Had a chance to watch Pettersen live against ASU. Nice hands and vision, but doesn’t move the puck with the authority required at the NHL level. Also is not a great skater. Was really surprised by this as his highlight packages always seemed to make him out to be a good skater, but he looked slow even compared to the other college players. Still a big work in progress.

It's been a few weeks since I've done a weekend round-up. Today, all the teams played early games, so their weekends are over already.

Here's the catch-up since November 17...

ASU
The Sun Devils had a couple weeks off after their trip to Alaska and returned to action last week.

Last week, they hosted Vermont, winning 2-1 on Friday and skating to a 2-2 tie on Saturday.

This week, they hosted Denver, with tonight's game being played at the Gila River Arena rather than their usual home arena that holds less than 1000 spectators. The Sun Devils won Friday's game 4-1 (their first ever win against a top-5 ranked program), and Saturday's game was a 2-2 tie.

https://twitter.com/user/status/1203172846630924289

Koumontzis did not get any points in the last two weeks worth of games.

DENVER
After their blistering 8-0 start, the Pioneers have hit a skid over their last 8 games. They are 1-4-3 in the last month.

Two weeks ago, they hosted Western Michigan. They lost the first game 2-1 and won the second 6-1. Pettersen had 2 assists in the victory.

Last week, they were off for Thanksgiving. As mentioned above, this weekend, they made the trip to Arizona to face the Sun Devils. Friday's game was a 4-1 loss. Saturday's was a 2-2 tie. Denver tied the game with 41 seconds left. Pettersen had the lone assist on the tying goal.

Pettersen now has 13 points in 16 games (2G/11A) and leads the Pioneers in points and assists.

MSU
The Spartans have played 6 games since I last updated this thread. They have put up a decent 3-2-1 record in those games. All against top-20 ranked programs.

Two weeks ago, MSU hosted Notre Dame and played to a 1-1 tie and a 3-2 win in the series. Nodler had 1 assist in the game they won.

Last week, MSU visited Ohio State, losing both games. The final scores were 3-1 and 2-0. Nodler had no points.

This week, the Spartans hosted Wisconsin and swept the series with a 3-0 victory on Friday and a 5-4 OT win on Saturday. Nodler was again kept off the score sheet.

Mitch Mattson did not play in any of the above games. He only has 4 games played on the season and hasn't played in a game since November 9.
----------

Last week was the first time since the season began that ASU has appeared in the top 20 of the USCHO.com college rankings. Their win and tie this weekend over one of the top programs should see them move up a bit. Conversely, Denver could drop some more. They were ranked 4th last week.

MSU squeaked into the top 20 two weeks ago, but dropped out last week. Their two wins over Wisconsin should see them back in the rankings this week.

----------

Next week, there will again only be two series to pay attention to as the Sun Devils will be travelling to East Lansing to face the Spartans. Denver has a home-and-home series against their cross-state rivals of Colorado College.

Remember that next Friday's game will be broadcast across Canada on TSN2 at 7:00pm MT.

Did you happen to notice Koumontzis at all for ASU?

No. The only guys that stood out for ASU were Walker and DeBrouwer.

Again, it's been a while since I've updated the thread. With the holidays, I haven't missed much...

MSU
MSU has only played one series since I last updated. It was the weekend of December 13th, when ASU visited East Lansing. ASU won the first game 4-3 and MSU won the second games 1-0 in OT. None of the Flames prospects had any points in either game. Mattson did get to play in both games that weekend, which is the first time he has played both games in a two-game series since the end of January, last season.

The Spartans return to action tomorrow afternoon, when they face Michigan Tech in the first game of the Great Lakes Invitational tournament at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. They will also play on Tuesday against either Michigan or Ferris State, depending on who wins tomorrow's games (winner of Game 1 plays the winner of Game 2 and the losers of the first two games play each other too).

DENVER
Denver has also had a quiet couple of weeks over the holidays.

Their last games were the weekend of December 13th, when the played a home-and-home series against Colorado College. The Pioneers won both games, 3-0 and 3-1. Pettersen had 1G/1A in the 3-0 victory and 1A in the 3-1 game.

In 18 games played, Pettersen has 3G/13A for 16 total points. He leads Denver in both assists and points at the Christmas break.

The Pioneers return to action next weekend when UMass visits Denver.

ASU
The Sun Devils have been the most-active team in the NCAA over the holidays. They likely wish they would have taken the time off.

As mentioned above, they visited MSU two weekends ago and split the series with a 4-3 win and a 1-0 OT loss.

Last weekend, they took a trip to Nebraska-Omaha. Again, they split the series, winning 5-4 on Saturday and losing 8-4 on Sunday.

This weekend, they took a trip to Southern California to play Harvard at the Ducks' practice rink in Irvine, CA. They lost 4-1 on Saturday and tied today 4-4 (they lost in 3-on-3 OT -- but the NCAA doesn't count that, so it goes in the books as a tie).

