Friday Afternoon Alumni Catch-up

There have been a few interesting alumni items that I we haven't post yet:
  • Joe Pavelski is featured as USA Hockey Magazine's Next American Star. Really nice article.
  • Mike Eaves and Ryan Suter are featured in USA Hockey Magazine's look back at the 2004 World Junior Championships in which the US took home Gold. Mike Eaves, of course, was the head coach. In addition to Ryan Suter, Badgers Jake Dowell and Jeff Likens also played for Team USA.
  • Melissa Wade has some pictures of Cody Goloubef with Team Canada after winning the Gold at this year's WJC. Thanks for sharing, Melissa! (Ok, it's not alumni, but I gotta put it somewhere.)
  • Bernd Bruckler has been listed as a player to watch in the Championship Hockey League (CHL). Brucker plays for the Espoo Blues of SM-liiga, the top Finnish league. The CHL, which includes the top European teams, is a new league this year that replaces the IIHF European Champions Cup. (Props to EODS for pointing this out.)

  • Despite getting under 9 minutes of ice time, Adam Burish was named the #1 Star of the Game the Hawks 6-0 victory over the Coyotes on Tuesday. Burish had 1 goal and 1 assist. (Thanks again, EODS).
