Pre-season

In May 2008, assistant coach and former Falcon player, Doug Schueller, left the team to become the head coach of the ice hockey team at Saint John's (MN), becoming the 22nd head coach in the Johnnies' history.[1] and was replaced by another former Falcons player and graduate assistant, Dennis Williams, in July.[2] Once again in August, the hockey team lost another assistant coach, when Todd Reirden took a position as assistant coach with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League under former Bowling Green teammate Dan Bylsma[3] and was replaced with Frank Novock who was an assistant with Wayne State University's ice hockey program before it was disbanded.[4]

A month before the season, Paluch named senior defenseman Tim Maxwell and junior defenseman Kyle Page as co-captains for the upcoming season.[5] At the CCHA media day, the Falcons were voted to finish ninth by the league's coaches with 56 points and seventh by the league's media partners with 444 points.[6][7] Also at the media day, sophomore forward Jacob Cepis was named an honorable mention to the preseason all-conference team.[8] The Falcons entered the season returning 21 letter winners, while losing six including Buffalo Sabres prospect, Derek Whitmore who scored 102 points during his four-year career with Bowling Green.[7]
