    Thorimbert vs UND road unisColorado College’s Wednesday departure helped smooth out any travel wrinkles en route to Grand Forks, N.D. where the team put together a short but high-energy morning skate Friday at Ralph Engelstad Arena.

    That skate hinted at some considerable line changes which were confirmed later Saturday.

    For what it’s worth, I like the pairing of playmakers like Alexander Krushelnyski and center Cody Bradley with Luc Gerdes on one line. Scott Wamsganz gives the Tigers a big body along the boards to work with center Sam Rothstein and right wing Alex Roos.

    The line with seniors Archie Skalbeck and Jeff Collett and junior Charlie Taft is a defensively sound veteran line that can contribute offensively. Sophomore Hunter Fejes and freshmen Christian Heil and Zach Aman is another defensive group.

    Here are the lines:

    Colorado College

  • Friday reading: CC’s focus, NCHC previews

    Fri, February 28, 2014 by Joe Paisley with no comments

    Heil goldsCC hopes to avoid a letdown after last weekend’s emotional sweep of rival Denver.

    “The kids stayed positive and worked hard and it paid off,” CC assistant Joe Bonnett said. “There is confidence now and a little positive momentum. We did stress on Monday that we have to maintain our focus and energy. It will be interesting how the kids react to that.”

    Here is a feature on Archie Skalbeck and how his recent surge has coincided with the improvement of others on the Tigers.

    Nebraska-Omaha hopes its team identity is associated with grit. The UNO seniors may be playing their last games in Omaha this weekend.

    Defenseman Michael King and wing Matt Hansen all took extra time practicing following the morning skate, suggesting they will be health scratches tonight. Forwards Zach Aman (healthy), Jordan DiGiando (lower body), Hunter Fejes (lower body) and Peter Maric (upper body) stayed behind in Colorado Springs.

    St. Cloud State goalie Ryan Faragher is profiled by the SC Times. He is also a candidate for the Mike Richter Award as D1′s best goaltender. They host North Dakota in a series likely to determine ownership of the regular-season title and the Penrose Cup.

    Sixth-place Minnesota-Duluth hopes to get back on track this weekend against Miami in Oxford, Ohio.

    Fourth-place Western Michigan hopes to keep home ice in the playoffs at the expense of fifth-place Denver in Kalamazoo this weekend.

    Heil goldsThe Tigers changed up their fourth line with junior center Jordan DiGiando unavailable due to illness. Freshman Christian Heil will get his first playing time as a college center with junior Scott Wamsganz playing his first at right wing.

    Hunter Fejes (lower body injury), Matt Hansen (suspension), Peter Maric and Zach Aman, both upper body are unavailable as well.

     ”Archie is a center but we didn’t want to change up that line (Skalbeck-Collett-Hanson),” CC coach Scott Owens said. “We are playing every forward available. Heil played center a good bit in juniors.”

    For Denver, Joey LaLeggia is out with an upper-body injury while Ty Loney is ill, making him a game-time decision.
