Colgate men's hockey is 9-9-2 this season

HAMILTON — The Colgate men's hockey team closed the 2022 calendar year with a tie.

Colgate played non-conference foe Maine to a 1-1 stalemate on Saturday at the Class of 1965 Arena in Hamilton.

Combined with a 5-2 win Friday over Maine, Colgate is 9-9-2 overall this season. Neither Colgate nor Maine are ranked in the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls released Monday.

The teams traded goals in the second period about eight minutes apart. After Maine grabbed a 1-0 lead, Alex Young scored his team-best 12th goal for Colgate on the power play in the second period.

Alex Young tied the game with his 12th game of the season with a power play goal with eight minutes remaining in the second. Matt Verboon played the puck to Nick Anderson, who dished it across the ice to Young for a shot he ripped into the back of the net.

The Raiders claimed a shootout 3-1 victory after Ethan Manderville, Young, and Simon Labelle made their shootout attempts.

Carter Gylander, a 2019 seventh-round NHL draft pick by the Detroit Red Wings, totaled 28 saves and stopped 1-of-2 shooters in the shootout. He's 9-8-2 this season.

Carter made some very difficult saves and made them look relatively easy. He was very good tonight," longtime Colgate coach Don Vaughan said in a release. "The battle for those top four spots in the (ECAC Hockey) standings is going to be crazy."

Colgate is 6-2 in the ECAC Hockey conference. The team has conference games next weekend in the Albany area when they are scheduled to play 7 pm. Friday at RPI and 4 p.m. Saturday at Union.
