PSU's Andrew Sturtz Suspended one Game

The Big Ten has suspended PSU's Andrew Sturtz one-game for this nasty hit this on Michigan Wolverine forward Tyler Motte (video above).For his efforts, Sturtz was given a five-minute major penalty for interference and a two-minute minor for roughing.  Sturtz hit Motte long after the puck was gone. (box score).First, I believe the Big Ten blew it by not giving Sturtz a longer suspension...

SME Inc. it Is

The University of North Dakota has picked SME Inc. to design the Fighting Hawks Logo. SME Inc. is a company out of New York City. According to SEM's web page, they've worked with the Minnesota Wild.Personally, I don't care who designs the Fighting Hawks logo. That being said, this very crucial time in the nickname transition. I am concerned about the Fighting Hawks logo and what...

NHL Throws Book at Dennis Wideman

The NHL has thrown the book at Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman. Seriously, Wideman was given a 20-game suspension for running over NHL linesman Don Henderson. Wideman said this of the hit on Henderson. "At the last second, I looked up and saw [Henderson] and couldn't avoid it, Wideman said. "I went up to Donnie and apologized to him on the ice," he said after the game. ...

Beanpot 2016: BU no Goal (Video)

The on-ice official's call was a good goal. After further video review, the play was reversed. No goal! I think the Hockey East officials should be applauded for their efforts today. They got the calls right. Of course, some of the teams fans might not agree. O'Regan tried to push the puck over the line with his hand twice. Would have been tipped in by an NU stick, but never crossed...

Baughman's goal would give the Crimson a 2-1 lead.Once again, there was a long review, but it appears...

College Hockey in MSG

As reported by USCHO in December, the Big Ten Hockey conference will be playing games at Madison Square Garden. I know, I know, a funny comment popped in my head, but I will save it for later. Last Saturday, Penn State and Michigan played in front of 13,479 fans. Next December during the 2016-17 season, North Dakota and Boston College will play at Madison Square Garden. I've talked...

(Video) BSU's Billett knees SCSU's Robby Jackson Share

Bemidji State University defenseman Dan Billett was assessed a five-minute major for this knee-on-knee hit on St. Cloud State forward Robby Jackson. It will be interesting to see if the WCHA suspends Billett for a game or two. Remember, it's the WCHA and they're not known for a lot of suspensions.

UND Beats WMU 2-1 (Video)

Imagine playing without three of your top six forwards. Tonight, that's exactly what happened. UND swept Western Michigan minus Chris Wilkie, Drake Caggiula and Nick Schmaltz. With the win, UND improves to (22-3-3, 13-2-1 NCHC).I would say, look at it this way, there was a lot of points missing from the lineup. UND bore down and got the much-needed sweep to propel to the top of the...

WMU No Goal

WMU no goal pic.twitter.com/rYqdNAiMXI — James Lambert (@rivermen123) January 30, 2016Tonight, the Western Michigan Broncos were convinced that they had scored a goal and requested that the on-ice officials review the play. Fair enough, that happens.Moving right along, the on-ice officials reviewed the play in question and spent something like 7-8 minutes reviewing a play that...

Dennis Wideman Suspended for Cross-Checking Linesman

I don't know if I have ever seen anything like this before. After being check hard by Predators forward Miikka Salomaki, Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman cross-checked linesman Don Henderson on the way to the Flames bench.For his puzzling efforts, Wideman has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing. Your guess is as good as mine how long of a suspension he will get...

Former Fighting Sioux All-American Jonathan Toews is sick and will skip the NHL's All-Star game. Because he's not playing in the All-Star game, Toews has been suspended one game by the NHL and won't get to play in the Blackhawks first game after the All-Star break. Personally, I think this is a horrible rule. The man is sick, he can't play.  Chris Hine, Chicago Tribune -- Jonathan...

Grand Forks Herald: 3 firms make cut to present UND logo proposals

When I read this, the first thing that pops out, none of these companies are from North Dakota or Grand Forks. I guess that's not important. There was a company from Grand Forks, Ad Monkeys Inc., that originally applied to be part of the process, but they didn't make the cut. The three companies that made the cut are Phoenix Design Works Maplewood, New Jersey, SME Inc. Wilmington...

Its Crunch Time, Seven Weeks to Go

There are seven weeks to go before the NCAA Division I Hockey tournament starts. Looking at this week's Bracketology post by Jayson Moy, UND is going to Cinci. Most UND fans that I have talked to would like to see UND in Minneapolis. For some reason, Moy wants to keep putting UND in Cincinnati. I think that's going to be an empty regional. This week’s brackets East Regional (Albany...

Donald Bruce Beard: UND will move on with nickname

Wow. This letter to the editor was in the Inform.com today. The letter is from Donald Bruce Beard, who wrote a letter earlier this winter about the nickname issue. Funny, I believe he's one of the few to bring up the new REA and not winning any titles. Unfortunately, die-hard supporters of UND’s previous nickname boo when their Fighting Hawks are announced at hockey games, behavior...

(Video) Wayne Simmonds Goal; Flyers Were Offsides

Even in the National Hockey League, where the on-ice officials are trained professional, they still blow calls, too.Tonight, the linemen in the Boston Bruins Philadephia Flyers game, the linesmen missed a call. If you look at the video, you will see that Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds was offside. I watched the video 10 times and I agree with Jack Edwards, this was offside. Simmonds...

College Hockey: Goals per Game by Conference

Recently, there's been a common theme beginning to emerge in college hockey. The teams in the WCHA aren't scoring very many goals. Some of this might be due to the way the games are being called by the on-ice officials. The WCHA officials are letting the obstruction go.  I have been following some of the beat writers and fans in the WCHA, and they aren't happy. Stats are from January...

(Video Highlights) UND vs. C.C. (1/23/2016)

Here are all six goals that were scored tonight. I also included the major penalty. I think the player from Colorado College embellished the hit. I also thought it was a shoulder-to-shoulder hit. Again, I would like to see another angle of this hit, just to make sure.It's was a good weekend hockey for the most part. I thought Friday's game added an element we don't see very often...
