Catching Up Catch-All

I've been AWOL for several days -- thanks to the boys for keeping things going so nicely here! -- so I have a handful of items that haven't gotten around to posting.
  • The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram has a nice article on recent commit Jefferson Dahl.

  • The Eau Claire WQOW Sports blog had a post earlier last month that discussed Jefferson Dahl and ECM teammates David Donnellan and Seth Soley. (Soley bypassed his senior season to play in the USHL, and he'll be going to Michigan Tech next year). The post also mentioned Badger and former Old Abe Jake Dowell, who's going to do "everything he can to earn a more permanent spot on the Blackhawks' roster".

  • Todd has a nice article about recent commit Gavin Hartzog, and I don't believe we've posted it here yet. (I think we posted the IceHouse blog post but not the TCT article. If we did post it already, I apologize for the duplication.)

  • Thanks to DPlaya for spotting this article about the Nashville Predators. The end of the article mentions Blake Geoffrion's improvement last season and says they anticipate him "playing another year or two at Wisconsin".

  • has a really nice feature interview with equipment manager Steve Castelletti.

  • And speaking of equipment managers, Todd is reporting today that Rob Malnory has won the WCHA Distinguished Service Award. Congratulations, Rob!
