  • Re: Michigan Tech 2011-12 Season Thread, Part II: You're gonna need a bigger bandwago

    1918 - The formal ice hockey program is suspended due to World War I. The team resumed play in 1919, but went back to playing at outdoor rinks and at the Pavilion Rink across from MIT, as the Boston Arena burned down in the fall of 1918. The Arena would be rebuilt and re-open in the fall of 1921.

      I would like to take a moment to remember the late Notre Dame hockey coach, Charles "Lefty" Smith, who died on Tuesday. Shirtless Guy posted memories of Lefty last March that are identical to mine: "Notre Dame was in the WCHA all four years I was at Tech. They were decent but not great and it was a friendly rivalry. I got a kick out of our little school beating them on a regular basis. I remember coach Lefty Smith used to give a sharp whistle for the line changes which was followed by a chorus of whistling from the fans."

      There's an excellent article in the South Bend Tribune about Coach Smith that's worth reading. He was one of those coaches, along with Coach Macinnes, who made the WCHA so great in the 70s.

        I think that if a nacho team comes to Houghton for the playoffs in the next two years we host it at the DEE for old times sake.

                    MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.

                      Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
