Facilities - The Old (the Joyce Center)

N

otre Dame’s Joyce Center, celebrating its 44th year of service to the University in 2011-12, serves as a multi-purpose sports complex, a theatre and concert hall, a convention center and an office building – and as the home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish hockey team. The building was renamed in 1987 to honor Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C, Notre Dame’s executive vice president from 1952 until his retirement in 1987. Formerly known as the Athletic and Convocation Center (ACC), the structure is now referred to as the Joyce Center. Designed by Ellerbe Architects of St. Paul, Minn., the Joyce Center was conceived at the outset as a combination athletic-civic center, with $1.8 million alone contributed by persons in the Michiana area. The Center’s distinctive domes, covered with a white vinyl roofing material stretched over steel ribbing, rise just east of Notre Dame’s football stadium. The building is both wider and longer than the famous stadium and encloses more area than Houston’s Astrodome. In all, the $8.6-million structure covers 10 acres of ground. Campus officials draw the comparison with Stepan Center, a student activities building which once held the campus seating record of 3,800, by pointing out that Stepan can be placed within the circumference of the north dome’s field house running track without touching the adjacent ice rink. The field house, and in particular the hockey facility, has undergone a series of improvements in recent years to give the Irish more of a “home-ice advantage.” Renovations to coaches offices and the locker rooms along with the addition of a dividing curtain have helped make the Joyce Center rink one of the toughest places to play in the CCHA. Fans also have benefited from Notre Dame’s commitment to hockey, with theatre-style seating that replaced metal bleachers on the north side of the arena. City officials are equally fond of the figure of 464,800 square feet of usable floor area, a statistic which makes the Joyce Center the largest exhibition hall between Detroit and Chicago. During the spring of 2009, the south arena’s design began a $26.3 million renovation that has become the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. The upgrades include the replacement of existing arena seating, including installation of chairback seating from top to bottom of the arena; a new stadium club/ hospitality area with premium seating for 800 fans; new fixed concession areas and new restrooms. A two-story addition to the south end of the current structure includes a new ticket office and varsity shop as well as a new main entrance and lobby between gate 8 and 10. The exchange of bleacher seating to chairback seating reduced the capacity to approximately 9,800. The north arena is the home of Irish hockey and can be set up to hold 2,713 fans at normal seating and 2,763 with standing room. Virtually every sport at Notre Dame — varsity, club or intramural — can play or practice in either the field house, the arena, the five auxiliary gymnasiums or the several work areas provided throughout the spacious building. In 1985, the Rolfs Aquatic Center opened on the eastside of the Joyce Center. The 4.5-million-dollar facility houses a 50-meter Olympic-size pool (25 yards in width) and spectator seating for 400. In addition to these areas, the Joyce Center also

contains the administrative and business side of the increasingly complex collegiate sports operation. Ticket offices, with mobile booths that can be wheeled to locations, are lodged inside, along with offices for coaches, athletic administrators, and sports information and press facilities. These offices and facilities are located in a central complex that joins the two arenas and, in general, houses the people and machinery common to both. A spacious concourse also is contained in this core area, as is a tastefully appointed Monogram Room and the Sports Heritage Hall, surrounded by small meeting rooms. On the lower level of the concourse, there are several thousand lockers, a faculty exercise room, a golf driving range, squash, racquetball and handball courts with a central kitchen for catering. The Joyce Center played host to its 300th all-time win at the Joyce Center on Feb. 13, 2004 when the Irish defeated Ferris State, 4-2. The hockey team’s all-time home record now stands at 373-289-59 (.558) in 43 seasons on the Joyce Center ice. During the 2008-09 season, Notre Dame was 13-3-2 on home ice for a .778 winning percentage. Over the past six seasons under Jeff Jackson, the Irish are a nifty 65-31-13 for a .656 win percentage at the Joyce Center. That mark is highlighted by a 13-2-2 mark (.824) in the record-setting season of 2006-07. In 2003-04, Notre Dame equaled a school record by going 15 games (13-0-2) without a loss at home on the way to a 14-2-2 mark. The 14 wins were the second-best win total (surpassed only by the 18 wins the 1987-88 team recorded) in the program’s history. Over the past 10 campaigns, the Joyce Center has been home to several huge wins for the Irish hockey program. On Oct. 22, 2004, the Irish stunned No. 1 ranked Boston College, 3-2, in front of a standing room only crowd of 2,763. The win marked the first Notre Dame win over a top-ranked team since Jan. 13, 1978 when the Irish defeated then No. 1 Denver, 5-3, at the Joyce Center. During the 2003-04 season, Notre Dame hosted their first home playoff series since 1999-2000, defeating Western Michigan, two games to one. The Irish also swept fourth-ranked Michigan in a home series for the first time since the 1981-82 campaign. Both games were played in front of sellout crowds of 2,763. Since 2005-06, the Irish have hosted CCHA playoff action in five of six seasons, including four second round series from 2007-09 and 2011. Notre Dame owns an 8-2 record in winning those four second round appearances and has advanced to the CCHA championship in each of those seasons. In each of the last three seasons, the Irish have averaged better than a sellout out crowd (2,713) per games topped by the 2010-11 campaign that saw the Notre Dame average 2,801 per contest with 16 sellouts in 19 home dates. On Jan. 30, 2009 versus Michigan, 3,007 fans jammed their way into the Joyce Center, the largest crowd since Mar. 3, 1995, when 3,310 saw the Irish play Illinois-Chicago in the final game before new seating reduced capacity to 2,713. Since the new seating configuration for the 199596 season, the Irish have hosted 124 sellout crowds for hockey at the Joyce Center.

Facilities-The New Compton Family Ice Arena The wait will soon be over for Notre Dame hockey fans from the campus and the entire South Bend area as the sparkling new, state-of-the-art, on-campus ice facility - The Compton Family Ice Arena - is set to open on October 18, 2011 just a few short weeks into the 2011-12 season. This brand new facility has been in the works since Feb. 12, 2009 when the original announcement for the new building was made by Notre Dame executive vice-president John Affleck-Graves and athletics director Jack Swarbrick after the University’s Board of Trustees approved the plan. Originally, plans were to renovate the Joyce Center Ice Rink, the home of the Notre Dame hockey program since 1968. Those plans included a permanent arena inside the north dome of the facility. Additional studies in the fall of 2008 changed that plan instead to one that entailed a new stand-alone building. On Sept. 11, 2010, a project blessing ceremony for the $50-million facility was held with many of the key benefactors in attendance. At the ceremony, Swarbrick, announced that the building would be named the Compton Family Ice Arena in honor of the generous donation from Kevin and Gayla Compton and their family. The Comptons are part of the ownership group of the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks. Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Notre Dame’s President began the ceremony with a blessing of the site and offering of a prayer for the safety of those working on the project. Irish head coach Jeff Jackson followed by talking about the original plans and how those plans changed to become the Compton Family Ice Arena. “When I first came here, we were talking about a renovation in the Joyce Center,” said Jackson, now in his seventh season behind the Notre Dame bench. “With Jack’s (Swarbrick) foresight and Tom [Nevala] and everyone involved in pushing for this to happen, waiting an additional year to have a new facility is something that is going to have a tremendous impact on the future of our program and we’re very proud of that.”

An overhead view of the Compton Family Ice Arena taken on May 16, 2011. The ice facility is located south of the Joyce Center, just north of Edison Road and west of Leahy Drive and the new Irish track and field facility. The Compton Family Ice Arena will house the Charles “Lefty” Smith, Jr., Rink and seat 5,000 fans. A second rink will include an Olympic-size sheet of ice with both rinks meant to meet the needs of the University and the local community. Jackson also thanked the benefactors in attendance for their generosity towards the project. Swarbrick spoke at the ceremony, and touched upon how important the Compton Family Ice Arena will be for the Michiana community. “There’s a limit to how much the community can use our dormitories and our classrooms and our laboratories, but the athletic facilities can be a special point of contact,” Swarbrick said. “I hope we win national championships with teams that train here and I hope we build new programs for our athletes and our students. But the ultimate success of this facility will be if we inspire a young boy or a young girl from the community to shoot higher, if we challenge them to be better people because they

spend time on our campus. Then we’ve realized the potential of athletics at Notre Dame.” The Compton Family Center will house both the Charles “Lefty” Smith rink, within the new 5,000-person capacity, home of the Irish hockey team and a second sheet of ice (Olympic-sized) with limited seating availability. The majority of the general public arena seating will be of the chair-back variety. The new building also will include offices for the Notre Dame coaching staff, a state-of-the art locker room suite that includes both wet and dry locker rooms, meeting rooms, a sports medicine area that includes hot and cold hydrotherapy, cardio and weight rooms, a players’ lounge, equipment areas, video operations and a multi-purpose room that will be the location for weekly team Mass and serve as a study lounge and dining area. The arena also will feature a balcony level with a 200-seat, Irish pub-themed club named O’Brien’s, multiple concession areas on both levels, spacious restrooms and a merchandise shop. The Compton Family Ice Arena also will serve the Notre Dame and South Bend community as a place for the Irish Youth Hockey League (IYHL) and local figure

Construction on the Compton Family Ice Arena has moved quickly. Construction began in March of 2010 with the first steel beams (right) moved into place on July 27, 2010. Just over a year later, the Irish are ready to open the new building.

Lefty’s Legend To Continue In 2003, former Notre Dame hockey coach Charles “Lefty” Smith received the “Legend of Hockey Award” from the Hobey Baker Memorial Award Foundation and was honored at the annual Hobey Baker Awards Banquet that spring in his native Minnesota. Long before that honor recognized Smith nationally, the popular Notre Dame icon had established his legendary status in the South Bend-Michiana area as a hockey coach, administrator, mentor and citizen during his 40-plus years of service to the University. His status in the community was set in stone in April of 2008 at the hockey team’s annual awards banquet when it was announced that the new hockey rink at the University of Notre Dame’s new ice arena will be named the Charles W. “Lefty” Smith, Jr., Rink. The plans for naming the new ice surface in honor of Smith were made possible by the generosity of the John and Mary Jo Boler family of Inverness, Ill., and Sanibel Island, Fla., their daughter Jill Boler McCormack ‘84 and her husband, Dan; and their son Matthew Boler ‘88 and his wife, Christine. They were joined by the family of Frank ‘57 and Mary Beth O’Brien of Albany, N.Y., who have six children who all graduated from Notre Dame. Their late son, Frankie, played both lacrosse and hockey for the Irish from 1984-88. Smith came to Notre Dame in 1968 to start the varsity hockey program and coached the Irish for 19 years, retiring in 1987 with 307 career victories. Under his tutelage, Notre Dame produced six All-Americans but most importantly, all 126 student-athletes who played for him completed their collegiate eligibility and earned college degrees. Smith, who continues to work as the director of the Loftus Sports Center on campus, served two Charles “Lefty” Smith talks to Tom Nevala, senior associate years as the president of the American Hockey Coaches Association. He was inducted into the athletics director on Sept. 22, 2011 on his first tour of the Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1992. He played an integral in bringing Compton Family Ice Arena. Smith, along with his former assistant coach, Tim McNeill (behind Smith), were on hand to the International Special Olympics to Notre Dame in 1987. Lefty and his wife, Mickey, who passed away on Nov. 9, 2009, were married for 57 years. They help paint the new ice. The former coaching duo put the first sheet of ice down at the Joyce Center in 1968 and helped are the parents of seven living children, with 16 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. christen the new sheet on the “Lefty” Smith Rink.

Jack Swarbrick

Vice President • Director of Athletics

J

ohn B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who rose to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his fourth year as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater. Among Swarbrick’s athletics initiatives are meeting the performance needs of Notre Dame student-athletes through establishment of a new sports performance division, reaching out to more former Irish studentathletes via the Notre Dame Monogram Club and other programs, utilizing emerging digital technologies to deliver better information on and access to Notre Dame athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming, and restructuring Notre Dame’s approach to sport administration through assignment of a unique administrator to each of the 26 Irish sports. Notre Dame ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the three most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys -- in 2010 and 2009 with 99 scores (including in ‘09 a 97 score and ’10 a 96 in football that both also ranked number one). The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution. The 2010 Notre Dame APR report featured eight perfect 1,000 scores. The past three years combined in Notre Dame athletics have featured 94 All-Americans, 19 Academic All-America selections and five NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners; record involvement in community service hours by Irish student-athletes; NCAA titles in 2011 in men’s and women’s fencing (a combined championship) and in 2010 in women’s soccer (with Randy Waldrum named coach of the year); NCAA runner-up team finishes in 2011 women’s basketball, 2010 men’s lacrosse, 2009 fencing and 2008 women’s soccer; NCAA semifinal appearances in 2011 hockey, 2009 and 2010 women’s tennis and 2009 women’s soccer, plus a 2010 third-place fencing finish; a men’s basketball modern program record 27 victories and a number-two NCAA seed (its highest in 30 years) in 2010-11 (resulting in national coach of the year awards for Mike Brey); the hiring of new Irish head football coach Brian Kelly to start the 2010 season; construction of a new, freestanding ice hockey arena, scheduled to open for the 2011-12 season, plus the 2009-10 dedications

of new facilities for soccer and lacrosse – as well as opening of the new Purcell Pavilion within the south dome of the Joyce Center. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., and raised in Yonkers and Bloomington, Ind., Swarbrick is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels. He made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years overall with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick led many of the city’s successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations – from the National Football League to the United States Olympic Committee to the Big Ten Conference. His leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the right to play host to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium; becoming the home of the National Collegiate Athletic Association national headquarters in 1999; hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and an array of national and world championships in Olympic sports. At Baker & Daniels, Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and US Rowing, and as a consultant to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. In his work as an advisor to the NCAA, Swarbrick coordinated the men’s College Basketball Partnership, an NCAA-led group that addresses the opportunities and challenges in the sport, and developed the business plan for the new NBA/NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops. In 2000 Swarbrick received one of the NCAA’s highest honors, The Flying Wedge Award, for his work in establishing Indianapolis as the new home of the NCAA. In 2001 the State of Indiana presented him with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick was named Notre Dame’s 12th athletics director on July 16, 2008. He and his wife, Kimberly, are the parents of four children: Kate, a 2010 graduate of St. Louis University; Connor, a 2011 graduate of Wake Forest University; Cal, a sophomore at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame freshman.

Irish Hockey Notebook Notre Dame Hockey by the Numbers 6,901 Career minutes played by goaltender Lance Madson (1986-90).

3,007 The size of the crowd on three occasions since Jan. 30, 2009 at the Joyce Center for Irish hockey. On that date, the Irish faced Michigan and the standing-room only crowd was the largest to see Notre Dame play since March 10, 1995 when 3,310 saw the Irish defeat Illinois-Chicago. Following that season, new seating was installed reducing the capacity of the Joyce Center. During the 2009-10 season, that number was reached twice, on Jan. 15, 2010 versus Michigan State and again on Jan. 29 against Nebraska-Omaha. 2,557:46

The Notre Dame single-season record for minutes played by an Irish goaltender, set by Jordan Pearce during the 2007-08 season.

2010-11 The final full season of hockey at the Joyce Center.

1968 First varsity hockey season of the modern era.

1912 First varsity hockey season. 323 Career coaching wins by current Irish head coach Jeff Jackson, between Notre Dame and Lake Superior State. 307 Career coaching wins by Lefty Smith, in 19 seasons at Notre Dame.

