BACK ON TRACK HUSKIES SWEEP TIGERS 5-1

St. Cloud, MN – After getting swept by #1 Denver last weekend, the Huskies needed to get back on track and they did so completing a home series sweep of the Colorado College Tigers at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center on Saturday. However, it was a much more difficult win relying on an explosion of four goals in the third period to put the dagger into the Tigers. Easton Brodzinski, Judd Peterson and Patrick Newell all went 1-1-2 and Jeff Smith stopped 22/23 shots on goal as the Huskies improved their record to 9-2-0 overall and 4-2-0 NCHC.

The Huskies scored first in the contest with a power play goal by Jacob Benson (Eyssimont | Schuldt), his 5th of the season at 10:17. Benson one-timed a shot from the left side of the goal past CC’s Leclerc for a 1-0 SCSU lead. A relief to the Huskies was having some success on the power play that was 1/14 in the last three games. That was the extent of the scoring in period one as the teams traded eight shots on goal. As expected, the Tigers came out determined and played perhaps their best period of the weekend. Despite outshooting the Tigers 15 to 9 in period two it remained a one-goal game heading into period three.

With the Tigers Kade Kehoe whistled for tripping, Easton Brodzinski (N Poehling | Ahcan) scored his second goal of the weekend and game-winner at 2:45. Ahcan made a nifty spin-o-rama move and then dished the puck to Poehling who found Brodzinski in front of the net to sweep it in for a 2-0 SCSU lead. 33 seconds later, first-year defenseman, Lucas Jaycox (Peterson | Newell) scored his first collegiate goal on a blast from the point. Peterson steered the puck to Jaycox who steamed a shot past Leclerc for a 3-0 lead. The Tigers did respond with a power play goal of their own at 6:30 of the period. Mason Bergh scored on a beauty of a shot from outside the right circle that beat Smith stick side high to narrow the score to 4-1. But, the Huskies added another goal – their third power play tally of the game at 8:02.  Some how Patrick Newell (Brodzinski | Poehling)  was able to fork the puck past a prone Alec Leclerc in heavy traffic for the Huskies fourth goal of the contest. SCSU closed out the scoring with an empty net goal by Judd Peterson (Fitzgerald) to finally get the monkey off his back with his first goal of the season.

In an overall impressive team effort by the Huskies, they outshot the Tigers 39 to 23 and most importantly got their power play back on track having success on 3 of 7 opportunities. Colorado College converted 1/5 opportunities on the man-advantage. Alex Leclerc stopped 34 of 38 shots on goal in a losing effort while SCSU’s Jeff Smith turned aside 22/23 shots on goal to improve his record to 6-1-0.

HUSKIES DOMINATE IN 6-1 WIN OVER COLORADO COLLEGE

St. Cloud, MN – A week after a frustrating series being swept by Denver, the Huskies returned home to mount a dominant effort over first-place Colorado College by a 6-1 score.  The Huskies scored three times in period one, outshot the Tigers 46-22 and pretty much had their way with a CC team that has been playing some pretty good hockey thus far this season. Six different players scored for SCSU including Blake Lizotte who finally netted his first collegiate goal. Another first-year player, Easton Brodzinski had a goal and an assist in a strong effort and was named the games #1 star.

The Huskies went to work in the first period scoring three times to take a lead they never relinquished. Easton Brodzinski (R Poehling | Schuldt) scored his second goal of the year at 6:45 of period one. Poehling fed Brodzinski from behind the goal and Brodzinski one-timed the puck past CC’s Leclerc for a 1-0 SCSU lead. Next, Will Borgen (B Lizotte | Benson) got on the score sheet at 13:42 with his first goal of the season. A nice three-way pass between Benson, Lizotte and Borgen ended as the game-winning goal for the Huskies. Patrick Newell rounded out the scoring at 14:01 of period one with his first goal of the year. Newell (Peterson | J Lizotte) led the play into the Tiger zone and followed his initial shot towards the net with a shot that beat Leclerc and ended his night in goal. Leclerc was replaced by Alec Calvaruso who was seeing his first minutes of the season. SCSU outshot the Tigers 13-7 in a period clearly being dominated by the Huskies by periods end.

After failing on their second man-advantage of the game, the Huskies finally added their fourth goal at 14:16 by senior Blake Winiecki. Winiecki (Borgen | Schuldt) fielded a rebound off a shot by Will Borgen and beat Calvaruso from the left circle. In a period without a lot of push back by the Tigers SCSU outshot CC 22-5. The Huskies were winning nearly all races to the puck and controlling puck posession for lengthy periods of time in the CC zone.

