HansenYou have until June 28 to vote on the name of the new Minnesota college hockey tournament.

NCHC foe Western Michigan announced its incoming freshman class (10 players), which includes a former Air Force commit and does not include Paul Stoykewych, younger brother of CC’s Peter.

A five-year, $150,000 annual contract for new Alaska-Anchorage coach Matt Thomas is loaded with incentives.

The Seawolves assistant who was doing all the offseason work (scheduling travel, freshman workouts, etc.) solo is retained by Thomas.

That move and a decent length to the contract points to better times in Anchorage according to beat writer Doyle Woody.

The new online video streaming plan for the WCHA looks to be a good fit.

The NAHL has had a big year generating college commitments.

A Mandi Schwartz charity benefited greatly from a recent golf tournament  in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