193:27 David Brown’s consecutive shutout minutes streak set from Oct. 17 through Nov. 8, 2003. Brown recorded the streak over a five-game span that included three consecutive shutouts (vs. Bowling Green, Boston College and Nebraska-Omaha). The three consecutive shutouts and the consecutive minutes are both Notre Dame records. 164 Notre Dame’s all-time record for games played in a career. That mark was set by Kevin Deeth who played from 2006-10. During his career, Deeth missed three games, two in ‘07-’08 and one in ‘09-’10. 163 The number of consecutive games played by Notre Dame’s all-time “Iron Man” Mark Van Guilder. Van Guilder graduated following the 2007-08 season and did not miss a game his entire career. 141 Jeff Jackson’s win total in his five seasons behind the Notre Dame bench. The Irish bench boss is 141-79-27 (.624) since taking over behind the bench prior to the 2005-06 season. 12

ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICAN HONORS – For the first time in the program’s history, two members of the Notre Dame hockey team were selected as ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-Americans on the at-Large team following the 2008-09 season. Senior goaltender Jordan Pearce (Anchorage, Alaska) was selected first team after recording a 3.816 grade-point average in his double major of anthropology/pre-med. For Pearce, it marked the second consecutive year that he was named Academic All-American after taking second team honors in‘07-’08. He was joined by fellow senior Erik Condra (Livonia, Mich.) who was a second team selection after turning in a 3.55 grade point with a double major in psychology and pre-med. Pearce became the second Irish player to be named twice as he joined Steve Noble ‘98 who was selected in 1997 (first team) and 1998 (second team). The Irish have had six players all-time named Academic All-American as Condra and Pearce are joined by Dan Carlson ‘01 (third team), Andy Jurkowski‘00 (third team), Forrest Karr‘99 (second team) and Noble in ‘97 and ‘98. ALL-JOYCE CENTER TEAM: In conjunction with the final full season of hockey at the Joyce Center (201011), an 18-man All-Joyce Center team was selected to honor the top players to play at Notre Dame in the 43-year history of the home of the Irish. The team was selected with the help of former coaches, administrators and players along with a fan vote that included over 7,000 ballots. The teams were announced during the final week of the regular season and at the final home game on Feb. 26 versus Western Michigan. The All-Joyce Center Teams: First Team: Forward - Brian Walsh (1973-77) Forward - Dave Poulin (1978-82) Forward - Erik Condra (2005-09) Defense - Jack Brownschidle (1973-77) Defense - Bill Nyrop (1970-74) Goaltender - David Brown (2003-07) Second Team Forward - Greg Meredith (1976-80) Forward - Eddie Bumbacco (1970-74) Forward - Mike McNeill (1984-88) Defense - Ian Cole (2007-10) Defense - Benoit Cotnoir (1995-99) Goaltender - Jordan Pearce (2005-09) Third Team Forward - Kirt Bjork (1979-83) Forward - Jamie Ling (1992-96) Forward - Dan Carlson (1997-01) Defense - Jeff Brownschidle (1977-81) Defense - Brett Lebda (2000-04) Goaltender - Lance Madson (1986-90)

APR LEADERS – The Notre Dame hockey program was one of 11 University athletic programs to post Academic Progress Rate (APR) numbers that ranked them best in the nation within their sports - and 12 others produced top-10 APR figures among all NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) institutions, according to institutional research based on 2011 numbers released in late May by the NCAA. Irish hockey posted a 997 score to finish ahead of Ohio State (993), Michigan (988), Western Michigan (986), Connecticut (985) and Minnesota (981). APR statistics for Irish sports featured nine perfect 1000 scores - in men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s golf, women’s golf, women’s rowing, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, men’s indoor track and field and men’s outdoor track and field. Other programs that ranked number one within their sports were men’s ice hockey (at 997) and men’s lacrosse (at 998). CAPTAINS – Two members of the Irish senior class and one sophomore will serve as captains for the 201112 season. Defenseman Sean Lorenz (Littleton, Colo.) and forward Billy Maday (Burr Ridge, Ill.) will wear the “C”as co-captains for Jeff Jackson’s squad this year. Sophomore Anders Lee (Edina, Minn.) will serve as the team’s alternate captain. For all three players, this is their first time to be captains at Notre Dame. CLUTCH SCORER – Freshman left wing Anders Lee proved to be one of Notre Dame’s top clutch scorers during the 2010-11 season. Lee, who led the Irish with 24 goals, scored seven game winners to lead the team and the CCHA. Those seven game winners tied a Notre Dame single-season record that was set in 1989-90 by David Bankoske ‘93, who also had seven game-winning goals. COMEBACK KID – Sophomore defenseman Sam Calabrese (Park Ridge, Ill.) had a season to remember in 2010-11 after having a season to forget the previous year as a freshman. In his rookie year, Calabrese suffered a broken leg in his third game of the year and missed the remainder of the campaign. In ‘10-’11, the Park Ridge, Ill., native showed what he could do as he led Notre Dame defensemen in scoring with six goals and 12 assists for 18 points in 42 games, notching a power-play goal and two short-handed markers while being +24 for the season.

A third player, forward Steven Fogarty, (Edina, Minn.) who signed a national letterof-intent last April, was selected in the third round by the New York Rangers. He will play junior hockey this season and join the Irish for the 2012-13 season. Those three join junior Riley Sheahan who became Notre Dame’s third-ever first round pick in June of 2010 when he was chosen 21st overall by the Detroit Red Wings. Sheahan joins former defenseman Ian Cole (2007 - St. Louis) who was selected 18th overall and former right wing Kyle Palmieri (2009 - Anaheim), the 26th pick overall. Sheahan was followed by sophomore defenseman Stephen Johns, who went in the second round, 60th overall to the Chicago Black Hawks.

Season Preview Great Anticipation Greets The Irish In 2011-12 Campaign Notre Dame looks to build on Frozen Four finish of 2011 and the opening of the new Compton Family Arena. Excitement and anticipation surround the Notre Dame hockey team as the Irish prepare to start the 2011-12 season. First, Notre Dame returns 17 letter winners from a team that was 25-14-5 overall and 18-7-3-2 in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. The Irish were in first place in the CCHA until the final day of the season when Michigan snuck past them to take the top spot by a mere two points. The Notre Dame icers turned in a bounce-back season from the previous year when they were 13-17-8 and lost in the first round of the CCHA playoffs. And, head coach Jeff Jackson and his staff did it with 12 freshmen on the roster, playing as many as 11 on given nights. With a young lineup, Notre Dame came together as a team due, in part, to outstanding leadership from its upperclassmen. The Irish put it all together at the right time and advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four for just the second time in the program’s history where they fell in the semifinals to eventual champion, Minnesota-Duluth. How far can this year’s team go is the new big question? Early season prognosticators think highly of the Irish and one thing for sure is that they won’t be able to sneak up and surprise anyone this year. The second thing on the list that players and fans alike anticipate is the move to the state-of-the-art, 5,000-seat Compton Family Ice Arena. The new home of the Irish hockey program is set to open on Oct. 18 and promises to give the Notre Dame hockey program a first-class facility for its players to add new banners to the rafters in coming years. While anticipation and expectations are nice to have, they can also become a burden and a weight on a team’s shoulders, especially when that team has never had to deal with it in the past. That’s where Jackson comes in. The veteran coach will have his team prepared to start the season where they left off last April. During the early weeks of September, he summed up how the Irish can look at their 2010-11 success. “As a team we can be happy that we made it to the Frozen Four,”explains Jackson, now in his seventh season behind the Notre Dame bench. “Or, we can look back and realize that we lost our last game of the season. That’s the mindset that I want our players to have, that we still have some goals to accomplish.”. After having to replace 13 players a year ago, Notre Dame lost only five players to graduation and none to pro hockey. Of those five, four were everyday players and key leaders who contributed both on and off the ice. Lost to graduation were defenseman and team captain Joe

Lavin, forwards Ryan Guentzel, Calle Ridderwall and Ben Ryan and fourth goaltender Brian Brooke. Lavin and Guentzel get a great deal of credit for the way they indoctrinated the freshman class into the Notre Dame hockey program starting with the day the rookies arrived for summer school in June The duo helped make the transition to college go smoothly while mixing them with the returning players. On the ice, both had career seasons. Lavin, who joined the Irish in Jan. of 2010 after transferring from Providence College, had six goals and 11 assists for 17 points and proved to be a capable leader in a very short time as his teammates chose him as team captain after half a season in South Bend. Guentzel, Ridderwall and Ryan were all that remained from an outstanding recruiting class that began their careers in 2007. During their four seasons in an Irish jersey, that trio turned in a mark of 95-53-20 (.625), won one CCHA regular-season and tournament title (2008-09) and are the only players in school history to play in two Frozen Fours. Guentzel, an alternate captain, saved his best for last as a senior. He turned in career highs in ‘10-’11, with six goals and 33 assists for 39 points in 44 games. His assist totals led the team in that category. In his first 100 career games, the Minnesota native had four goals and 17 assists for 21 points. Ridderwall, who joined Guentzel and Ryan as alternate captains, closed out his brilliant career, scoring 16 goals with nine assists for 25 points. He finished in the top 10 in the program’s history with 27 career power-play goals among his 57 lamplighters. Ryan was one of the team’s top playmakers during his career and chipped in six goals and 19 assists for 25 points. One of the CCHA’s top face-off men, the Brighton, Mich., native finished his career tied for fifth on the all-time games played list with 159 and just missed the 100-point mark in his career with 35 goals and 62 points for 97 points. While replacing the leadership group will be a key task for Jackson, goaltending shouldn’t be a problem as the former goaltender has three quality puckstoppers to call on this season. The trio includes one junior - Mike Johnson (Verona, Wis.) and a pair of sophomores in Steven Summerhays (Anchorage, Alaska) and Joe Rogers (Marysville, Mich.). In his first two seasons, Johnson has carried the load for Notre Dame in goal, having already played in 65 career games, making 62 starts. In those games, the steady junior is 30-23-9 with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage. During the 2010-11 season, Johnson became just the sixth Notre Dame goaltender to win 20 games in a season as he was 20-10-4 on the year with a 2.62 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage. He played a key role in the Irish advancing to the Frozen Four as he was the most valuable player of the NCAA Northeast Regional and the all-tournament goalkeeper as he gave up just four goals on 73 shots in a 4-3 overtime win against Merrimack and a 2-1 win over New Hampshire in the regional final. Summerhays was eased into the Notre Dame lineup early in the season then alternated with Johnson in goal during the second half of the season.

Junior goaltender Mike Johnson became the sixth goaltender in Irish history to win 20 or more games in a season in 2010-11 when he was 20-10-4 with a 2.62 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage.

The athletic, butterfly-style goaltender played in 12 games, making 10 starts. He had a 3.04 goals-against average and a .863 save percentage. He had the opportunity to play in several big games during the season, including making his first career start against Boston University in theWarrior IceBreaker championship game on the first weekend of the season. Rogers saw action in one game, playing the final 20 minutes in a win over Canisius. He gave up one goal for a 3.00 goals against and has a .889 save percentage. “I have confidence in our three goaltenders who continue to work hard to improve their overall games,” says Jackson. “It takes time to develop at this level. If you look at David Brown, he really came on in his third season. Jordan Pearce was a back up for two years and then really stepped up as a junior and senior.” A look at the Notre Dame defensive roster shows a young group of players headed by lone senior, captain Sean Lorenz (Littleton, Colo). After that it’s a junior - Sam Calabrese (Park Ridge, Ill.) - who has really only played one full season, four sophomores and two freshman that round out the eight-man unit. Despite the youth, this group has experience as the returnees all played at least 25 games a year ago. Lorenz returns for his final season and will be the anchor of the blue line. As a junior, the 6-1, 207-pounder had a breakout campaign. A steady, stay-at-home defender, Lorenz added offense to his game, scoring four goals with 11 assists for 15 points, while not missing a game. His strong defensive play helped him lead the CCHA with an amazing +33 for the year. It also earned him the CCHA defensive defenseman of the year award and Notre Dame’s William Donald Nyrop Award as the team’s top defender. Calabrese went from playing three games as a freshmen due to injuries to being an honorable mention all-CCHA

player in‘10-’11. He led all Irish defensemen in scoring with six goals and 12 assists and was second to Lorenz with an excellent +23 for the year. An outstanding skater, he has all the tools to be a top college defenseman. He will be counted on in all roles this season by Jackson and his staff. Four sophomores will battle for playing time after getting a baptism under fire as rookies. All four sophs - Jared Beers (Mishawaka, Ind.), Stephen Johns (Wampum, Pa.), Kevin Lind (Homer Glen, Ill.) and Shayne Taker (Surrey, B.C.) - had solid freshman years and contributed at both ends of the ice. The foursome has excellent size and, with a year under strength and conditioning coach Tony Rolinski, has added muscle to their frames. All are strong skaters and bring excellent hockey skills to the lineup. Beers, the local product, showed that he could compete at the Division I level, playing in 25 games with a goal and six assists while being +4 in the plus-minus department. A smart, player, Beers moves the puck well and has a knack for finding the open man. He will look to contribute even more to the Irish defense in his second year. The rookie defenseman who had the biggest impact not only on the defense but the entire team would be Johns. At 6-4, 230 pounds, the big, physical defenseman really made the Irish a different team because of his penchant for the physical game and dishing out big hits all over the ice. Opponents must keep an eye on where Johns is at all time or risk getting hammered into the boards or at the blue line coming into the Notre Dame zone. Along the way, the Chicago Black Hawks’draft choice, showed good hands and an ability to move the puck. Blessed with a big shot from the point, Johns will look to step up the offensive end of his game to become an even bigger force on the Irish defense. He chipped in a pair of goals with 11 assists for 13 points while leading the team with 98 penalty minutes, with many of those coming early in the year as he adapted to the college game. Lind teams up with Johns and Taker to bring size to the defense. At 6-3, 217 pounds the 19-year old sophomore

is still a growing boy. He joined the Irish a year ahead of schedule last season when Jarred Tinordi defected to the OHL and despite joining the team late, never seemed to have any problems adapting to the collegiate game. Lind played in 32 games, scoring a goal with 10 assists and was +7 for the year. Not quite as physical as his counterpart, Johns, the Illinois native will look to add that mean streak to his game in 2011-12. Strong on his skates, he moves the puck well and after a strong summer will look to take another step this season. Selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2010 NHL Draft, Lind has all the tools to be an outstanding collegiate defenseman and could see himself playing in a top four role this year. Rounding out the sophomore class is Taker who checks in at 6-4, 197 pounds after adding 13 pounds to his frame since last September. More of an offensiveminded defender,Taker (pronouncedTacker) has excellent quickness and strong puck-handling skills that make him a threat offensively. As a freshman, he may have had the best start of the defensive group, getting off quickly with points in his first three games to open the year. He finished with a goal and eight assists for nine points in 31 games and was a solid +9 for the year. Taker will look to be more consistent every night this season and add some “growl” to his game. The experience that he gained a year ago will go a long way in helping him become a more complete player in his second year. The Irish added a pair of freshmen defensemen this season in Eric Johnson (Verona, Wis.) and Robbie Russo (Westmont, Ill.). Johnson is the brother of Irish goaltender Mike Johnson and is a strong defensive, defenseman. He split the 201011 season with the Wenatchee Wild of the North American Hockey League and the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League. In 19 games withWenatchee as the team captain, Johnson had two assists and 18 minutes in penalties. His rights were traded to Dubuque midway through the year where he had a goal and two assists with 24 penalty minutes in 33 games playing for former Irish volunteer assistant coach Jim Montgomery. At 6-1, 206 pounds, Johnson will look to become more physical, using his size and frame to his advantage. He has the tools to become a solid defenseman but needs to become more confident and consistent in his all-around game. Russo joins the Notre Dame roster after spending the past two seasons with the U.S. National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich. A talented, offensive-minded defender, the 6-0, 189-pound defenseman is strong on his skates and makes good decisions with the puck, playing with poise and confidence. A 2011 draft choice of the NewYork Islanders, Russo figures to be in the running to quarterback the Irish power play this season. A team captain with the U.S. Under-18 team a year ago, he was sixth in team scoring with four goals and 26 assists for 30 points. During his final season with the U.S. team, he helped them to gold medals at the Four Nations, Five Nations and Under-18 World Championships. At the World Championships, he was selected as one of the USA’s top three players. On the offensive side of the puck, the Irish return the nucleus of a team that tied for third in the nation with 151 goals, the most for a Notre Dame team since the 1989-90 season. The Irish were 10th in goals-per-game with 3.43, their highest mark since averaging 4.06 in 1990-91.

