In today's Daily Collegian, Nick Canelas takes a look at the freshmen duo of Steven Iacobellis and Ray Pigozzi who skated on UMass' second line with redshirt-junior Troy Power last weekend:

It's not too often that Steven Iacobellis and Ray Pigozzi aren't together. They're roommates, they're both freshmen and in a matter of weeks they've already become good friends.

One thing that brings the pair together is a very common interest: hockey. When they're in their dorm room, they're usually talking about it. When they're not, they're practicing and playing alongside one another on the same line for the Massachusetts hockey team.

In the Minutemen's first two games this season, Iacobellis and Pigozzi were placed on the second line with redshirt junior forward Troy Power, and their immediate chemistry was already noticeable.

The trio accounted for two of UMass' three goals this weekend in losses to Boston University and UMass Lowell.
