Per DU Hockey Twitter: DU's exhibition game vs. Univ. of British Columbia on 10/6 will most likely be played at Pepsi Center.

*smacks forehead* In my recent little exegesis on where we ate in Denver, I forgot to mention Pat and Lucy's. In the middle of the block on University, across the street from the Border. Home made soup and pies everyday. You'd go in there for lunch and the pie would still be warm from the oven. IIRC, Murray used the joint for pre-game meals one season. Specialty was a $3 fillet, with soup AND salad and potato. Nothing fancy, but the soup was home made and the pies were warm. Yummy. Had way more meals in Pat and Lucy's than anyplace.

The suspense is over. INCH picked Josiah Didier for DU's entry in the A to Z list.
I think Ryder was grooming him to take over the "The Big Truck" role. :)

Hmmmm. "Most likely" at Pepsi.......I wouldn't be surprised if they forego the Pepsi Center for the Denver Coliseum. That would be a nice dress rehearsal for the Coliseum staff who will be working the 'Cuts games.... and maybe a nice marketing op for them too (if the building is available, and if the 'Cuts are available)

In the heat of the summer OKC City Council is thinking of hockey. No pressure Matt, but the state of hockey in Oklahoma depends on you.

According to Mike Chambers, Kyle Ostrow has signed with the Colorado Eagles.

Former DU captain Kyle Ostrow has signed with the Colorado Eagles of the ECHL, bringing the Canadian back to Colorado after playing his first year as a pro with the Chicago Express (ECHL) and Rochester Americans (AHL). Ostrow is an outstanding two-way player — with NHL-type wheels.

A week ago, the Eagles signed former DU co-captain and one-time NHLer Gabe Gauthier, who helpd the Pioneers win national titles in 2004 and 2005. In addition to the Ostrow announcement, the Eagles also said they have signed former Colorado College defenseman Arthur Bidwill.

Ostrow, DU’s captain in 2011-12, produced 31 points (11 goals) in 59 games with the Express last season, and played two games (zero points) with the Americans. He amassed 105 points (55 goals) in 158 career NCAA games. Ostrow’s younger brother, Shawn Ostrow, will be a senior for the Pioneers this season.

OK, it's August, it's time to ramp it up in the posting department. Let's get the whole gang out of hiding and start talking hockey. I'll get things started:

1- Who is going to be our leading scorer?
2- Who is going to be the Freshman who turns heads the most?
3- Will Makowski be back and be a total stud?
4- How will we deal with 3 top notch goalies?
5- Other?

3 top notch goalies? In Denver? :confused: OK, so I'm being a wiseguy. I guess have concerns about one of them being considered top notch.
Over the past couple years, I'm really starting to enjoy seeing the Sophomores turn the corner and become bonafide producers. It's more prevalent when there's a big-name Senior who graduates and moves on.... it's like these kids coming back for their 2nd year have almost been given sub-concious permission to come out of their shells and start throwing their weight around, whereas in their Freshman year, they maybe were timid, and were intimidated by the upper classmen and learning all about the college game. So I say...... keep your eyes on Doremus, Mayfield, LaLeggia...... I think those 3 are going to explode.

Ty Loney may be the guy to come on hot. And he's so cute with his rosy cheeks.
With Drew gone, Nick may come into his own this year. Last year he seemed "snakebit" when it came to scoring goals. We will need him to be a top line center.

Now if Shawn Ostrow and Chris Knolton can ramp up their game like they did last year, they could bring a nice scoring punch.

(Freshman Dakota Mermis may be the scoring D-man ala LaLeggia. Californian Gabe Levin (who of course will wear #9) played in the NAHL, but as I recall was a scoring machine. He's 5'8" so he must be fast or "slick" like Luke Salazar. Now if Levin can live up to previous #9s-Gauthier, Rakhshani, Beau Bennett-could live with that or maybe just be another Goal Czar without the sopohomore slump.
And Shore the Third played well in the U18 World Championships.
Can't forget Nolan Zajac he had 39- points from the blueline and he does have a good pedigree
Forwards Allen and Arnold--don't really know much about them.

4- How will we deal with 3 top notch goalies?
5- Other?

1- The smart money would be placed on Nick Shore...however LaLeggia may just do it since he has just an awesome skill set (probably the best on the team)
2- I would say Dakota Mermis or Nolan Zajac will be the ones, with QShore doing some nice things as well
3- I certainly hope Makowski picks up where he left off. If he does, I foresee he being a top three scorer on the team along with NShore and Leggs...kinda weird that it is a distinct possibility we have 2 d-men in our top 3 scorers but I really do see it, with Ty Loney being a dark horse in the race
4- I see Big Sam as being the man, he is soooooo good (70-- or whatever-- saves against UMD in order to further our season needs no explanation) with Olki being pretty darn good as well leaves me feeling good for our between-the-pipes skill...Adam Murray? Meh...he is an absolutely great 3rd goalie but I don't see him as a "stud" or "top notch", though he is definitely way more capable than a regular 3rd-stringer.
5-Other?...Well, just "LET'S GO DU!!!!!"