Junior defenseman Sam Calabrese led all Irish defensemen in scoring in 2010-11 and was an honorable mention all-CCHA selection.

Notre Dame returns nine of its top 12 scorers from last season led by the dynamic sophomore duo of T.J. Tynan (Orland Park, Ill.) and Anders Lee (Edina, Minn.). Those two accounted for 47 goals and 51 assists for 98 points. They are joined by senior Billy Maday (Burr Ridge, Ill.) and juniors Riley Sheahan (St. Catharine’s, Ont.) and Nick Larson (Apple Valley, Minn.) for the top five returning scorers. Maday will serve as a team captain along with Sean Lorenz and is coming off a season that saw him score 10 goals with 17 assists for 27 points while being +2 for the year. He will be moved from right wing back to center, his original positon he played in juniors. A strong skater, this gives him the opportunity to carry the puck up the middle of the ice and look to set his wingers up for scoring chances. A natural leader, Maday will look to pick up where he ended the 2010-11 season when he was one of the team’s top scorers down the stretch. Joining Maday at forward from the senior class are Patrick Gaul (Pittsburgh, Pa.), Rich Ryan (Toronto, Ont.) and Nick Condon (Wausau, Wis.). All three saw limited action last season and will look to get into the regular rotation at their respective spots. Gaul is a strong center iceman who is good on face offs and on the penalty kill. Ryan is a hard-working left wing who is a strong skater with a good shot. Condon moves back to forward, a position he played in juniors. He has lined up on defense in his first three seasons at Notre Dame. A speedy skater with good puck-handling skills, he gives the coaching staff some versatility as he can move back and forth between offense and defense if needed in a game. Leading the juniors are center Riley Sheahan and left wing Nick Larson with both players coming off strong seasons. Sheahan, a first-round draft choice of the Detroit Red Wings in 2010, continued to be an outstanding player at both ends of the ice as he scored five goals and added 17 assists for 22 points in 40 games. The talented center played some of the best hockey of his career in the final two months of the season and was a force in the NCAA Tournament. Strong on

He has all the tools - size and strength (6-2, 212 pounds), speed and quickness, great hands and a mind for the game. He is definitely a player that his teammates look to on the ice. Larson continued to see his game improve as a sophomore as he turned in career highs in goals (10), assists (9) and points (19) with two power-play goals and two game winners. A hard-working player, the Irish will be counting on bigger and better things from the 6-2, 207-pound portsider who has the ability to be a top power forward. Larson plays a physical style that makes him a force in front of the net and in the corners. Look for him to see time on the power play in front of the net, making things difficult for opposing defenders and goaltenders. Rounding out the forward ranks among the junior class

18

is right wing Kevin Nugent (New Canaan, Conn.). The 6-3, 198-pound forward is a competitive player who brings energy and a positive attitude to the Notre Dame roster. As a sophomore, Nugent saw limited playing time, getting into six games, picking up an assist. He will look to see more playing time this season by using his size to play a more physical style especially in the offensive end of the ice. The sophomore class brings six forwards to the lineup, all who played key roles in their rookie years in ’10-’11. The group produced 77 goals and 88 assists for 165 points with 17 power-play goals, four short-handed tallies and 12 game winners in their first season. Leading the group is speedy center T.J. Tynan who had a brilliant rookie season with 23 goals and 31 assists for 54 points to lead the CCHA and the nation’s freshmen in scoring. The Hockey Commissioner’s Association (HCA) national rookie of the year, the CCHA rookie of the year and one of Notre Dame’s two rookies of the year, Tynan can do it all. At 5-8, 167, he is the ultimate competitor with incredible hockey instincts and the ability to play at both ends of the ice. Tynan brings speed and a tenacity to the ice that opens the ice for his linemates. A magician with the puck, he has an incredible knack for finding the open man while also having the ability to score from anywhere on the ice. A third-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2011, the biggest obstacle Tynan faces in his second year is the fact that his opponents know who he is this year and will make it a priority to stop the top returning scorer on the Irish roster. While they are keeping an eye out forTynan, the opposition can’t forget left wing Anders Lee who teamed with Tynan to form a dynamic offensive freshman duo for the Irish in ’10-’11. Lee scored a team-high 24 goals and added 20 assists for 44 points. He tied for the team lead in power-play goals (6), added a short-handed goal and tied a Notre Dame single-season mark with seven game-winning goals. A dynamic player, Lee is a prototypical power forward with a blazing shot and a non-stop drive on the ice. At 6-3, 227 pounds he is a force to be reckoned with at both ends of the ice. A talented all-around athlete, he leads by example and will serve as an alternate captain in his second year. Like Tynan, Lee will have a bullseye on his back this year from opposing defenses but that won’t stop a player who has the drive to be one of the top players in the nation. Overshadowed by the success of Tynan and Lee are the four remaining sophomore forwards – right wings Bryan Rust (Novi, Mich.) and Mike Voran (Livonia, Mich.), left wing Jeff Costello (Milwaukee, Wis.) and center David Gerths (Ankeny, Iowa). Rust had a strong rookie season on the right side, picking up six goals and 13 assists for 19 points while seeing action in all situations. A proven scorer and playmaker, Rust brings speed to the lineup and has shown the ability to play in all situations and should be a factor on Irish special teams this year. At 5-11, 202, he will look to add a physical dimension to his game, making plays in the corners and along the boards while chipping in goals from the “dirty” areas around the crease. Voran also had a nice freshman year, notching 19 points on four goals and 15 assists while having the versatility to play anywhere in the lineup from a spot on the top line to a role on a checking line. Blessed with excellent hockey smarts, Voran can score goals or set them up and has the ability to make those around him better. He will look to take the next step in his game this season and become a key factor in the offense. The Irish will look for him to play a more physical style and develop a presence around the goal.

Playing on the left side is Jeff Costello who scored 12 goals and chipped in six assists for 18 points last season. He tied for the team lead with six power-play goals and had three game winners. The Milwaukee native plays a tough, hard-nosed physical game and doesn’t shy away from contact. Many of his goals come from around the front of the net. His style of play makes him an excellent candidate for time on the Notre Dame power play. The last member of the six-man sophomore class is Gerths who had a strong freshman year at center. He plays the game with an edge and doesn’t stray from the physical play. He gave the Irish a scoring threat on the fourth line as a rookie, notching eight goals with three assists for 11 points. Gerths works hard and wants to get better. He will look to play with more poise to avoid getting frustrated during games, taking him out of his style of play. He showed good hands around the net and is definitely a player who makes himself at home in front of opposing goaltenders. After having six rookie forwards a year ago, just three dot the roster this season. Garrett Peterson (Manhattan, Ill.), Peter Schneider (Vienna, Austria) and Austin Wuthrich (Anchorage, Alaska) will look to break into the lineup as freshmen and all three are right wings. Peterson is a high-energy player who plays a physical, nasty game. A strong skater with excellent speed, he’s a player who has the ability to get under the opposition’s skin. A product of the Lincoln Stars in the USHL, Peterson had 21 goals with 17 assists for 38 points while racking up 130 penalty minutes in 43 games. He plays an effective style with big hits that disrupt the opposition. Look for him to play a role on the Irish penalty killing unit. Schneider, a native of Austria, becomes the third European to play for Notre Dame, joining Swedes Calle Ridderwall and Robin Bergman. He’s a gifted-goal scorer with great wheels and an excellent shot. Schneider played last season for the Indiana Ice in the USHL where he had 30 goals and 24 assists for 54 points in 55 games. Like all goal scorers, he has great instincts and knows how to make plays. He can be a factor in 2011-12 if he can adapt quickly to the college game and learn to play at both ends of the ice. Wuthrich rounds out the Notre Dame roster. He’s a young player who came through the U.S. National program but missed most of last season with a broken leg suffered early in the season. He finished with three goals and five assists in 18 games, splitting time between the Under-17 and Under-18 teams. The Alaska native will look to work his way into the lineup this season and continue to develop all aspects of his game. He caught the eye of the Irish coaching staff while playing for Team Illinois two years ago. Wuthrich is a strong skater with good instincts on the ice and the ability to make plays. He will just need to be patient but be ready to go when his time comes. As usual, the Irish play an ambitious schedule that includes 28 CCHA contests with non-league tilts versus MinnesotaDuluth, Boston College, Northeastern, Boston University and Minnesota on the docket. Jackson and his staff are ready to get the season started. “We will need to be more consistent this year and learn to deal with adversity better than we did last season,” says Jackson. “Playing with poise when things aren’t going our way is something that we need to work on. We learned that the hard way last year when penalties hurt us in key situations.” “Our youth and enthusiasm made this a special team a year ago. I want to keep that feeling around the team and use our experiences to make us a better team. I really liked the way we played last year and believe we can be an even better team this season.” 10/24/11 1:31 PM

2011-12 NCAA Ice Hockey Rules Points of Emphasis The NCAA Ice Hockey Rules Committee believes that all the rules in place are important and need to be enforced as written. However, there are several elements of the game that the committee requests additional attention: Targeting - In some cases, it was misunderstood that "targeting" the head and neck was only to be reserved for a player who intentionally delivered contact in this area. That is not the case. Targeting and directly contacting the head and neck area should clearly be a major penalty and at least a game misconduct. But targeting is not a requirement for this rule to be enforced. In fact, this concept was not included in this rule because it is nearly impossible for an official to judge intent. Blindside/Unsuspecting players - The committee notes the importance of the following existing language in the rules book: "A player delivering a check to an unsuspecting and vulnerable player puts themselves in jeopardy of being penalized under this rule." The committee views this portion of the rule as similiar to the hitting from behind standard. the responsibility lies with the player delivering the contact. Additional Guidance Situations - Currently, there are several points in the rules intended to illustrate situations where players are vulnerable or types of contact may lead to a penalty under this rule. As additional guidance, the committee approved the following situations to add to the list, which is on page HR-62 of the 2011-12 rules book: • A player that is reckless. • A player that is about to receive a pass. • Direct contact with the head or neck from any direction. Overall Enforcement - The committee believes the 2010-11 season was a good start with the understanding and enforcement of this rule. As with any safety-related rule, the intended result is to change player behavior. The committee understands how difficult it can be to make this call in the moment at full speed and continues to instruct officials to gather and communicate before making the penalty determination. While the penalty is severe, the long-term impact of changing the standard of acceptable contact should not be discounted. If officials have any of the ingredients listed in the rules book, the contact to the head penalty must be enforced. Embellishment/Diving - According to the results of the rules survey data, this issue is clearly a concern of coaches. The committee decided to make these actions a point of emphasis, instructing officials to stringently enforce this penalty on any player who blatantly dives, embellishes a fall or feigns an injury. These penalties may be enforced independently, together or in conjunction with another penalty (e.g., hooking on Team A, embellishment on Team B). It is also important to note that the rules that deal with obstruction and protection of the puck carrier remain in full effect. Any deviation from a strict enforcement standard in these areas can contribute to embellishment and diving by players who are fouled but no penalty is called. This is also an ethical issue that the committee expects coaches to reinforce with players for the betterment of the game. Obstruction Along The Boards - Players are allowed to “press and release” along the boards, and use the free hand to guide an opponent for this purpose. A player that holds or impedes in any manner must be called for obstruction, but the initial press and release is a legal play. Facewashing Reminder - Rule 6-14-a on page HR-64 clearly defines facewashing, which occurs most often after a stoppage of play. The committee continues to see the need for stringent enforcement and notes this action deals directly with respect and sportsmanship. The rule and penalties are listed below as a reminder: • Accidental/Incidental contact with the hand on an opponent’s facemask: NO penalty. • Placing a hand on the opponent’s facemask: MINOR penalty. •Placing and moving the hand back and forth (facewashing): MAJOR penalty. • Grasping and pulling/twisting the opponent’s facemask: DISQUALIFICATION penalty.

Head Coach Jeff Jackson Head Coach Seventh Season at Notre Dame Michigan State '78

Notre Dame hockey coach Jeff Jackson enters his seventh season directing the Irish hockey program. In his first six years, the program has had some of its greatest moments. When Notre Dame went looking for a new hockey coach following the 2004-05 campaign, the University searched for a man who could move the program among the elite hockey schools in the country. The search took them in one direction - Jeff Jackson. The veteran coach owned a resume packed with success at the collegiate, junior hockey, professional and international levels. Throughout his coaching career, Jackson’s teams had been successful both on and off the ice and the hope was that he could deliver those same qualities for the Irish. After six seasons as the guiding force behind the Notre Dame bench, its safe to say that the Irish hit a home run with the selection of Jackson. In that span, Notre Dame has become one of the nation’s top teams, winning the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s (CCHA) regular season and tournament titles twice - taking both titles in 2006-07 and 2008-09 - and has made four trips to the NCAA Tournament (2006-09, 2010-11), advancing to the NCAA Frozen Four twice, playing in the 2008 title game and the 2011 semifinals. Over the past five seasons, Jackson’s icers are among the winningest programs in the nation in wins and winning percentage, going 128-60-23 (.661) since the start of the 2006-07 campaign. Between ‘06-’09, the Irish turned in win totals of 32, 27 and 31 for three consecutive seasons of 25-or more wins and three NCAA tournament appearances for the first time in the program’s 44-year history. Jackson’s recent success on the ice also has helped off the ice. With the wins have come a commitment from the University that has led to a new home - The Compton Family Ice Arena that the team will move into this season. The Irish will go into their brand new building coming off a magical run to the Frozen Four in ‘10-’11. During last season, the Irish bounced back from a disappointing ‘09-’10 campaign to go 25-14-5 overall while leading the CCHA until the final week of the season. Notre Dame was 18-7-3-2 in the conference and finished second to Michigan by two points. After dropping both games in the CCHA Tournament, the Irish got hot in the NCAA’s, winning the Northeast Regional with wins over Merrimack (4-3 in overtime) and New Hampshire (2-1) to advance to the Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minn. There, Notre Dame fell in the semifinals to eventual

Jeff Jackson is the fourth head coach in the 44-year modern history of the Notre Dame hockey program. In 12 seasons as a Division I head coach, Jackson owns a 323-131-52 career record and his .691 winning percentage is the best among active coaches. champion, Minnesota-Duluth, with a 4-3 loss. The key to Irish success in ‘10-’11 was the infusion of youth as 12 freshmen dotted the roster with as many as 11 of them playing on any given night. Jackson and his staff were able to mesh the energy of youth with solid veteran leadership to turn the Irish around from their ‘09-’10 season and return Notre Dame to the national picture last year. For his efforts, the veteran coach was selected as the CCHA’s coach of the year for the third time (‘90-’91, ‘06-’07 and ‘10’11) and was a finalist for the Spencer Penrose Award as the national coach of the year. In 2009-10, Notre Dame battled injuries and struggled to score all year long on the way to a 13-17-8 overall record and a 9-12-7-2 mark in the CCHA that put the Irish ninth in the conference. Prior to that, Notre Dame was one of the top programs in the nation over a three-year span. The ‘08-’09 campaign was a year to remember as Notre Dame won its second conference and playoff title in three years. A slow start left the team with a 2-3-0 record. It would then be three months before the Irish would lose again as they went on a 20-game unbeaten streak (17-0-3) from Oct. 31 to Jan. 17, while being number one in the nation for seven consecutive weeks for the second time in the program’s history. After seeing the streak stopped, Notre Dame would lose just one more time during the ‘08-’09 regular season. The Irish ended the regular season and the CCHA tournament on a 10-game winning streak. Notre Dame finished first in the conference with a 21-4-3-3 mark, eight points ahead of second-place Miami and Michigan. The Irish advanced to Joe Louis Arena for the third consecutive year by beating Nebraska-Omaha in the second round of the playoffs. The Irish then knocked off Northern Michigan, 2-1, in the semifinals and rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat Michigan for the CCHA title in a 5-2 victory. Notre Dame went into the NCAA Tournament as the top seed in the Midwest Regional and was upset in the opening round by Bemidji State, 5-1.

