Player to Watch Junior Aaron McLeod opens the WCHA season after a career weekend at Miami Oct. 7-8. McLeod helped BSU down the nation’s No. 1 team, 5-3, Friday with a career-best two goals, and after an assist, three points. The Junior now has 10-8=18 carrer points, but in the Beavers’ last 28 games, McLeod has contributed 7-5=12.

The Match up

The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team breaks the seal on it second season as members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association this weekend as it hits the road for two-game set at Colorado College. The nationally-ranked Tigers welcome the Beavers to World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colo. to open the series Friday at 8:37 p.m. (CST) before wrapping up the series Saturday at 8:07 p.m. (CST). Bemidji State is coming off of a 1-1 nonconference weekend at then-No. 1 Miami University (Ohio). The Beavers knocked off the nation’s top-ranked team. 5-3, Friday before falling in the series finale, 3-2. BSU finished its first season in the WCHA with an 8-15-5 mark in league play before making a run through the first round of the WCHA playoffs and winning its Red Baron WCHA Final Five quarterfinal match up with Minnesota Duluth, before bowing out to Denver in the semis. BSU returns 20 players from its 2010-11 roster, including Jordan George. The junior forward was the team’s scoring leader a year ago posting 17-19--36 points and the team top goaltender in senior Dan Bakala. Bakala saw time in 31 games, posting a 14-13-4 record with three shutouts, a .919 save percentage and a 2.47 goals against average. Friday’s series-opener also serves as the Tiger’s official season-opener. CC played two game during the exhibition season defeating McGill, 3-2, Oct. 2 and dropping the U.S. Under-18 team Oct. 8, 5-0. The Tigers capped the 2010-11 season 23-19-3 overall and a 13-13-2 mark in league play to finish sixth. A healthy Jaden Schwartz returns to the CC line up for 2011-12. The sophomore led the Tigers in scoring a year ago with 17 goals and a team-high 30 assists, despite missing 15 games due to injury. CC also returns the services of its goaltender corps. Joe Howe led the crew posting a 2.94 goals agasint average and .903 save percentage playing in 36 games.

The Rivalry

The Beavers and Tigers enter the weekend with a very short history. The teams have logged just six previous head-to-head contests with CC holding a 3-2-1 edge in the series and a 3-1-0 advantage in Colorado Springs. With that said, BSU was unbeaten in two WCHA meetings with the Tigers a year ago. The teams played the Feb. 18 series opener to a 5-5 tie before BSU captured a 2-1 victory Feb. 19. The BSU-CC series got its start with a single nonconference game Dec. 12, 2000.

The Unparalleled Tradition

The 2011-12 season represents the 13th at the NCAA Division I level, and the 56th year of intercollegiate competition, for a BSU program which has assembled one of the finest traditions in all of American collegiate sport. u BSU owns 13 NAIA, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III national titles. u The Beavers have captured 21 conference titles in 55 seasons of intercollegiate competition. u In 2009, BSU became the first No. 16 seed to ever earn a spot in the Frozen Four. In just its 10th year at the NCAA Division I level, only one team, the 1958 Denver Pioneers, found its way to college hockey’s grandest stage faster. u BSU has developed seven NHL players, six Olympians and 82 All-America honorees. u BSU has compiled an all-time record of 982-487-91 (.658) in 1,562 games.

Western Collegiate Hockey Association coaches picked Bemidji State to finish 10th in the 41th Annual Grand Forks Herald Preseason Coaches’ Poll. A tenth-place finish is just where the Beavers end the 2010-11 season with a 8-15-5 mark in league play. The Beavers garnered 30 points in the poll to six points behind University of AlaskaAnchorage. Denver University was forecast as the favorite to win the 2011-12 regularseason and the MacNaughton Cup. The Pioneers garnered seven of 12 first-place votes and 115 points to edge University of North Dakota (110).

Oh captain, My captain

Junior forward Ben Kinne (St. Paul, Minn.) will captain the Beavers during the 2011-12 campaign. Senior defenseman Brad Hunt (Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) and junior blueliner Jake Areshenko (Port Coquitlam, British Columbia) will have the “A” on their jerseys designating them as alternate captains.

