315 Hockey’s One-Timers 01/15/2023 – 01/21/2023

By Scott Kinville/315 Hockey.

315 Hockey’s One-Timers is our weekly look at the professional and college hockey scene in Central New York featuring brief observations (or one-timers if you will) of the teams we cover.

American Hockey League

Utica Comets

🏒 A blistering offense suddenly went cold over the past week. In three games played over the past week (all against the Crunch), the Comets averaged a paltry 1.3 goals per game and lost two of three games against their bitter rivals.

🏒 The offense received a boost on Friday, however as Nolan Foote was returned to the team by the New Jersey Devils. He made his presence felt on Saturday night, scoring the game-winning goal in overtime as the Comets defeated the Crunch 3-2 in Syracuse.


Syracuse Crunch

🏒 The Crunch won two of three games played against the Comets this past week, including handing their arch-rivals their first shutout loss of the season. The Crunch have been on a roll as of late, winning five of their last six games while climbing into third place in the North Division – four points behind the second-place Comets.

🏒 Alex Barré-Boulet became the franchise’s all-time leader in points on Friday night with an assist on a goal by Gabriel Dumont. He now has 242 points as a member of the Crunch.


Colgate Raiders Men and Women

🏒 The Colgate Raiders Men’s Team had a tremendous weekend. On Friday night they shut out Princeton at home 5-0, and on Saturday night they pulled off the upset of the year by taking down #1 Quinnipiac with a thrilling come-from-behind 3-2 victory. The Raiders now have a firm grip on fourth place in the ECAC standings and have a legitimate chance to move up further.

🏒 Goaltender Carter Gylander was outstanding all weekend. He had a nineteen-save shutout on Friday night and was instrumental in upsetting the Bobcats on Saturday night, especially in the closing minutes. With a stat line of 12-9-2 / GAA: 2.21 / Save Percentage: 0.925 / Shutouts: 2, Gylander may be one of the most underrated goaltenders in Division I.

🏒 Per Colgate play-by-play announcer John McGraw, Colgate Raiders Men’s Head Coach Don Vaughan picked up his 464th career victory on Friday night and is now 19th all-time in NCAA history.

🏒 The #5 Colgate Raiders Women’s Team had a bittersweet weekend. On Friday, they destroyed #10 Cornell at home by a score of 9-3 behind a five-point (two goals and three assists) effort by Kalty Kaltounková. On Saturday jubilation turned to disappointment for the Raiders, as they fell to the Big Red 4-2 at Cornell.

🏒 Danielle Serdachny, who is the second-leading scorer in Division I, recorded her 150th career point on Friday.

🏒 Goaltender Kayle Osborne returned to action on Saturday after missing nearly two months.

Utica Pioneers Men and Women

🏒 The #2 Utica Pioneers Men’s Hockey Team rampaged through Lebanon Valley over the weekend, defeating the Dutchmen 6-1 on Friday night, and then on Saturday night they set a school record for goals scored in a game and goal differential with a 16-1 drubbing of the home team. Jayson Dobay had six points on Saturday night (one goal and five assists) and Remy Parker scored four goals, giving him a total of five goals for the weekend. Parker’s fourteen goals on the season have him tied for third overall in Division III.

🏒 The Pioneers are now unbeaten in their last fifteen games. #1 Hobart lost on Saturday night to Elmira, opening the door for the Pioneers to potentially be the new number-one team in the country when the USCHO polls come out on Monday.

🏒 The #13 Utica Pioneers Women’s Team faced a tough test over the weekend at home against UCHC rival the Manhattanville Valiants. Utica goaltender Angela Hawthorne allowed only one goal over the course of the two games, leading the Pioneers to a 4-0 victory on Friday and then a 3-1 win on Saturday. The Pioneers are on a roll, they are on a thirteen-game winning streak and are undefeated at home this season.