In six seasons behind the Notre Dame bench, Jeff Jackson has guided the Irish to a 141-79-27 record. Over that span, Notre Dame has won two CCHA regular-season and tournament titles (2007 and 2009), and made four NCAA appearances, advancing to the Frozen Four in 2008 and 2011.

While the ending wasn’t quite what Jackson and his team were hoping for, the year would go down as one of the most successful for the Irish. The 31 wins were the second most ever at Notre Dame and the Irish had the lowest goals-against average in the nation (1.71) for the second time in three years. The stingy defense resulted in a nation-leading nine shutouts while the Irish power-play led the country by scoring at a 22.6% clip.

For the first time since the 1976-77 season, Notre Dame had two players selected AllAmerican as defenseman Ian Cole took first team honors and Erik Condra, second team honors. In 2007-08, the Irish were 27-16-4 on the year and finished fourth in the CCHA with a 15-9-4 mark. They advanced to the CCHA Tournament in Detroit, but scored just twice at Joe Louis Arena in an overtime loss to Miami in the semifinals and a third-place loss to Northern Michigan. The last at-large team to make the NCAA tournament, the Notre Dame offense came to life when it counted. Advancing to the NCAA West Regional, the Irish knocked off New Hampshire, 7-3, in the first game of the regional and then stopped Michigan State, 3-1, to win the region, becoming the first fourth-seeded team to advance to the Frozen Four. At the Frozen Four, Jackson’s squad upset No. 1-ranked Michigan, 5-4, in overtime to move to the national championship game versus Boston College. The Eagles ended

the magical ride with a 4-1 victory in Denver. After going 13-19-4 in his first season behind the bench in 2005-06, Jackson’s ‘06-’07 team got the ball rolling towards Irish hockey success. During that season, Notre Dame set school records for overall wins (32) and CCHA victories (21) on the way to capturing the school’s first-ever CCHA regular-season and tournament champion-ships. For the first time in the program’s history, the Irish were ranked No. 1 in the nation, holding that lofty perch for seven straight weeks from Feb. 5 through March 25. They made their second appearance in the NCAA tournament (first as a No. 1 seed) and won their first tournament game. For his successful season behind the Irish bench, Jackson was named the CCHA coach-of-the-year and the winner of the Spencer Penrose Award as the national coach-of-the-year. In just six seasons guiding the Irish, Jackson has seen the program go from five wins to 13 victories in his first season, to 138 wins over the last five years. For his tenure behind the Notre Dame bench, Jackson is 141-79-27 for a .624 winning percentage. During his first two years behind the bench, Jackson’s teams made 15- and 19-point improvements in the conference standings, going from last in ‘04-’05 to eighth in ‘05-’06 to first during the ‘06-’07 season. That two-season jump made the Irish just the third team in CCHA history to go from worst-to-

first over a two-year span. The 56-year-old bench boss took over the Notre Dame hockey program on May 6, 2005 as the fourth coach since the program’s Division I inception in 1968. For Jackson, it was a return to his roots – coaching at the collegiate level – where he got his start behind the bench at Lake Superior State. He inherited a team that struggled through a difficult 5-27-6

season in 2004-05 and had lost confidence in itself. The Roseville, Mich., native and his staff went right to work to change the team’s attitude and perception. They made giant strides on and off the ice in that first season directing the team’s fortunes. After a slow start (3-9-1), his players began to buy into what the new coach was selling and the Irish finished the year with a 10-10-3 mark over the final 23 games. In CCHA play, the Irish showed a 15-point improvement over ‘04-’05 – going from 3-20-5 to 11-13-4 – good for eighth place in the league and the final home-ice spot in the CCHA playoffs. Only Miami made a bigger jump in ‘05-’06 with a 16-point improvement. In Jackson’s first six seasons, the Irish have played with poise and discipline, relying on team defense, strong goaltending and excellent special teams play. They also laid the foundation for future seasons with major success on the recruiting trail. Since Jackson’s arrival, the Irish have had 19 players selected in the National Hockey League Entry Draft, including four in the first round. In that same span, 13 players from USA Hockey’s National Team Developmental Program have matriculated to Notre Dame, not to mention several players who have been junior hockey all-stars in both the United States and Canada. Over the past five years, Jackson has seen his teams lead the nation in team defense twice, (1.63 goals against in ‘06-’07 and 1.71 in ‘08-’09), penalty killing (.904 success rate in ‘06’07) and the power play (22.6% in ‘08-’09). Jackson heads into the 2011-12 season with a 12-year collegiate record of 323-131-52 for a .691 winning percentage, the best percentage among all Division I coaches with five years or more in Division I. His 323 career wins ranks 10th among active coaches. Success is nothing new for Jackson on the Division I level. He returned to college hockey in ‘05-’06 after nine years away. In six years at Lake Superior State, Jackson’s teams won two NCAA titles in 1992 and 1994 (also advancing to the finals in 1993), two CCHA regular-season championships (‘91 and ‘96) and four CCHA playoff trophies (‘91, ‘92, ‘93 and ‘95). His 1992-93 team also advanced to the NCAA championship game, losing a 5-4 decision to Maine. In taking over the Irish coaching duties in ‘05, Jackson became the first Notre Dame head coach to have won an NCAA

Division I championship with another program before being hired as an Irish head coach. In making the announcement of Jackson’s hiring, then Notre Dame director of athletics, Kevin White said, “Jeff Jackson has a first-hand appreciation of exactly what it takes to be successful at the very highest level of the collegiate hockey world. His accomplishments at Lake Superior State in winning multiple NCAA titles – combined with his work and connections from the United States national developmental program and from the professional level – provide him a solid foundation from which to lead the Notre Dame hockey program.” The highly regarded Jackson brings over 24 years of coaching experience to the Irish as an assistant and a head coach at the NCAA Division I level, on the international level with the U.S. national program, in major junior hockey and at the National Hockey League level. A 1978 graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in communications, Jackson followed with a degree in education in 1979. Jackson got his start in college hockey as an assistant coach at Lake Superior State in 1986 where he served four years under Frank Anzalone, helping guide the Lakers to one CCHA championship and the 1988 NCAA title. When Anzalone moved to the professional ranks following the 1989-90 season, Jackson took over as the head coach of the Lakers and in a six-year span (1991-96), guided them to six consecutive NCAA appearances, including three straight trips to the title game from 1992 through 1994. In his first season behind the Lakers’ bench, Jackson’s squad was 33-10-3 overall and 26-2-4 in league play, winning the CCHA regular-season and tournament titles. They lost in the NCAA quarterfinals to Clarkson, two games to one. A year later, Lake Superior State ran off its second 30+ win season under Jackson, going 30-9-4 on the year, while finishing second in the league with a 20-8-4 mark. The Lakers proceeded to knock off Alaska Anchorage and Minnesota in the regionals before beating Michigan State (4-2) in the semifinals and Wisconsin (5-3) in Albany, N.Y., in the first of three consecutive trips to the NCAA finals. The Lakers were 32-8-5 during the 1992-93 season and finished third in the CCHA with a 20-5-5 record. They captured the league’s tournament title by beating Miami, 3-0, in the finals at Joe Louis Arena. Lake Superior defeated MinnesotaDuluth in the West Regional to advance to the finals at Milwaukee, Wis. There, the Lakers defeated Boston University in the semifinals and then faced Maine, led by Paul Kariya and Jim Montgomery, in the finals. A third-period rally by the Black Bears gave them a 5-4 win. Lake Superior didn’t dwell on the loss for long as the Lakers’ success continued with a 31-10-4 record and a second-place CCHA finish in 1993-94. After losing to Michigan in the CCHA

Tom Nevala is in his 17th year as a member of the athletics administration at Notre Dame and his third as senior associate athletics director for business operations and youth programming. He also has added the duties of general manager of the Compton Family Ice Arena to his resume this year. In his present role, he oversees all financial matters for the Notre Dame athletics department as well as the newly defined area of youth programming, including

summer camps, clinics and a special initiative that will focus on using the University’s assets to better serve the sports and recreational needs of underserved youth. He also has played a key role in the planning and design of the new ice arena that will be the home of the Irish hockey team beginning in late October. The hard-working administrator begins his 12th season serving as the day-to-day administrative contact for the Irish hockey program. He represents Notre Dame on the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Council and has served as chair of the CCHA’s executive committee (2006-07) and currently sits on the CCHA’s strategic planning committee. Following the 2007-08 campaign, he was awarded the hockey program’s Honorary Alumni Award that is presented each year to a person who while not an alum of the program, made major contributions due to their affiliation with the hockey program. Nevala led the effort for Notre Dame to partner with Fort Wayne to host the Midwest Regional during the 2010 NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament. He is in his third year of a four-year term serving as the CCHA’s representative on the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee. Active in campus matters, Nevala is a member of the University’s equity in athletics task force, served on the continuous improvement departmental assessment

team, represents athletics on the campus information technology subcommittee, and is a member of the University’s business managers group. Nevala spent five years as the business manager for athletics, following time as business manager of the Joyce Center and two years as director of the Varsity Shop and ice rink manager for that facility. During the 1999-2000 academic year, Nevala coordinated the effort to form the Notre Dame alumni football team that traveled to Germany in July of 2000 and defeated the Hamburg Blue Devils in the Charity Bowl. He also served as tournament director of the 1997 BIG EAST Men’s Golf Championship. A 1990 Notre Dame graduate with a degree in aerospace engineering, Nevala returned to the University in the fall of that year to attend graduate school and work in the athletics business office.

Born Jan. 25, 1968, he is married to the former Jen Turgeon, a 1993 St. Mary’s graduate and a native of Brunswick, Maine. They have two children, a daughter, Sofia (6), and a son, Benjamin (4).

Dave Gilbert enters his 13th season as equipment manager at Notre Dame — but is no stranger to head coach Jeff Jackson. One of the premier equipment specialists in college hockey, Gilbert was a member of Jackson’s 1991-92 NCAA title team as a walk-on goaltender at Lake Superior State. The Marquette, Mich., native served as a backup to a pair of eventual NHL goaltenders – Darrin Madeley and Blaine Lacher – during that championship season. During his final four years as an undergraduate, Gilbert worked for the Lakers hockey program as a student equipment manager. In that capacity, he was associated with the NCAA runner-up squad in 199293, the NCAA championship team of ’93-’94, and two other teams that reached the NCAA quarterfinals (’94-’95 and ’95-’96). Gilbert’s year-long responsibilities involve overseeing the equipment and travel needs of the Irish hockey program. He graduated from Lake Superior State in May of ’96, with a degree in exercise science, but remained at the school for the next two years as the head equipment manager for the school’s 11 varsity sports.

During his time with the Lakers hockey program, Gilbert was associated with several individuals who remain active in hockey at other levels. Gilbert served under head equipment manager Paul Boyer at Lake Superior State in ’92-’93, with Boyer now holding the position of head equipment manager for the Detroit Red Wings. Besides being reunited with Jackson in ‘05-’06, Gilbert also rejoined associate head coach Paul Pooley who was also a member of Jackson’s staff at Lake Superior from 1992-94 while Gilbert played and worked for the Lakers. During the summer of 2005, Gilbert was a member of the equipment staff at USA Hockey’s Junior National Team tryout camp, held in Lake Placid, N.Y., in August. At the hockey team’s 2009 postseason awards program, Gilbert was selected to receive the team’s Honorary Alumni Award that is presented each year to a person who, while not an alum of the program, made major contributions due to their affiliation with the hockey program. Gilbert, and his wife Heather have one son, Dolan (10), and a daughter, Halle (9). They reside in South Bend.

The Coleman-Morse Center is the home to Notre Dame’s Academic Services for Student-Athletes. The center houses classrooms, staff offices, a tutoring center, a computer cluster, workrooms and a lounge that are available to all Notre Dame students. The Academic Services for Student-Athletes Office is designed to help Notre Dame fulfill its commitment to all student-athletes in their pursuit of a college degree and academic excellence. In order to achieve these goals, Academic Services has four major aims: to maintain the academic integrity of the University; to comply with University and NCAA rules and regulations; to maintain the academic good standing of every student-athlete; and to assist every studentathlete to graduate in four years. These objectives work together and are aimed at teaching student-athletes to be responsible for themselves academically.

they can meet regularly with their professors and use support services provided by the various colleges and departments. As soon as student-athletes begin classes, Academic Services monitors their progress through professor surveys that ask professors to comment on each student’s work level, attendance and any need for tutorial help. If a professor or student-athlete feels there is need for additional help, Academic Services provides tutorial assistance. In addition to this interaction with the faculty, the members of the Academic Services Office meet with student-athletes to develop a personal relationship. These sessions help develop semester-long and career academic goals. Discussions may include such topics as summer-school attendance, class scheduling and career possibilities. In 2001, the Academic-Services department received a new home through a generous donation by football alumnus Jim Morse (’57) and his wife, Leah Rae, when the Coleman-Morse Center was completed.

Dave Gilbert Hockey Equipment Manager Senior Eric Ringel begins his second season with the Notre Dame coaching staff as an undergraduate student assistant coach. The former Irish defenseman saw his playing career cut short due to a concussion and concussion-like symptoms that forced him to retire from the game. As an undergraduate assistant, Ringel will remain involved with the team, assisting the Notre Dame coaching staff with a wide variety of duties on a daily basis. Ringel earned his first monogram during the 200910 season when he broke into the regular lineup as one of the team’s top six defensemen. In 17 games, he picked up one assist with one penalty for two minutes. He was +3 on the year with eight shots on goal. The Hinckley, Ohio native was injured on Dec. 5, 2009 at Miami when he was run into the boards and received a concussion. The concussion-lile symptoms prevented him from returning to the lineup the remainder of the season and he was not given clearance by doctors to return to play. In two seasons at Notre Dame, Ringel played in 23 games with one assist and was +4 for his career. A quick, mobile defenseman, Ringel joined the Irish after playing two seasons with the Mahoning Valley Phantoms of the North American Hockey League. In ‘07-’08, he scored seven goals with 20 assists for 27 points in 50 games, helping the Phantoms to a 36-184 record in the North Division. The team advanced to the NAHL championship game where they lost to St. Louis and fellow Irish teammates Nick Condon and Mike Johnson. In his first year in Mahoning Valley, the 20-year old Ringel scored 10 goals with 15 assists for 25 points in 51 games as the Phantoms were 47-14-1 and captured the North Division title. During the ‘06-’07 campaign, he played for USA Hockey’s Under-17 Select Team at the Four Nations Tournament and the Vlad Dzurilla Tournament in Feb. of 2007. Born April 4, 1990 in Cleveland, Ohio, Ringel is a finance major in the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame.

Season In Review Irish Return To The Frozen Four In 2010-11 Young Notre Dame team falls in semifinals in St. Paul; finishes year fourth in the nation.

