November was an interesting month to NCAA hockey and this season is starting to round into form. We had a recruiting battle lead to coaches yelling at each other post game. We had a leader emerge as the definite team to beat in the B1G. Atlantic Hockey has a program in their first season under a new coach in first place, a year after finishing in the league basement. The ECAC favorite is scuffling and could lose a top player to the Olympics, and picking a leader in Hockey East is murky as can be. Let’s take a look at what happened in NCAA hockey in November and look ahead to some December storylines.

Five days of games have concluded in Amherst, NY at the USA Hockey Select 16 Development Camp and there were some strong performances across different teams at the camp this week.

Continue after the jump for info on the high performers who we expect to make the all-star game or consideration for the Five Nations Tournament.
