    SALMON KINGS 5, GRIZZLIES 4: At the E Center, despite two game-tying goals by Kinasewich in the third period, Utah took a tough loss against Victoria. Jake Gannon and Tony Romano scored early in the game to give the Grizzlies leads in the first and second periods.

    Lake Erie’s Darren Haydar, Brian Willsie and Marty Sertich each scored a goal and assist for the hometown Monsters who have now won five of their last six. T.J. Hensick assisted on two goals and fifth-year pro Tyler Weiman garnered his 12th win of the season with a 14-save effort between the pipes.

  • Emptying the notebook: Civitarese breaks out

    Wed, December 30, 2009 by admin with no comments

    Sophomore forward David Civitarese had a big tournament for Colorado College (12-5-3) in Estero, Fla.

    A night after recording two assists (his first points of the season), he scored his first career goal to tie Wednesday’s game at 1-1.

    “It was nice to get those (assists),” Civitarese said. “Those were more good jobs by the guys to put those in.”

    Although Civitarese was scoreless headed into Wednesday’s game, his linemates Stephen Schultz (19 points) and Mike Testwuide (15) had combined for 34  points.

    “Both my wings are pretty potent offensive guys,” he said. “It was nice to chip in (three points)because the coaches have been patient and reward them for that.”

  • Notebook: Former CC player leads Princeton program

    Wed, December 30, 2009 by admin with no comments

    Princeton’s Guy Gadowsky is a well-traveled coach, even by hockey standards.

    But the Colorado College alumnus (1989) and former captain can trace his biggest steps forward into an eventual coaching career to his tenure (1986-89) in Colorado Springs.

    “You pick up things everywhere you go,” the economics graduate said Tuesday in Estero, Fla.“I was very lucky to have a year playing for Brad Buetow. My first captain was Danny Brennan (1982-86) which was tremendous. If someone ever tells me I’m as good a person as Danny, I’d be very proud.”

    He can be proud of what he’s done as a coach.

    He certainly has shown the ability to turn programs around. He inherited an Alaska-Fairbanks team that had not won 14 games in a season into a 22-win team in 2001-02. Another winning season led him to Princeton, which had won a total of eight games over the previous two seasons.

    Three years later, Princeton has two straight ECAC championship appearances, and a school record 22 wins in 2008-09, when the program garnered its first NCAA Tournament berth.

    Princeton(5-8-2 after beating No. 4 Cornell Wednesday) has struggled because of four major injuries but can point to a road win over then-No. 9 UMass-Lowell Dec. 12 to show much progress has been made.

    “There’s a lot of pride in the program now,” Gadowsky said.

  • No home holiday tournament in immediate future

    Wed, December 30, 2009 by admin with no comments

    ESTERO, Fla. — While the thought of Colorado College hosting its own hockey tournament would be appealing to most fans, it remains unfeasible under budget constraints, athletic director Ken Ralph said Wednesday.

    “It’s simple economics,” he said. “I can bring a good team like Northeastern in for two games with a $17,000 guarantee. If you host a tournament, it costs three times as much.”

    Hosting two games over two days would double game-day expenses as well, he added.

    “If we can find a deep-pockets sponsor, we could look into it,” Ralph added. “There’s been some discussion but the holiday hockey tournament field is pretty saturated right now. We’ve have a hard time putting a good tournament together.”

    The Florida College Classic is sponsored by the ECHL’s Florida Everglades, which offer free tickets to the two-day tournament as part of their season-ticket package. That explains the announced attendance of 6,315 when about 3,500 were on hand.

    CC has not hosted its own tournament since at least the World Arena opening, Ralph said. CC’s next regular-season tournament is in Fairbanks in Oct. 2010.

    Tigers coach Scott Owens said he likes the road tournaments for use as a team-bonding trip. The entire team made the trip to Florida this week.
