tickets just went on sale middle of last week you’ll want to get on those quickly
with an exciting schedule upcoming for Ferris State hockey the Bulldogs on the
ice looking like an interesting squad bringing back all but one defenseman and
more than 70% of the team’s scoring from a year ago as well as a great class of
newcomers I caught up with head coach Bob Daniels earlier today see what he
had to say about the upcoming season you know always looking forward to Harrison
the start of the year and this year as much as any I’m really looking forward
to it too it’s what we’re returning up front we have depth and scoring we have
depth and and all three four positions we’re adding some good young players to
the forward positions on defense two years ago we cut our teeth with four
freshman defenseman now those four freshman defenseman are our jr.
defenseman in our lineup in net we’ve got Justin Kapelmaster returning he’s
played a lot of hockey for us as well as Roni Salmenkangas and we’re excited
about him goaltender from Finland Cullen Barber returns back in goal he
looks good you know he came back in terrific shape so overall I’m excited
about the start of the season I think we’ve got some really good leadership in
that locker room on all promising season as long as the
coach does their part should be a very good year I talked a little bit
about some of the incoming guys and I know a couple of really exciting
additions out front at the forward position and maybe talked about some
of the offense you hope to get from some of your new players sure well Jake
Transit joining hunter Wednt Ethan Stewart so we’ll Justin Michaelian and
we’re adding a lot of experience there
a couple those guys played 2-3 years in junior hockey Jake Transit’s younger
very talented so it’s a good mix of freshmen forwards we’re adding on defense
we’re adding Cooper Zech british columbia junior hockey league defenseman
of the year led the league in scoring for defenseman
he’s got tremendous offensive skills he’s gonna be a good addition should
he’s gonna see some power play time right away that is the oh he’s very very
skilled very talented gonna take him a little while there’s gonna be the
adjustment period for him going into college hockey’s you figure out
what can I get away with in terms of carrying the puck and trying to create
offense and it what’s gonna create turnovers that could be problematic for
us and you know as coaches I think the only way we he’s got a have to explore
those options see how far how much can I buy it off and just like Chad Billins it’s
very similar you’re gonna have to turn a few pucks over and then learn from
those mistakes and you start really back and he’s exploring with what you can get away
with offensively but we’re excited about Copper joining the team
as mentioned an exciting 20 game regular season schedule opening October
6th and 7th in exhibition play the Bulldogs will take on the USA NTDP
squad coached by bulldog alum Seth Appert and with a man on that team tabbed to be
the number one pick in the upcoming NHL drafted in Jack Hughes certainly exciting
