As far as I know, yes.

Shame too, he was seeing more ice time this year by playing as a center on the 4th line.

Rangers were good for two periods :D Eli is out. Looks like the next gathering of the Slaz clan at DU will be in 2017.That should be when Dan's son Ryan begins his Pio hockey career at DU.

The DU fans taunted Hull in the warmups, when he'd break stick after stick (sticks in those days were poorly made, and Hull's stick-speed was SICK.). I remember a big "Brett Who?" banner in the student section, too.

Hull was one of those players you watched every time he came on the ice. He had the quickest release I've ever seen in college hockey. Goalie equipment was much smaller and not as effective as today's stuff, and every goalie in the league feared Hull's shot.

Sounds like his dad, doesn't it?

Speaking with Baker today, he did not make the trip and will have an MRI tomorrow. He said Olson did make the trip, but is day-to-day and may not be available to play.

Well?? Do we have an answer. The one I gave you wasn't a very nice one and might have been exclusive only to my buddies and I. I might have the wrong announcer and I can't elaborate on this board!!

I haven't seen one. His name was Jim (forget his last name, now), but his nickname was "Hacksaw" and that was how everyone I knew referred to him. He had leg braces from childhood polio and one time got threatened by a former player, who's name he would mispronounce, who said that if it continued he would wait in the parking lot and hacksaw his leg braces off. He was the announcer at DU games for 25 or so years, from around the early 70s or mid 70s till about when Magness opened.

My dad (scorekeeper), Carl Kurth (former timekeeper and current home penalty box guy) and Hacksaw were the 3 guys who ran and did all the official stuff at the old barn. Hacksaw worked at a liquor store for his regular job and would bring in beer in his briefcase. They would pour their beers into Pepsi cups so as not to be noticed for drinking during the games (they self-imposed a 2 beer limit each for the games).

Just some trivial reminiscing.... :)

Was he the guy who always wore a cowboy hat?

I don't remember Hacksaw. I do remember that the goal judges back in the '70s were "Shorty" and George Congrave.

He was kind of a strange dude. I'm not exactly sure when the nickname took hold. Steve Souchiray (or however you spelled it :confused: ) was the PA who took over him. Was "Shorty" Ron Scholls (again, spelling)? No one forgets meeting George....

On Downing and a couple blocks south of Evans? Something like that...

Not sure, I always knew him just as "Shorty". He was only around the rink on game days. Steve Soucheray was one of the penalty box attendants when I was there. He was in the old single penalty box when the infamous BU/MN fight broke out in the NCAA semi-finals.

Jim Little. Little's Liquors.

Hold on!! It was "Dancing Don" as we called him due to his limp. We we had no concept in those days of being "correct". His name is Don and he worked for Jim Little at "Little's' Liquor" on the corner of Downing and Iliff. He wore a cowboy hat and was frankly kind of a pain in the ***. I knew it!! We (my brethren) called him "Dancing Don" which now I consider very mean and inappropriate, but we were young and times were different. Don, if you are reading this, I apologize.

Well, I'm off for Alaska early tomorrow morning, so if I don't see all of you in the score thread, someone continue the tradition:

Well, I conferred with Mrs Jimbo and she confirmed that there was a Jim and a Don who announced at DU, but was unsure of the exact lineage. Jimbo would have been the one to set this all straight. Sooooo much DU knowledge went away when he passed :( ....
