Geoffrion Says He's Fine, Reaches 100 Point Mark

Senior Captain Blake Geoffrion had a major scare in tonight's game when he took a dirty check from St. Cloud State goon Aaron Marvin to the head. Now, Wisconsin isn't the cleanest team in the league, that's for sure...but I have no patience for hits to the head and this was as blatant as it can get.

Luckily, Blake updated his twitter after the game to assure everyone that he is going to be all right. "Hey everyone I am doing just fine...just glad the guys got the win and glad for all the seniors!!"

In other news, Blake reached a HUGE career milestone tonight with his 100th career point in the 7-4 victory. Blake got to the milestone when he assisted on the first Wisconsin goal of the game, a Power Play goal by fellow senior Michael Davies.

The assist was Geoffrions 36th point of the season and his 33rd point in 23 league games. He currently leads the WCHA in scoring despite missing parts of two games and a full game due to head injuries. Geoffrions 1.43 points per game is heads and shoulders above anyone else in the league right now. I think it will be a long, three way discussion between Geoffrion, Brendan Smith, and Denver goalie Marc Cheverie for the WCHA Player of the Year.

Congratulations Blake
