This is a new segment that I will be adding to the blog every week. I call it "College Hockey Video of the Week." I will be showing some great goals, hits, fights, etc. from college hockey that have been caught on film. Some of these videos will be Union Hockey videos, just like the one I am presenting this week.
This is a video of some of your favorite Union players working out in the awesome hockey training facility at Athletic Republic in Clifton Park. Here Dutchmen such as Luke Cain and Andrew Buote are training on the hockey treadmill, which might be one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I definitely need to get one for my house next season! I can't wait for the 2010-2011 season to begin, and I'm sure the players are working hard this summer.
If for some reason you cannot see (I can on my computer) the video click on this link here.

Over half of these guys are Economics majors, which is pretty impressive to me. I took Economics 101 freshman year... and let's just say it wasn't my best class.
To be eligible for the All-Academic team one must obtain a 3.0 GPA.
Congratulations to the 16 Dutchmen and the other 165 ECAC players. The ECAC is by far the most challenging league academically in college hockey. Each team in the ECAC had at least 13 All-Academic selections, except for Clarkson who only had four (weird?).

YES! I was so worried that Stephane was going to leave for Med School and opt out of his final season in Schenectady. He is such a great student (I think he has a 3.88 GPA) and will definitely be great in the medical profession, but that can wait for just one more year.
The now senior forward is such a valuable part of Union's success and is the type of player all successful teams need. He is an extremely gritty player and is awesome at taking faceoffs. Boileau goes 110% for the whole 60 minutes and will put in a decent amount of goals.