Unfortunately, Koumontzis has been pretty quiet recently. He had no points in any of the six games mentioned above. He hasn't had a point since his 2 point game on November 9 in Alaska.

The Sun Devils are back in action on Saturday, for a weekend series against Michigan Tech.

It was revenge weekend for Denver, who hosted UMass, the team that defeated them in the Frozen Four last year.

Denver won both games, 4-2 on Friday and 4-3 on Saturday. Pettersen assisted on the GWG in both games. He also added a goal on Saturday. At the time, it tied the game at 2.

https://twitter.com/user/status/1213668098366033920


ASU also played on Saturday night, and also won 4-3 (over Michigan Tech). It was another night with no points for Koumontzis. The two teams play again tomorrow afternoon.


Earlier in the week, MSU participated in the Great Lakes Invitational tournament at Little Caesars Arena. They lost the first game 4-2 to Michigan Tech. Nodler had an assist in the game. The next day, they played Ferris State and won 5-2. Nodler didn't have any points in that game.

Mattson didn't play in either game.

For the first time in a long time, all the Flames prospects were in action this weekend.

----------

MSU played host to Minnesota, splitting the weekend series. The Spartans won 4-1 on Friday and lost 2-0 on Saturday. Mattson played in both games and has still yet to registered his first college point. Nodler also played in both games and was kept off the scoresheet again.

----------

ASU has been playing their games on Saturday-Sunday instead of Friday-Saturday over the last month. They did the same this week with a visit to Brown. They won 3-1 on Saturday. On Sunday, they trailed 3-0 halfway through the game. Then, they mounted a solid comeback to force OT. They won in OT for a 4-3 final. Koumontzis finally got a point, picking up an assist on the GWG. It was his first point since November 9.

----------

Denver continued its winning ways this weekend as they hosted St Cloud State. Friday was a 6-3 victory and they won on Saturday 5-3. Pettersen was held without a point in Friday's game, but scored both the GWG and EN insurance goal on Saturday. It was the first multi-goal game of his college career.

Pettersen now has 6 goals on the season, which is third-best on the team. He has 21 points in 22 games and leads the team in both assists and points.

----------


All three teams are back in action on Friday. ASU is home to play RIT; MSU is on the road in Wisconsin; and Denver is taking a trip to Nebraska-Omaha.

Koumontzis does all the hard work on the OTGWG.

Pronman released his midseason prospects rankings. Pettersen was the only Flames to make the list.

Quote:
60. Mathias Emilio Pettersen, LW, Calgary (Denver-NCHC)

April 3, 2000 | 5-foot-10 | 172 pounds

Drafted: 167th-overall (2018)
Previous ranking: No. 106

Skating: 60
Puck Skills: 60
Physical Game: 30
Hockey Sense: 65

Pettersen has been a driver for a top team in Denver this season. He’s a player full of skill and offensive IQ. He makes high-end plays consistently and has the mind to try things others don’t. The main reason the former sixth-round pick by Calgary has seen his stock rise is the addition of speed and pace to his game he didn’t have in junior. Pettersen hits the line with speed and can turn defenders around. He’s small and not an overly physical player, but with the puck and on the power play, he provides a lot of value.

In his 25th career college game, Mitchell Mattson got his first NCAA point on Friday night!

He had an assist on the GWG in MSU's 4-2 win over Penn State.

Here's the goal (with no evidence of Mattson's assist in the video -- but he puts up a decent screen). He's #27 in white...

The 4 weeks since the last check-in:
  • ASU has a 7-1-0 record in their last 8 games, with an overall record of 20-9-3. Things are looking good for the Sun Devils making it to the NCAA Tournament again this year.

    Unfortunately, Koumontzis has been injured recently and hasn't played in the last 3 weeks, missing 6 games so far. He is sitting on 3G/5A in 25 games played this season.

    __________


  • MSU was off last week, so they've only played 6 games in the last 4 weeks. They have been pretty consistent recently, splitting every weekend series they've played going back to mid-December. Not-surprisingly, their overall record is nearly even at 14-13-1. Consistency is good, but splitting every series isn't doing much for their tournament chances.

    Nodler has played in their last 6 games, but has no points in that time. Mattson not only got his first NCAA point on January 24, he has also been getting into the lineup on a regular basis. Nodler has 2G/4A in 27 games, and Mattson has 0G/1A in 13 games played this season.

    __________


  • Denver was off this weekend, giving them time to lick their wounds after losing both games last week to Minnesota-Duluth. The Pioneers have an impressive 17-6-5 overall record, but 3 of their losses (and one tie) have come at the hands of Minnesota-Duluth (who are the two-time defending national champions).

    Pettersen continues to roll on, with 2G/2A in his last 5 games. He has 8G/17A in 28 games this season, which leads the team in points and he is tied for first on the team in assists. He has been finding the back of the net more recently as well. 5 of his 8 goals this season have come since the start of 2020 (9 games).

    __________

The regular season is winding down in the NCAA. ASU only has 4 games left; MSU has 6; and Denver has 8.