Playing close to home

Seven of the 28 players on the Beavers’ 2011-12 roster hail form the state of Minnesota. Drew Fisher calls International Falls his hometown, Shea Walters is from Hibbing, Sam Rendle is from Grand Rapids and Ben Kinne, from St. Paul, Danny Mattson, from Minneapolis, Matt Hartmann, who calls Hugo home, and Sam Windle, from Maple Grove, are from the Twin Cities-metro area.

Conference Openers

In the 42 years during which the BSU hockey program has been affiliated with a conference, the Beavers have opened their conference season with a victory on 26 occasions. The Beavers are 26-15-1 (.646) in league season-openers and are 50-29-5 ((.638) in conference schedule-opening series. The Beavers have yet to win a WCHA-season-opening game (0-1-0) after dropping last year’s opener to North Dakota, 5-2.

Familiar look

Tom Serratore returns 20 letter winners from a year ago including Jordan George and Brad Hunt. George posted a career-high 17-19=36 points in 2010-11 to lead the team, while Hunt registered 3-18=21 to finish fourth on the team. BSU returns 59 percent of scoring for a year ago, which includes 62 percent of its assist scoring (90-of-145), 49 percent of its goal scoring (43-of-89).

Road warriors

The Beavers will have to adapt to playing on the road quickly in 2011-12 as eight of their first 10 game of the season will take place away from home. BSU was 7-9-2 on the road a year ago, including a 7-4-3 stretch on the road after Jan. 7, 2011. The Beavers are already 1-1-0 this season.

Poll Superlatives

In 2010-11, the three-goal mark was a threshold for Bemidji State. The Beavers were 0-15-2 when allowing more than two goals and were 13-3-2 when scoring at least three. BSU won just one game last season when scoring fewer than three times--a Feb. 12 1-0 victory at Michigan Tech and garnered two points when allowing more than two goals--a 5-5 tie with Colorado College Feb. 18 and a 3-3 deadlock with Minnesota March 4. In 2011-12 BSU is 1-0-0 when scoring in excess of three goals, and is 0-1-0 when scoring fewer than three.

General Notes

Div. I-Era Records

BSU 18th in all-time wins Bemidji State became the 18th program among the 58 current members of NCAA Division I to post its 900th all-time victory when it defeated Ala.-Huntsville, 3-2, on Dec. 15, 2006. BSU’s 980 victories currently rank 18th all-time among current members of Division I. Cornell is next ahead of BSU, in 17th alltime with 1,002 victories. Seventeen Division I programs have posted 1,000 wins, including 2010-11 BSU foe Minnesota which leads Division I with 1,631 all-time victories, and is the only program in the nation with 1,600 or more all-time wins, while Michigan is second with 1,528 victories.

Quick to strike

Scoring first in 20 of 38 contests of 201011 the Beavers lit the lamp during the first minute of play three times a year ago. Even more, the Beavers found the back of the net on their first shot on goal in six games last season. BSU was 10-8-2 when scoring first. BSU has yet to score first in 2011-12.

Climbing BSU’s Division I assists li st

Brad Hunt has accumulated 70 assists during his first 114 games, or three complete seasons as a Beaver to settle into second on the BSU Division I assists list and seventh on BSU’s all-time assist-scoring by defensemen list. His three assists versus Miami Oct. 7-8 helped him to climb past BSU greats Andrew Murray (2001-2005) and Luke Erickson (2003-07) on BSU’s Division I-era assists list to second behind Matt Read (2007-11) (78).

BSU versus the nationally-ranked

In 2010-11 the Beavers played 17 games against teams holding down one of the nation’s top 15 rankings, which included three of the top four teams according to USAToday and USA Hockey Magazine. BSU was 7-8-2 versus the nation’s top 15 last season. After going 0-5-1 versus nationally-ranked competition during the first two months of 2010-11, the Beavers are 8-4-1 versus the top 15 since Dec. 3. BSU is 1-10 versus the nationally-ranked in 2011-12 Since the Beavers made the jump to the NCAA Division I ranks for the 1999-2000 campaign, BSU is 15-46-4 (.262) versus teams in the top-15. With that said, BSU is now 13-11-2 (.583) versus the top 15 since the beginning of the 2008-09 campaign.

