Thanks and a request

press hatHello everyone:

As some of you already know, I was recently rehired for my former college hockey reporter position at The Gazette. As a result, I have to end my personal college hockey blog because of time constraints and also to avoid competing for page views with the Gazette’s College Hockey Blog: http://blogs.gazette.com/collegehockey/

The new/old blog will be much the same as Paisley Hockey and Eye of the Tigers before it with more Air Force and CC coverage since I am covering the teams full-time and even getting paid to do it now. That is good news for me and hopefully for college hockey fans looking for more news and links.

The @Paisleyhockey Twitter account will continue with score updates and story links from around the WCHA and AHA and soon, the NCHC. I will also maintain my Paisley Hockey Facebook page as a convenient news feed to find blog updates, etc.  I would also encourage CC fans to join the Colorado College Hockey group on Facebook where my blog updates appear regularly.

Thank you all for following Paisley Hockey. Maintaining this blog kept me up to speed on college hockey even while I juggled freelance assignments. No doubt, that preparedness played a large part in me being rehired by The Gazette.

For that and you all, I am grateful.

Joe Paisley

Monday reading: Recaps and reactions, updated WCHA standings

action_ffsemi2_bc_cross_2Here are recaps of Sunday’s notable games. The rankings will change later today.

No. 18 Wisconsin 3, No. 2 Minnesota 2

CHICAGO — Sophomore goaltender Joel Rumpel made 36 saves while sophomore forward Brendan Woods had two assists to lead Wisconsin to a 3-2 victory against Minnesota on Sunday in the OfficeMax Hockey City Classic at Chicago’s Soldier Field.

“Joel was given the game puck by the team,” Wisconsin coach Mike Eaves said. “His performance in the first period allowed us to get or feet underneath us.”

No. 12 Notre Dame 2, No. 3 Miami 1

CHICAGO — Notre Dame clinched a first-round CCHA playoff bye with a 2-1 win over Miami at the Hockey City Classic at Soldier Field, its first win over the RedHawks since Dec. 3, 2010.

Notre Dame freshman forward Mario Lucia opened the scoring midway through the second period. Junior forward Jeff Costello increased the Irish’s lead, finding the back of the net at the 8:33 mark of the third period.

Miami freshman forward Kevin Morris cut Notre Dame’s lead in half, but that was the only goal the RedHawks would score as Notre Dame held on for the win. Junior goaltender Steven Summerhays made 22 saves for Notre Dame, while Miami freshman goaltender Ryan McKay turned aside 26 shots.

Also, it was a tough week to be a top team as the Gophers beat writer points out.

No. 9 Minnesota State, the only top 10 team to sweep an opponent, is in third place in the WCHA entering a bye week.

CCHA final logoFrom the CCHA …

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – Bowling Green beat Ferris State in overtime, while Lake Superior, Northern Michigan and Miami earned victories in regulation.  Also, Western Michigan topped Ohio State in a shootout after playing to a 1-1 tie.  

Big Rapids, Mich. – Sophomore forward Ryan Carpenter scored at the 2:13 mark of overtime to give Bowling Green a 2-1 win at Ferris State. Senior forward Kyle Bonis opened the scoring for the Bulldogs in the first period before Falcons’ junior forward Cam Wojtala tied the game, 1-1, with 1:28 left in regulation. Bowling Green freshman goaltender Tommy Burke made 36 saves in the win, while sophomore goaltender CJ Motte made 30 saves for Ferris State in the loss.

Friday reading: MSU, Gophers, UND, UMD, previews, predictions

DSCF0396I am leading off with three WCHA series that more directly affect idle CC in its efforts to garner home playoff ice. The latest standings are at the end of the post.

Tenth-place Michigan Tech at sixth place (3-way tie) Minnesota State: Minnesota State is College Hockey News’ team of the week. Freshman Teddy Blueger is a big reason why the Mavs are enjoying a solid season.

MSU’s Matt Leitner is featured by the Mankato Free Press, which produces a capsule preview too.

Idle Denver’s one-point weekend against CC allowed MSU to move into CBS’ Top 10 Power Rankings.

Ninth-place Minnesota-Duluth at 11th-place Bemidji State: Minnesota-Duluth is struggling right now. Here is an injury update and more from the News-Tribune beat writer.  UMD is  one point back of the Tigers and winless since a victory at CC on Jan. 18. This may be 11th place BSU’s best chance to break through for its first win of 2013.

Third-place Minnesota (tie) at sixth-place Wisconsin (3-way tie): Here is a look at Minnesota’s league title prospects. The Gophers play Wisconsin indoors Friday and need to focus on that game to make a move up the standings against idle North Dakota and WCHA-leading St. Cloud State, which is also off this weekend.

UND’s troubles getting back to Grand Forks from Omaha this past weekend are detailed by the GF Herald folks in this video.

Third-place Nebraska Omaha is eager to pull off a road sweep of Alaska-Anchorage to try to keep up in the MacNaughton Cup race.  Despite a poor record, last-place UAA has only been swept once at home this season and Jordan Kwas is a big reason why.

Here are USCHO’s predictions for this weekend.

In other leagues, Air Force hosts Canisius in an important Atlantic series for the Falcons, who are battling to finish in the top four and earn a first-round bye. ECAC Colgate is relatively close to getting an on-campus hockey arena.

Penn State will open its new rink against Army on Oct. 11, 2013.

Here are some predictions for this weekend and the weekly USCHO column.

From the WCHA …

MADISON, Wis. – The Western Collegiate Hockey Association, through Commissioner Bruce M. McLeod, Associate Commissioner Sara R. Martin, Michigan Technological University Athletic Director Suzanne Sanregret (Chair, men’s league) and University of Minnesota Duluth Faculty Representative Al Mensinger (Chair, women’s league) has announced a record total of 114 men’s and women’s student-athletes that make up the eighth annual group of WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award recipients for 2012-13. The previous record for honorees in one season was 110 in 2011-12.
“The announcement of our annual WCHA Scholar-Athletes is always a very special time of the year,” said McLeod, Martin, Sanregret and Mensinger in a joint statement. “It is an opportunity for both the Association and our member teams to publically acknowledge the outstanding accomplishments of these young men and women and pay tribute to the amount of time, hard work and dedication each of them put into their already demanding schedules as student-athletes. Achieving this high honor is a remarkable tribute to every one of them and on behalf of the entire WCHA family, we wish them all the success in the world.”
The WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award was developed through Association member team Faculty Representatives and approved by the conference membership beginning with the 2005-06 season. To earn recognition as a WCHA Scholar-Athlete, conference-member student-athletes must have completed at least one year of residency at their present institution prior to the current academic year and must also have a grade-point average of at least 3.50 on a 4.0 scale for the previous two semesters or three quarters, or may qualify if his/her overall GPA is at least 3.50 for all terms at his or her present institution.
Over the first eight years of the award, there have now been 639 WCHA Scholar-Athlete honorees representing all 12 men’s-member and all eight women’s-member institutions. Fifty-four (54) of this season’s 114 men’s and women’s WCHA Scholar-Athletes are repeat honorees, including two four-time recipients and 21 three-time honorees.
