This USCHO column does a good job explaining how the emergence of Penn State as a strong program could help expansion with Nebraska-Lincoln as a likely spot. The Nittany Lions visit Air Force this weekend.
PSU coach Guy Gadowsky said he would love to schedule a series at Colorado College, where he graduated in 1989 after serving as captain.
“We’re talking several years out now with the way scheduling works but I would be very interested in coming out to Colorado Springs to play CC,” he said. “I am very proud to watch what coach (Scott) Owens and his staff have done over the years. The community really supports the program. I am a very proud alum.”
The Air Force trip is his first in Colorado Springs since leading Alaska-Fairbanks against CC. He also took on the Colorado Gold Kings when he was with the Fresno Falcons of the old WCHL.
“I have a lot of good friends there I am looking forward to seeing,” he said.
Miami is the team of the week according to College Hockey News.
