Donny Puck will still be a source for Gopher Hockey coverage, but my Examiner pieces will be more broad. Check out both sites as the summer moves along for the latest league news.
My WCHA Examiner homepage is linked here; my Twins Examiner page is here.
We'll try to add some post-draft coverage as the week progresses. DP will focus on the Gophers and those with Minnesota ties, while Examiner will span the entire WCHA.
Quick Gopher Hockey/WCHA hits:
- As you probably read, Nebraska-Omaha and Bemidji State were formally admitted into the WCHA starting in 2010-11. My Examiner piece has my take on this, but the short answer is that this is a good move.
- Mike Hastings resigned as Gopher assistant coach last week to return to UNO as Dean Blais's top assistant - and eventual successor. Grant Potulny will be in the mix to replace Hastings.
- Here are the recruits for the U of M for the next two seasons.
