Tuesday reading: Bachman, McElhinney, Simpson, UND, Frozen 4

Former Tiger goalie Richard Bachman is embracing that his name was once the pseudonym for author Stephen King by wearing a Shining-inspired mask.

Bachman worked with the artist to create this mask, ignoring the fact that The Shining wasn’t a Bachman book.

I am guessing that it is because the book was set in Colorado and was inspired by the Stanley Hotel near Estes Park. Bachman is from nearby Highlands Ranch, Colo.

Bachman may participate in Tuesday’s DU pro camp at Magness Arena while former Tiger Curtis McElhinney is confirmed.

A new union is likely for CHL (Canadian major junior) players very soon. It will be interesting to see how this may affect the recruiting wars between NCAA programs and the CHL.

North Dakota’s Dillon Simpson is profiled and reviewed by Edmonton media. The 2012-13 roster for UND was announced on Monday and Taylor Dickin has transferred to Manitoba.

According to the Bowling Green Sentinel-Tribune, Bowling Green sophomore goalie Wyatt Galley withdrew from the school after not playing during the regular season last season and undergoing hip surgery this summer.

This looks like a good way to spur ticket sales: The NCAA Division III championship game may be played on the Friday in between the D-1 semifinals and championship in 2014 in Philadelphia.
