"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
If he and Larkin both stay up most of the year, that's pretty persuasive proof that their choices were wise. I hope they do; good for them making the show on opening night.
EDIT: The Jets beat the Bruins handily, and Copp had a nice assist on their fifth goal. Nice start.
EDIT again: saw on Twitter from Jeffrey Weinstein that Copp's first point was at the end of last season, which I had forgotten or never knew. I edited the thread title to fix, and my apologies to COY if I am the source of their tweet that Weinstein corrected.
Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill says Dylan Larkin has made the team out of training camp. Wow.
Per Ansar Khan from MLive:
ST. LOUIS - As the preseason wraps up with tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Blues are hitting the road for a four-day team-building trip in Ann Arbor, MI.
The team will hold daily practices at the University of Michigan’s Yost Arena, but outside of that, the players will be free to relax and enjoy a short break before returning to St. Louis on Monday afternoon.
“It’s about being together and doing team activities,” said Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. “Having some team activities that we can just have fun with, along with some good stress-less practices up there, I think we’ll really enjoy it.”
Shattenkirk, who billeted with a family in Ann Arbor while representing the U.S. National Development Program, will watch the Wolverine’s ice hockey team on Sunday evening. His billet family’s son, Niko Porikos, wears No. 22 for the Wolverines.
But for Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock, the trip is about business, too, especially since Opening Night vs. Edmonton is just days away.
“I’m looking forward to putting in the work on the ice,” Hitchcock said. “We’ve practiced a lot of general stuff (in training camp), and now we can get detailed on specific things we need to work on. I’m looking forward to that.”
Stay tuned to stlouisblues.com and follow the Blues on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for coverage throughout the weekend of the team building trip in Ann Arbor.
Pretty interesting. The boards and ice plant were replaced.
This is actually the lowest Michigan has ever been ranked in a USCHO preseason poll. #11 was the previous low in 2013-14.
