Adam Calder


Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember the time when UND was playing at home in the first round of the WCHA playoffs, UND had two men in the box. Calder, was the first of the two to come out, took the puck on a breakaway, and scored what looked to be his 2nd short-handed goal of the game. There was a big discussion and after a lengthy delay, they decided the goal would not count. Their explanation was that Calder came out of the box too early.

I remember how livid Hennessy and O'Keefe were over that.
