Quick Hits Around Hockey East

  • Multiple media outlets are reporting that 97 born South Boston native Cam Askew has de-committed to Northeastern. He is one of the top 97s, so this is a huge blow to Northeastern. In more recruiting news for Northeastern, according to a Dubuque, Iowa police log, top USHL scorer and Husky commit Michael Szmatula was arrested for underage drinking. With Cam Darcy leaving the program earlier this month, good news has been hard to come by for second year head coach Jim Madigan. The on ice performance has been equally bad. After a 2-0 start, including an upset win over Boston College, the Huskies have not recorded a win since, with the exception of two against lowly Alabama-Huntsville.
  • One of Maine's top freshman, Ryan Lomberg, will be out for tonight's contest against Vermont, due to a violation of team rules.
  • Merrimack appears to be banged up, but expect sophomore Josh Myers to be back in the lineup tonight, according to Mike McMahon of The Mack Report.
