RPI forward lines all brand new

Now, neither Ryan Haggertry nor Matt Neal is skating with Jacob Laliberte, RPI's top centerman and leading scorer.
Coach Seth Appert had dramtatically jumbled the forward lines for tonight's ECAC Hockey game with Colgate. Appert had moved Haggerty off what had been the Engineers' top line a couple weeks ago.
Now, sophomore Neal is at left wing on a line centered by freshman Mark Miller and with junior Matt Tinordi at right wing.
Haggerty, also a soph who leads the Engineers in goals with eight, is on sophomore Mark McGowan's line, with C.J. Lee at left wing.
Laliberte (7-9-16) will center for two productive freshmen -- Milos Buela (7-6-13) on right wing, Mike Zalewski (3-6-9) on the left.
Senior Marty O'Grady (1-4-5 in 12 games) centers the fourth line, with junior Johnny Rogic at LW and senior Greg Burgdoerfer on the right.
Junior Brock Higgs, a regular and second on the team in assists with eight, sits out after taking a puck to the head (his helmet was shattered) last week at Princeton.
Freshman goalie Jason Kasdorf is back in uniform and it appears he'll start, though no announcement in that regard has been made.
Defensive pairings are Leonard-Bailen, Leboeuf-Bradley, Curadi-Dolan.