The Irish celebrate their NCAA Northeast Region victory over New Hampshire. The win sent Notre Dame to the Frozen Four for the second time in the last four years. SECOND TIME – Notre Dame made its second appearance in the last four seasons in the NCAA Frozen Four during the 2010-11 season. The Irish won the NCAA Northeast Regional with wins over Merrimack (4-3 in ot) and New Hampshire (2-1) to advance to St. Paul, Minn. The Irish dropped a 4-3 decision to eventual champion Minnesota-Duluth on Thursday, April 7 at the Xcel Energy Center. UMD would go on to defeat Michigan in overtime, 3-2, in the national title game. The last time the Irish were in the Frozen Four was in 2008 when they advanced to the championship game against Boston College, dropping a 4-1 decision. All-time, Notre Dame is 1-2 in Frozen Four action. FINAL RANKINGS – Notre Dame finished the season ranked fourth in both the USA Today/ American Hockey Magazine poll and the USCHO. com poll. That is the second highest finish for the Irish in the program’s 43-year history as they finished the year ranked third following the 2007-08 season - the team’s last trip to the Frozen Four. NATIONAL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR – Freshman center T.J. Tynan was named the Hockey Commissioner’s Association (HCA) national rookie of the year during the 2010-11 season. Tynan led the Irish in scoring with 23 goals and 31 assists for 54 points on the season. Those totals were tops among CCHA freshmen and all freshmen in the nation. The 5-8, 156-pound center finished the year tied

72

for seventh in the nation in scoring. He also was selected as Notre Dame’s team most valuable player and was the CCHA rookie of the year. CCHA COACH OF THE YEAR – For the second time in his first six seasons at Notre Dame, head coach Jeff Jackson was selected as the CCHA coach of the year. He also won the honor following the 2006-07 season. He has now won the honor three times in his coaching career, also winning the honor in 1990-91 at Lake Superior State. Jackson was also a finalist for the Spencer Penrose Trophy that goes to the top coach in the nation, an award that he won in 2006-07. The veteran head coach is now 14179-27 (.624) in his six seasons at Notre Dame. His Irish teams have won two CCHA regular season and postseason titles (2007 and 2009), advanced to the NCAA Tournament four times and appeared in two NCAA Frozen Fours (2008 and 2011). CCHA HONORS – Several members of the Irish hockey team were honored by the CCHA for their play during the 2010-11 season. Freshman T.J. Tynan was named the CCHA rookie of the year after leading the league’s rookies in scoring. Junior defenseman Sean Lorenz (Littleton, Colo.) was named the league’s top defensive defenseman as he led all players with a +27 for the year. Head coach Jeff Jackson was named the conference’s coach of the year as the Irish rebounded from nine league wins in 2009-10 to 18 in ‘10-’11, and they

did it with as many as 10 freshmen per night in the lineup. Prior to the major awards, Tynan and fellow freshman Anders Lee (Edina, Minn.) were unanimous selections to the CCHA all-rookie team. Defenseman Stephen Johns (Wampum, Pa.) was an honorable mention all-rookie selection. Senior left wing Calle Ridderwall (Stockholm, Sweden) was Notre Dame’s choice for the CCHA all-academic team. Tynan and Lee also were chosen second team all-CCHA. Defenseman Sam Calabrese (So., Park Ridge, Ill.) was an honorable mention all-CCHA selection and senior right wing Ryan Guentzel (Woodbury, Minn.) was the only other Notre Dame player to receive votes. Lee was Notre Dame’s winner of the Perani Cup for most points in threestar balloting following CCHA games. ALL-TOURNAMENT HONORS – Four Irish players were selected to the NCAA Northeast Regional all-tournament team. Forwards Anders Lee and Billy Maday (Burr Ridge, Ill.) were joined by defenseman Stephen Johns and goaltender Mike Johnson (Verona, Wis.). Johnson, who stopped 69-of-71 shots he faced in the regional, was named the Northeast Regional’s most valuable player. A CLASS ACT – Notre Dame senior left wing Calle Ridderwall was named one of 10 finalists for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award that honors student athletes who excel both on and off the

ice and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. Former Notre Dame goaltender David Brown ‘07 won the award in 2007. DYNAMIC DUO – Freshman Anders Lee finished the season with 24 goals, while fellow frosh T.J. Tynan was right behind him with 23 on the year. This marks the first time that Notre Dame has had two 20-goal scorers in one season since 1990-91 when Lou Zadra ‘92 had 24 goals and Mike Curry ‘92 added 20 for the Irish. Lee’s 24 goals are the most by a Notre Dame player since Aniket Dhadphale ‘99 scored 25 during the 1997-98 season. Tynan became the first player to record 50 points in a season since 1991-92 when Curtis Janicke ‘93 scored 50 points. His 54 points are the most by a Notre Dame players since 1989-90 when David Bankoske ‘93 had 56. For the season, the dynamic duo combined for seven CCHA rookie of the week honors (Tynan - 4, Lee - 3), four CCHA rookie of the month honors (Lee - 3, Tynan -1), one CCHA player of the month award (Tynan) and two national Hockey Commissioner’s Association (HCA) rookies of the month (Lee -1, Tynan -1). Tynan was named the CCHA Rookie of the Year and the HCA National Rookie of the Year. He and Lee were both selected to the CCHA all-rookie team and were second team all-CCHA selections. GETTING OFFENSIVE – Notre Dame finished the 2010-11 season tied for third in the nation in goals

scored with 151 in 44 games. The Irish trailed North Dakota (178), Boston College (153) and tied Yale (151). Per game, Notre Dame ranked 10th overall with a 3.43 average. Yale was tops in the nation with 4.19 per game. The 3.43 goals-per-game is the most for the Irish since 1990-91 when they averaged 4.06 per game. The 151 goals is the most since 1989-90 when that team scored 151 goals. MR. CLUTCH – Freshman left wing Anders Lee had a banner rookie year for the Irish in 201011. He led the team with 24 goals and was tied for the team lead with six power-play goals. His seven game winners were tops on the team and among CCHA players and ties him for second in the nation. His seven game winners were the most by a Notre Dame player since 1989-90 when David Bankoske ‘93 had seven that season. That ties Lee for Notre Dame’s single-season record in that category with Bankoske. 20-WIN SEASON – Notre Dame concluded the 2010-11 season with a record of 25-14-5, giving the Irish 12 more wins than the previous year when they were 13-17-8. The 20-win season is the 11th in the 43-year history of the program, and the Irish have now won 20 or more games in four of the last five seasons. The 25 wins are the fifth-best win total in the program’s history. CAREER YEAR – Senior right wing Ryan Guentzel (Woodbury, Minn.) had the best game of his career with three goals and an assist in a win over Canisius (Dec. 29). He finished the season ranked third on the team in scoring with six goals and 33 assists for 39 points, all career highs. His previous best season was 2008-09 when he had four goals and seven assists for 11 points. He

finished the season tied for seventh in the CCHA in scoring with 39 points, and his 33 assists ranked third in the conference. SHORT-HANDED SUCCESS – Notre Dame finished the 2010-11 season with 13 short-handed goals to tie for the national lead with Boston College. The 13 shorties were the most by an Irish team since they had 19 during the 1981-82 season. Notre Dame’s 13 short-handed goals were scored by 10 different players with T.J. Tynan and two defensemen - Sam Calabrese and Joe Lavin (Sr., Shrewsbury, Mass) - getting two each. Seven other Irish players had one short-handed goal each. SELECT COMPANY – Irish goaltender Mike Johnson finished the 2010-11 season with a record of 20-10-4. The 20 wins make him just the sixth goaltender in Notre Dame history to record 20 or more wins in a season. He joins Jordan Pearce ‘09, who had 30 in 2008-09; David Brown ‘07 (29 in 2006-07); Lance Madson ‘90 (24 in 1987-88), Pearce (23, in 2007-08) and Mark Kronholm ‘74 (20 in 1972-73). Johnson’s 20 win ties him for fifth on the single-season win list with Kronholm. In two seasons with the Irish, Johnson has a 30-23-9 career record. HOME SWEET HOME – The 2010-11 season was the final full season for the Irish at the Joyce Center as they will open their new arena, the Compton Family Ice Arena, during the 2011-12 season. In the final full season at the Joyce, the Irish were 13-4-2 on home ice. Notre Dame has won 13 at home six times in the past, and its the third highest total in the program’s 43 seasons.

Rick Schofield and Domenic Monardo each had a goal for Lake Superior ... the win was the second straight for the Irish who improved to 3-1-0 overall and 2-0-0 in CCHA play, as the Lakers fell to 0-3-1 on the year and 0-2-0 in the conference ... the Irish wasted little time getting on the scoreboard as they scored twice in the first 2:49 of the game to build a 2-0 lead ... Ridderwall started the Notre Dame attack when he scored his second goal in as many nights at the 2:04 mark to stake the Irish to a 1-0 lead ... just 45 seconds later, the lead would go to 2-0 as Tynan beat goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson with a nice move in front at 2:49 for his second of the season ... as quick as the Irish scored twice, Lake Superior cut the lead in half just 33 seconds later at 3:22 when Schofield whipped a backhander from the slot through a screen and between Irish goaltender Mike Johnson’s pads for his third of the year ... the score would stay that way until the

13:02 mark when Ryan converted a pretty passing play for his first goal of the season to make it a 3-1 lead ... the Lakers battled back to score early in the second on a fluky play as Monardo’s shot from the right side hit the right post and deflected off the back of an Irish defender and into the goal, cutting the Notre Dame lead to 3-2 just 44 seconds into the second period ...from there, the Irish nursed the lead, relying on the steady goaltending of Johnson; who would finish with 26 saves in the game ...

Tynan and Bryan Rust that helped set up Ridderwall’s first goal of the night at 6:44 ... Tynan was able to force a turnover to the right of Muse and was able to move the puck to Ridderwall in the slot where he one-timed a wrister shot into a wide-open net for his third of the season and a 1-1 tie ... Ridderwall’s second goal came on a 5-on-3 power play chance, and the senior left wing put the Irish ahead at the 17:11 mark when he drilled a shot past Muse from the slot ... from there, it was up to Johnson to guard the lead and shut down the high-flying Eagles, and he was able to slam the door in the third period ... the Irish finished the game outshooting Boston College by a 34-29 margin ... Johnson finished with 28 saves on the night while Muse had 32 ... the Notre Dame win over Boston College was the fifth for the Irish in the last seven meetings against the Eagles since the 2003-04 season ... BC leads the all-time series with a 16-12-2 record ... the win for Notre Dame was just the third at the Joyce Center in the series as the Eagles lead, 7-3-1.

National prominence and national dominance are what separates the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) from the rest of college hockey. The conference opens its second season with 11 teams following the departure of Nebraska-Omaha to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association following the 2009-10 season. The CCHA is coming off a season that saw two of its teams - Notre Dame and Michigan - advance to the NCAA Frozen Four for the second time in the last four seasons. To date, CCHA teams have won eight NCAA championships over the last 28 years with the last win coming in the 2007 title game by Michigan State. The Spartans’victory was their second national title as they also won the 1986 championship. They join Bowling Green (1984), Lake Superior State – winners of the most titles as a CCHA-member team (1988, 1992 and 1994) – and Michigan (1996, 1998). The Wolverines own a total of nine NCAA titles, the most in the nation. Northern Michigan also won the crown in 1991 as a member of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. Besides the eight NCAA champions, the CCHA has seen its teams reach the NCAA’s Frozen Four 22 times in those same 28 seasons, with Michigan (9) and Michigan State (7) leading the way. For the fourth consecutive year, CCHA teams advanced to the Frozen Four with Notre Dame and Michigan advancing in 2010-11. The Irish fell to Minnesota-Duluth in the semifinals while Michigan lost to the Bulldogs in the title game. In 2010, Miami fell in the semifinals to Boston College and the previous year, the Red Hawks lost in the national title game to Boston University. In 2008, Notre Dame made its first-ever appearance in the finals, advancing with a 5-4 overtime win against Michigan to move to the national title game for the first time where they fell to Boston College. In 1992, the CCHA sent three teams to the Frozen Four with Lake Superior winning and Michigan and Michigan State each reaching the semifinals. In 2004, the league set an NCAA record by sending five teams to the NCAA tournament as Michigan, Miami, Ohio State, Michigan State and Notre Dame all advanced. For Notre Dame, it marked the first time in the program’s history that the Irish were selected for postseason play In each of the last two seasons, the conference has had four teams make the NCAA Tournament. In 2010-11, Notre Dame, Michigan, Miami and Western Michigan all advanced. In 2009-10, it was Miami, Michigan, Northern Michigan and for the first time, Alaska, all moving on in postseason play. The ‘10-’11 campaign also saw the league pick up its seventh Hobey Baker Memorial Award as Miami’s Andy Miele joined Michigan’s Kevin Porter (2008), Michigan State’s Ryan Miller (2001), Michigan’s Brendan Morrison (1996), Bowling Green’s Brian Holzinger (1995), Michigan State’s Kip Miller (1990) and Bowling Green’s George McPhee (1982), as winners of college hockey’s top award. The CCHA began in 1971-72 with four teams: Bowling Green, Ohio State and Ohio University from the Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association and an independent, St. Louis University. Lake Superior joined the league the following season and the league weathered the next two seasons after Ohio dropped its program and Ohio State became an independent. The CCHA began establishing its reputation as a haven for fledgling programs in 1975-76 when Western Michigan

joined the league. Ohio State rejoined that year and Northern Michigan’s arrival in 1977-78 brought the CCHA’s membership to six teams. After a season as a provisional member, Ferris State joined the league in 1979-80. St. Louis dropped its program the same year, leaving Bowling Green as the team with the longest tenure in the CCHA. Miami University joined the league in 1981-82 after spending 1980-81 as a provisional member. In 1981-82, the CCHA added four teams from the WCHA — Michigan, Michigan State, Michigan Tech and Notre Dame — raising its membership to 11 teams. The CCHA reached an all-time high of 12 teams in 1982-83, with the addition of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Notre Dame left the league in 1983-84, only to return 10 years later. Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan jumped to the WCHA in 1984-85, reducing the CCHA to nine teams where it would stay for eight seasons. In 1992-93, Kent State joined the league and Alaska Fairbanks began its three-year run as an affiliate. Kent State discontinued its program after two seasons while IllinoisChicago did the same after the 1995-96 season. Northern Michigan rejoined the conference in 1997-98, following 13 years as a member of the WCHA, bringing the CCHA membership to 11 teams. The 1999-2000 campaign marked the addition of a 12th member — the University of Nebraska Omaha — and a new look for the CCHA. With the Mavericks joining the CCHA, the league expanded its postseason tournament and reduced its conference schedule to 28 games to determine the regular-season champion. Things would stay the same until 2010-11. In 2011-12, each CCHA member will continue to play 28 conference games. This season, Notre Dame will play four games (two home and two away) versus Alaska, Bowling Green, Ferris State and Western Michigan with two games against Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State at home and two games versus Lake Superior, Miami and Northern Michigan on the road for its 28-game conference schedule. The playoff format will remain the same that was put in place in 2010-11 as the first five teams in the regular-season standings will receive a first-round bye. The remaining six teams will play a best-of-three series (11 vs. 6, 10 vs. 7 and 9 vs. 8) with the winners advancing to the second round. In the second round, the top three seeds will host the lowest remaining seed with fourth place facing fifth in a best-ofthree series with the four winners advancing to Joe Louis Arena for the CCHA Championship. In 2008-09, the CCHA became the first conference to adopt an NHL-style shootout to determine the winner of all 168 regular-season conference games that are tied after 60 minutes of regulation and five minutes of overtime. The shootout is used to decide CCHA games but count as ties overall to preserve the integrity of the national rankings. The CCHA has also approved the following point system for regular-season play: Three (3) points for a win in regulation or overtime, one (1) point for each school if the game is tied at the conclusion of the five-minute overtime period and one (1) point is awarded to the team who wins the shootout.

