SWEET!! Great image of a great guy and excellent role player for the Huskies. Are these images going to be displayed at the Brooks Hockey Center? Good idea to put up photos of the seniors.

If not, how much for a print?? :D


Hey, wait a minute! Just noticed that Taylor was wearing #24. Huh? Did he wear that number in earlier years? That is HEDICAN'S number, and thought that #24 was now retired. SOOOO many off-season questions. . . .

Agreed on all points with Boomer!

Very cool!
They best be going up in the Brooks Center, or at least available as prints ;)

That must have been a photo from his freshman year, double checked through USCHO.com and found that as the only year he's work 24

I contacted the company about prints, but I doubt anything will come of it. There also isn't really room in the rink for canvas prints of every player, so I'm not anticipating those. They're not even planning on putting the pro jerseys back up due to lack of wall space.

I just remembered this video, I can't recall if it was posted earlier. It is a Cribs-like video of Hanowski and his roommates.

Yup, I posted it actually

Still an awesome video that shows they're still just young guys, despite being pro hockey players. :)

Also, that really sucks that the pro sweaters aren't going back up, always liked looking at those before/after Games. :(

They were missing several players too. I asked Weems about them. She said they weren't sure what they would end up doing with them, but it didn't sound like there was much hope of them going anywhere. Maybe they'll put the bigger names up in the offices.

Not Huskies news but UND forward Rocco Grimaldi has left school to sign a 3 year contract with the Florida Panthers.

We've got an old team next season. Here are a few tidbits...

• Incoming freshman Blake Winiecki will be the 3rd youngest member of the team, but will be turning 21 halfway through the season.
• Incoming freshman Judd Peterson will be the 7th youngest member of the team.
• Incoming freshman Nate Widman will be the 11th youngest member of the team.
• Incoming freshman Patrick Russell will be the 12th youngest member of the team.
• By the end of the season, only incoming freshman Mika Ilvonen will be under Minnesota's legal drinking age (though he's legal in Finland now).
• On opening day, the average age of the 2013-2014 roster was 22y/3m, the 23rd oldest in D1 hockey. It'll be higher this year, but I'm not going to calculate by how much. CHN will do that for me at the beginning of the season.
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.

Heard from somebody who works at the university they they apparently are going to reveal the new Husky Head logo some time next week. Also hearing that they did take some suggestions into consideration with them and tweaked them.... also heard from another source it still looks ugly but they weren't at liberty to say what was changed or which logo they went with (until it's unveiled of course).

I wonder how long it lasts if no one buys anything with the new one on it which seemed to be the consensus.

If they seriously are forcing the new logo through they are in for some SERIOUS backlash from alumni, fans, students, etc.
Both in complaints AND with their wallets.

Even with tweaks, I don't see either logo being good.

I've never seen a good explanation as to why it has to be changed. They didn't get a good response with the ideas but they seem to have their fingers in their ears screaming "la, la, la" which is always such a good marketing strategy...

The new secondary logo is awful. It is cartoony and not good publicity for the school. It's just bad business for a school that from the outside, is not taken very seriously at times and has a hard time with public image as it is. I love everything Heather has done up to this point but this is a big WHIFF
