Talks about JBD at WJC and Bast's return:

Quote

Junior defenseman Gabe Bast is getting closer to returning after sustaining an upper-body injury in October.

Bast, who hasn't played since Oct. 19 at Minnesota State-Mankato, is skating again and went through all of the team's drills Monday. While it's doubtful that he plays at Western Michigan this weekend, Bast should be ready to return after Christmas break.

UND sweeps weekly NCHC awards. First team to do that since 14-15:

Guchi gets his third already this year and is the first forward for UND to earn the weekly award three times in a season. Boeser won it twice in 16-17.

As happy as I am for these honors, to play devil's advocate, there wasn't much NCHC action last weekend. But they did run rough shot on UM so it still may have happened with a full slate of games.

JBD one of four NCAA players selected to Canada's WJC camp roster. Awesome for this guy. Totally deserving, in my book.

This is a dream for Canadian kids.  I hope against hope they don't use him going to college as a way to hold him off like they've done to countless other kids.  

The only way I see him not making Canada based on talent and not politics is if he gets hurt.

He'll make it, he was one of the final cuts last year and is having a good year so far.

Well, if they do that, they are making their team worse. I think he gets in, for sure. JBD is a stud.

I feel ya, but three teams did play. Looking at the stats of the players, the only one who may have not gotten it was Scheel, but it is what it is.

What’s justifiable is that it hadn’t been done in so long. There certainly have been weeks where the same situation has happened in the last 5 years without it happening. So that’s good.

Not fitting the style the Canadians plan to play this year could be a factor. (I don't know their plans; I do know you have to pick players for your system.)

I mean, JBD is pretty much an all-around defensmen. He really lacks a deficiency, IMO.

Driving home from the St. Cloud sweep at 10-1-2, and hearing on the radio that the next four were @Minn and @WMU, I figured 12-x-y at the break would be solid. 

Instead we see GF-GA of 21-7 and 14-1-2. 

Impressive.

Will Pinto make the USA WJC roster? They are naming it tomorrow.

I'm really hoping so. I'll be in Czechia for three of the U.S. games and would love to see him out there!

Using “What If” calculator, if the Sioux only split/get 3 point each series their remaining conference games, I could not find a scenario where they would finish lower than 3rd in the conference. Assuming they do better than split, they will have home ice and be a #1 or #2 seed in March. Let’s just hope they stay healthy. As well as they are playing, they have excellent healthy scratches each series so they can handle a couple short term injuries, just none of those season ending ones. I’d like to see Thome on December 28. They’ll need to replace Pinto and JDB for that one too. Any chance Albrecht will see the ice this year?

If we and DU are both 1-seeds, we won't be there. But, if either one is a 1-seed and the other is not, you can absolutely book it, we'll be there.

Not necessarily. If Mankato ends up the number one overall seed, they’ll get placed first at the regional closest to home, which is Colorado. I have seen very few (if any) scenarios in the last 10 plus seasons where the overall number one was placed at a regional that wasn’t closest to home. 
 

People can argue on attendance all they want, that didn’t give us the St Paul regional in 2016 over SCSU when they were seeded higher either. We would’ve brought more fans there but NCAA didn’t care.

Have you seen any scenarios in the last 10 plus seasons where the closest regional was nearly 800 miles from the #1 seed's home?