Offensive Defenseman

Junior defenseman Brad Hunt has been a big factor for BSU on both ends of the ice since becoming a Beaver in 2008-09. In addition to his duties in BSU’s defensive zone, he has been a true offensive threat--especially on the power play. As a freshman, he was third on the team scoring 9-23=32 points with a team-leading 7-16=23 coming on the man advantage. As a sophomore he had seven goals and a team-leading 26 assists to pace all BSU defenders, while ranking sixth among the nation’s top blueliners (0.89 ppg). His 17 points (5-12=17) on the power play again paced the team. Last season, he had two goals and 18 helpers. Twelve points (2-10=12) have come on the man advantage to place him fourth on the team in power-play scoring. This season he enters the second week of play tied for the team lead in points (0-3=3) and leading the team with three assists and has one power-play point (0-1=1).

175 in the books

In his 11th season as a collegiate head coach, BSU’s bench boss Tom Serratore recently achieved another milestone--his 175th victory as a head coach. He is 179-147-38 (.546) since inheriting the Beaver hockey program from legendary R.H. “Bob” Peters prior to the 2001-02 season. Serratore is second at the school in victories by a head coach behind Peters, who posted 702 wins at BSU from 1966-2001.

Put it in the books after two

Since making the jump to NCAA Division I in 1999-2000, the Beavers are 154-1012 when leading after two periods of play, which includes an 11-1-0 mark in 201011. Heading into its March 5, 2011 game, BSU had not lost a contest when taking a lead into the third period since Jan. 18, 2008 at Colorado College--a streak spanning 48 games (46-0-2). But the Gophers mounted a comeback to tie the game in regulation and win 20 seconds into overtime ending the nation’s longest current streak of wins without blowing a lead after two periods.

The Hunt for power-play goals

In his fourth season, defenseman Brad Hunt has piled up 14 power-play goals, including seven in 2008-09, which matched a BSU Division I-era record for powerplay goals by a defender. Hunt is currently tied Clay Simmons (1999-02) for BSU’s

Beaver scoring by class

Buoyed by career scoring numbers from Matt Read and Ian Lowe, the Beavers’ 2010-11 BSU scoring by class seniors class led the points race with 42 goals Seniors 41g 52g 93 pts and 56 helpers. The junior (15-46=61) class Juniors 13g 44a 57 pts ranked second with a five-point cushion over Sophomores 21g 34a 55 pts the sophomores (22-34=56), while the freshFreshmen 9g 9a 18 pts man class, which has 19 points (10-9=19) to -through Mar. 17, 2011 its credit, rounds out the group. This season’s juniors currently lead BSU’s scoring race with 5-3=8 points after the first weekend. Next is the seniors with 1-4=5 points, followed by the sophomores (1-1=2). The BSU freshman class has yet to log a point this season.

Don’t call it a shutout

Held scoreless in a Dec. 11 game at Wisconsin, BSU was been shutout twice in 2010-11. The last time the Beavers were blanked three times in a season was 2000-01.

Penalty killers...

This season, BSU has killed off 8-of-11 (.727) opponent power-play opportunities. In 201011, BSU’s penalty-kill unit held opponents scoreless on 133-of-168 opponent man advantage opportunities (.792) and was 106-for-134 (.791) in WCHA play.

Freaky Friday

Although Bemidji State was victorious in the first game of series three times after the start of the new year, in 2010-11 BSU was a meager 4-10-4 in the first game of the weekend, while the team has experience much greater success, a 10-7-1 record, in the final game of a series. The Beavers was been out scored 55-43 in game one this season, which included a 48-36 deficit in 14 Friday contests versus WCHA competition.

Man Advantage

BSU has struggled to get its power-play unit clicking early. In 2011-12, BSU is just 1-of-6 (.167). Bemidji State finished the 2010-11 season 26-for-127 on the power play (.205), while it was 21-of99 on the man advantage in WCHA play.

Power Shortage

BSU completed 2010-11 12th in the league in penalties taken with only 99 power-play opportunities in WCHA play--that is 51 fewer opportunities than Colorado College and North Dakota which led the league in chances with 150 apiece.

Shoot the Puck

BSU was out shot 25 times last season to the tune of 1,146-951 overall and 939-712 in league play. BSU was 8-14-3 in those games.

Then there were seven

Matt Read, a 2011 graduate of Bemidji State and the Beavers’ Division I-era scoring leader, made the Philadelphia Flyers’ 2011-12 opening-day roster and scored his first NHL goal in the Flyer’s second game of the season. Read’s trip to the NHL makes seven products of the Beaver Hockey program to skate in the NHL ranks. He joins former BSU goaltender Matt Clime (20052009) and his teammate Andrew Murray (2001-05) as the only other former Beavers currently in the NHL.

