    Yep. And Peluso is a basket case these days. So many concussions from the fighting back then.

    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.

    Re: Your School's Alums in the Stanley Cup Playoffs

    15 Badger alums on the Cup, plus, of course, Badger Bob Johnson.

    The first was (now retired Sharks VP) goalie Wayne Thomas in '73 with the Habs.
    First multi-Cup winner was Brian Engblom ('77-'79) also with the Habs.
    Last was Justin Schultz with the Penguins.

The early NCAA Ice Hockey Rules and Official Ice Hockey Guides from the period have many photos of both college and high school teams, which I as far as I can determine are from the previous season. The 1929-30 guide has the Eveleth High School team photo with Mike Karakas front and center (and team captain according to the caption) and the 1930-31 guide has photos of both the Eveleth Junior College and High School teams, but he is not in either photo. Based on the photos and other information I have found it appears highly unlikely he played for the Eveleth Junior College team, but instead played for the Rangers and then the Chicago Shamrocks.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    It appears that Thomas's name was not engraved on the Cup nor was Engblom's in 1977.

    Huh? Oh, wait... I understand -->It's the old MN reading comprehension problem again.

    See, it says alums plus Badger Bob. That "plus" indicates to normal people that the second thing isn't included in the first.

    Good catch. It's from a list that upon further review is "members of Stanley Cup winning teams" which as it turns out isn't the same as having your name on the Cup. Looking in to it further it seems around the fringes, getting your name on the Cup could be a little arbitrary. Thomas didn't play in the playoffs, (unsurprisingly, Ken Dryden started every game) and was left off. Oddly, Engblom DID play in the playoffs in '77, but was also left off.

    Current rules (clubs submit a list) would no doubt have had both of them on. Davis Drewiske was with the Kings all year but only appeared in 9 games. He's on the Cup.

    So--> 14 Badgers, PLUS Badger Bob. Brian Engblom is the first in '78.

    Kuraly, Wingels - Boston
    Martinez - LA
    Belpedio - Minnesota
    Coleman, Greene, NJ,
    R Smith - Las Vegas
    Roslovic - Winnepeg

    John Tortorella. He was a coach though.

    For players it is Dustin Penner, I believe. He is on there twice, with two different teams(Ducks and Kings).