Irish Hockey History Notre Dame Hockey Enters A New Era In 2011-12 Irish icers set to open a new chapter as they move to the state-of-the-art Compton Family Ice Arena. THE EARLY YEARS From playing on frozen St. Joseph Lake on the Notre Dame campus, to South Bend’s Howard Park Rink, to their own 43-plus years at the Joyce Center and the program’s future home - the Compton Family Center this season, the Notre Dame hockey program has experienced a little bit of everything in its on-again, off-again 100-year history. While most followers of Notre Dame’s 44-year hockey history know the story since the program received Division I status in 1968, there are several earlier chapters that were the building blocks for the “Gold Standard” as we know it today. Notre Dame first played collegiate hockey in the 1912-13 academic year, playing three games. The inaugural game was played at Culver Military Academy on Feb. 19, 1913 with Notre Dame prevailing, 6-0. That first team went 1-2-0. After that first season, the program took a seven-year hiatus, returning again in 1919-20 under the guidance of two-time football All-American running back Paul Castner. The football standout served as player-coach from 1919-21 before serving as coach for two more seasons following his graduation. In four seasons at the helm, Castner’s teams were 18-4-0 while playing against the likes of Michigan College of Mines (now Michigan Tech), Carnegie Tech, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Culver Academy, St. Thomas and Assumption. Castner, however, was not the only football player to play a key role in the early days of the Notre Dame hockey program. All-American offensive lineman Hunk Anderson was the goaltender on the 1920-21 team. Anderson was followed by one of the most famous of all Irish athletes, Jim Crowley, who gained fame as the halfback in the Four Horsemen backfield. Crowley was a freshman goaltender on the 1921-22 team that went 8-1, but his career was put on ice, so to speak, by legendary football coach Knute Rockne. Crowley recorded a pair of shutouts and turned in a stingy 1.33 goals-against average in his lone season between the Irish pipes. Following Castner behind the Notre Dame bench was former football All-American Tom Leib. A twotime (1921 and 1922) All-American at right tackle, Leib’s teams were 3-8-3 between 1923-26. The team played one more season in 1926-27 under the guidance of Benjamin Dubois. That team went 3-7-1 before the program, due to lack of a playing venue, ceased competition. Despite sporadic attempts to revive the program from 1928 through the early 1960’s - including one game in which Heisman Trophy winner Angelo Bertelli was reported to have scored four goals Notre Dame hockey would not see consistent action until the 1963-64 season.

THE CLUB YEARS This began an era of hockey at Notre Dame that is sometimes forgotten. From 1963, until its return to Division I status for the 1968-69 season, the Irish sponsored a club hockey program that produced several of the players who would play key roles in the early varsity years of the program in the late 60’s. Around 1960, students organized, and the University recognized, the Notre Dame Hockey Club. Operating as a club sport, the team had a faculty advisor and reported to the director of intramurals and club sports, Dominic Napolitano. The club began intercollegiate play in the 1963-64 season. Arrangements were made to play on South Bend’s artificial rink (Howard Park) and campus-wide tryouts were held. Ralph Cardillo (Guelph, Ont.) served as the first captain and Paul Belliveau (Fitchburg, Mass.) notched the first goal. Playing club teams from Northwestern, the University of Illinois, the Michigan State junior varsity and other varsity squads from the Midwest, Notre Dame went 0-8-0 in that first season. In 1964-65, the club program improved to 5-6-0 under the guidance of coach Richard Bressler. The club also started an intramural program to give other students access to the game of hockey. Prior to the start of the 1965-66 season, the University’s administration determined that hockey was to enter a “transition” period and the program was formally designated as a“minor sport.” That designation was assigned to help the program in its transition from a club sport to full varsity status. The hockey program came under the direction of Notre Dame vice-president,

Rev. Edmund P. Joyce and athletics director, Edward “Moose” Krause. The 1965-66 team began to receive funding from the athletic department and continued to play teams from the Midwest (Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio State) and even branched out to the East Coast, participating in a Christmas Tournament at the Boston Garden. Under coach Jerry Paquette, the Irish were 6-9-3. The program really began to take shape in 1966-67, playing mostly varsity-level programs as a club team. The Irish played in the first-ever collegiate hockey tournament played at Chicago Stadium hosted by the Blackhawks and the Wirtz family. The Irish lost in the championship game to Ohio State, 6-5. Notre Dame also won the Air Force Invitational at the Broadmoor World Arena on the way to a 14-5-3 record. The Irish were led offensively by Phil Wittliff (Port Huron, Mich.), Belliveau, alternate captain Tom Heiden (St. Paul, Minn.), captain Jim Haley (Boston, Mass.), defensemen Eric Norri (Virginia, Minn.) and Frank Manning (Detroit, Mich.). Wittliff (who started his Notre Dame career on the football team), Norri and defenseman Dean Daigler (Tonawanda, N.Y.), would all go on to play on the first varsity team in 1968-69. Leo Collins (Fargo, N.D.), Ernie Gargaro (Bloomfied Hills, Mich.) and John Barry (Chicago, Ill.) were the team’s goaltenders. Norri and Collins were both members of Notre Dame’s 1966 national championship football team playing tackle and linebacker respectively. In 1967-68, the club team played its final season before moving to the Division I level.

The Notre Dame hockey teams of the 1920s included several well-known members of the school’s football team. The 1920-21 team (pictured above) featured goaltender Hunk Anderson (seated, second from left), an All-America offensive lineman in 1921 who served as head coach of the Notre Dame football program from 1931-33. Seated next to Anderson is Paul Castner (second from right), a two-time football All-American as a running back. Castner served as a player/coach for the Notre Dame hockey program from 1919-21 before coaching the team for two more seasons following his graduation. He also was an accomplished baseball player at Notre Dame.

Notre Dame Hockey Year-By-Year Results

The early days of the Irish hockey program depended on St. Joseph Lake being frozen. This photo from January of 1941 shows Irish hockey players skating on the snow-covered lake after clearing the ice with shovels. THE RETURN TO VARSITY STATUS The University hired Charles “Lefty” Smith as the program’s first coach for the 1968-69 season and the new Athletic and Convocation Center (later named the Joyce Center) opened, giving Notre Dame its first on-campus, indoor rink. Notre Dame competed as an independent from 1968-71, compiling a record of 50-32-6, providing Smith three seasons to build a competitive program before the Irish became members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA), beginning with the 1971-72 season. The Irish struggled to a 10-16-0 record in their first season in the WCHA and barely qualified for the playoffs, but the following year they proved they were capable of skating with the best college hockey teams in the nation. A 31-goal, 65-point effort from Eddie Bumbacco (Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.) led the WCHA in scoring and propelled the Irish to a series sweep of top-ranked Wisconsin. The team’s 19-9-0 conference record was good for a second-place finish in 1972-73. Smith was named WCHA coach of the year, while Bill Nyrop (Edina, Minn.) and Bumbacco became Notre Dame’s first hockey All-Americans. The Irish defeated North Dakota 13-3 in a two-game, total-goal WCHA playoff series, but Notre Dame lost to eventual national champion Wisconsin, 8-7, in the second round of the conference playoffs. The Irish remained competitive in the WCHA over the next eight years but could do no better than another second-place finish during 1976-77. Several Notre Dame players gained national notoriety during that time, most notably Jack Brownschidle (East Amherst, N.Y.), who earned All-America honors in ’76 and ’77 and remains the Notre Dame hockey program’s only two-time All-American. Brian Walsh (Cambridge, Mass.) earned All-America status and was named the 1976-77 WCHA MVP and Greg Meredith (Toronto, Ont.) earned All-America honors in 1979-80. Four years later, Notre Dame joined Michigan, Michigan State and Michigan Tech as the newest

members of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA). In 1981-82, Dave Poulin (Mississauga, Ont.) – a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award – led Notre Dame to a 23-15-2 record, a Great Lakes Invitational championship and a fourth-place finish in the regularseason standings. Following a first-round playoff series win over Michigan, the Irish defeated Bowling Green, 8-5, in the semifinals before falling to Michigan State, 4-1, in the title game. The Irish were unable to sustain that level the next season and struggled to a 13-21-2 record. Following Notre Dame’s loss to Bowling Green in a first-round playoff series, the University announced in the spring of 1983 that it would cease sponsoring varsity hockey. After competing as a club sport during 1983-84, varsity hockey returned to Notre Dame the following season (1984-85) when the Irish competed as a non-scholarship independent team.

Lefty Smith coached Notre Dame hockey for the first 19 seasons of the program’s modern era.

Irish Hockey History Smith remained at the helm through the end of the 1986-87 campaign, compiling a 19-year record of 307-320-30. The most impressive statistic from the Smith era is that all 126 players who completed their collegiate eligibility earned their college degrees. In 1987, Smith turned the program over to Ric Schafer (New Brighton, Minn.), a four-time monogram winner for the Irish from ’70-’74 and an assistant coach under Smith from 1975-80. Notre Dame hockey continued as an independent during the first four seasons of Schafer’s tenure, but with each year, the schedule became increasingly difficult and soon was littered with CCHA opponents. Schafer convinced the Notre Dame administration to allocate scholarships as the program continued to grow and his efforts culminated with Notre Dame’s return to the CCHA for the 1992-93 season. Prior to stepping down as head coach following the 1994-95 campaign, Schafer compiled a 112-152-15 record over eight seasons and will be remembered as the coach who returned Notre Dame hockey to a competitive Division I level. In 1995, Notre Dame turned to its most distinguished hockey alum to take over behind the bench. Dave Poulin returned to his alma mater following a 13-year career in the National Hockey League. During Poulin’s 10-year tenure, Notre Dame made steady improvements and continued to earn national recognition. In 1998-99, the Irish hosted a first-round CCHA playoff series for the first time since 1982, after spending most of the year ranked in the national top 10. Defenseman Benoit Cotnoir (Rouyn-Noranda, Que.) became the program’s seventh All-American. The following season produced another milestone as the Irish beat Ferris State in the first round of the CCHA playoffs and made their second-ever trip to Joe Louis Arena for the CCHA semifinals. In 2001-02 and 2002-03, the Irish pulled off playoff upsets and advanced to Joe Louis and the CCHA Super Six. In a five-year span, from 1999-00 to 2003-04, Notre Dame made it to Joe Louis Arena four times (2000, 2002, 2003, 2004). In 2001-02, the Irish upset higher-seeded Nebraska-Omaha in a series that featured a 3-2 double-overtime loss to the Mavericks, followed by one-goal wins in games two and three. The following year, the Irish traveled to higher-seeded Miami (Ohio) and — after dropping the first game, 4-2 — saw goaltender Morgan Cey (Wilkie, Sask.) spin back-to-back shutouts (a first in Notre Dame history), winning 1-0 and 5-0 to advance to “the Joe” again.

The 2003-04 season saw the Irish turn in their first 20-win season (20-15-4) since 1987-88, while finishing tied for fourth in the league standings with a 14-11-3 record. The Irish hosted regional-rival Western Michigan, winning the series, two games to one with the game-three winner coming in sudden death overtime on a goal by then freshman Jason Paige (Saginaw, Mich.).

Phil Wittliff got his Irish hockey career started as a member of the football team. After playing one season with the club team, he was the leading scorer on the first Irish hockey team of the modern era (1968-69) and then served as captain in 1969-70 and 1970-71.

– to Northern Michigan (3-1) in ’01-’02 and Ohio State (3-2 and 6-5 in overtime) in ’02-’03 and ’03-’04 respectively. The highly successful 2003-04 season ended with the Irish being selected to participate in their first-ever NCAA tournament on the strength of a 5-1-1 record versus teams ranked in the top five during the regular season. Notre Dame faced two-time defending NCAA champion, Minnesota, in the opening game at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich. After taking a 2-0 first-period lead, the Irish fell to the Gophers, 5-2, but Notre Dame had finally arrived on the national level. Following a disappointing ’04-’05 season (5-27-6), Poulin stepped down as head coach, turning over the reins to Jeff Jackson, who has continued to take the Irish to the national level. In his first season at the helm, Jackson and his staff worked to “change the culture” of the program and saw solid results as the team improved to 13-19-4 overall and earned home ice in the first round of the CCHA tournament with an 11-13-4 conference record. Jackson’s second year behind the bench saw the

Irish turn in the finest season in the program’s history. With a veteran squad led by eight seniors, including first-team All-American - the eighth All-American in school history - goaltender David Brown (Stoney Creek, Ont.), Notre Dame compiled a school-record 32 wins on the way to a 32-7-3 mark and won their firstever CCHA regular-season title with a 21-4-3 league record. Along the way, Jackson’s squad achieved the firstever number one ranking in school history and was the top team in the nation for seven consecutive weeks from Feb. 5 to March 23. The Irish swept Alaska (7-1, 3-1) in the second round to move to the CCHA semifinals. In Detroit, Brown blanked Lake Superior, 3-0, in the semis and the Irish knocked off Michigan, 2-1, in the championship game for the school’s first CCHA tournament championship. Notre Dame made its second NCAA Tournament appearance at Grand Rapids, Mich., this time as the Midwest Regional’s top seed. There, the Irish won their first NCAA tournament game, a 3-2 double-overtime thriller (the longest game in program history - 94:32) versus Alabama-Huntsville. The dream season came to an end the following night in a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to eventual NCAA champion Michigan State. In 2007-08, Notre Dame took an even bigger step on the national stage, advancing to the NCAA Frozen Four where they fell in the national championship game, 4-1, to Boston College. The Irish finished the year with a 27-16-4 overall record and were 15-9-4 in the CCHA, good for fourth place. Late season scoring struggles almost cost Notre Dame an NCAA bid, but they made it in as the final at-large team in the tournament. In the West Regional at Colorado Springs, Colo.,

the Irish found the goal-scoring touch as they dispatched the region’s top-seed, New Hampshire, 7-3, and then bounced Michigan State with a 3-1 win. Notre Dame became the first No. 4 seed to make the Frozen Four and would face the nation’s top-ranked team, Michigan, in the semifinals at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo. Freshman left wing Calle Ridderwall (Stockholm, Sweden) became an overnight sensation when his goal at 5:44 of overtime sent Michigan home with a 5-4 loss and the Irish to the title game versus Boston College. Jackson’s fourth season behind the bench in 200809 saw the Irish win its second CCHA regular-season and tournament championship as they were went 31-6-3 overall and 21-4-3-3 in conference play. Included in the overall mark was a school record 20-game unbeaten streak (17-0-3) that started on Oct. 31 and lasted until Jan. 17. During the season, Notre Dame spent seven weeks ranked No. 1 in the nation. The Irish were led by goaltender Jordan Pearce (Anchorage, Alaska) who led the nation in wins (30) and shutouts (8) with a stingy 1.68 goals-against average. In the CCHA playoffs, Pearce blanked Nebraska-Omaha in back-toback quarterfinal games to advance Notre Dame to its third straight trip to the CCHA championship round at Joe Louis Arena. In Detroit, the Irish won their second CCHA tournament title, stopping Northern Michigan, 2-1, in the semifinals before rallying from a 2-0 deficit versus Michigan in the championship game on the way to a 5-2 win. In the NCAA Tournament, the Irish were the top seed in the Midwest Regional at Grand Rapids, Mich., and were upset in the opening round in a 5-1 loss to Bemidji State. Defenseman Ian Cole (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and forward Erik Condra (Livonia, Mich.) became the ninth and 10th Irish Notre Dame players to be named All-American following the season. Following a disappointing 2009-10 season that was marred by injuries, the Irish returned to the top of the

national scene by advancing to the NCAA Frozen Four for the second time in the program’s history and the last four years. Notre Dame turned in a 25-14-5 overall record and a second-place finish in the CCHA. After winning the NCAA Northeast Regional with wins over Merrimack (4-3 in ot) and New Hampshire (2-1), the Irish faced off in St. Paul, Minn., versus MinnesotaDuluth in the NCAA semifinals. At the Xcel Energy Center, the Bulldogs prevailed with a 4-3 win in the first semifinal game against Notre Dame on the way to an overtime win versus Michigan in the national title game. The program achieved a first in ‘10-’11 as freshman T.J. Tynan (Orland Park, Ill.) led the nation’s freshmen in scoring and, besides being the Irish and CCHA rookie of the year, was named the Hockey Commissioner’s Association’s (HCA) national rookie of the year. During his first six seasons behind the Notre Dame bench, Jackson saw his teams record a 141-79-27 mark for a .624 winning percentage, two CCHA titles, four trips to the NCAA Tournament and two Frozen Four visits. Recognition for Notre Dame hockey though has continued to grow. In the first 43 years of the program,