Its share of OT

Extending their March 17 WCHA Final Five quarterfinal game versus Minnesota Duluth to overtime, the Beavers completed the 201011 seasons playing in 12 overtime games, marking its most since playing in a schoolrecord 15 in 2002-03. In the 11 years since the Beavers moved to Division I, they have escaped overtime with at least a tie in 75 percent (64) of the 85 games that have needed extra time to decide the outcome. Since March 11, 2006, BSU is 11-6-17 in games extended to sudden death, including a 3-4-5 record in extra time in 2010-11.

Directions to the scoring column

With nine new faces in the BSU line up, the opening of the WCHA season brings with it many collegiate firsts--games, goals, assists. Sophomore Garrett Ladd and junior Matt Hartmann (0-0=0) remain the only BSU veterans without a point to their name.

Assistance from the crease

January 7, BSU’s blueliners produced a goal and three assists including a helper from goaltender Dan Bakala. The assist was the third of his career and first to come from between the pipes for the Beavers since Bakala contributed to a goal Nov. 12. With three in his career, he is just two behind Jim Scanlan who holds BSU’s all-time record with five during his career.

Its a fine line...

Last season, 19 of BSU’s 38 games were decided by one goal or less, which included seven one-goal losses by the Beavers. Bemidji State was 7-7-5 in games decided by a goal or less. BSU is 0-1-0 in one-goal games this season.

I am Iron Man

Brad Hunt is BSU’s current Ironman. Since stepping on campus in the fall of 2008, he has dressed and played in each of the Beavers’ 114 games consecutively. Matt Read set a new mark for game played during BSU’s Division I era a year ago, playing in 147 games for BSU, which included 143 consecutively.

Bak-stopping Bemidji State

Dan Bakala turned away 210 of 227 shots in BSU’s final six outings of 2010-11, which included three consecutive 40-plus save efforts and a career-high 46 versus Nebraska Omaha Mar. 11. He finished the seasons ranked third in the WCHA in total saves trailing the league-leader, John Falkner (931) of UNO, by 56 saves despite playing in eight fewer games

Hunting for 100

Alternate Captain Brad Hunt is quickly approaching the 100-point plateau. During his three seasons in the green and white, he has accumulated 19-70--89 points and has already climbed to 10th on BSU’s all-time defensemen scoring list. With one point this weekend, he will match Greg Ambrose (1995-99) for ninth with 90 career points. In the history of the BSU hockey program, only five blueliners have topped the 100-point mark with the last being Jude Boulianne Jr. in 1994-95.

Back in the saddle

BSU captain Ben Kinne is back in action this season after missing the entire 2010-11 season after suffering a stroke in the offseason. He has been practicing, is in good health and has been cleared to play. In his first two seasons at BSU he piled up 18-21=39 points and played a significant role on BSU’s power-play and penalty-kill units.

Players May Come...

Bemidji State welcomes a group of nine new players into the fold - eight freshmen and one transfer with six playing forward, two looking for a home on the blue line along with a goalie. Freshmen forwards Sean Rudy, Cody Strang, Danny Mattson, Tyler Tosunian and Mitch Cain are looking to earn their way into the BSU lineup, while the sixth forward in the mix is sophomore transfer David Boehm. He is in his second season with the Beavers after sitting out and practicing with the team in 2010-11 after transferring from UMass. Sam Windle and Matt Prapavessis are the team’s new defensemen. While they possess very different games, both bring great length to the Beavers’ line up as both stand over 6-1, which Windle measuring in at 6-4. Prapavessis is an offensive defender and will see time on the Beavers’ power-play, while Windle is a hard-nosed defender. The final addition is Andrew Walsh. The goaltender comes into the 201112 campaign from Dawson Creek, British Columbia, where he also played junior hockey in the NAHL.

...and Players May Go

The conclusion of the 2010-11 campaign, meant the end of the collegiate careers of BSU’s six seniors. The 2011 seniors make up a class that has been a part of three College Hockey America regular-season championships, a CHA Tournament title, BSU’s first at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament a trip to the 2009 Frozen four and the transition into a new building-Sanford Center--and the WCHA. BSU’s 2011 senior class includes: Ryan Adams, Emil Billberg, Ryan Cramer, Dan MacIntyre, Matt Read and Ian Lowe. Read, now with the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, left his mark on the program more than any of his departing teammates.. Read left BSU as its Division I-era leading scorer (143) and tops the list in goals scoring (65) assist scoring (78) games played (148) and ranks 18th on BSU’s all-time scoring list.

