  1. I have an extra ticket in Section 207 Row #19. You'll see the green and white UND banner that's waved the last 4 NCAA title teams to victory waving next to you! LOL. GO SIOUUUUX! Coooop in Cincy, OH. 513-605-0428
  2. University of North Dakota Hockey 2016 - 2017 Season

    Thanks UND Red Sox fan, for your logical reply to the websites list (not mine). It will be verrry interesting to see the October roster. Coach Berry carried 7 D & not 8 like Coach Hakstol did some years (probably as backups for injuries). The younger ones can wait a year but once anyone's drafted their next clock starts ticking: NHL signing. GO SIOUX! Coop "Signing" Out. Hey! Now that IS funny! LOL.
  3. University of North Dakota Hockey 2016 - 2017 Season

    The question is a rhetorical one for all us SIOUX fans. It will be interesting to see what the coaches reveal to us this October based on the roster spots open for competition after this coming off-season early departures. Time will tell. Yes I know all about the recruiting pipeline and that's why I included the link to show you those pipes. So hopefully the rest of the fans will take a minute and click on the link learn more. I'll post it again since you didn't click it. It works: http://www.collegecommitments.com/DepthChart.aspx?i7cq9=-1427512342 We have 14 recruits in the 2016-17 "pipe", 5 in the 2017-18 pipe, 3 in 2018-19 & 1 in 2020-21. That's 23 in the pipeline, not the 14 you assumed. The coaches can delay a recruit or 2, but if the recruits are older, they may not wait. It's happened before and will happen again but maybe next season with more than 1 or 2 recruits. PS There are the same 12 spaces in "charliefunny" as in "The Sicatoka?" I guess we can call you "Count"? LOL. GO SIOUUUX, Coooop PPS: Nick Jones can start in Jan 2017, the second half of 2016-17 season.
  4. University of North Dakota Hockey 2016 - 2017 Season

    How's UND going to add these 14 players by this Oct? Plus 22-yr olds Chartrand and Gornall? http://www.collegecommitments.com/DepthChart.aspx?i7cq9=-1427512342. I'm sure the coaching staff is out now evaluating Hoff, Yon, Evers, Johnson & Peski in the USHL playoffs. Coop Poolman, Colton LD 1995 Jost, Tyson C 1998 Peski, Andrew RD 1997 Smith, Cole F 1995 Johnson, Casey LD 1996 Hoff, Ludvig C 1996 Kiersted, Matthew LD 1998 Bowen, Dixon C/RW 1996 Yon, Zach LW 1995 Evers, Christian LD 1997 Bast, Gabe RD 1996 Mattson, Mitchell C 1998 Cakebread, Christian C 1997 Jones, Nick F 1996
  5. 2016 IIHF U18 World Championship

    UND could be tops on Finland's Eeli Tolvanen's college list now that he's played in the Ralph, used the great facilities & was Sioux City roommates with UND recruit Jackson Keane. Eeli's brother is going to No. MC (http://www.ushl.com/news_article/show/602226?referrer_id=1348814-top-story). UND's Janatuinen added more SISU (Finnish for Determination in Adversity!) to his game this and in Sioux City last year. Joel loved that word when I told him that at the Midwest Regional and Frozen Four. GO SISIOUX! LOL. Coop
  6. Early Departures 2016 Edition

    Ladue: Drafted in 2012 (age 24 in Sept), think the Kings have till Aug 2017 to sign him (Like Gregoire)? I read http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/paul-ladue/: Future LaDue is in his junior season at the University of North Dakota in 2015-16. A strong two-way defenseman who can control the play with his skating and contribute to the attack, he has been a big part of the Fighting Sioux' success under first-year head coach Brad Berry. An assistant captain, LaDue's game is close to NHL-ready but with the depth in the Kings' system he may use his final year of college eligibility in 2016-17.
  7. In the lower bowl that's about 4,000 UND seats sold at about $75 average price per ticket for around 300k$ total income in a week of sales. I bet MSG is pretty amazed since the event is 8 month away! Like someone on the Sioux blog typed last year, UND could play on the MOON and we'd get 1000 fans! We DO have the aeronautical school just need astronautics to get to the moon via vacuum? Maybe MSG is inner space but outta this world! LOL. I R N ingin-ear. Keep the noggin sharp with mental (not dental) exercises.;-p
  8. To reserve a room at the Wyndham New YAWker, if Rate Code CHSUND doesn't woik, try 12166961CH or call 212-971-0101 & talk with Reservations. I tried CHSUND code and it kept saying no rooms left at that rate. Soooooo I called Reservations and Heidi (not in Boston or Fargo!) got me a room for $299/nite or $693 for Dec 2-4. She's from DR so tenga un buena fin de semana. Muy amable para Nuevo York Cuidad. "Vamos SIOUX!" Jajaja. Coop!
  9. You might want to hold off on reserving hotel rooms at Wyndham or elsewhere, if there's a group hotel planned. There are cheaper rates than $500 MINIMUM! Datz alotta coin for me. Stay tooned! Coop

  14. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    From Coooop: ;-D LET"S GO SIOOOUX! Kiersted & Mattson are invited to the 2014 NTDP U-17 team tryout camp: (http://unitedstatesofhockey.com/2014/03/11/2014-ntdp-tryout-camp-roster-announced/) Kiersted: Feb 2014 Uncommitted Prospects Report: (http://overtheboards.net/uncommitted-mnhs-prospects-2014/) #5: 98 D Matt Kiersted – Elk River; Height: 5’10, Weight: 155 Slick defender is money in the offensive zone, all business with sharp stick-work and intuitive skating ability allowing him to get into the ideal spots to contribute. The rest of his game is coming along, but he’s coming on strong in the second half of the season, with 13 important points in 13 games as the mid-season departure of forward Andrew Zerban left a void in the Elks offensive assault. Should Kiersted stick around next season, he’ll likely be looked to in an even bigger role as the Elks have a stellar group of young forwards coming up from the Bantam ranks. Oct 2013 Elite D League Scoreboard: "Matt Kiersted, a sophomore defenseman from Elk River, scored a hat trick in the Elite D all-stars’ 5-5 tie with Great Plains on Saturday. “It was a great opportunity,” Kiersted said. “We figured they were going to underestimate us. So we just came out with fire and tried to get pucks to the net.” (https://mnhockeycoach.sportngin.com/news_article/show/299430?referrer_id=672819) After June 2013 Select 15 Festival: "On defense, there's a lot of very good players, but not necessarily any surefire pro prospects beyond Lindgren. Next best to me would be Elk River's Matt Kiersted, who has one of the quickest first steps I've seen". (http://www.sbncollegehockey.com/western-college-hockey-recruiting-ncaa/2013/6/13/4424478/minnesota-select-15-festival-report) Mattson: After June 2013 Select 15 Festival: "Mattson - Grand Rapids. Big and elusive. Will become hard to knock off puck. ..The other would be Grand Rapids bantam forward Mitch Mattson, a tall skinny kid with nice hands and a very fluid skater for a tall kid of that age, they usually have that kind of gangly, new-born-colt look at that age when they are tall".

  15. New Nickname

    Keep it as it is now. Very Unique: no nickname and North Dakota as the logo. If the NCAA thinks North Dakota means allies or friends is offensive then ask Congress to change the state name. The fans can still yell LET'S GO SIOUX!