🏒 Up next for the Pioneers is a Central New York showdown with the seventh-ranked Hamilton College Continentals at the Nexus center on Tuesday night.

Hamilton College Continentals Men and Women

🏒 It was a tough weekend for the Hamilton College Continentals Men’s Hockey Team. On Friday night they lost a heartbreaker at home 2-1 to the NESCAC-leading Amherst Mammoths. On Saturday night, they faced another tough opponent as they traveled to Geneseo to play the eighth-ranked Knights. The Continentals were unable to pull off the upset, as they lost 3-0.

🏒 The Men’s team is on the road this weekend for a pair of NESCAC games. On Friday night they play at Trinity and on Saturday afternoon they are at Wesleyan.

🏒 The #7 Hamilton College Continentals Women’s Team played only one game over the weekend. On Saturday they traveled to Cortland and took the Red Dragons by a score of 5-1. Nancy Loh, Abby Kuhns, and Claire McGennis led the way on offense with one goal and one assist each, and Cate Gallagher made thirteen saves in goal to pick up the win.

🏒 Up next for the Women Continentals is a huge matchup against the thirteenth-ranked Utica Pioneers on Tuesday night at the Nexus Center.

In this episode of 315 Hockey Live, Maura Holden and Maddie Hong of the seventh-ranked Hamilton College Continentals Women’s Hockey Team join the show to discuss the team’s season so far, looking ahead at the rest of the season including a huge upcoming game against Utica, a charity game they are having and more!

Syracuse Orange Women

🏒 The Syracuse Orange Women’s Team played three games last week. On Tuesday, they dropped a 4-1 decision at home to the tenth-ranked Cornell Big Red. Over the weekend they traveled all the way to St. Charles Missouri for a pair of games against CHA rival the Lindenwood Tigers. They split those games, winning on Friday 4-1 and losing on Saturday 6-3.

🏒 A pair of Orange players achieved big career milestones over the past week. Goaltender Arielle DeSmet recorded her 2,000th save and Lauren Bellefontaine earned her 100th career point.

Morrisville Mustangs Men and Women

🏒 The Morrisville Mustangs Men’s Team lost a pair of close SUNYAC games this past week, with the comeback efforts coming just short in both games. On Wednesday they lost 3-2 at Brockport, and they nearly pulled off an upset at #8 Geneseo on Friday night. The Mustangs were down 4-1 in the second period before storming back to tie the game. They eventually lost 5-4 on a late third-period goal.

🏒 Chris Mott scored for the Mustangs in both games this week.

🏒 The Morrisville Mustangs Women’s Team split a pair of NEWHL games over the weekend. On Friday they defeated the Potsdam Bears 4-3 at home. On Saturday, they ventured north to Oswego where they lost a close game to the Lakers by a score of 3-2.

🏒 Allie Davidson lit the lamp in both games for the Mustangs.

Oswego St. Lakers Men and Women

🏒 The #6 Oswego Lakers Men’s Team returned to action on Friday night after nearly two weeks off when they journeyed to Plattsburgh to take on the thirteenth-ranked Cardinals. Things didn’t go as planned for the Lakers in this one as they lost to their SUNYAC rivals 6-1. The following night they remained on the road in the North Country when they traveled to Potsdam to face another SUNYAC rival the Potsdam Bears. This time the Lakers came out on top, as they edged the Bears by a score of 4-3.

🏒 The Lakers lead the SUNYAC with a conference record of 8-2-0-0.

🏒 The Oswego St Women’s Team had a good week, winning both of their games at home against NEWHL opponents. On Friday they defeated the Buffalo St Bengals 3-1, and on Saturday they took down the Morrisville Mustangs by a 4-1 margin. With the wins, the Lakers are in second place in the NEWHL standings.

🏒 Ashlyn McGrath had a stellar weekend for the Lakers. She scored a total of three goals in the two games, including a shorthanded goal. McGrath is the team’s leading scorer, with twelve goals and five assists for seventeen points this season.
