Garrett Allen is 5-time Olympic Gold Medalist Speed Skater Bonnie Blair's nephew and the cousin of former CC player Scott Polaski.
If Garrett has the family "skating gene" he could be fun to watch.
Allen, Arnold, and Levin all have pretty good backgrounds even though they have been unknowns compared to Zajac, D. Mermis, and Q. Shore who all have a family connection with DU.

Seven players from Colorado on the team--is that a record?

Nope, DU has had at least 7 Colorado players since 2005/06. The most I found was 10 in 2005/06. In 2006/07 and 2011/12, DU had 8 players from Colorado.

That's just so great. And such a change from the old days. OLD PIO ANNECDOTE ALERT: In the very early days of UNO's drive to D-I (our station was angling to carry their games, and somebody I know quite well, ahem, was a candidate to do PBP) they had some sort of banquet. And I was seated at a table with (among others) a big UNO financial supporter. During the course of the evening DU came up. And he told me he had been a player until the new coach, Murray Armstrong came to town. Being from Omaha, his DU career ended abruptly, needless to say. Although he didn't seem to be carrying a grudge, I felt embarrassed with my face hanging out. Mostly, he just seemed to be making conversation. But it was still awkward.

My response was like Ralph Kramden when he was caught doing something stupid: "hamina, hamina, hamina." It probably wouldn't have been a good idea to suggest he probably skated like lava flowing uphill and shot like my grandmother and checked like Pee Wee Herman. I was definitely "flying solo."

19 players attended DU pro camp yesterday. Link below has some videos and interviews. Besides former DU players, a couple of CC guys were there, some other pros and Jay Meloff, the boyfriend of Jessica Ghawi (Redfield), who was killed in the Aurora theater shooting.

Day 2 of pro camp was held yesterday and the boys broke 2 panes of glass. Some of the current Pios joined the pros for a 60 minute scrimmage at the end of yesterday's session. Some good photos in the photo album.

That's great. Good luck to him. I guess he's stopped faking that knee injury.

Has anybody checked on Dmann lately?

I'm here, I'm here, not to worry!! Just been real busy on the boat. Changing hats now as the High School doors have opened for another season, (groan). This can only mean one thing though, that hockey season is not that far off anymore.

Go DU!!!!

Julie Robenhymer looking at potential Hobey candidates. Commenting on the group that would have been in the mix if they hadn't gone pro--Drew Shore and Jason Zucker.

But for this year...
Typically, the Hobey discussion is dominated by forwards that put up boat loads of points, but there's usually a defenseman or two that works their way into the conversation. This year that looks to be Joey LaLeggia - Sophomore, D, Denver, EDM. After a stellar freshman season in which he earned 38 points in 43 games from the blueline and earned Rookie of the Year honors, expectations are high for him in Denver and with few returning upperclassmen to carry the load, the Pioneers are counting on him to exceed them.
