For the second straight day Dylan Larkin was named the player of the game for Team USA. Had an assist on the opening goal by Sonny Milano then added a goal of his own to make the game 2-0.
USA went on to win 3-0 and remain in 2nd place (8 pts) behind Canada (9pts). USA will play Canada in what should be a preview of the finals in Montreal on Dec. 31st at 4:00pm.
Congrats to Dylan on what is quickly becoming a very impressive WJC for him.
NCAA.com is hosting a voting bracket for the all time Frozen Four Champion.
Today, the 1956 M team is facing the 1985 RPI team, which is a bad match up IMO. I voted with my head (the RPI '85 team), but can't blame you for voting with your hearts (MICHIGAN).
LINK: 1985 RPI vs 1956 M
Right now, M is down 73-27%.
AFAIK, all voting is via twitter:
Per Michael Spath on twitter, Michigan forward Phil DiGiuseppe has signed with the Carolina Hurricanes which voids his last year of eligibility with the team.
And so begins another summer of Michigan Hockey and seeing who will still be here once the new season begins. Losing him is not crippling, but also not ideal. Hopefully everyone else stays because the depth still eligible and the incoming recruiting class has the ability to make some noise next year.
EDIT: per Mark Edwards on twitter, Alex Guptill has also signed an entry level deal with the Dallas Stars
Is anyone here planning on traveling to the Twin Cities for the tournament? I'll unfortunately be out of town when UM comes here to play the Gophers but will be back in time for the tournament.
Would love to know which section to look for tickets in.
With next week's game (Jan 23rd) vs MSU at Joe Louis I was wondering if there was a standard "side" of the arena Michigan fans typically are designated? I assumed the band will be on the Upper Level, but haven't been able to locate where.
Looking to take my fiance to her first Michigan hockey game and want her to get a taste for the experience. She hasn't been able to make a game at Yost yet, so thought this would be a good start.
Thanks in advance!
I know there's already two hockey topics on the front page but I think this one is worthy of its own since most are unlikely to get sifting through those threads for this video. (And we're in a dead period anyway)
Alex got the game-winning shootout goal in the 7th round last night to beat #4 Ferris State and this video has been making the rounds on hockey blogs (I've seen it shown up in a few places already). People have called it "Datsyukian". Watch for yourself below:
