wildcat HOCKEY

FORWARDS New Hampshire loses three of its top four scoring forwards from 2009 – two to graduation as well as Jenn Wakefield to the Canadian National team – but a talented core returns. Kelly Paton, a senior captain, ranked second on the team last year in goals (21), power-play goals (eight), assists (26) and points (47); she also had the highest shooting percentage (.202) and ranked third in plus/minus (+21). Paton garnered Hockey East Second Team All-Start recognition as she ranked third in the league in points, assists and power-play points as well as fourth in goals and fifth in powerplay goals. In the national statistics, Paton ranked 14th in power-play goals, 22nd in points-per game and 24th in both goals-per-game and assists-pergame. The speedy and elusive Paton is UNH’s active career leader in goals (43), assists (68) and points (111). Micaela Long is one of two

Wildcats (the graduated Sam Faber is the other) who recorded double digits in both goals and assists each of the past three years. In ‘09, Long tied with Faber for third on the team in goals with a personal best of 13, and she also tallied 13 assists for a total of 26 points; furthermore, she ranked third in shooting percentage and power-play goals as well as fourth in plus/minus. Long was selected to the 2009 Hockey East All-Tournament Team following a performance in which she scored a goal in both the semifinal and championship games, including the game-winning tally in the title game. Shannon Sisk saw increased playing time last year as a junior. She played in all 35 games and tallied four points with two goals and two assists. Kelly Cahill is a senior in her second year as a UNH Wildcat. She skated most of last season as a defenseman, but made the switch to forward for the last 13 games of the season. Cahill tallied two goals and four assists in those 13 games (4-8-12 in 33 games overall). Julie Allen, a junior, tallied four goals and seven assists for 11 points in her first year as a Wildcat in the 2009 season. Sarah Cuthbert was a defenseman prior to her arrival in Durham, but she made the switch at the outset of the ‘09 season. Cuthbert skated in 34 of 35 games and contributed three points with two goals and one assist. Brittany Skudder was sidelined last year due to a pre-season injury. She was a highly-touted recruit and

New Hampshire has won six consecutive Hockey East regular-season titles (including co-champs in ‘05) and has also won four straight Hockey East Championship tournaments. The Wildcats have been host of an NCAA quarterfinal game each of the last four years, which is the longest active streak. UNH advanced to the Frozen Four in ‘06 and ‘08.

Season Outlook

Led by eighth-year head coach Brian McCloskey, the University of New Hampshire women’s ice hockey program returns 12 players from last year’s team that advanced to the NCAA tournament for the fourth consecutive year and finished with a 24-6-5 overall record. And the Wildcats welcome 10 newcomers, including two transfer student-athletes, as they take aim at a seventh consecutive Hockey East regular-season crown and fifth straight league tourney title in 2010.

is expected to make an immediate impact in her first year on the ice. Six new forwards, including transfer students Emma Clark (St. Lawrence) and Molly Morrison (Vermont), are welcomed into the program this season. Clark, a sophomore, skated in 32 games a year ago for SLU and tallied three points, all on goals. Prior to that, she was Culver Academy’s leading scorer three consecutive years. Morrison was a two-year letterwinner at UVM, where she compiled 13 goals (10 power-play goals) and 14 assists for 27 points in 68 games. That duo will be joined by freshmen Paige Goloubef, Kristine Horn, Katie Kleinendorst and Kristina Lavoie. DEFENSEMEN UNH’s defensive unit is headed by the junior triumvirate of Courtney Birchard, Raylen Dziengelewski and Courtney Sheary. Sheary returned from a redshirt year in ‘08 to bolster the defensive unit last season. In addition to provid-

