  1. This could potentially be a good get for Coach Mayotte and the CC Tigers. Danny Weight, son of former NHL player Doug Weight, is transferring from Boston College to CC. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bcinterruption.com/platform/amp/2021/5/12/22432719/danny-weight-to-transfer-to-colorado-college

  3. Former UND President Mark Kennedy announces he’s stepping down as the University of Colorado’s President after a couple of very contentious years in Boulder. https://www.denverpost.com/2021/05/10/mark-kennedy-cu-president-stepping-down/
  4. Class guy. I remember him congratulating North Dakota in 2016 after winning the national championship. Glad to hear he’s turning his life around.
  5. I heard a rumor Brink was thinking about transferring to team Trainwreck of the South Suburban Adult Hockey League. Any truth to those rumors?
  6. Noah Prokop transferring from UNO to CC. He’s from Highlands Ranch, CO.
  7. I wonder what the Don’s stance on older players will be now that he’s the new commish of a conference full of smaller schools who rely on getting older players than, say, schools like “the U”?
  8. I think he’s got a good thing going at AF and is quite content.
  9. I’d love to know too. CC’s great about keeping the public in the dark on stuff like that such as Haviland’s term and salary.

  11. The only inside track I have regarding CC hockey is with the concourse beer garden.
  12. The shot of the guy eating his nachos with that scowl was pretty funny.
  13. Found this picture of the St. Cloud trainer tonight during the game
  14. I’m late to the party but has anyone mentioned we got a “Yo, ding dong! Ding dong,Yo!” from Bucci?!?!
  15. I like what coach Carvel has done to turn UMass around. They’ve been second (or third or fourth) fiddle to the Boston blue bloods for years so fun to see them in the spotlight. Plus, the little I’ve seen of them this season, they play fast, hard, and aggressive. Was really impressed how they battled back in that third period to tie it and then dominate the OT against Duluth. I’m pulling for UMass.
  16. A funny story I do remember was about 15 years ago. An ex- wanted to go to a CC/Bemidji game down at World Arena since she grew up there in Bemidji and was a fan of BSU. So, we go and I buy each of us a beer late in the first period of a scoreless and dreadfully boring game. Then, out of nowhere a CC player springs a teammate on a breakaway and they score with, like, 3 seconds left in the period! I literally jumped out of my seat, throwing my hands in the air and out flying was a tall draft beer. It was like the Matrix movies, it felt slow motion as I desperately tried catching the p
  17. That was the thing probably! Game was still probably going on and I wanted to get my Molson and get back to my seat ASAP so I didn’t miss anything!
  18. I’m reminded by a fellow CC hockey buddy that about ten years ago, at Magness Arena, a DU fan wanted to fight me for committing the cardinal sin of wearing a Sioux jersey and walking out to the concourse to buy a beer. The event was so traumatic, I have no recollection of the event ever happening. I must’ve laughed, gotten my beer, and walked away. Turns out he’s the ex-boyfriend of another friend’s wife and she said the guy was nuts. That he hates North Dakota (clearly) with a passion. Sad someone internalizes a game to that degree.
  19. For the record, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell the story of a former coworker and SCSU grad who invited me multiple times up to St. Cloud from Denver for a series or two against UND and CC. While the timing didn’t work out and I couldn’t attend, at one of the series, he caught an SCSU game puck and gave it to me when he returned to Colorado as he knows I collect college pucks so that was way cool of him. He knew I not only collected store bought pucks but have a particular fondness for game used pucks with the logo on the front and back and all the scratches, nicks, and dings in them.
  20. Funny story each of the first three years of the Frozen Faceoff there was this kid, probably about 18-19. He cheered for both St. Cloud and Duluth as well as whoever else happened to be playing UND. He’d jump up wildly and scream his head off anytime UND got scored on, took a penalty, etc. Totally pissing off the UND fans around him. The great irony was, he always wore a Parise Minnesota Wild jersey. After one of his recent spastic bouts, I asked him, “You do realize where Zach Parise played his college hockey right?”
  21. My buddy and his wife took a road trip to St. Cloud a few years ago for a series against CC. He’s been to virtually every barn in HE, ECAC, and the NCHC and met a lot of cool fanbase and he said by far, St. Cloud’s was the worst. Thought their you know what didn’t stink, were at best apathetic towards them and at worst downright rude. They didn’t bother staying for the Saturday night game, choosing to drive down I-94 for the Gophers/Harvard game (good choice as that game went to overtime). I can’t bring myself to root for St. Cloud tomorrow either. Would be very happy seeing Coa
  22. He makes a lot of acrobatic saves which, while flashy, typically means he’s out of position.
  23. His numbers would tell someone who’s not familiar with him or CC hockey a different story but watching him as much as I did this season, he really seems to have the fundamentals. That, and he appears to be a calming presence out there. Certainly much better positioning and fundamentals than Vernon.
