    Great in practice(from what we've heard), can't finish in games. The bright lights of The Ralph/UND hockey may have affected him so I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see him put up points at CC.

    I thought Wade Murphy was the king of practice that couldn't score in games, and was a late round pick but not in the first year of eligibility...

     O'Donnell was in a somewhat similar situation but stuck it out rather than bolt.

    According to the guys on the team, Wilke has the hardest shot. I had also heard Coach Haviland say that he was one of the best players on the team last season during practice. I hope Wilke has a break out season this year (just not against North Dakota) ;)

    His comment that he gets in to position and shoots while everyone does the work sums up why he didn't pan out here. At CC he's a marquee player; at UND he was just another draft pick buried in the depth chart, so if he can't grind he sits.

    No hard feelings or anything, but that was an incredibly telling statement on his part.

    With the recent hire by the Herald,

    It had me a little worried, especially reading her job description from the post.

    Herald sending multiple people on the road covering the team?????

    Considering they took Nate Wells they are paying attention to college hockey, and he's.... not particularly skilled as a writer to put it nicely.

    What was the name of the kid who pulled the plug on us a few years back in August of the year he was supposed to come and left Hak trying to find a kid to replace him.  I think this kid went almost straight to the NHL.  And who was the kid from Minn (I think Edina or someplace around there) that Hak recruited?  

    That was because the Rangers signed him so he was no longer eligible. It sucked mainly because that year was the injury-plagued season. Gaarder scored in multiple frozen four games and had the double OT goal against Ferris though, he's a Sioux legend in my book.  Will take that any day over a one and done.


  5. Had this kid pegged as Michigan or BC. Did a double take to see if it was the same kid I was thinking of when word got out. Major recruiting coup. Hoping Schloss can get the list of other schools that offered when he interviews him.

    Rizzo was on our radar for a while (even before playing at Penticton), and it felt like only a matter of time until he committed. This was out of left field (for fans anyways). Wonder if Drake is upping our appeal in Toronto.

    I picked up a tidbit of information while over in Wisconsin this past weekend.  Rumor is that one of the UW D3 schools is studying moving their hockey program to D1 status.  Applied for and were recently granted a waiver from the NCAA to have D1 hockey while remaining D3 in all other sports (I believe the other D1/D3 schools with this structure have grandfathered status), and the D1 study is being funded by the Minnesota Wild, so there is that NHL & College Hockey Inc. connection.  I cannot remember the name of which UW school it was, I want to say Eau Claire, but don't quote me on that.  

    Word is this is just the first UW school looking at this and there may be more.  Thought was that if Minnesota could support 5 D1 hockey programs that Wisconsin could support about 3, so there are a few schools looking into D1 hockey.

    Eau Claire and Stevens Point are the only ones that would make sense. Maybe River Falls.

    This bait and switch crap is unacceptable. They promise these kids that they'll pay for their college education if they choose them over the NCAA and when it is time to make good on it, the kids are told "Well, it just doesn't work that way here". This is the best argument for the NCAA over CHL.

    ACHA should start allowing CHL alum to play, it'll raise the competition level in their league and give CHL players more options.

    The new CCHA wouldn’t have two Alaska schools or DII Minnesota schools.

    Always imagined that Spokane and Boise would make great college hockey cities.  EWU is moving the the PAC8 ACHA DII conference.  Boise St is already there.  EWU is merging their two club teams that played in the BCIHL and the NorPac and is stepping up.  Don’t know where they would get money to go varsity though.  Boise is probably more promising.

    It's a somewhat old tweet but the U of O student manager is trying to elevate their program.

    Not really. You can’t dangle that carrot if he’s already eaten it.

    That much more impressive on the coaching resume. Having dad on the bench likely makes it a career aspiration for both of the sons.
