Incidentally, since we only ever hear about CHL success stories, I will point out that in looking over the Fronts roster, there are more than a couple guys--Kelly Geoffrey, Jesse Brown, Matt Kang--that would have been better served taking college offers when they came their way.
Practice is getting underway for the Minnesota boy's high school hockey season. The Rochester Post-Bulletin's Faceoff blog started breaking down the teams in the Queen City of Minnesota.

The Blog That Yost Built's Tim Williams got interviewed in an article about Michigan recruit Jack Campbell.
