Thursday, April 10, 2014
Union defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and Boston College forward Johnny Gaudreau will face each other as opponents this afternoon when their teams meet in the NCAA Frozen Four at 5:06 p.m at the Wells Fargo Center.

Union Hockey: Bennett's reaction after Colgate loss a turning point

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

An angry Union hocwey coach Rick Bennett marched into the media room for the postgame press conference after the Dutchmen blew a pair of leads to Colgate, 5-3, on Nov. 8, dropping the Dutchmen’s record to 3-3-2. As he walked to the table to begin the press conference, he saw a score sheet that been placed in the middle of the table. Bennett didn’t even bother to look at it. He picked it up and tossed it aside to his left. Then, Bennett began to criticize his team’s play, and called out two players in particular, defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who took a bad penalty, and forward Kevin Sullivan, who was out with an upper-body injury.
