with 29 seconds remaining to extend the home team's lead to 5-2. Thrush, who gained possession along the left boards at center ice, fed Pavelski for the tally.
New Hampshire opens the 2012-13 season with a four-game homestand at the Whittemore Center that begins Oct. 12 & 13 against St. Cloud State University. Opening faceoff for Friday's game, which will be televised on Live Well Network and FOX College Sports, is 7:30 p.m. Check your local listings for channel information. Saturday's start time is 7 p.m. Tickets are still available online at UNHWildcats.com or by calling the Whittemore Center Box Office at 603-862-4000 .

Yes I know. It's the first I've heard the arena name though and it sounds weird to me.
RMU picked 8th in AHC
RMU scores 10 in exhibition opener
The Colonials will open up the 2012-2013 regular season with a pair of road contests against the Quinnipiac Bobcats next weekend
Posted 08 October 2012 - 06:46 AM
Quinnipiac beat Maine last weekend. Should be interesting. I guess we'll see if RMU's for real very early this year.

Haha, sorry. "Votes" I wasn't sure if it was one or the other. I picked the wrong one.
Posted 10 October 2012 - 08:53 AM
This season is shaping up to be a big one for the Robert Morris Colonials both on and off the ice.
The Colonials are hosting two tournaments this season. One is the inaugural Three Rivers Classic at Consol Energy Center on Dec. 28 and 29 that also features Penn State, Miami and Ohio State.
The participants in the other tournament won’t be determined until March. RMU is the host team for this season’s Frozen Four, also held at Consol Energy Center.
That notoriety, combined with the NHL lockout that makes Robert Morris the top hockey program in Pittsburgh, makes for a lot of anticipation before the Colonials even hit the ice.
“It’s going to be a historic year with the Three Rivers Classic and hosting the Frozen Four,” Robert Morris coach Derek Schooley said. “That has given us more name recognition, and certainly at this point with Robert Morris being the top level of hockey in Pittsburgh, it gives us a chance to show what we can do.”
Despite the loss of two all-league players, last season’s Colonials finished with the same league record and just five points out of first place thanks to a large senior class and the goaltending of Brooks Ostergard. RMU finished with the top penalty kill in the nation (89.9 percent).
Schooley said senior Eric Levine (12 games, .921 save percentage last season) will capably fill Ostergard’s skates in net. But the loss of seven forwards, including five of six penalty killers, will be the main challenge.
“We’re comfortable with our goaltending and defense,” he said. “We’re comfortable with our seven returning forwards. Our challenge is seven new players coming in and learning the system and getting used to the college game.”
Robert Morris lost three of its top four scorers to graduation but back are senior Adam Brace, who led the team with 14 goals last season, and sophomore Cody Wydo, who put up impressive numbers in his rookie campaign (13 goals, seven assists).
Levine got valuable time in net filling in for Ostergard, who missed several games last season due to an injury.
When told that another Atlantic Hockey coach said he expects Levine to be in the top five goalies in the league, Schooley said, “We have every confidence in Eric Levine. He’s worked and waited for this chance and he’s going to do very well.”
Among the newcomers is David Friedmann, who scored 44 goals in 89 games last season in juniors.
“He moves the puck and skates well,” Schooley said. “We’re really happy with the size and skill of our rookies (four freshman forwards are over 6-feet tall). We’ve always been an average-sized, good-skating team. But we decided to get a little bigger without sacrificing skating ability and I think we’ve done that.”
Robert Morris is picked to finish eighth in the coaches preseason poll, but did pick up a first-place vote.
“That just goes to show you the parity in the league,” Schooley said. “It shows that there are a lot of teams with a shot to win.”
About the Colonials
2011-12 overall record: 17-17-5
2011-12 AHA record: 13-9-5 (Seventh)
2012-13 predicted finish (coaches poll): Eighth
Key losses: G Brooks Ostergard, F Trevor Lewis, F Nick Chiavetta
Players to watch: F Cody Wydo, F Adam Brace, D Colin South
Impact rookie: David Friedmann had a whopping 110 points for the Jr. Canadians of the OJHL last season.
Why the Colonials will finish higher than the coaches poll: If several freshman have rookie seasons like Wydo and Scott Jacklin did last season and RMU can get solid goaltending from Eric Levine, they’ll be in contention for home ice.
Why the Colonials will finish lower than the coaches poll: The loss of 10 seniors, including five of six penalty-killing forwards, presents a challenge.
