A few odds & ends

  • Mark Johnson has an interesting Q & A in the Pioneer Press. (The article is oddly formatted, but the answers are interesting. Props to brookyone on uscho for the link.)
  • The WCHA has a brief official announcement about the Sept. 25 match-up between the WCHA Women's All-Star Team and the US Women's National Team.
  • DPlaya has this weekend's TW Major schedule, as well as some roster information:
    Team Wisconsin Major is slated to take to the ice this weekend for the first time. They will be playing at Ice Hawk Arena in Stevens Point, and here's the schedule:

    Saturday Sept 5
    10:00am Team Wisconsin vs Duluth Wings
    12:00pm Milwaukee Jr Admirals vs Minnesota Blades

    6:00pm Team Wisconsin vs Minnesota Blades
    8:00pm Duluth Wings vs Milwaukee Jr Admirals

    Sunday Sept 6
    9:00am Duluth vs Minnesota Blades
    11:00am Team Wisconsin vs Milwaukee Jr Admirals

    As for the team currently carrying three goaltenders it sounds like Tony Kujava from Notre Dame Academy is safely on the roster while Austin Schmid of Verona and David Chapin from Waukesha Catholic Memorial will continue to battle for the final spot before the Elite League begins.

    I have also heard that another forward is going to be added to the roster, and several players will be "auditioning" with the team during their games prior to the start of the Elite League.
