Very cool thread! I had no idea that there are so many NMU alumni currently playing professional hockey. I would say that this is a great testament to the quality of the NMU program. Thank you very much for the updated list, I will check from time to time to see if there are any further updates. I am wondering if anyone knows anything about chickasaw (http://www.chickasaw.net/) culture? I have been really interested in learning all I can, please let me know if you know of any good resources. Thank you.

Yikes. The AHL of the KHL?


List should be updated so far. Missing a lot of the guys headed to the ECHL, AHL, and those in Europe.

the Berlin Polar Bears are a team in Berlin, Germany playing in the D.E.L. or Deutsch Eishockey Liga (German Hockey League). It has traditionally been one of the top pro leagues outside North America. Former Cat Mark Beaufait had a long career over there.

Mike Santorelli is currently on IR with a shoulder injury while Mark Olver is still on the Avs roster due to being placed on the IR with a head injury. In regards to Olver nothing has been published in regards to what the head injury is. So as of opening weekend the Cats have no players on an active roster in the NHL.

Rough start to the season for Wildcat alumni. Along with both NHL'ers only staying on the rosters due to injuries, and only three in the AHL, Greger Hanson was released by the Florida Everblades today. Not looking good this season for alums.

Yep. Matt Siddall. Assistant Coach. Raise your hand if you saw that one coming.

Someone talked with his dad a month ago and he said Mark got hurt in practice, taking a skate to the head. I guess it was a pretty serious laceration, so Colorado is playing it safe.

Yikes! All that was listed was "head" for the injury, so I just assumed it was a concussion. (Once you get the first one, you're more easily susceptible to getting concussions again)

Oystie had 2 goals tonight in Portland's 5-3 win over Manchester. Also playing in the game was Ray Kaunisto for Manchester. He had 2 mins for Cross Checking and was pretty much a non factor. Oystie's two goals came on the Powerplay, which he looked really strong on.

That could have been the ultimate factor. The info I got was from a while ago (right about after it happened), and a concussion is seeming more likely since some sites have him listed as "Out Indefinitely"

Oh great. Hopefully the NMU alum didn't study too well and set the baseline for his concussion test too high...

Saw that happen in Chicago (AHL) with a Harvard hockey d-man last season. Set his baseline test too high and couldn't pass it for six weeks even though he was symptom free and cleared by the doctors to play.
