3 goals in 3 games, & other alumni updates

Just a few quick alumni updates:
  • After scoring his first goal of the season in the Hawks' 3-1 win over the Kings on Oct 27, JAKE DOWELL followed things up with a goal in each of his next two games, a 7-4 loss to the Oilers on Oct 29 and a 3-1 win over the Wild on Oct 30.
  • ANDY BOHMBACH scored his first professional goal (and added an assist) on Friday in the Toledo Walleyes' 3-2 win over Cincinnati. In 5 games, Bohmber is 1-3-4. Hope to see him up in Rockford soon.
  • Looks like MATT FORD is doing well so far this season with the AHL's Lake Erie Monsters. After 11 games, he's tied as their top goal-scorer with 4 goals, and he's 3rd on the team in points with 7 points. Ford has done well in the ECHL in the past, and it's nice to see him do well in the AHL. I hope his early success continues through the season.
  • Don't forget you can always find stats for Badgers in the NHL, AHL, ECHL, and Europe on Chuck's spreadsheet. The best part -- it includes links the the players' stats pages on the team websites.
  • JINELLE ZAUGG-SIERGIEJ was hired last month by Arrowhead High School as the girls head coach. Congratulations to Jinelle, and congratulations to Arrowhead! By the way, Jinelle also does motivational speaking and runs a summer hockey camp.
  • Congrats to JOE and SARAH PAVELSKI on the birth of their first child, Nathan Joseph. "Nathan, a play-making nine-pound, three-ounce pivot with tremendous offensive upside, will be available for the National Hockey League Entry Draft in 2028."