Season Outlook

wildcat HOCKEY ing solid play in the defensive zone, Sheary contributed six points with one goal and five assists as she skated in all 35 games. Dziengelewski is another defensive defenseman. She also skated in all 35 games and tallied two goals and seven assists for nine points. Birchard, in a short period of time (16 games), has proven to be a valuable asset on the blue line with her ability to break the puck out of the defensive zone either by carrying the puck or with a pass; she also added 10 points (5g, 5a). In 35 games, she compiled 23 points (9g, 14a). Four freshmen – Sarah Adams, Katie Brock, Kailey Chappell and Bryanna Farris – will figure into the mix on the blue line. GOALTENDERS New Hampshire has two proven players between the pipes and can rely on both any given day. Kayley Herman followed her record-setting rookie year with a solid sophomore campaign in ‘09. In 25 games, Herman went 14-6-5 with a 2.29 GAA, .900 save percentage and two shutouts. She had a 7-2-4 record with a 1.93 GAA and .908 save percentage in 13 Hockey East league games. Herman excelled at home, where she compiled a 10-1-3 record with a 1.48 GAA and .933 save percentage. And during UNH’s 15-game winning streak, she registered six wins with a 1.50 GAA and .936 save percentage. In two years, Herman is 43-9-6 with a 1.58 GAA, .920 save percentage and 11 shutouts. Lindsey Minton went a perfect 10-0-0 last year as a freshman with a 1.72 GAA, .916 save percentage and one shutout. She played in 12 games overall and had 10 starts, including one in the Hockey East championship



game. Minton stopped 20 of 21 shots she faced, including all 11 in the second period, in that title game vs. Boston College. In nine league games, Minton was 8-0-0 with a 1.56 GAA and .917 save percentage. She had a 1.23 GAA, .939 save percentage and four wins at the Whittemore Center. Minton also proved herself against the nation’s elite with a 4-0-0 record, 1.96 GAA and .919 save percentage; that included back-to-back road wins against Harvard and UConn. SCHEDULE New Hampshire has a storied history as the winningest women’s ice hockey program, and the Wildcats will once again make history January 8, 2010, when they play the first outdoor women’s ice hockey game against Northeastern University at Fenway Park, home of MLB’s Boston Red Sox. UNH takes the ice for the first time in the 2009-10 season September 26 in an exhibition game against the Durham Lightning. The ‘Cats officially open the

campaign with six consecutive home games. The first to come to town is league rival UConn on Oct. 3, and another school from the Nutmeg State – Quinnipiac University – faces off against the Wildcats the next day. It will be the first meeting between the programs since the 2002-03 season, when both were members of the ECAC Eastern League. UNH then battles five schools from the Empire State. Colgate, a team that upended the ‘Cats in Hamilton (N.Y.) a year ago, travels to town for an October 9 matchup. Syracuse University, in its second year as a varsity program (with familiar face Paul Flanagan, formerly of St. Lawrence, behind the bench), is the next day’s opponent. Niagara University, with firstyear head coach Chris MacKenzie, comes to the Whittemore Center for a two-game series vs. the ‘Cats on Oct. 17-18. New Hampshire hits the road for the first time with a trip to northern New York to battle Clarkson and St. Lawrence. UNH concludes October with its second Hockey East game of the

versity and plays host to Rensselaer for the first ever meeting vs. the Engineers. The Whittemore Center will be the site of a stop on Team USA’s Qwest Tour, as the national team skates against a Hockey East All-Star Team on November 22. The Wildcats face league foes Northeastern, Providence and Boston College before concluding the fall semester – and the non-conference portion of the schedule – Dec. 12 at

Season Outlook

season – once again vs. UConn at home. One day later, the calendar turns to November and features a home game against Maine. Next on the docket is a home-andhome series vs. Boston University, a team the Wildcats did not defeat last year (0-1-2 with two shootout losses), and the “Battle of the ‘Cats” at Vermont. UNH then makes a midweek trip to play regional rival Harvard Uni-

intrastate rival Dartmouth College. New Hampshire rings in the new year with the landmark game at Fenway Park on January 8 and then turns its focus to a home-and-home series against longtime nemesis PC. The ‘Cats conclude the month by completing their season series against both Northeastern and Maine. February opens with a home game against Boston U. and a trip to UConn, and continues with a two-game set against UVM. Senior Day will be held February 20 against Boston College and the regular season ends the next day with a road game vs. those Eagles. The 2010 postseason schedule opens February 28 with Hockey East first round games. The league tournament concludes March 6-7 with the semifinal and final games at the site of the highest seed; the league implemented that format last season and UNH was the host as the regular season champion. The NCAA tournament begins the following weekend with four quarterfinal games on campus sites – UNH has been a host each of the last four years – and the Frozen Four is March 19-21.

