    Aside from the two week roadie in February, seems like a pretty balanced schedule.

    Also starting to feel like a Thanksgiving tradition to play Tech.

    I had heard this a while ago, but since his name was omitted on the 17-18 roster in today's release I think we can safely say now that Jesse Jenks will not be back.

    John Mulally's name was also not on the list.

    Here is the release discussing our recruits for next year: http://alaskananooks.com/news/2017/5...s-of-2021.aspx

    I had heard that Woods may not be coming back for his redshirt senior season, but his name is on the list. We have a strong, veteran group of defensemen this year, not losing any from last year and the long awaited return of Kyle Froese. Which we will need with 3 goalies who have not played a game of division 1 hockey.

    Hate when that happens, even with a clear number one.

    Though when we got King & Reiter as both freshman it worked out well.
    At the end of the day, the Gov Cup is just a trophy, UAA senior Jordan Kwas said. Id rather be in the Final Five every time over winning the Gov Cup.

    Gootee family establishes scholarship endowment for Nanook Hockey.

    Welcomed news for Nanook Hockey and thanks to the Gootee family for supporting the Nanook Hockey program and community. Maybe next year at this time Mr. Parayko will gather all the loose change in his seat cushins and also fund a scholarship endowment.

    UAFAA's Hockey Chapter also donated $50,000 to fund an endowed scholarship. Coach is turning out to be quite the fundraiser.

    Is this new, or is it the fund that already provides $50,000 a year to the hockey program?

    From ADN:

    "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    Sweet. I wish UAA had alumni who were willing to donate. They are pretty stingy with their money.

    One thing Dallas has quietly done in the background is reunite the hockey alumni with the program. It's paid some dividends.

    Don't really follow major juniors much. Is the pay even remotely comparable to an NCAA D1 job?

    Comparable to the job he has now? Yes. Comparable to a top D1 program like NoDak/Minnesota? Not likely.

    Were a little behind the eight ball for time. It seems the most likely course of action (because of time and budget) would be to name Lance West as interim head coach. The problem with that (for Lance) is if we do eventually select a new head coach from outside then his days are probably numbered.

    Get Rob Proffett, he was always fun to watch dance on the bench. But what ever you do don't fire Bruce, with Butter Bear and Space Bear gone Bruce is top dog for everything........and I mean everything.....

    UAF made the kind of hockey history on October 10th 2015 that no team wants to claim the Nanooks became the first NCAA Division I victim of Arizona State.
