Former Tigers Nate Prosser and Chad Rau took part in the Wild’s outdoor practice on Sunday. Both are quoted in this article about the experience.

Joey Crabb was promoted to the Leafs’ second line headed into a Monday-Tuesday set. It doesn’t mean nerves aren’t a little frayed. He and a teammate got into a fight on Sunday. The link has a video interview. Sounds like Crabb fought well, but don’t expect him to drop the gloves against an enforcer any time soon.

The split at Minnesota dropped the Tigers from No. 11 to 12 in this week’s poll and up from 11 to No.10 in the USA Hockey Magazine rankings.

CC dropped from No. 9 to 11 in the INCH power rankings.

Junior forward Eriah Hayes had a roller-coaster weekend for MSU Mankato.

Here’s the Gazette’s look back on Air Force and CC’s weekend.

Alaska-Fairbanks is taking a lead role in the organization of the new WCHA in 2013. The article also mentions that Wisconsin-Green Bay, Minnesota State-Moorhead, Iowa State and Alabama-Huntsville are all under consideration to become the league’s 10th member since Green Bay and Iowa State, as long rumored,  are considering adding Division I programs. Both Moorhead and Huntsville are working to raise money to start/sustain their programs.
