Syracuse loses Mellen and Forkin to season-ending injuries

Syracuse All-American defenseman Nick Mellen will undergo season-ending surgery, head coach John Desko said Thursday. Mellen was the only returning defenseman from last season’s Atlantic Coast Conference tournament-winning team due to the graduation of stalwarts Brandon Mullins and Jay McDermott. The West Genesee (New York) High School graduate was expected to cover the best team’s offensive player in most games, Desko said.

The No. 5 Orange (1-0) now need to find its way with patchwork defensive line with Marcus Cunningham, last year’s fourth defender; Tyson Bomberry, who appeared in four total games prior to this season; and Scott Firman, a converted longstick midfielder. Freshman Nick DiPietro and redshirt freshman Andrew Helmer also played a lot defensively against Siena.

Last season, the 5-foot-9, 178-pound Mellen finished third on the team in groundballs (38) and tied for second in caused turnovers (14).

“There’s definitely always struggles when Mellen is out of the lineup,” Bomberry said. “He’s such a great player with his feet, just an all-around player.”

Losing a star defenseman always hurts.

 

Regardless, let's go collect a win at the dome!

I know this isn't remotely the same as dealing with Siena in terms of quid pro quo games (which is hard enough), but has there ever been discussion of Syracuse coming to us for a game sometime?

We could have hosted Cuse last year in the NCAA's if we had won the AE tournament. 

 

This seems like the deepest team Albany has ever had, and thank goodness Coach Marr finally decided to make recruiting a top notch FOGO a priority. Not to take anything away from Zach, because he improved big time throughout the season and had a strong first half in the NCAA's against Syracuse.

 

I am not sure if it is going to happen tomorrow, but if Albany can consistently win 60% of the face-off's this could be a big year for the Danes. 

 

This is the second year post Lyle Thompson and watching the interview with Coach Thomson you get the sense that while you can never replace a Lyle and Myle's Thompson, this may be an overall better offensive team with the greater depth and ball movement.

I see ACC Network Extra is broadcasting the game.  Will it be available online?

the ball movement and patience looks just awesome. Not forcing anything. Looking for the perfect shot.
