All time DU great Keith Magnuson would have celebrated his 71st birthday April 27 th. Sometime in April I came across, Keith Magnuson: The Inspiring Life and Times of a Beloved Blackhawk on Google Books. Here's the link which I'm sure is too long, https://books.google.com/books?id=mb...AYF1zRKEQRK0k&
GO DU !!!

North Dakota Hockey:
Somehow this feels like old news to me? Not sure why.. as an opposing fan, I didn't like the guy much but that could be my bias. So...bringing back Gwoz? ;-) Heard he's got some good HS connections. At least he didn't burn a bridge when he got let go by DU unlike some prominent former UMD womens coach. His enemies still in power at DU?
I wanna go fast!
I wonder if Steve Miller sold his house yet...
Well done Mr. Zucker.
Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.
Nice! Seamless transition from Borgstrom and Terry to Benn and Seguin! LOL!
Congrats Monty...you earned and deserved this!!!
Bulletin from (former) Dallas (residents): just renewed our DU season tickets. Complete coverage in the Times Herald later.

Montgomery press conference: https://www.denverpioneers.com/sports...050418aaa.html
"Pioneer for life."
GO DU !!!
The next few weeks will tell who the next head coach will be. Will the current staff stay on? (They did when Gwoz left, but all except Tanzer were gone the next season)
LetsGoDU.com has already been the site of much discussion before the official announcement with around 70 comments.
The next question, how many recruits will change their minds?

Eero Teravainen (D) 3-8-99 5'11" 174 Lincoln Stars (USHL)
When Monty took over there were 5 or 6 commits/recruits who took another path. Whether their choice or Monty's?? Had any signed a NLI?? Were any released from a NLI?? Would DU release a recruit from a NLI??
Looking back here are a few who took another path:
Tyler Pham--Army--Hard to turn down an appointment to West Point
Gage Ausmus-North Dakota--he decommitted quickly
Cody dePourq-Bentley the next year
Sebastian Fuchs--return to Sweden
(Monty brought in the likes of Marcinew, Janssen, Romig to fill the holes)
And then there was Mike Szmatula who wanted to come to play for Monty at DU, but Northeastern wouldn't release from his NLI. He eventually transferred to Minnesota.
**Verbal commitments/Gentlemen's Agreement not to recruit is going the way of the dodo.
GO DU !!!
MagnessMayhem has some insights into a new head coach.
BTW Will Butcher, wearing #4, had a goal and assist in today's victory over Denmark at the IIHF Worlds

In looking at Chris Heisenberg's 2018 list - he has lined through Jacson Alexander, Erik Middendorf, Adam Goodsir, and Ben Brar.
Goodsir is now with Michigan State (April 26): Alexander has been playing in the WHL for a while; Miidendorf to CC (February 7th); Not sure about Brar. So maybe those were all re-Monty leaving?
Don't think any of these could be related to Monty's departure. Related more to verbal commits are not worth the paper they are written on.
