    I have yet to figure out why Tech tries to push out two different streams when they rarely get one right. Pick one - HD or SD - and get that one working.

      Michigan TECHNOLOGICAL University? It's their middle name!

        Single-team Season Pass ($89.99) – For fans who only want to watch their favorite team, this package delivers live and archived coverage for the selected school's nonconference home games, select home exhibition games, all WCHA regular season league contests (home and away), AND all of that specific team's potential 2017 league postseason games (home and away). Note: Picture-in-picture and multi-view format are not available for this package.

          Not only that... the webpage no longer seems to mention which is which...
          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.

          Surrounded by Badger Red in Wisconsin. Such an ugly color, but the beer and cheese are delicious...

            Twitter says we have another commit. Don't know anything about him.

              Tyler Rockwell, a 20-year-old defenseman from San Jose, California. 5'8", 178lbs. Captain of the Wenatchee Wild (BCHL).

              We now have seven committed defensemen who are 20 years old today:

              Cooper Watson – 4/18/96
              Travis Brown – 5/6/96
              Seamus Donohue – 6/1/96
              Tyler Rockwell – 6/27/96
              Mitch Meek – 8/21/96
              Tristan Rostagno – 9/25/96
              Jake Gingell – 2/11/97

              So unless there have been unreported de-commitments (Brown?), or there are early departures (Roy?), or Kiilunen is asked to give up his spot, that means we could have 12 defensemen on the roster next year. I'm sure something has already given, and we just don't know what it is yet.

                Maybe the coaching staff is looking at moving one of them to another position to fill another opening? Always a possibility.

                    I don't know that Rockwell is much better than some of the '96 D they walked away from, but when Dad donates half-a-million dollars to the school, that's one hell of a tiebreaker.

                          John Rockwell was my first goalie coach when he played for the Huskies back in the late 70's. He also played with Mel for 3 seasons. Legacy kids are common in Tech hockey history...Pat & Jeff Mikesch, Jeff Wylie, Barry Riutta to name a couple. Some more successful than dad, some didn't cut the mustard. Still worth a shot and I hope Tyler is in the first category.

                            Me too but he's awful little, even if he were really good, it's questionable.. kind of like Gould as a d man. Personally I would like to see some more kids sign who are two years out and will be drafted next season.

                              With you on the timing of signings. But remember that two of the best offensive defensemen in Tech hockey history were smaller than Rockwell - Kip Noble and Lars Helminen. Just have to find the right pairing.

                                I'm more a fan of the John Grisdale type of guy. Big, fast, tough.