Director of Strength and Conditioning

Paul Chapman enters his eighth year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure at UNH, Chapman helped coordinate the building of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center and his efforts have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both women’s and men’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Chapman had been the director of strength and conditioning for the University of North Dakota from 1992-2001 and served there on an interim basis during the 1991-92 season. During his stint with the Fighting Sioux, he worked with head coaches to tailor sports specific strength and conditioning programs for 18 intercollegiate sports. He also oversaw and administered four weight training facilities and supervised a staff on 10 assistants. His efforts were an integral part of a winning tradition at UND, as the football team was the Division II national champions in 2001, the men’s ice hockey team won a Division I national title in 2000 and 1997 and the women’s basketball team was the Division II national champion in 1997, 1998 and 1999. Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength an Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. Chapman is a 1990 graduate of Dickinson State University in North Dakota with a B.S. degree in Biology. He then went on to earn at M.S. in Exercise Science from North Dakota in 1994. An outstanding college athlete, Chapman was inducted into the Dickinson State Athletic Hall of Fame for his efforts on the football field. He was a two-time All-America First Team selection as well as an All-America Second Team honoree in his four-year playing career. Upon graduation, he was a fourth-round draft choice of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Canadian Football League. Chapman, 43, and his wife Kimberly have two children, Tyler and Brittani.

Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning

John Ciani is entering his eighth year directing the strength and conditioning program for the UNH women’s ice hockey program. After four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Ciani’s efforts have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both men’s and women’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Coach Ciani is very passionate about his commitment to strength and conditioning. He has taken his wide range of experiences to come up with very distinct hockey-specific training philosophies. In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on how much weight is on the bar or how high an athlete can jump, but rather the health of the player and her performance on the ice. The women’s ice hockey strength and conditioning program created by Ciani utilizes all facets of training, from basic strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and hockey-specific conditioning that enhances the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the student-athlete. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota. During his tenure at UND, Ciani worked primarily with the 2001 Division II national championship football team, women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams. In 2000, John began his career in strength and conditioning at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team level volleyball players, including Misty May. Ciani received a B.A. degree in Psychology from Long Beach State and worked on his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science at the University of North Dakota.

Strength & Conditioning

The two basic goals of the Strength and Conditioning department are injury prevention and performance enhancement for the 20 varsity sports sponsored by the University of new Hampshire. The first goal, injury prevention, revolves around reducing the likelihood of the student-athlete getting injured during games or practice by training the student-athlete as a unit and pinpointing weaknesses in the player that need to be strengthened. The second goal, performance enhancement, centers on making the student-athlete a better student-athlete. This is done by educating student-athletes on a wide range of training from Olympic-style weightlifting to teaching the student-athlete how to move more efficiently while running or during an agility drill. The Strength and Conditioning program plays a vital role in the success of UNH hockey. The student-athletes train year-round to perform at their highest level throughout the season. The UNH women’s ice hockey strength and conditioning program is a comprehensive training program that involves Olympic-style weightlifting, traditional strength training, plyometrics, agility/quickness training and sport-specific conditioning.

2009-10 UNH WOMEN’S HOCKEY


wildcat HOCKEY its five member schools that initially had varsity programs for women: Boston College, Maine, New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence. The uncertainty remained until a split in the Eastern College Athletic Conference grouped the five aforementioned programs into a separate league, the ECAC Women’s Eastern League, along with three other unaffiliated programs. Seeking league solidarity, administrators from the five Hockey East institutions acted. In September of 2001, the long-incubated idea became a reality when the athletic directors voted to found the new women’s league under the existing Hockey East banner, with play scheduled to begin no later than the 2004-05 season. The five schools with varsity programs entered as charter members with the stipulation that any other Hockey East school that added a varsity women’s program in the future would be freely admitted to the league. Expediting the process in the interests of the participating teams, the league and the sport itself, Commissioner Joe Bertagna worked with a selected task force to successfully prepare the Hockey East women’s league for launch in the 2002-03 season, two years ahead of schedule. An important part of that process was the acceptance of an invitation extended to the University of Connecticut to join the newly formed league as its sixth active member. The triumphant effort immediately afforded the participating administrators a stronger voice in the advancement of their women’s ice hockey programs and alleviated the ECAC of continuing the maintenance of the Women’s Eastern League. Players, fans, coaches and administrators alike were all anticipating the intensified competition created by the new circle of teams that were already familiar rivals. In 2005, the Women’s Hockey East Association welcomed the addition of two more teams to its growing family, Boston University and the University of Vermont. For BU, it marked the inaugural season for women’s hockey as a varsity sport. Although the Women’s Hockey East Association is still in its infancy, its member programs have storied histories that include several championships and individual awards at the highest levels of play. The first 14 ECAC championships were shared among New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence, all charter members of Hockey East. Northeastern forward Brooke Whitney was named the recipient of the 2002 Patty Kazmaier Award as the nation’s top female collegiate player, an honor first won by New Hampshire’s Brandy Fisher in 1998. Had the award been in existence beforehand, it surely would have been won at some point by Cammi Granato, a three-time ECAC Player of the Year who led Providence to back-to-back championships in 1992 and 1993. Five years later, in 1998, alongside nine other alums of what are now Hockey East programs, Granato captained Team USA to the Olympic gold medal during