Bakala in the crease

BSU goaltender Dan Bakala enters his senior season atop the BSU all-time save percentage list. In 3,700 minutes between the pipes for the Beavers, he made 1,661 saves at a clip of .918. In addition, his total of six shutouts is tied for fourth all-time at BSU and he is third in goals-against average at 2.40. He finished 201011 making an appearance in 31 of the Beavers’ 38 games. He was 14-13-4 with a 2.47 GAA and a .919 save percentage.

MacQueen vs. the Tigers

Senior forward Jamie MacQueen is certainly excited to face CC this weekend. In two career games versus the Tigers, He has two goals with one of the standing as a game-winner.

Academic Excellence As Bemidji State has made inroads in its development as a Division I program, its progress in the classroom has been remarkable. In its 11th year under head coach Tom Serratore, the BSU program has become an academic juggernaut, annually dominating the academic honor roll while members of College Hockey America and have now carried that tradition on to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. In addition, BSU has had 14 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic AllDistrict V selections over the last eight years and has passed the NCAA’s first five Academic Progress Rate performance checks with flying colors. Overall, the BSU men’s ice hockey team carries a cumulative GPA of over 3.5. NCAA Academic Progress Rate Bemidji State men’s hockey received a score of 970 in the May 2009 release of the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) score. BSU helped the sport of men’s ice hockey achieve an aggregate score of 970, the third-highest of any men’s sport in the Division. The NCAA has established an APR cut rate of 925, which equates to a graduation rate of approximately 50 percent, for all NCAA Division I sports. Programs which fail to meet the cut rate when 2006-07 numbers are added to the 200506 and 2004-03 data risk reductions in scholarships. NCAA APR ‘05 ‘06 ‘07 ‘08 Bemidji St. 990 980 973 973

CHA Student-Athlete of the Year Kyle Hardwick was named 2010 CHA StudentAthlete of the year at the league’s 2010 awards banquet. The honor is the second to be garnered by a member of the BSU hockey team since the leagues inception. Andrew Murray became the first player in CHA history to be named Player of the Year and Student-Athlete of the Year, picking up the historic sweep at the 2005 CHA awards banquet. Murray, a unanimous First-Team AllCHA pick, became the first BSU skater to be named CHA Student-Athlete of the Year. Academic All-District V Over the last eight years, 14 Beavers have been honored on the CoSIDA Academic All-District V At-Large Team. In 2005, Peter Jonsson became just the second BSU men’s hockey player to be named Academic All-America. He was the only men’s hockey player in the nation to earn FirstTeam laurels in 2005. He was a two-time Academic All-District V selection, so honored in 2004 and 2005. BSU’s other Academic All-District picks include Riley Weselowski (2006-07-08), Andrew Murray (2005), Bryce Methven (2003-04), Bill Methven (2003) Travis Winter (2008-09), Cody Bostock (2009), Kyle Hardwick (2009-10) and Ryan Adams (2010-11).

Beaver Hockey 2011-12 Game Notes


Bemidji State Hockey y Bemidji State Head Coach Tom Serratore Bemidji State ‘87 / 11th season at BSU u Five-Time CHA Coach of the Year (2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010) u Five-Time Spencer Penrose Award Finalist (2002, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010)

