MGoBlog visited the Michigan Soo. I'm guessing he won't be invited back.
Also, on Sunday, Lake Superior completed their 12 year contract where they played a home game against Michigan or Michigan State at Lake Superior. The contract kind of backfired, since Lake Superior was pretty good at the time they signed the contract, but was terrible for most of that period. It is interesting to see the fairly positive reaction to the contract from the LSSU folks, as opposed to say, the fans of a certain southern Minnesota school, who complained when their team played a home game much closer to home than LSSU did.
Hockey's Future profiled Jim O'Brien. O'Brien said he would be interested in moving back to defense next season.
The seedings are out for the Minnesota State High School tournament. The Gopher Puck Blog has the sectional seedings. The actual brackets are somewhere on the MSHSL website. I'll have more on this later in the week once we get to the final rounds of the section touraments.
The CC Hockey Blog takes some inventory of where Colorado College is right now.
RWD gets creative. This is what happens when Duluth is in last place.
David Backes scored twice against the Minnesota Wild yesterday, giving him four goals in his last three games, and moving him into the top 30 among rookie scoring. That makes 6 players who left WCHA teams last summer in the top 30 among rookie scores. Those players are Paul Statsny(#3), Travis Zajac(#8), Matt Carle(#9), Joe Pavelski(#12), Phil Kessel(#18), and David Backes(#27).
