Re: Huskies in the Pros

Gravel got an assist in Saturday's Kings win over Anaheim. Also got lots of good comments on the nationally televised broadcast. Late in the game, both he and the Dowder were on the power play!

Re: Committed Recruits

Good for the ThunderHawks! Go Micah!! (He MAY be a relative of mine).

Plus, it is never an "upset" if the Rapids beats Elk River :) Of course, that's because I grew up in GR . . .

No need to be sorry. I am from Grand Rapids--Skeeterman is from Fergus! Good for Mack! He is only a freshman, right? He has a lot of time--and development--before he starts thinking D-I.

Re: Huskies in the Pros

National announcers talked a lot about Nick Jensen during the broadcast--VERY complimentary. He got a ton of ice time, played very well besides the awesome goal, and seems to be a good fit for Detroit when they will change things up over the off season. He was interviewed after the game on "On the F...

Re: MOTZKO SHOW 2016-17

Motzko Show February 13, 2017 Coach Motzko was in a hurry on this night--he was on his way to watch a HS hockey game, and wasn't sure how long it would take to get there. Kolorful Ken was very helpful with travel advice, but the coach turned down requests from others at the table that he take Ken w...

Re: 27-28Jan2017- 2017 NORTH STAR CUP @ Xcel Energy Center

nchc.tv St. Cloud State vs. Minnesota Duluth Highlights - 1/28/17 I still can't figure out what Mikey Eyssimont was looking at on UMD's first goal, he tails off into no man's land instead of taking someone. He should have covered Iafallo and he would have never got that shot off. All 3 fwd's coastin...

Re: 2016-17 SCSU Men's Hockey Season

After the Motzko Show last Monday, I asked the coach if Mr. Jackson was this bubbly and excitable at the rink. No, he said. Quite serious and workman-like. Motzko also said on the show that Robby needs a "little sandpaper" and it seems that he is finding that. [DISCLAIMER] That is assuming I underst...

Re: 27-28Jan2017- 2017 NORTH STAR CUP @ Xcel Energy Center

Quite frankly, thinking/analyzing the trap gives me a headache! But I agree with HP that a quick transition game and speed is the best approach. [I even dare to think the Huskies have been seen with a "modified" trap on occasion, but sure coach Motzko would deny this!!!] Denver uses a trap (I think!...

Re: Huskies in the Pros

Great to see the former Huskies doing so well!! Charlie Lindgren is having an all-star year for St. John, Gravel and Dowd with the Kings, etc. Kossila gets the well-deserved promotion. Fun to keep track of all the former Huskies!!

Re: MOTZKO SHOW 2016-17

The Motzko Show January 23, 2017 It seems that coach Bob Motzko is seeing this edition of the Huskies playing better as a team in the past two weekends. He was pleased with the overall effort and play as his team split with perhaps the two best teams in the country--UMD and Denver. This includes mo...

Re: MOTZKO SHOW 2016-17

The Motzko Show Jan. 16, 2017 Huskies hockey coach Bob Motzko had some comments about the series in Duluth. SCSU won 2-1 Fri. and lost 4-3 in overtime Sat. Host Jim Erickson tried to ease into the Duluth discussion by asking something about the World Juniors tournament--Motzko answered, but then st...

Re: 2017 WJC Team USA coached by Bob Motzko

Question re: Ahcan. He starts the game, is on the ice for USA's first goal--made a good play to keep the puck alive in offensive zone, US scores right after. Then, he doesn't get shifts for long periods of time, was seldom with the same D partner. Did the US dress 7 defensemen against Russia? Maybe ...

Re: 30-31Dec16 Desert Classic @ Prescott Arizona

Well..that sucked. Start of the season team is back. IMO any at large bid chance just died. There have been spurts, but by and large this is a .500 team right now. We missed Ahcan, but UConn missed both Thompson and Huska. We are all waiting for the "second half surge" but no one is really picking ...