the first Olympic tournament that featured women’s ice hockey as a medal sport. Granato will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in October for her contributions to the sport. Beginning in 2009, the WHEA athletic directors voted to honor the league Player of the Year with the Cammi Granato Award. Perhaps the proudest legacy that the Women’s Hockey East Association has established is the Hockey Humanitarian Award. The most prestigious off-ice honor, and arguably the highest overall honor in the sport, the Hockey Humanitarian Award recognizes college hockey’s finest citizen each year and encompasses both male and female athletes in all divisions. Its winners have demonstrated outstanding contributions to society through leadership in charity work and volunteerism. Northeastern senior forward Missy Elumba was the 2009 recipient, as the fifth Hockey East student-athlete to receive the prestigious honor. Elumba was the 14th all-time recipient and joined former Husky goaltender Chanda Gunn, who received the award in 2004, as the second athlete in Northeastern women’s hockey history. BC’s Sarah Carlson received it in 2005, making Women’s Hockey East the first league to boast back-to-back winners.

Hockey East

The Women’s Hockey East Association proudly enters its eighth season of play after officially commencing league action in the fall of 2002. In seven short years, the conference has emerged as one of the top women’s ice hockey conferences in the nation, having sent three teams to the Frozen Four and seven teams to the NCAA Tournament in the league’s seven-year existence, including most recently New Hampshire’s Frozen Four appearance in 2008. In 2009, the New Hampshire Wildcats took home both their fourth straight regularseason and tournament championships. The University of New Hampshire hosted the seventh annual tournament championship at the Whittemore Center in Durham and Wildcats’ head coach Brian McCloskey was named Hockey East Coach of the Year. Boston College’s Kelli Stack earned Player of the Year honors for the second time in her career, while Providence netminder Genevieve Lacasse was also honored as the Hockey East Rookie of the Year. Northeastern defenseman Kate Applin and Boston University blueliner Jennifer Arms both earned 4.0 GPA’s on the year to earn Hockey East Top-Scholar Athlete honors for the first time in their Hockey East careers, headlining the list of a league-record 90 student-athletes named to the WHEA AllAcademic Team. In February 2007, the league debuted its inaugural “Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer.” The one-day event was hosted by Hockey East schools as a way to establish a greater fan base, to raise needed funds, and to work with the specific charities to raise awareness for both the league and the specific cause. In the initial year, close to $20,000 was donated to local breast cancer charities (Friends of Mel’s Foundation and the American Cancer Society), vastly exceeding expectations. Last year, over $38,000 was raised in the third year of the program to bring the three-year total to over $90,000. “Skating Strides” has won two national awards at NACMA in the “Single Day Attendance Promotion” category in 2007 and 2009. The fourth annual “Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer” will have an event on every WHEA campus this season, as well as participation by all of the Hockey East men’s teams. Fenway Park will also play host for the Hockey East doubleheader on Friday, January 8, 2010, as Northeastern and New Hampshire will face off in the first outdoor women’s game in history. History As women’s ice hockey steadily expanded from its original status as an emerging sport to its current status as an established NCAA championship sport, it became apparent that Hockey East should seriously consider sponsoring a separate league to accommodate
