    I liked that the list focused on their accomplishments while wearing the Huskies colors, not their overall hockey career. As a student in the 90s, if the list were to consider entire careers vs just years in Houghton, Andy Sutton would be an easy swap to replace Chris Conner. Andy really only started to shine in his senior season and then went on to a lengthy journeyman career in the NHL (676 games including the lost lock-out year). Chris got some time in the NHL (180 games) but spent most of his pro career in the AHL (700+ games). While at Tech, Chris certainly had the better four years and was the more impactful player of the two.

      Like I stated, it was a tough choice. Not saying either one is the unquestionably right answer, could easily have been a tie too. Your list may differ.

      I didn't see Angotti play, but I did see Rick Boehm score a goal from his knees (while facing away from the goal and twisting his torso) through two defenders and the goalie from Colorado College.

        This is a great list. It brings back some great memories. Thank you. I don’t have the stats, so I have to trust you, but Lou Angotti missing... (And I recognize the inherent difficulty of comparing the greatest players, of different generations)
        We have never had a Hobey Baker winner, but we have had 3 players named the NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player. Prior to the Hobey, (pre-81) it was not uncommon to have a non-winning team player named. (So it was ‘slightly’ closer to the Hobey, back in the day)

        Lou Angotti (twice, 60,52), Gary Milroy (65) and Jim Warden (75) were all named NCAA tournament MOP’s. Lou Angotti is one of only two players, to be named MOP twice. It is interesting that none of these three made the Tech Jersey Team!

          Hearing that Tech is adding a home exhibition game on Saturday October 2. Considering it's almost certainly not a Canadian school, I can only assume it's either NMU or Lake State.

            joe mentioned on this last show (on the 24th) that it was going to be northern pending the NCAA approving things... which they did.

                  Set a record audience. Maybe a couple of tidbits of interest.

                        Those who dislike mask and/or vaccine requirements need not worry about donning one or getting a shot to attend home games this season (for now anyway).

                          The Flyers are saddened by the passing of Lou Angotti, an original Flyer and our first captain.

                              The Boston Bruins announced today that fans will be required to show proof of Vaccination in order to be admitted. Expect other NHL teams to follow.