Bemidji State University

C

onventional sports wisdom has long contended it is never wise to follow a legend. However, sporting a remarkable laundry-list of achievements after nearly nine years as head coach at Bemidji State, it appears Tom Serratore is more than comfortable in the role. The legacy Serratore was asked to continue upon accepting the role as Bemidji State’s seventh head coach in 2001 is one of the finest in all of collegiate athletics. Serratore walks by the trophy case on his way to practice each day, in full view of the 13 small-college national championship trophies enshrined therein, trophies won by future hockey Hall of Fame member R.H. “Bob” Peters. Serratore not only had the challenge of inheriting one of the true dynasties in the history of collegiate athletics, he also was called to oversee its growth into a Division I program. While Serratore will be the first to admit he’ll not be able to replicate Peters’ achievements, there can be little doubt the program is in the right hands. BSU finished 4-26-4 in 2000-01, the year before Serratore took control of the program. He led BSU to a 12-18-5 record during his rookie campaign and increased BSU’s win total each of the four years that followed. BSU finished Serratore’s Milestone Wins a 10/12/01 vs Minnesota St. 23-13-1 in 2004-05, giving the Beavers a school-record for wins in a Division 1 25 3/14/03 vs Findlay I season and back-to-back 20-win campaigns for the first time as a Division I b 2/27/04 at Air Force program. In 2008-09 Serratore led the Beavers through the regular season to 43 11/19/04 at Niagara post their fourth CHA championship in six years before their third CHA Tourna- 50 75 11/11/05 at Wayne St. (Mich.) ment championship, the program’s first NCAA Division I Tournament victory 100 1/5/07 vs Wayne St. (Mich.) and a chance represent the university and the CHA in the Frozen Four for the 125 11/29/08 vs. Michigan Tech first time. The 2009-10 campaign served as the Beaver’s last as a member of 150 11/21/09 vs. Ala.-Huntsville College Hockey America and Serratore’s BSU squad went out with a bang. The 175 2/19/11 vs. Colorado College team posted a 23-10-4 overall record with a 14-3-1 mark in CHA play en route a- coaching debut to the team’s third consecutive league regular-season championship and fifth in nine seasons as members of the league. Bemidji State capped the season by earning its first at-large bid and its fourth appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Under Serratore’s guidance, 28 BSU skaters earned All-CHA honors, including two-time First-Team AllCHA picks Marty Goulet (2002-03), Bryce Methven (2003-04), Matt Climie (2006-07), Travis Winter (2006-07, Cody Bostock (2007-08), Brad Hunt (2009-2010) and Matt Read (2009-2010) with four Beavers earning CHA Rookie of the Year laurels. BSU had multiple skaters named First-Team All-CHA seven of its final eight seasons in the league, including a school-record three first-teamers in 2003. Academic excellence has been a staple of the BSU program under Serratore and that trend has continued in the WCHA. The Beavers had a 21 skaters named to the 2010-11 WCHA All-Academic Team with 11 players earning WCHA Scholar Athlete laurels--both numbers were far and away the highest among league member institutions. Under Serratore’s guidance have a league-high 153 student-athletes have been named to conference all-academic teams over the last 10 years. In addition, BSU has had nine CoSIDA Academic All-District V selections during his reign, including 2005 First-Team Academic All-America selection Peter Jonsson. Serratore’s achievements have not gone unnoticed. He is a five-time CHA Coach of the Year, winning the honor in 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in 10 years as a collegiate head coach he has been named a finalist for the Spencer Penrose Award, given annually to the American Hockey Coaches Association’s National Coach of the Year, five times, including a runner-up finish in 2009. Serratore took the reigns as the seventh head coach at Bemidji State in 2001 after having spent the previous three seasons as the associate head coach for Peters. Prior to coming to BSU, Serratore spent five years as recruiting coordinator for the WCHA’s St. Cloud State Huskies, where he recruited several NHL draft picks.

