    He's now missed a month of action. Hopefully a couple more weeks off with the rest of the team will help him out...
    I hope he gets better soon, that was a nasty and stupid hit by Marvin. That's close enough to the neck to really do some damage to a player. It looked to me like Marvin had his stick high enough to bring it across the back of Genoway's neck. That could have been a season ending hit.

    EDIT:

    I watched the tape of the hit on Genoway and that was totally malicious by Marvin. The play had actually moved on at the time of the hit. Totally unnecessary. If Marvin doesn't have a history of dishing out cheap shots he does now.

    It's got to be a few more. It was mentioned that only 17 skaters were cleared to practice last Tues or Wed. The Xmas break couldn't have come at a better time for UND. I would imagine that Hakstol will throw some fresh bodies out there against the WJC team on Saturday and probably rest some others.

    We certainly can't afford any more injuries.

    That's been mentioned a few times as well. If Kristo and Gregoire come back, plus the return of a great scorer in Frattin, next years team could be something special. That said, they'll have to find a replacement for Genoway as well, which they haven't been able to do yet this year since his injury. Hopefully these couple weeks off really help him out and he can make a return in Jan.

    UND XMas Wish List

    Short term:

    * Genoway back and healthy
    * VandeVelde back to 100%
    * Speedy recovery for Zajac
    * Keep the stellar OOC record up by doing well @ the ND Tourney and Cornell
    * Consistent goaltending

    Long term:

    * Finish top 3 in WCHA (possible?)
    * Make the Final Five
    * Win the Broadmoor
    * Win the Regional
    * Win the National Title

    There, was that so hard?
    Anything to add?

    If the old line is that it is best to finish top 3 in the league in order to have the best shot to not only make the Final Five, but to avoid the play-in game...who that is currently in the top 5 ahead of us will have to falter?
    DU and UW appear to be for real. UMD has probably some of the best offensive talent in the league. I haven't seen CC, so nothing to comment on. SCSU has good offensive depth, but probably lacks the talent level overall when compared to DU/UW/UMD/UND. There are only 6 points separating us from 1st place DU right now, so anything is possible. It all starts in Jan with home series against MSUM and DU, and a road series against UMN. The team can't be giving points away any longer...
    Well, I hate to be Mr. Negative, but.... a few thoughts on where we're at and where we're headed. Injuries are killing us. First Genoway, then VandeVelde and now Zajac. IIRC the team was pretty beat up by the time the tourny rolled around last year - who else is "dinged up" that we don't know about? Goaltending isn't what it was last year. Eids played great last year but has let in too many soft goals this year. His GAA and save % aren't bad but aren't quite what we need to win those games that we've lost by one goal or ended in a tie. Also this team hasn't figured out that they must play 60 minutes every game, which seems to be related to being so young. I think this team is built to be successful - next year.

    First, of course I've been a good boy.
    Second, it's a wish list for the team, not myself.

    The short term goals are all reachable. They mostly consist of getting players back from injury.
    The long term goals are what every high-tier team enters every season with, so that is just normal expectations.

    It's not going to get better anytime soon...
    Now we learn that Zajac is out for 4-6 weeks:

    http://www.areavoices.com/undhockey/?blog=66178

    UND entered the season with just three seniors and the youngest team in the league. It's only getting younger.

    After the 4-3 loss to Wisconsin, it was revealed that alternate captain Darcy Zajac will miss the next four to six weeks with an undisclosed injury. With Chay Genoway still out indefinitely with the concussion, UND will be down to just one senior -- Chris VandeVelde.

    The Sioux projected confidence that they'll get things going in the second half, but they'll have to do it with a lot of guys who weren't part of those previous teams.
    The ND tourney we'll be without Genoway, Zajac, and Kristo...
    I really hope that Genoway can make it back by the next WCHA series.

    Speedy recovery Darcy.

    Frustrating weekend for the Sioux.
    Stupid penalties tonight, and UW made them pay. UND is in a funk right now, and what are the odds that the funk is directly tied to Genoway's injury. This team needs him back if they want to make a 2nd half push again.
    Time to regroup and go into the ND tourney with a fresh outlook.

    Hopefully we can meet the BADgers again later on this year, with a bit more on the line.

    Even more sad is we had multiple chances to make it two points.

    They always seem to play us tough, and UND has had difficulty in sweeping opponents so far this year.
