RPI has full compliment of skaters for tonight's game against Mercyhurst
RPI will have a full compliment of skaters for tonight's non-conference men's college hockey game against Mercyhurst at 7 at Houston Field House.
Engineers coach Seth Appert is dressing the maximum of 18 skaters. In last Saturday's 4-0 loss at Harvard, only 16 skaters dressed for the game as Appert tried to send a message to his players that he wasn't happy with their effort.
As expected, team leading scorer Jacob Laliberte returns to the lineup after missing last weekend's games with concussion-like symptoms.
Forwards Zack Schroeder and Johnny Rogic are out with injuries.
Here is the RPI lineup, starting with the forwards (LW-C-RW):
Matt Neal/Jacob Laliberte/Ryan Haggety
Brock Higgs/Mark Miller/CJ Lee
Mike Zalewski/Mark McGowan/Milos Bubela
Travis Fulton/Marty O'Grady/Greg Burgdoerfer
The defensive pairings are:
Curtis Leonard/Nick Bailen
Guy Leboeuf/Craig Bokenfohr
Luke Curadi/Phil Hampton
Bryce Merriam starts in goal.
