Union coach Bennett shakes up forward lines
Union coach Rick Bennett has shifted some forwards around as the 17th-ranked Dutchmen try to salvage the weekend as it faces 20th-ranked Colgate tonight at 7 at Messa Rink.
Forward Daniel Carr has been moved from the second line right wing to the left wing on the first line with center Kyle Bodie and right wing Wayne Simpson. Daniel Ciampini, who was on the left winger on the top line, has been dropped to the fourth line. He will play right wing.
Nick Cruice replaces Sam Coatta on the right wing on the line with center David Roy and left winger Cole Ikkala.
On defense, Ryan Forgaard takes the place of Charlie Vasaturo.
Here is the Union lineup, starting with the forwards (LW-C-RW):
Daniel Carr/Kyle Bodie/Wayne Simpson
Matt Hatch/Josh Jooris/Kevin Sullivan
Cole Ikkala/David Roy/Nick Cruice
Matt Wilkins/Max Novak/Daniel Ciampini
The defensive pairings are:
Ryan Forgaard/Tim Boyle
Greg Coburn/Shayne Gostisbehere
Mat Bodie/Sebastien Gingras
Troy Grosenick starts in goal.
I'll have more later in my pregame report.
