Bowling Green's hockey team already is looking forward to next season.
The Falcons have steadily improved during last four seasons, including records of 18-15-6 overall and a tie for third-place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
The Falcons had a winning record overall for the first time since 1997 and a winning record in league play for the first time since 2005.
BG, fourth in the WCHA coaches poll, also advanced to the semifinals of its league playoffs for the second time in the last three seasons.
"I like where we are," said BG coach Chris Bergeron, who will be in his fifth season next fall. "We've got good hockey players coming in wired the right way which is what we want. We want to put it all together.
"We're going to go into next year with expectations like we did this year. The difference will be we've been through a year with expectations and through a year of playing with a lead and being a team expected to win on some, not most, nights."

Chauncey Orr is looking forward to playing two more years with the Bowling Green men's basketball team.
Orr, the son of former BG head coach Louis Orr, will be a redshirt junior for the Falcons next season.
"That's my plan. Until told other wise, I want to be here with my brothers, and my family, and coach (Chris) Jans, who I think is a great guy. I'm ready to get this started, to get this show on the road," Orr said Tuesday afternoon after Jans was formally announced as BG's new head coach. "I'm excited. I talked with my family, and I talked with my dad, he's accepting with whatever I do. He's just here to support me in all my endeavors, and I love him for that.''
A first-team All-Ohio selection at Bowling Green High School, Orr played in 61 games his first two seasons with the Falcons. He suffered a season-ending knee injury in BG's opener this season.

It’s been a long road for Chris Jans, who has started a new chapter in his life by accepting the position as the head men’s basketball coach at Bowling Green State University.
Jans was officially introduced as the Falcons’ 16th head coach Tuesday afternoon.
“My responsibility is to win championships here. That’s all I’ve ever done,” Jans said during his press conference. “I can’t promise you when it’s going to happen, but it’s going to happen. “I can’t wait for the day when we are celebrating wins, and singing Ay Ziggy Zoomba.’’

Ryan Carpenter is ready for his next challenge.
The junior center and captain on the Bowling Green Falcon hockey team signed a pro contract Monday with the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks.
Carpenter signed a two-year entry level contract that will start next season. He will play this season under an amateur tryout agreement.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder will report this week to the Worcester Sharks, San Jose’s American Hockey League affiliate.
He’ll finish the season at Worcester and probably attend their summer prospects camp in advance of San Jose’s training camp next season.
“It definitely helped my decision that I’ll be graduating in the spring, that was really one of the factors that it came down to ... I got my degree,” said Carpenter, a 23-year-old who will graduate in May.
Carpenter, who has a 3.9 grade-point average in accounting, will graduate in just three years after taking classes for college credit while at Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Fla.