All three teams are back in action next week. ASU is hosting Alaska-Anchorage; Denver is visiting North Dakota; and MSU is playing two against their rivals from Michigan, with Friday's game being in East Lansing and another game on Monday at Little Caesars in Detroit for Presidents Day.

More of the same from the three teams this weekend...
ASU continues to roll, winning another 2 games against Alaska-Anchorage. The Sun Devils are now on a 7 game winning streak, and have a 12-2-0 record since the start of 2020. Unfortunately, Koumontzis is still out of action, having missed 8 straight games now.

Next weekend is the end of ASU's regular season. They visit Wisconsin, which is not the powerhouse program it once was. After that, they'll have to wait it out to find out if they'll be invited to the NCAA Tournament (they're 11th in the ranking right now, so it looks like a safe bet), and where/who they will be playing.


__________


MSU lost on Friday, 5-1 to their rivals from Michigan. Later today, the two teams meet again at Little Caesars Arena to finish their season series at "The Duel in the D". Nodler and Mattson both played on Friday, but neither had a point. Mattson has now played in 9 straight games, which is the longest he has gone without being scratched in his two years of college hockey.


__________


Denver was on the road this weekend at North Dakota, to face the top-ranked team in the nation. Denver lost both games, 4-1 on Friday and 3-1 on Saturday. Pettersen had an assist on their lone goal in Friday's game. He continues to lead the team in both points and assists.

The Pioneers have had an excellent season this year -- except when they face North Dakota and Minnesota-Duluth. They have an overall 17-8-5 record, but they are 0-3-1 against both North Dakota and Minnesota-Duluth. Oddly enough, the only other team they have not defeated this season is ASU, who they lost to and tied in early December in Arizona.

If you remove those three teams from the equation, they're 17-1-2 against everyone else.

The good news is, Denver is solidly in a position to qualify for the NCAA Tournament, and they can likely get to the Frozen Four without playing UND or UMD. The bad news is that they'll almost-certainly have to play at least one of them to win either their Conference or the Frozen Four.

Denver still has 3 weeks left in its regular season. They play three of the bottom teams in the NCHC Conference.

Michigan defeated MSU 4-1 in Detroit tonight. No points for Nodler or Mattson in the loss.

Emilio with 2g 2a in a 7-0 win

https://twitter.com/user/status/1231427475793596417

Pettersen now with 31 points in 32 games which is good for 5th in the NCAA for U20s.

Only Newhook (Avs 2019 1st), Caufield (Habs 2019 1st), Drury (Canes 2018 2nd), Zegras (Ducks 2019 1st) have more points for U20.

Not a great weekend for ASU or MSU...

ASU went to Wisconsin and lost both games. Their season is now over, with a 22-11-3 final record. They currently sit 13th on the Pairwise rankings that determine the NCAA tournament invites -- which is right on the bubble depending on which teams win the various Conferences.

Koumontzis is still injured and hasn't played a game since mid-January. If the Sun Devils do get the invite, let's hope he'll be back from whatever is ailing him.

__________


MSU hosted Ohio State and lost both games (1-0 and 4-2). Nodler and Mattson played but had no points. The Spartans visit Notre Dame next week to close out their regular season.


__________


A great weekend for Denver and Emilio Pettersen...

The Pioneers hosted Miami this weekend and lit up the "It's in Ohio, not Florida" team for 7 goals each night. Pettersen had only 1 assist in Friday's 7-3 victory, but he made up for it with a 2G/2A effort in Saturday's 7-0 affair.

Here's his second goal of the game...
https://twitter.com/user/status/1231427475793596417

He now has 31 points in 32 games, which leads the team.


The Pioneers still have two more weeks left in their season. Next week, they're off to St. Cloud State.

This weekend...
  • ASU's season is done, so they're still waiting to see if they'll get the tournament invite (they actually moved up from 13th to 12th in the Pairwise without playing a game this weekend -- which helps their chances).

  • MSU finished their regular season with a win (Friday) and tie (Saturday) at Notre Dame. Nodler finally got back on the scoresheet in both games, with an assist on Friday and a goal on Saturday. These were his first points since December 30. Next week, MSU faces Michigan in the first round of the Big Ten tournament (best of 3). At this point, they'll need to win the Conference to make the NCAA Tournament.

  • Denver split their weekend series at St Cloud State this weekend, with a 5-1 loss on Friday and a 5-2 win on Saturday. Pettersen had one goal in each game. He now leads the team in points and is second in both goals and assists. Next week, Denver finishes its regular season schedule with a home-and-home series against Colorado College.

The Big-10 playoffs started on Friday. MSU faced Michigan in the first game of a best-of-three series. The Wolverines shut out the Spartans, 3-0 (obviously, no points for Nodler or Mattson). This means that MSU must win every game it plays from here out, or their season will be over. Game two goes Saturday.


Denver started its final series of the regular season with a 2-2 tie against Colorado College (Denver won the shootout for NCHC conference standings purposes, but it officially goes into the books as a tie). Pettersen had no points in the game.
