mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
Jacob Trouba scored to help USA defeat defending champion Russia 8-3 today to advance to the seminfinals of the IIHF World Championship. Guess who played in net for the US: John Gibson. If only...
Other Michigan players of note on the US roster: Matt Hunwick, David Moss, and Aaron Palushaj. Hunwick and Moss have been two of the better players for USA. Moss is playing on the 1st line with Paul Stasny, and Hunwick is in the 2nd D pair with Erik Johnson.
Team USA will play Switzerland on Saturday for the opportunity to advance to the Gold Medal Game for the 1st time since 1960.
Two incoming U of M hockey players have been drafted so far today with goalie John Gibson going in the 2nd round to Anaheim and defensemen Brennan Serville going in the 3rd round to Winnipeg.
This is just speculation on my part but I think Serville going to WInnipeg is good news because they are pretty stacked with young defensemen so they might be less likely to encourage him to leave college early.
