    Excellent weekend for the PIOS! The team made very effective adjustments between Friday and Saturday night. Puck management (especially breakout) was the best I've seen for a while. Defense is improving--there were two breakdowns last night that resulted in the two amazing goals by Jones. The pace of last night's game was really fun to watch and what pretty serious of passes for the Luko's game winner! We're pretty much locked in as a two seed now and pulling for PSU this afternoon! Getting the overall 5th spot would be a plus.

    Denver is very likely going to Fargo along with ASU and SCSU.

    As for this weekend, very typical series for UND this season. They played well, but we just lack that dynamic scoring line / power play to make DU pay.

    As for my take on DU, they have some of the same struggles as North Dakota (noted above), which could hurt them come tourney time. However, they play a strong defensive game and it will be difficult for even high octane teams to score a bunch of goals. I think DU will smoke ASU, if that is the matchup, but will likely need some puck luck to knock off any of the #1 seeds.

    Anyway, good luck to Denver next weekend, and represent the NCHC well in the National Tournament.

    Looks like DU has scored blue chipper! His name is Mathew Savoie. He is being compared to Johnny Gaudreau!, I don't have any more info than that. Hopefully we will find out more soon!

    He’s really young, and his older brother is also verbally committed to DU. I’ll believe it when he signs an NLI in a couple years...I think he’s just upset that he wasn’t classified as “exceptional”, and thus can’t start his MJ career a year early. Time will tell.

    Another young verbal, Camron VanSickle, committed this week as well, out of Alaska.

    5 star recruit per NZ, which is pretty rare:

    Interesting that with just two games left the Pios could end up as high as 4th and as low as 11th. Here's hoping for two big W's!

    I heard on NHL radio on sirius that Scouts have said that Savoie is better than Shane Wright, who just got "Exceptional Status." I think 6 guys have gotten exceptional status to join the CHL early - and 3 are John Tavares, Aaron Ekblad and Connor McDavid.

    Not sure if he'll make it all the way to Magness, but here is a good article about him.

    Three years is probably far to long to hope he'll wait to play at DU. It's most likely an announcement to threaten the WHL with the idea that if he can't come early he won't come at all...

    But If I'm Denver I'm looking real hard into accelerating him and seeing if he'd be willing to wait two seasons and come with his brother in 2020-21. Another DU recruit, Matt Benning plays in the same youth program as both Savoies and it appears Benning may play with Sherwood Park this season (where Carter Savoie plays and perhaps Matt)...

    A year in the AJHL (which he'd have to do anyway if he can't play in the W) and then to the NCAA doesn't seem unreasonable, if he can he make the coursework work...

    So it looks like Fargo is a lock. Woden and Moy both predicting it will be vs OSU. Straight up pure integrity and rematch from last year's regional final.

    That’s the chalk. Wouldn’t be surprised to see them switch OSU with ASU to try to get more buckeye fans in Allentown. Either way, bring it!

    Time to break the NCAA Regional Curse of Steve "Killer" Miller.
    He had DU's number in 2015 and 2018 Regional Finals.



    Break the curse
    Bust the Buckeyes!
    GO DU !!!

    Since 2/15/19:
    DU has played 13 games 7-5*-1**
    OSU has played 7 games 1-5-1** (had a bye in 1st round of playoffs, lost in playoff semis, did not play last weekend)

    * 2 to cc 2 to UMD and 1 Miami (SOG 47-21 DU)
    ** 3 x 3 conference win

    Buckeyes may be well rested, but as rusty as they were for Penn State. Pios need to score early and often!