The Huskies scored quickly in the third period as Robby Jackson (Brodznski | R Poehling) scored his fifth of the year. Easton Brodzinski made a nice centering pass to Jackson from the side of the goal and Jackson buried it for a 5-0 Husky lead. The Tigers finally beat Jeff Smith at 3:37 of the final period on the power play with a goal by Cloquet, MN native Westin Michaud. It was Michaud’s fourth goal of the year and made it a 5-1 game. SCSU wrapped up their scoring for the night at 12:01 on a nice wraparound goal by Blake Lizotte for his first career goal as a Husky.  Lizotte (Eyssimont | Benson) carried the puck aound the back of the CC goal and curled it past Calvaruso while on his knees for the 6-1 final. SCSU outshot CC 11-10 in the final session.

SCSU outshot Colorado College 46 to 22 for the contest. Alex Leclerc stopped 7/10 SCSU shots before being removed from the game at 1:01 of period one. His replacement, Alec Calvaruso stopped 33/36 SCSU shots on goal . Jeff Smith turned aside 21/22 SOG in earning his fifth win of the season. Frustration continues for the Huskies on the power play as they went 0/3. They are now 1/14 in the last three games. The Tigers were 1/4 on their man-advantage opportunities.

Stars of the Game: #1 Brodzinski (SCSU) #2 Borgen (SCSU) #3 Schuldt (SCSU)

HUSKIES TO FACE RESURGENT CC TIGERS IN HOME SERIES

The Huskies will receive a significant challenge from the Tigers this weekend. They’ve had success on the road thus far this season and have had success in St. Cloud winning 4 of the last 10 games. They have some legitimate goal scorers in Mason Bergh, Trey Bradley and Nick Halloran and a quality goaltender in Alex Leclerc.  Special teams have been a weakness  for Colorado College and the Huskies will need to take advantage of that if given the opportunity. The Huskies need to get back to more disciplined play and stay out of the penalty box. They’ve incurred 29 penalties for 75 minutes or an average of 8 minutes per game in the last four games.  MORE HERE

PIONEERS COMPLETE SWEEP OF SCSU 5-1

Denver, CO – A marquee series between two top-ranked teams culminated in a frustrating penalty-filled contest as the Huskies were swept by a 5-1 score at Magness Arena on Saturday, November 11. In what should have been a highly entertaining game between two skilled teams evolved into a special teams battle won by Denver with three of their goals scored on the power play.  The Huskies on the other hand were whistled 12 times for 38 minutes and failed on five of their own man-advantage opportunities in a disappointing weekend. The losses dropped the SCSU overall record to 7-2-0 and their NCHC record to 2-2-0. MORE HERE

PIONEERS SNAP STREAK WITH 4-2 WIN OVER SCSU

Denver, CO – Sophomore forward Henrik Borgstrom has made a practice of feasting on the Huskies in his short career at DU. During the 2016-17 season, he had three goals in four games including two game-winners. On Friday, Borgstrom again victimized the Huskies scoring twice in a 4-2 win at Magness Arena in Denver, CO.  Fellow mates Jarid Luosevicius, Troy Terry and Dylan Gambrell also combined for 4 points including the game-winner and two goals from Lucosevcius. The win snapped a Husky seven-game streak to start the season and also a two-game losing streak by the Pioneers.

HUSKIES FACE HUGE ROAD TEST VS #3 DENVER

This should be a dandy of a series between two of the top teams in the NCHC and the country. I’m sure the Pioneers had a heated week of practice after an upsetting sweep at the hands of the Western Michigan Broncos last weekend in Kalamazoo. This will be the Huskies first road extended road trip of the season as they head to Denver. The Huskies earlier had a same day road trip to Mankato to start the season. MORE HERE

HRENAK GETS SHUTOUT AND HUSKIES SWEEP UMD

St. Cloud, MN – Forget about the six game winless streak vs the UMD Bulldogs at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. That streak was quickly extinguished in a weekend sweep of #8 ranked UMD after a 5-0 route on Saturday. After a tough battle with UMD to earn a 5-3 win Friday, the undermanned Bulldogs had little in the tank in the rematch and were unable to solve first-year goaltender David Hrenak who earned his first collegiate shutout. The banged up Bulldogs who were missing three key forwards and two defenseman lacked the horses to sustain three periods of play with the undefeated Huskies and ultimately fell victim to the relentless attack of the SCSU squad.

