ECAC Hockey Faceoff Selections return Oct. 5

Four weeks from today, Union drops the puck on its 23rd NCAA Division I hockey season when it hosts Bowling Green at Messa Rink.

I figured this is a good time as any to let you know that the fifth year of The Daily Gazette ECAC Hockey Faceoff Selections will start Saturday, Oct. 5. That is the first day college hockey teams can "officially" practice, though they can conduct skill sessions prior to that date.

There are also games on Oct. 5. Clarkson opens at series at Niagara, and Colgate hosts Ferris State.

For those who haven't played before, I post my picks on Thursday night. Then the contestants email me their selections to schott@dailygazette.com. The deadline to submit picks is the time of the first game, usually 7 p.m.

Ryan Fay is the defending champion.

I'll post another reminder as we get closer to the start of the season.
