I still wonder what the 1986-87 "Hrkac Circus" national championship team would've been with this guy as a freshman forward.

Gotta love the glaring typo by the School (!) on its dot matrix, tractor-fed paper banner hanging across the trophy case.

It's Bemidji. ;) :D 

And I bet you it was daisy-wheel fed paper with the edges torn off. :p

He was a friend of mine and he was a hell of a football player. We were teammates. He was one nicest guys You’d ever met. He would’ve excelled in any sport he played in if he hadn’t been taken from us. 

He had one of the hardest slapshots I’ve ever seen. He blew people up,when he tackled them. He was a physical specimen. 

I was in Army stationed in Germany when a friend and teammate of mine sent me a letter about George’s death. It devasted our high school. My dad sent me a copy of a the hockey news and they covered George’s funeral. I still get sad today when read about his death.

It is an absolute shame.  I visited with someone that played hockey for Bemidji around the same time and you could tell years later it still affected him.  Even a bigger shame that the brother destroyed another family while driving years after his drunk driving accident with George.

Jost sent down to the A

Good lord I feel bad for him.... Forever the poster child for Top picks NEEDING time to develop. I just wish Colorado and Tyson would have chosen better.

Jost was a 3 year NCAA player if I've ever seen one.

Hopefully he gets his game straightened out in thr AHL.

I think Jost is going to have a Rocco like NHL career.

Up and down.

Looks like Cags might be on the second line tonight with Kane vs the Rangers.

(Edmonton and maybe Chicago) Fans seems to hate his productivity, but coaches seem to love his heart and determination.

To be fair Jost already has twice as many games in the N as Rocco.  Also it seems like Rocco finally is fitting in, don't jinx him!

Honestly thats a direct result of draft position 10th vs. 33rd... 1st round vs. 2nd round. 

1st rounders are given the benefit of the doubt, 2nd rounders have to beat the doubt to get the benefit.

........ that was yoda like wisdom...

Funny. Just pointing out the obvious to everyone with the Hak knee pads.

After the last few seasons, sure beats the hell out of B's ankle pads...

Just a beast. A man among boys.  Look at his arms, for a hockey player back in the day he's solid linebacker size.....but on skates no less.