St. Cloud, MN –  Give the UMD Bulldogs all the credit in the world. After a short week of practice following a trip to Orono, Maine they found themselves missing three top forwards and a defenseman yet pushed the Huskies deep into the third period before falling 5-3 at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. Special teams played a major role with a combined 17 penalties for 45 minutes including an odd five-minute major whistled on SCSU’s Will Borgen for interference. Yet, as the Huskies have done in nearly every game, they rallied late to tie down another victory and maintain their unblemished record at 6-0-0. MORE HERE

HUSKIES TO HOST BOSTON COLLEGE IN ST. CLOUD THIS WEEKEND

This will be one of the marquee games in the world of college hockey this weekend. A true traditional hockey power, this will be a great opportunity for the St. Cloud fans to see a non-conference opponent they rarely see outside of NCAA play. Both teams are similar with their style of play and you’ll see a lot of north/south hockey and outstanding speed possessed by both teams. The key for the Huskies is to be able to solve Boston College’s top goaltender, Joseph Woll. Coach Motzko is very familiar with this goaltender as Woll was a member of the Motzko coached World Junior team in 2017. MORE HERE

HUSKIES GET OVERTIME WIN TO SWEEP NANOOKS

St. Cloud, MN – It’s a long trip from Fairbanks Alaska to St. Cloud. After a frustrating loss on Friday, you’d think the visiting Nanooks would have little fight left in them. Not to be. The squad from Alaska fought tooth and nail and pushed the host Huskies into overtime before losing  by a 5-4 score at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center on Saturday. In a wild one, the lead changed four times before the Huskies nailed down an overtime win on a Nick Poehling goal at 2:06 of overtime. To top things off, the goal was assisted by twin brother Jack Poehling for a fitting end to this non-conference weekend.  And, younger brother Ryan, scored the game tying goal late in the third period to place them into the position to earn the OT game winner.

Both were instrumental in a hard-fought 4-0 road win vs the WCHA’s top team in Mankato on Saturday, October 7. Smith stopped all 42 shots he faced and junior defensemen Jimmy Schuldt and Jon Lizotte led the offense with goals in the non-conference win over the Mavericks. MORE HERE

Hentges was drafted #237 in round 5 of the 2017 Phase II USHL Draft.  MORE HERE


SCSU VS U OF REGINA PART II

St. Cloud, MN – Before we get too crazy about the 8-0 result on Saturday vs Regina keep in mind the Huskies have now outscored  the Cougars 25-4 in three meetings. Sister school, Minnesota State University Mankato matched the Huskies result on Sunday also winning 8-0. Nevertheless, it was a good environment for the coaching staff to evaluate the first-year players, fiddle with line combinations and tinker with the special teams play. MORE HERE

LIZOTTE AND SCSU BURY REGINA 8-0 IN EXHIBITION

St. Cloud, MN – Granted, there’s a few things to work on but whenever you throw 53 shots on goal, get 6 points out of first-year players and a shutout on a combined effort of three goaltenders you have to be pleased.  The Huskies were not hospitable hosts burying the puck eight times in a 8-0 exhibition win over the University of Regina on Saturday, September 30. And, oh by the way, not a bad effort when you figure just nine hours earlier the Huskies were skating in their first formal practice of the season.  MORE HERE

HUSKIES TO OPEN 2017-18 SEASON WITH EXHIBITION VS REGINA

St. Cloud, MN – The 2017-18 edition of the St. Cloud State University men’s hockey team begins its formal team practice on Saturday, September 30th with a two-hour session in preparation for an exhibition game that same evening with The University of Regina Cougars. This is a rematch with the same team SCSU defeated  6-2 a year ago in St. Cloud.  The Huskies are coming off a 16-19-1 2016-17 season, their lowest number of wins since the 2010-11 season.
The 2017-18 squad has added seven first-year players after losing four to graduation and two others (Driscoll and Chowlowski) who have moved on to play elsewhere. The Huskies have added goaltender David Hrenak, defensemen Tyler Anderson and Lucas Jaycox and forwards Easton Brodzinski, Blake Lizotte, Will Hammer and Kevin Fitzgerald. MORE HERE

