WCHA/AHA Invitational

So, had this idea in my head, wonder if anyone else has thought about it and if it would fly. How about a WCHA/AHA Challenge Invitational between the old CHA teams? BSU, UAH, Bobby Mo and Niagara in a set schedule (ie, not bracketed). BSU vs Bobby Mo and UAH vs Niagara on day one and then BSU vs Nia...

Re: Oakland University may add D1 Men's and Women's Hockey

Remember Henry Boucha--Detroit Red Wings ? He was a Warroad Warrior first, and I believe he still lives there. I never saw him play (I was born during his NHL Career), but have heard stories. One of the best is that in High School, he very seldom left the ice. He would play his forward position and...

Re: Oakland University may add D1 Men's and Women's Hockey

I don't see it getting off the ground. Wayne State gave it a run in the CHA with men's and women's hockey in the Detroit Metro area and ended up folding.

In the Detroit area, it seems if you aren't the pros, Michigan or Michigan State, you don't matter.

Re: NU Hockey Coach----Search and Hiring

le wrote:I think the Michigan job is still open which is a HUGE hire but beyond that I think the NU job is the only vacancy. My guess is CC will eventually name the interim coach as head coach.
Denver could be opening up as it sounds like Jim Montgomery is in the running for the Florida Panthers' NHL gig.

Re: Frozen 4 in Buffalo--2019

You don't have to be a hockey school or even a hockey league to host the Frozen Four. Navy hosted the 2009 Frozen Four in D.C.

All you have to do is be willing to do the work for the NCAA and get them the $$$ that they demand.

Re: NU Hockey Coach----Search and Hiring

I haven't heard anything. There just isn't a lot of chatter/rumors going on with any of the hires, everyone seems to be playing it close to the vest.

The biggest discussion is whether or not Mel Pearson will leave Michigan Tech for Michigan.......

Re: The saga continues , CC defeats NU in Buffalo

Millsy: Good to hear from you, hope all is well in frozen Minny. Injuries occur on every team but as New Englander mentioned NU's bout with this "bug" has been problematic for several years. Maybe Millsy can chime in here. I just don't recall any college team in recent memory at the D1 le...
