Wednesday reading: Duluth suspensions, league news, Hobey voting

rylan roadAccording to the Duluth News Tribune, Minnesota-Duluth will have three top players out of the lineup for Friday’s home game against Michigan Tech to serve a one-game suspensions for violating team rules.

Senior forward and captain Cody Danberg, senior defenseman Wade Bergman and freshman forward Austin Farley will sit for the unspecified violations. The Bulldogs had a bye last weekend.

Here is a look at recent developments in the WCHA and an update from North Dakota.

Colorado Springs native Josh Holmstrom, a junior forward at UMass-Lowell, and Colorado College seniors Mike Boivin and Rylan Schwartz made the first phase of fan balloting for the 2013 Hobey Baker Memorial Award. The three are among the 77 student-athletes under consideration.

Fan voting opened earlier this week at hobeybakeraward.com and will remain open until March 10.

    Joe. CC’s defensive play has been horrible since the Bemidji series. Defensive play has never been Owens strong point but it is being exposed graphically this season. I believe if the Tigers don’t right the ship and finish at least .500 it will begin to affect recruiting. The quality of recruits seems to have suffered over the past few years as it is. How will this affect the transition to the NCHC next season? How much longer does Owens have on his contract? I’m not calling for his firing…yet. Just curious about the program. Seems to be status quo to embrace mediocrity as long as CC is making money.