JUNIOR CLASS READY TO LEAD SCSU INTO 2017-18 SEASON

St. Cloud, MN – After a record setting 31 wins in 2015-16 the Huskies had an enormous task ahead of them heading into the 2016-17 season. Losing 219 points of offense and All-American goaltender Charlie Lindgren made the 2016-17 season a certain rebuilding year for the Huskies. They finished with a 16-19-1 record – the lowest number of wins for Coach Bob Motzko since the 2010-11 season and second lowest since he took over the reigns in 2005-06. Nevertheless, Motzko was upbeat about his squad last season feeling he had a good nucleus of players to work with and a “fresh feel” about the team. Certainly, although not intended, a great deal of pressure was placed on the large sophomore class to act as a ballast as they treaded the choppy waters of the NCHC. Not helping matters was the reliance on two first-year goaltenders, Jeff Smith and Zach Driscoll who had their struggles the first half of the season in the rugged NCHC as the Huskies barely kept their head above .500 with a 9-8-1 overall record. However, as the season continued the sophomores did perform finishing the season with five of the top seven points scorers and a defense led by sophomores Jimmy Schuldt, Will Borgen and Jon Lizzotte. Goaltending took a turn for the better as well with Jeff Smith taking over the majority of minutes compiling a 92% save percentage over the second half of the season. Thus, with the official first day of practice this Saturday (9/30) the coaching staff is upbeat about the team and anxious to continue the momentum they started in the second half of the 2016-17 season. The normally sedate Coach Motzko even willing to proclaim the team is “light years ahead of where we were at this time last year. There’s great excitement. the guys are in great shape.” Early predictions have the Huskies finishing second in the NCHC preseason poll and ranked ninth in the USCHO and sixth in the USA Hockey/USA Today preseason polls. Experience, depth and improved goaltending should lead the Huskies to success in 2017-18. In particular, the junior class consisting of eight returning players will be expected to carry a heavy load both on offense and defense. With that said, here’s a preview of the team by position as they head into an exhibition game with Regina on Saturday, September 30th. MORE HERE

HUSKIES RELOAD WITH 2017-18 CLASS OF RECRUITS

It’s a never-ending process in Division One college hockey. Players graduating, signing pro contracts, transferring to other programs and defecting for various reasons. The collegiate coaching staff has to constantly be on the move evaluating players to fill gaps in their rosters three to four years down the road. Like a successful salesperson, they need to prospect, make a proposal to a prospective recruit and finally close the deal. Competition nationally for the elite player is intense and the coaching staffs that project properly and get entrenched early on these players ultimately will have the upper hand in closing the deal. The SCSU coaching staff has done their homework well and is bringing in a diverse group of quality players in it’s 2017-18 freshman class. This class is the result of three to four years of diligent recruiting and will supplement a roster ready to make some noise this season. With that said, let’s take a look at the 2017-18 group of first-year players:

With a year of eligibility remaining for junior hockey Driscoll has several choices. He could choose to take a red shirt year and return to SCSU with another year of high level hockey behind him or transfer to another NCAA program. Driscoll apparently is leaving his options open.

CENTERICEVIEW SCSU ROAD TRIP RANKING 2017-18

I’ve been a St. Cloud State University hockey road warrior since 1986 and have literally been to nearly every hockey venue the team has visited since. As such, it probably gives me a bit of credibility to compile a list of the top destinations for SCSU hockey fans to attend during the 2017-18 season. Keeping in mind that fans have different travel budgets and tastes my list won’t be suited to every fan. However, logistically, this years schedule allows most fans to travel by vehicle to five of the destinations out of nine this season. And, with a little planning, all five of these road trips can be done reasonably without a lot of pain to your budget. So, with that said here’s my list of the top road trip destinations (with comments) for SCSU hockey fans for the 2017-18 season:

THREE SCSU HUSKIES SELECTED IN 2017 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Ryan Poehling (Forward, Lakeville, MN) – Round One | 25th selection by the Montreal Canadiens

Poehling will return to the Huskies as an 18 year old sophomore in 2017-18. The youngest player in NCAA Division One Hockey in 2016-17, Poehling will look to build upon his experience in the NCHC to play a more prominent role for SCSU and to build upon his 7-6-13 statistics in 2016-17. An aggressive and skilled forward with size, Poehling can play both ends of the rink and has added size and strength and he will be counted on by the Huskies to be a leader in 2017-18. MORE HERE

HUSKIES GET RARE MJHL RECRUIT IN TYLER ANDERSON

St. Cloud, MN- You’d have to go back to the 2000-01 season to find a player on the SCSU roster from Winnipeg, Manitoba. That season, the Huskies roster included all-purpose player, Ritchie Larson and future NHLer Tyler Arnason. Larson was probably the last Husky to skate in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League playing for the Winnipeg South Blues in the late 90’s. So, in a rarity for the Huskies, they recently received a commitment from one of the top defensemen in the league, Tyler Anderson of the Steinbach Pistons.

SCSU HOCKEY UPDATES FROM THE VIEW (4/21/2017)

The Huskies revealed their complete 2017-18 schedule and it’s certainly a much more fan friendly calendar than that of 2016-17.

This will be the first meeting with Boston College since a loss to the Eagles in the Florida College Classic in 2004. The Boston College trip to St. Cloud is part of a multi-year agreement with Boston College and Northeastern University of Hockey East. During the 2018-19 season, SCSU will travel to Boston to face Northeastern and Boston College in a weekend non-conference series. Northeastern travels to St. Cloud for a non-conference series in 2019-20 and the Huskies return to Boston to face the Eagles in 2020-21.