OXFORD, Ohio (Steve Cady Arena) -- Junior forward Aaron McLeod scored twice and the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team got two goals in the final 6:10 of play to defeat No. 1 Miami University 5-3 at Steve Cady Arena in Oxford, Ohio. After a shaky first period, BSU seemed to get better as the game rolled on. The tentative Beavers got whistled for a penalty early and the RedHawks capitalized, taking a 1-0 lead on a goal just 2:10 into the game. The powerplay marker came off the backhand of Curtis McKenzie. BSU regrouped after allowing the early goal and despite trailing 1-0, held a 7-4 edge in shots on goal. Bemidji State shook the butterflies before the second period and knotted the score just 1:44 in. McLeod finished an end-to-end rush putting the puck over the shoulder of Cody Reichard for BSU’s first goal of the 2011-12 season. Sophomore Jeff Jubinville earned and assist on the play after carrying the puck into the neutral zone, fighting through a hook and put the puck on the stick of McLeod between the circles. The momentum would quickly switch ends as it took the top-ranked RedHawks just 1:32 to regain the lead (3:16). Chris Wideman funneled the puck to the net and Blake Coleman deflected it past BSU goaltender Dan Bakala and into the back of the cage. Entering the final frame trailing by a goal, the Beavers netted four goals to solidify the win. Just over five minutes in (5:08), Jake Areshenko potted his second collegiate goal unleashing a shot form the point that glanced of the left post and off the skate of MU goaltender Reichard before sliding beyond the goal line. McLeod picked up his second point of the night as he and senior defender Brad Hunt earned assisted on the scoring play. McLeod would give the Beavers their first lead of the game, 3-2, when he netted and unassisted goal at the 8:30 mark of the period, but BSU would not make it easy on itself. Drew Fisher was whistled for a penalty with 6:10 left in the game. It took 1:40, but MU connected on its second power-play of the night when Alex Wideman tucked a rebound past Bakala. Bemidji State would gain momentum and the lead less than three minutes later (18:05). Darcy Findlay intercepted a pass out of the corner and buried a backhand to put the Beavers up 4-3. BSU was called for its sixth penalty of the game immediately following the goal setting the RedHawks up on the man advantage for the final 1:50 of regulation. MU would later pull its goaltender, but David Boehm came up with the puck, found Sam Rendle and the Grand Rapids, Minn. native secured the 5-3 win with an empty-net goal. Bakala made 17 saves in the game, collecting his first win of the season (1-00). In the loss, Reichard (0-1-0) turned away 19 BSU shots and allowed four goals. Tonight’s game was a momentous occasion for three BSU players. Boehm, Matt Prapavessis and Tyler Tosunian each made their debuts for the Beavers. BSU has now won 41 of 56 season-openers all time and is 2-3-0 versus Miami, with both wins coming over the RedHawks when they carried the nations No. 1 ranking.

OXFORD, Ohio (Steve Cady Arena) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team went toe-to-toe with the nation’s top-ranked team, Miami University, for 55 minutes Saturday, but a short-handed goal by Matt Tomassoni in the game’s final minutes proved too much as the RedHawks earned a 3-2 victory to split in the season-opening, nonconference series in Oxford, Ohio. Bemidji State alternate captain Brad Hunt collected a pair of assists, his second and third of 2011-12, in the game to lead the Beavers and BSU converted its first power-play goal in six chances this season, but it was special teams situations that ultimately cost BSU the game. The Beavers put the RedHawks on a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity late in the second frame to allow MU to tied the score 2-2 and a power-play miscue led to the short-handed, go-ahead goal with just under five minutes to go in the third. For the second consecutive night, Miami was the first to light the scoreboard. Tomassoni took a pass from Austin Czarnik and beat BSU goaltender Dan Bakala at the 8:06 mark of the first period to put MU up 1-0. Trailing 1-0 to open the second period, Shea Walters collected a loose puck on the doorstep and buried his first goal of the season. Hunt got the play started with a shot form the blueline. Orban picked up the shot off the boards and left it in front for Walters and the Beavers converted their first power-play chance of the season. Just over six minutes later (10:20) the Beavers took the lead, 2-1, when Jordan George put a rebound past the Miami goaltender Connor Knapp for his first tally of 2011. Captain Ben Kinne and Hunt were credited with assists on the play. Following the goal BSU’s Radoslav Illo and Jake Areshenko were called for slashing penalties separated by just 14 seconds to gave the RedHawks a 1:46 5-on-3 opportunity. Miami took full advantage of the chance scoring the equalizing goal just 63 seconds later on a Chris Wideman slapshot from the blueline. With 5:26 to play and the score knotted at 2-2, the Beavers got the break it needed when Steven Spinell was whistled for slashing. The penalty supplied the Beavers with their fourth power-play opportunity of the evening. But it was the RedHawks that would use the opportunity to snatched the lead. When Matt Prapavessis fell trying to keep the puck in the zone, MU’s Trent Vogelhuber picked up the puck and led the short-handed rush with a shot. Bakala made the initial save, but Tomassoni was there to put the rebound past the BSU goaltender and give the nation’s top-ranked team the lead for good. As time wound down, the Beavers pulled Bakala for an extra attacker, but were unable to score to force overtime. Bakala finished with 23 saves in 58:57 of action. He allowed three goals as his record evens at 1-1-0 on the season. Each teamed completed the night 1-for-4 on the man advantage, with MU’s short-handed marker standing as the decisive goal. BSU his now 2-4-0 versus Miami all-time.