NHL teams have drafted 68 Irish players, including five in the 2007 and 2010 Entry Drafts. In three of the last five seasons, Notre Dame has seen four of its players selected in the first round of the draft. In 2007, defenseman Ian Cole (Ann Arbor, Mich.) became the first Irish player chosen in the opening round as he was selected with the 18th pick overall by the St. Louis Blues. In 2009, forward Kyle Palmieri (Montvale, N.J.) was chosen by Anaheim and in 2010, center Riley Sheahan (St. Catharine’s, Ont.) and defenseman Jarred Tinordi (Millersville, Md.) were chosen on consecutive picks, 21st and 22nd overall by the Detroit Red Wings and the Montreal Canadiens. The 2010-11 season saw eight former Notre Dame players see ice time with NHL teams. Defenseman Mark Eaton (New York Islanders) is the elder statesman of the group and is followed by defenseman Brett Lebda (Toronto). Three others saw more action in ‘10-’11, including Tim Wallace (Pittsburgh), Christian Hanson (Toronto) and Victor Oreskovich (Vancouver), while three others - Erik Condra (Ottawa), Ian Cole (St. Louis) and Kyle Palmieri (Anaheim) - saw their first NHL action. Notre Dame’s most familiar NHL alumni include Poulin, whose 13-year career included three trips to the Stanley Cup finals and three all-star appearances. Twenty other Irish players have worn NHL jerseys, with four of them — Nyrop (three times with Montreal), defenseman Don Jackson (three times with Edmonton), Lebda (with Detroit in 2007-08) and Eaton (Pittsburgh in 2008-09) — drinking from the Stanley Cup. Notre Dame also has made its mark on the international level. Since the birth of the U.S. National Developmental Program, the Irish have seen 29 of their players come from the program, including seven on the 2011-12 roster alone.

NCAA Tournament History 2004 NCAA Tournament - First Round Midwest Regional #3 Minnesota 5 • #13 Notre Dame 2 March 27, 2004 • Grand Rapids, Mich.

The Notre Dame hockey team made its first-ever NCAA hockey tournament appearance on March 27, 2004 at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich. The opponent was the two-time defending national champion and third-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers. The Irish jumped out to a 2-0 first-period lead on goals by Cory McLean and Aaron Gill only to see the Gophers score five unanswered goals on the way to a 5-2 win over Notre Dame. That win moved the Gophers on to the Midwest Regional versus Minnesota-Duluth. Sophomore All-American Thomas Vanek led Minnesota’s comeback with two goals and an assist. Matt Koalska, Danny Irmen (ppg) and Troy Riddle also scored for the Gophers. The Irish got on the scoreboard just 54 seconds into the contest as McLean teamed with Gill on a two-onone to beat Minnesota goaltender Kellen Briggs for his 10th goal of the year. Notre Dame took advantage of a Minnesota penalty late in the first period and made it 2-0 at 19:18 of the third on the power play. Rob Globke and Mike Walsh set up Gill’s team-high ninth power-play goal of the year on a redirection past Briggs for Gill’s 17th of the year. The Gophers got their offense going in the second period just 26 seconds in when Koalska cut the lead in half to open the middle stanza. The powerful Gopher offense would even the score at 9:13 when Irmen steered a bouncing puck past Morgan Cey for a power-play tally to make it 2-2. Vanek put the Gophers ahead to stay 3-2 at 16:24 when he poked a loose puck past Cey for his first goal of the game. The talented Vanek would seal the win at 11:52 when he raced down the right side and tried to stuff a shot past Cey on the short side. The rebound came right back to him and he continued behind the net for a wrap-around-goal for the 4-2 lead. Riddle closed out the scoring for Minnesota with an empty-net goal at 19:24 to end Notre Dame’s season. On the night, Cey equaled a season-high with 40 saves. Briggs made 20 saves in the Minnesota goal.

2007 NCAA Tournament - First Round Midwest Regional #1 Notre Dame 3 • AlabamaHuntsville 2 (2ot) March 23, 2007 • Grand Rapids, Mich.

For over 94 minutes Notre Dame and AlabamaHuntsville battled tooth and nail, looking for that one scoring chance to end the contest. This time the luck of the Irish was in full force as freshman Ryan Thang drilled a shot from the left wing circle that beat Charger goaltender Marc Narduzzi to give the Irish the 3-2 win in the longest game in Irish hockey history. The win, the first NCAA Tournament victory in Irish hockey history, advanced Notre Dame to the Midwest Regional finals to face Michigan State. Notre Dame got off to a fast start, scoring a pair of goals in the first five minutes of the game. Senior left wing Josh Sciba gave the Irish a 1-0 lead just 3:18 into the game, beating starting goaltender Blake MacNichol with a shot from the left face-off dot. Thang followed with his first goal of the night at 4:26 when he took a feed from Erik Condra and ripped a low shot that beat MacNicol, giving the Irish a 2-0 lead. The goal sent MacNicol to the UAH bench in favor of Marc Narduzzi. It would be well over 90 minutes before the Irish would score again as they led 2-0 after the first period. Alabama got back in the game at 10:20 of the second period as Dominick Rozman’s shot deflected off an Irish defenseman past David Brown to cut the Notre Dame lead to 2-1. The Chargers would get the equalizer at 16:06 when Cale Tanaka fired a shot from the slot that beat Brown to the upper corner. From there the goaltenders took over. Brown would finish with 28 saves in the game while Narduzzi made 49 saves, giving up just one goal. The Irish got the game winner via the power play when defenseman Noah Babin was pulled down on a scoring bid. Defensemen Brett Blatchford and Kyle Lawson played catch at the point until Lawson slid a pass to the left wing boards where Thang took the puck. “He had stopped so many with his glove up until then that I decided to roll in front and shot it towards his blocker and it went in,” said Thang. “I couldn’t tell it was in until I saw the water bottle pop up in the air.” Thang’s goal was his 20th of the season and set off a wild celebration on the ice as the Irish had their first NCAA tournament win and lived to play another day. The 94:42 minutes of action was the longest game in Notre Dame hockey history. GAME SUMMARY 1 2 3 OT OT F Alabama-Huntsville (13-20 -3) 0 2 0 0 0 2 #1 Notre Dame (32-6-3) 2 0 0 0 1 3

2007 NCAA Tournament - Quarterfinals Midwest Regional #10 Michigan State 2 • #1 Notre Dame 1 March 24, 2007 • Grand Rapids, Mich. The Notre Dame hockey season will go down as the best

in the program’s 39-year history as the Irish set record after record on the way to a 32-7-3 final tally. The ride came to an end though as CCHA foe, Michigan State, handed the Irish a 2-1 loss in the Midwest Regional Championship. The loss ended Notre Dame’s season and sent the Spartans to the NCAA Frozen Four where they would eventually win the national championship. Chris Mueller and Tim Kennedy scored power-play goals for the Spartans while junior Evan Rankin scored Notre Dame’s lone goal in the loss. The regional championship got off to a slow start as the two teams tried to get a read on each other. The game would remain scoreless after one period of play. Michigan State finally broke through at 6:04 of the second period as the Spartans took advantage of a Notre Dame penalty. Defenseman Chris Snavely fired a shot from the right point that David Brown stopped. Chris Mueller stuffed the rebound past the Irish netminder for his 14th goal and a 1-0 lead. The lead would go to 2-0 on another power-play chance at 5:59 of the third period. Working the puck behind the net, Tim Kennedy walked in front and tucked the puck between Brown’s pads and the post as he was leveled by Kevin Deeth on the penalty kill. The goal was Kennedy’s 17th of the year and marked just the third time all season that Notre Dame gave up two power-play goals in a game. Notre Dame finally broke through on Michigan State goaltender Jeff Lerg at 14:52. Jason Paige moved the puck from the left wing boards to defenseman Brett Blatchford. Blatchford fired a shot on goal that went off of Rankin and past Lerg, cutting the lead to 2-1. For Rankin, the goal was his fourth of the season. The Irish would get several chances in the waning moments as Brown was pulled for the final 1:15 of the game in favor of a sixth attacker but could not score.

2008 NCAA Tournament - First Round West Regional #12 Notre Dame 7 • #4 New Hampshire 3 March 28, 2008 • Colorado Springs, Colo.

For most of the second half of the 2007-08 season, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish struggled to score goals. The struggles came to an end at the World Arena in the first semifinal of the NCAA West Regional. Notre Dame got seven goals from six different players as the Irish advanced to the West Regional final with a 7-3 win over top-seeded New Hampshire. Junior Christian Hanson scored two goals while Ian Cole (ppg), Kyle Lawson (ppg), Dan Kissel, Ryan Thang and Kevin Deeth had single goals in the win. Mark Van Guilder had a three-assist night while Thang added two assists for his three-point game. New Hampshire got two goals from Jerry Pollastrone and one from Phil DeSimone while James vanRiemsdyck added three assists in the game. The win improved Notre Dame to 25-15-4 on the year while fourth-ranked New Hampshire ended its season with a 25-10-3 mark. The Wildcats jumped out to an early lead, scoring at the 1:04 mark of the first when Pollastrone fired a rebound shot past Jordan Pearce for his 14th of the season. The Irish answered back just 58 seconds later on the power play when Cole drilled a wrist shot through Wildcat goaltender Kevin Regan’s pads to tie the game at the 2:02 mark. UNH continued to put the pressure on Pearce and made it 2-1 at 5:41 when Pollastrone got his second of the period and the game, firing the rebound of a Brad Flaishans shot past the Irish goaltender to make it 2-1. Despite being out shot in the first period by a 15-6 margin, Notre Dame would tie the score at 2-2 with a power-play goal at 17:25. Thang set up Lawson at the right point and the sophomore defenseman drilled a wrister past Regan for his fifth of the year. The Irish took the lead for good at 2:39 of the second period as Hanson scored his 11th goal of the year when Stewart Carlin’s shot rebounded into the slot where Hanson shoveled the puck past Regan to make it 3-2. The lead would go to 4-2 on a tremendous individual effort by Kissel as he stickhandled through three UNH defenders and fired a shot inside the left post at 9:53 for his ninth goal of the season. New Hampshire came right back and cut the lead to 4-3 when Phil DeSimone scored at 13:09.

Notre Dame restored the two-goal lead just 23 seconds into the third period after Van Guilder and Thang forced a Wildcat turnover behind the net. Van Guilder slid the puck in front to Thang who drilled one of his patented wrist shots past Regan for his 17th goal of the year and a 5-3 lead. With less than four minutes left in the game and the teams skating 4-on-4, UNH pulled its goaltender for a 5-on-4 advantage. Thang would break up up a Wildcat rush and fired a shot that went wide of the goal but off the back boards, bouncing to Deeth who shot it into the open net to make it 6-3 with 3:06 left in the game. Regan would again be pulled with under three minutes left in the game and Hanson closed the scoring at 17:54 when he scored his second of the night and 12th of the season for the final of 7-3. On the night, New Hampshire would out shoot Notre Dame, 35-34. Pearce finished the night with 32 saves while Regan had 27.

2008 NCAA Tournament - Quarterfinals West Regional #12 Notre Dame 3 • #9 Michigan State 1 March 29, 2008 • Colorado Springs, Colo.

The Notre Dame hockey team earned its first-ever trip to the Frozen Four with a 3-1 win over Michigan State in the championship game of the NCAA West Regional at the Colorado Springs World Arena. The Fighting Irish became the first team seeded fourth in a regional to advance to the Frozen Four and avenged their 2-1 loss to the Spartans in the ‘06-’07 Midwest Regional final. Christian Hanson, Mark Van Guilder and Teddy Ruth scored for Notre Dame in the victory with Van Guilder getting the game winner with 5:54 remaining in the third period. Michigan State dominated play early in the game but could not get the puck past goaltender Jordan Pearce who stopped all 10 first-period shots. Hanson broke through on the scoreboard for the Irish at 2:43 of the second stanza when he stuffed a rebound of his own wrap-around attempt past Spartan goaltender Jeff Lerg. That gave Hanson three goals and an assist in the two games and earned him a spot on the all-regional team. Michigan State’s Justin Abdelkader banged a laser off the crossbar three minutes later, then tied the game with 10:55 to play in the period when he put a onetimer from the left circle behind Pearce for his third point of the weekend to make it 1-1.

The game would remain that way until Van Guilder snapped the tie with just under six minutes left in the game. He took a pass from Ben Ryan off his leg, regained control in the slot and beat Lerg inside the near post with wrist shot from the slot. The Irish added an insurance goal just 1:14 later when Teddy Ruth put a slapshot from just outside the right circle past Lerg high on the glove side. Justin White and Christian Hanson cycled the puck out of the right corner, leaving Ruth alone at the point. While eight different players scored for the Irish, the Notre Dame defense played a huge role in both victories. The Irish blocked 12 shots in the victory over MSU and killed all four Spartan power plays and all nine in the two regional games. Pearce allowed just one goal on 21 Michigan State shots and had 32 saves in the victory over New Hampshire, posting back-to-back victories over Hobey Baker semifinalists Lerg and Kevin Regan. Van Guilder, Hanson and defenseman Brock Sheahan were selected to the NCAA West Regional All-Tournament team with Van Guilder being named Most Outstanding Player.

2008 NCAA Tournament - Semifinals Frozen Four #5 Notre Dame 5 • #41 Michigan 4 (ot) April 10, 2008 • Denver, Colo.

Freshman left wing Calle Ridderwall scored his second goal of the game at 5:44 of overtime, lifting fifth-ranked Notre Dame to a 5-4 victory over topseeded Michigan in the NCAA Frozen Four semifinals at a sold-out (18,544) Pepsi Center in Denver. The win moved the Irish into their first national championship game versus Boston College on April 12. Ridderwall came into the game with three goals in his rookie season, but saved some of his best play of the year for college hockey’s biggest stage as he also scored the opening goal in the first period. He was joined on the Irish side of the scoresheet by Mark Van Guilder, Ryan Thang and Kevin Deeth. Chad Kolarik scored twice for Michigan with Matt Rust and Carl Hagelin getting single goals in the loss. Ridderwall opened the scoring just five minutes into the game when he took an outlet pass from Justin White in center ice, moved into the Michigan zone and rifled a shot over Michigan goaltender Billy Sauer’s right shoulder for his fourth goal of the year. Just 42 seconds later, the Irish had a 2-0 lead when Thang dropped a pass for Van Guilder who ripped a shot from the left circle under Sauer’s left arm for his 13th of the season at 5:42. Thang took his turn at 19:25 of the first period when he scored a brilliant short-handed goal, beating the Wolverine defense at the blueline, then flipping a backhander over Sauer’s blocker for his 18th goal of the year and a 3-0 Irish lead.

