On another note, I forgot to add to my random thoughts from the weekend about the surprise visitor Friday night on the score update thread. About half way through the game, we got a post from a soldier in Afghanistan. He was apparently a Duluth fan and was delighted to find our thread. It kept him up to speed on news about the Bulldogs!! Cool eh?

Preliminary roster for Team USA U-20 WJC (http://http://www.usahockey.com/world_junior_championship_2011/default.aspx?id=295910).

As I noted last night Drew Shore and Jason Zucker are on the roster and both should make the team. Former DU player Scott McConnell is the team's video coach.

Per Steve Miller in today's press conference - Beau Bennett had an MRI last night and the doctors will read it later today. Keep your fingers crossed that it is nothing serious.

Yeah, way cool. He posted a couple of times on Saturday, asking for SOG late in the 3rd. As a bonus, I lectured him on several topics he wasn't aware were of importance to him. ;)

Sorry to chime in late, but I forgot to post the following blurb from an email I got from someone at DU yesterday about the acceptance rate issue that we discussed yesterday. FWIW:

"One of the reasons we still have a 70% acceptance rate is that the quality of the applications has increased, so were attracting students with higher scores than previously."

When does the hockey team break for Christmas? With Murray, Wrenn and Carle at home in Anchorage do they come back for a few days or stay at home for the holidays?

In the past its always been after the last game ended. Guys from Canada would fly home directly.

Not sure what the policy this year, but DU does have a midnight flight home after the game.

What's the news on Alex Carle? May we assume he will visit with Gwoz/Miller during the Pios road trip?

I read today that Gwoz missed a practice due to a cold. Must have been one hell of a cold!:confused:

Former DU Coach, Murray Armstrong passed away yesterday in his sleep. He will be missed, but certainly never forgotten.

Sad moment in DU hockey history. The Chiefs's has been in fragile health. He had a legendary life.

RIP Murray Armstrong

We have lost a legend, but we were fortunate to have him. Almost 95 years! What an amazing life, and what an impact he had on hockey!

I put this on the Murray Armstrong thread, but it merits repeat here for posterity. All the four living men who coached DU as head hockey coaches remember Murray in DU's press release.
