News And Notes: Hennigar, LaCosta, Analytics In Hockey, Previews

Here are a few stories of interest from the last few weeks:

- Sarah Rouse of the Brunswickan catches up with former Varsity Red stars Rob Hennigar and Dan LaCosta to talk about their new roles as members of the team's coaching staff.

- Meanwhile, fellow Brunswickan writer Jamie Tozer discusses the rise of advanced statistics and analytics in hockey, noting that UNB may be the first CIS team to make use of these valuable tools.

- A number of season previews have popped up over the past week or so, including those from Tozer and the AUS.

- Of course, the "bible" of all previews is still written by Bruce Hallihan at the Daily Gleaner (subscription required), who expects the V-Reds to hold off Acadia for 1st place and be in the mix for another National Championship.