Sauer was replaced by Bryan Hogan in the Michigan goal to start the second period and he held the Irish at bay until the Wolverines could get back in the game. They would score twice in a 15-second span midway through the middle period to get back in the game. Kolarik scored his first of the night at 8:48 when he took a centering pass from Kevin Porter in the high slot and wristed a shot over the left shoulder of Notre Dame goaltender Jordan Pearce. Seconds later, Michigan’s Aaron Palushaj skated into the left corner and tossed a pass toward the crease, where Matt Rust redirected the puck behind Pearce at 9:03 to make it a 3-2 game after two periods. The Wolverines would get the equalizer on the power play at 2:16 of the third period. Kolarik would get his second goal of the game when he fired a shot off the right post that caromed back to him. He wasted no time, depositing it past Pearce for his 30th goal of the year. The Irish grabbed the lead back with 8:30 remaining in the game as Dan Kissel and Deeth combined on a two-on-one. Kissel put a pass on Deeth’s stick and the sophomore center cut in front of the goal, chipping a shot over Hogan for his 10th goal of the season to give Notre Dame the 4-3 lead. Michigan answered back, tying the game at 4-4 at 14:39 when Hagelin won the race to a loose puck in the Irish zone and fired a shot from the goal line that somehow found its way between Pearce’s pad and the near post to send the game into overtime. That set up Ridderwall’s overtime heroics. White dropped a pass to the right point to defenseman Dan VeNard. The senior blueliner drilled a low shot on goal that Hogan stopped with the rebound sliding to the slot. Ridderwall was there and put his head down driving the puck past Hogan to set off a wild celebration on the Pepsi Center ice with a 5-4 Notre Dame win. The win was the first in overtime for the Irish during the 2007-08 season and their first since defeating Alabama-Huntsville in the 2006-07 NCAA Tournament. Pearce made 29 saves in the victory while Hogan stopped 18 of 20 shots in 45:44 minutes. Sauer finished with six saves in the first 20 minutes of action.

Calle Ridderwall talks to the media after scoring two goals, including the overtime game winner, versus Michigan in Notre Dame’s first Frozen Four appearance on April 10, 2008.

2008 NCAA Tournament - Finals Frozen Four #3 Boston College 4 • #5 Notre Dame 1 April 12, 2008 • Denver, Colo.

On Saturday, April 12, the Notre Dame hockey team ventured where no other Irish hockey team had ever been. They faced off in the NCAA Frozen Four championship game against Boston College at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo. The Irish ran into a red-hot Nathan Gerbe as the third-ranked Eagles ended Notre Dame’s season with a 4-1 loss in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,632. Gerbe scored twice and assisted on BC’s other two goals on his way to a four-point game and Most Valuable Player honors. Kevin Deeth scored the lone goal for the Irish who finished the year with a 27-16-4 record. Both teams had chances in a tightly-played first period that led to the fourth scoreless opening frame in NCAA title game history (also 1968, 2001 and 2007). BC ended up with a 7-4 shot advantage in the opening 20 minutes, while Notre Dame went on the power play three times in the period, coming up empty on all three. The Eagles snapped the scoreless tie just 2:23 into the second period, converting an Irish turnover into a goal. Brian Gibbons forced the turnover and found Gerbe inside the left circle where he whipped a shot over Jordan Pearce’s left shoulder for his 34th goal of the year. Gerbe was at it less than three minutes later, this time on a Boston College power play. Ben Smith’s shot from the slot was wide of the goal but rebounded off the back dasherboards into the crease where the

Eagles’ top scorer was there to jam the rebound past Pearce for a 2-0 lead at 5:37. BC made it 3-0 at 8:11 of the second period, converting a second power-play chance, this time with a 4-on-3 advantage. Joe Whitney did the honors as he took a feed from Gerbe at the top of the slot and drove a slapshot past Pearce for his 11th goal of the year. The Irish finally broke through just over a minute later at 9:07 when Deeth took a feed from defenseman Kyle Lawson and snapped a shot past Eagles’ goaltender John Muse to cut the lead to 3-1 after two periods of play. Notre Dame looked like they had cut the margin to 3-2 just 4:56 into the third period. Ian Cole’s centering pass got caught up in Lawson’s near the right post and deflected toward the goal, trickling past Muse and over the goal line. Although it was ruled a goal on the ice by referee Todd Anderson, video replay official, Greg Shepherd, overturned the score after a lengthy delay, ruling that the puck was apparently propelled into the net by Lawson’s skate in a distinct kicking motion. The no-goal call took on added significance less than a minute later when Boston College scored to make it a 4-1 game. Gerbe tracked down the puck behind the net and threw a centering pass back in front for Smith, who fanned on his shot attempt but got enough of the bouncing biscuit for it to knuckle over Pearce’s shoulder at 5:31 of the period for the final score of 4-1. Pearce finished with 19 saves in goal while Muse stopped 20 in the game. The Irish were 0-for-8 on the power play while Boston College was able to convert on two of four tries. Pearce finished the year with 23 wins and the team’s 27 wins were the second most in the program’s history. Lawson and Deeth were selected to the Frozen Four all-tournament team.

March 28, 2009 • Grand Rapids, Mich.

The Fighting Irish made their third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament, this time as the No. 1 seed at the Midwest Regional, facing Bemidji State. The Beavers advanced to the tournament as the champions of College Hockey America (CHA). For Notre Dame, everything that could go wrong did at Van Andel Arena as the Irish were upset by the Beavers in a 5-1 loss. Ranked second in the nation coming into the regional, the loss ended Notre Dame’s season with a 31-6-3 record. Bemidji went on to win the regional and advance to its first ever Frozen Four. The first Bemidji goal would set the tone for the entire game. The Beavers dumped the puck behind the Irish net, where senior goaltender Jordan Pearce came out to play it. The puck took a funny bounce off the back dasher, then caromed off the side of the goal and back into the crease at the right post. As Pearce scrambled to get back in his net, BSU’s Chris McKelvie came charging in from the right wing and chopped at the puck, muscling it over the line just 1:42 into the contest. The Beavers would make it 2-0 at 11:03 of the first when Tyler Schofield scored on a power-play deflection of a Brad Hunt shot that found its way between Pearce’s pads. Notre Dame had its chances in the first period, outshooting Bemidji by an 11-7 margin. The lead would go to 3-0 in the second period when Ben Kinne’s shot from the point caromed through a crowd behind Pearce at 13:19. The Irish would start the third period on the power play and would look to get their offense in gear over the final 20 minutes. Those hopes would die just 49 seconds into the third period when Schofield broke up an Irish rush and Matt Read blasted a slapshot from the top of the right circle over Pearce’s blocker to give the Beavers a 4-0 lead. Notre Dame would finally get on the board at 6:02 when Dan Kissel buried a shot past Bemidji goaltender Matt Dalton from the left circle for his sixth goal of the year to cut the lead to 4-1. The Irish would pull Pearce with just under four minutes left in favor of a sixth attacker only to see the Beavers win a big face off before Schofield fired a loose puck into an empty net for the final margin of 5-1. Pearce would finish the game with 14 saves while Dalton made 34 stops in the Bemidji net.

After missing the NCAA Tournament in 2010, Notre Dame returned to postseason action in 2011 at the Northeast Regional in Manchester, N.H., as the third seed at the Verizon Wireless Arena. The Irish opened the tournament against Hockey East foe, Merrimack and the Warriors saw Notre Dame rally from a pair of two-goal deficits to win in overtime, 4-3, to advance to the regional final. Freshman left wing Anders Lee led the way for the Irish, recording two goals, including the overtime game winner 5:18 into the extra stanza for the win. Junior Billy Maday and senior Calle Ridderwall added single goals in the victory. Merrimack got goals from Kyle Bigos, Ryan Flanigan and Rhett Bly, as the Warriors led 2-0 in the first period and 3-1 midway through the second. Notre Dame out shot the Warriors, 37-35, in the game. Irish goaltender Mike Johnson made 32 saves while Merrimack’s Joe Cannata had 33. The victory improves the ninth-ranked Irish to 24-13-5 on the season while seventh-ranked Merrimack closes its season with a 25-10-4 mark. The Warriors jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period scoring once on the power play and once shorthanded. Bigos opened the scoring at 13:23 when he managed to jam a loose puck in the crease past Johnson for his second goal of the season. With Notre Dame on the power play, Merrimack got its second goal of the night as Flanigan teamed with Stephane DeCosta on a 2-on-1 short-handed goal at 16:00 for the 2-0 lead. The Irish answered 27 seconds later on the power play as Ridderwall ripped a shot from between the hashmarks, beating Cannata to his stick side. The goal was the 15th of the season for the senior left wing. Merrimack built the lead to 3-1 at 2:58 of the middle stanza as Bly backhanded a Shawn Bates centering pass over Johnson for his fourth goal of the season. Notre Dame cut the lead to 3-2 at 13:29 when Lee fired a wrist shot over Cannata’s glove hand and into the upper right corner. Right wing Bryan Rust cleared the puck out of the Irish zone from the right boards to Lee on the left side in the neutral zone. The freshman left wing raced down the left side and fired from the top of the left circle, scoring his team-high 23rd goal of the season. The Irish poured it on in the third period out shooting the Warriors by a 17-4 margin and scored the only goal of the period as Maday got the equalizer at 5:32. This time Lee carried the puck into the Merrimack zone and fired a shot from the left circle that Cannata kicked out. Maday drove to the goal and was able to get a stick on it and push it through the goaltender’s pads for his ninth goal of the season and a 3-3 tie. While the Irish ended regulation with the momentum, Merrimack came out flying in the extra stanza putting the pressure on the Notre Dame goal with six shots in the first five minutes. Lee would get the game winner at 5:18 on pure hustle and a little bit of luck. Off a face off, the Irish threw the puck into the Merrimack zone where a Warrior defender picked it up on the left side of the

2011 NCAA Tournament - Quarterfinals Northeast Regional #9 Notre Dame 2 • #11 New Hampshire 1 March 27, 2011 • Manchester, N.H.

For the third time in five trips to the NCAA Tournament, Notre Dame would play in a regional championship game, this time facing New Hampshire at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H. Sophomore goaltender Mike Johnson stopped 37-of-38 shots on the night and got all the offense he needed on goals by Stephen Johns and Billy Maday as the Fighting Irish downed the Wildcats, 2-1, to send Notre Dame to the NCAA Frozen Four for the second time in the program’s 43-year history. Johnson, who was selected to the all-region team and the regional’s most valuable player, was the key for the Irish as he held the Wildcats off the scoreboard early in the game and then withstood their thirdperiod comeback attempt. The Verona, Wis., native finished the weekend with 69 saves and a pair of wins. The lone New Hampshire goal came with 6:23 left in the game and was scored by Mike Sislo. The victory improves ninth-ranked Notre Dame to 25-13-5 overall while 11th-ranked New Hampshire finishes the year with a 22-11-6 mark. New Hampshire dominated the first seven minutes of the game, out shooting Notre Dame by an 8-1 margin. Following a television timeout at the 7:11 mark of the period, the Irish got their second shot of the period and it found the back of the Wildcat net. Johns, a freshman defenseman, got Notre Dame on the scoreboard at 7:26 of the first as he hammered a shot from the center point past UNH netminder Matt DiGirolamo’s stick hand for the 1-0 lead. The Wildcats out shot the Irish, 13-7, in the first period only to see the Irish gain the edge in play in the second period but they could not score until five seconds remained in the period. With time running down, the Irish dumped the puck into the New Hampshire zone where Riley Sheahan took control. He worked his way down to the goal line before centering a pass in front. The puck found Maday at the bottom of the left circle where he got off a backhander that beat DiGirolamo over his blocker and under the crossbar at 19:55 to give the Irish a 2-0 lead. The goal was Maday’s second of the

weekend and 10th of the season. New Hampshire finally broke through on Johnson, snapping his shutout bid at 13:37 of the third period on a goal by Sislo from right in front to cut Notre Dame’s lead to 2-1. From there the Irish held off the Wildcats, including a penalty kill in the final four minutes. Johnson was quick to credit his teammates for his success in the win. On the night, Notre Dame was out shot by New Hampshire, 38-36. DiGirolamo finished with 34 saves in the Wildcat goal. The win improved the Irish to 6-4 all-time in NCAA Tournament games. Four Notre Dame players were selected to the allNortheast Regional Team. Johnson was selected as the all-tourney goaltender with Johns on defense. Maday and Anders Lee were selected as forwards on the squad. New Hampshire defenseman Blake Kessel and forward Mike Sislo rounded out the team with Johnson being named MVP of the tournament.

2011 NCAA Tournament - Semifinals Frozen Four #3 Minnesota-Duluth 4 • #14 Notre Dame 3 April 7, 20011 • St. Paul, Minn.

Notre Dame made its second trip to the NCAA Frozen Four in four seasons and opened the finals action versus Minnesota-Duluth at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. The Bulldogs used three power-play goals to dash Irish national championship hopes on the way to a 4-3 win to end Notre Dame’s outstanding 2010-11 season. J.T. Brown, Mike Connolly and Jack Connolly scored on the power play and Kyle Schmidt added the fourth goal as the Bulldogs built a 4-2 lead after two periods of play and held on for the one-goal win on the way to their first-ever national championship. The Irish got goals from Jeff Costello, T.J. Tynan and Calle Ridderwall (shg) as they had leads of 1-0 and 2-1 in the game but could not hold on to each advantage.

Charles “Lefty” Smith Coaches Award Charles “Lefty” Smith came to Notre Dame in 1968 to start the Notre Dame hockey program and remained the head coach of the Fighting Irish for 19 seasons before retiring in 1987. During his time behind the bench, Notre Dame produced six AllAmericans and finished second in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) twice (1972-73 and 1976-77). He was selected the WCHA Coach of the Year following the 1972-73 season. The popular head coach retired following the 1986-87 season with a career record of 307-320-30. Following his coaching career, Smith became the director of the Loftus Sports Center where he remains today coordinating all events and activities. In 2002, he was honored for his outstanding accomplishments in hockey at the Hobey Baker Award Banquet as a “Legend of Hockey” honoree. “Lefty” Smith’s name will always be synonymous with Irish hockey as his name now graces the Coaches Award that goes annually to the unsung hero of the Notre Dame hockey program, the player who is unheralded, has overcome adversity and shows loyalty and commitment to his teammates, Notre Dame hockey and the University of Notre Dame. 2010-11 ...............................................

USA Hockey Under-18 Stars Sign On With Irish The 2011-12 Notre Dame hockey team includes seven players who are products of the USA Hockey National Team Developmental Program (NTDP), which began in 1997-98. Leading the way are seniors Patrick Gaul (forward) and defenseman Sean Lorenz who begin their final seasons at Notre Dame. The junior class has one former NTDP player in defenseman Sam Calabrese while a pair of sophomores - defenseman Stephen Johns and forward Bryan Rust - start their second seasons with the Irish. The two newcomers include freshman defenseman Robbie Russo and freshman forward Austin Wuthrich. In all, the Irish have 28 former national team members to have played at Notre Dame since 1997-98.

Freshman defenseman Robbie Russo joins the Irish for the 2011-12 season. Last year with the Under-18 team, Russo helped the USA to gold medals at the Four Nations, Five Nations and World Under-18 Championships.

Freshman forward Austin Wuthrich was sidelined for most of the 2010-11 campaign after suffering a broken leg in the second game of the season. The big forward impressed the Irish coaching staff with his play with Team Illinois the previous season before he was asked to join the National Program in 2009-10.
