In Memoriam - Charles “Lefty” Smith (1930-2012) When the Notre Dame hockey team takes the ice for the start of the 2012-13 season, a familiar face will be missing from the Compton Family Ice Arena but his impact and love for the program will never be denied Charles “Lefty” Smith, the patriarch of the Notre Dame hockey program, passed away on January 3, 2012, just two days shy of his 82nd birthday. His legacy though will live on as the Notre Dame hockey team will play its games on the Charles “Lefty” Smith, Jr. Rink. Smith and his family moved to South Bend, Ind., in 1968 after he was selected to be the first coach of the Notre Dame hockey program as it moved from the club level to Division I. The Irish also were moving into the brand new Athletic and Convocation Center (ACC) complete with an ice hockey rink that the Minnesota high school coaching legend would manage. The rest as they say is history. Smith not only built a respectable hockey program on the ice but also brought in top student-athletes who were strong in the classroom and respected in the Notre Dame and South Bend communities. He and his top assistant, Tim McNeill, started the Irish Youth Hockey League, bringing the first youth hockey program to the South Bend and Michiana region. He guided the Irish through their first 19 seasons, amassing 307 wins before retiring in 1987. From there he moved on to manage the Loftus Sports Center, a job that he did until his retirement at the end of December, 2011. He spent 44 years at Notre Dame, making him the longest tenured employee at the time of his retirement. “It is difficult to imagine Notre Dame without Charles ‘Lefty’ Smith,” said Notre Dame vice president and athletics director Jack Swarbrick at the time of his death. “From the time I attended my first hockey game as a freshman to the time I spent with him at his retirement party a few weeks ago, Lefty had been a prominent, colorful and impactful fixture at our University. Lefty’s legacy will be measured not so much in the program he built or the games he won, but rather the thousands of lives he touched as a coach, teacher, administrator, father and husband--a legacy that we had the privilege of honoring with him in naming the Lefty Smith Rink at the Compton Family Ice Arena. We will miss him greatly, but we will never forget him.” Irish head coach Jeff Jackson commented on Smith’s impact on Notre Dame hockey. “We wouldn’t be who we are or have what we have if it wasn’t for Lefty,” said Jackson. “He helped start the program and gave it life, and was a great ambassador for the University and for college hockey. There are so many great coaches in the early era … guys that really started college hockey, and Lefty was a big part of that.” In his 19 seasons behind the Notre Dame bench, Smith coached six All-Americans--Eddie Bumbacco (1973), Bill Nyrop (1973), Jack Brownschidle (1976, 1977), Brian Walsh (1977), Greg Meredith (1980) and Kirt Bjork (1983)--and

finished second in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) twice (1972-73, 1976-77). He was named WCHA coach of the year following the 1972-73 season. In 1981-82, the Irish moved to the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) where Smith guided the Irish to the Great Lakes Invitational Championship and the CCHA championship game that season. He remained the head coach through the 1986-87 season and retired with a career record of 307-320-30. In his 19 seasons, all 126 players who played for him completed their collegiate eligibility and earned college degrees For a man who accomplished quite a bit in his storied coaching career, one of his biggest accomplishments came off the ice. In 1987, he played an integral part in bringing the International Special Olympics to Notre Dame, overseeing 22,000 volunteers and 6,000 Special Olympic athletes from 72 nations during the 12-day event. Smith served two years as president of the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) and in 1992 he was inducted into the Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association Hall of Fame. In 2003, he was named a “Legend of Hockey” by the Hobey Baker Memorial Award Foundation. A native of South St. Paul, Minn., Smith got his start in coaching at his high school -South St. Paul High - where he was instrumental in developing that fabled high school program before moving to South Bend. A 1951 graduate of St. Thomas University, where he was a standout hockey and baseball player, Smith became an assistant coach at South St. Paul in 1953 and took over as head coach in 1958. He remained there until 1968, turning in a record of 201-69-11 before leaving to start the hockey program at Notre Dame. Lefty’s legacy was never more evident than the weekend of Feb. 3-4, 2012, when more than 250 members of the Notre Dame community, including 80 former players, coaches, managers and trainers gathered on campus to celebrate his

life during “Lefty Fest” weekend. Thirty-seven members of his family participated in the festivities with his seven children on hand to drop the ceremonial first puck prior to the Friday night game against Bowling Green. Saturday’s events included a Mass on the old rink in the Joyce Center followed by a dinner in the Monogram Club to honor Smith, followed by the second game of the Bowling Green series. “Lefty created an extended family through his time as our coach - an extraordinary group of talented people, talented hockey players, but more than that, just great human beings,” said Irish All-American Greg Meredith ‘80 at the dinner. “I am so glad to be a part of that brotherhood and a part of that family.” The dinner also included special recognition for the Boler and McCormack families, whose generosity made the Lefty Smith Rink possible. “Beyond being just a hockey coach, I’ve never seen a man who was so compassionate, so full of life and so engaged,” said Matt Boler ‘88. “He truly loved his players, he loved his friends and family - he’s a seminal character of Notre Dame, and that’s why we felt he needed to be remembered and celebrated within the University.” Smith and his late wife Mickey (Mary McNally of New Richmond, Wis.) were the parents of seven living children (the Smiths were preceded in death by a son Greg), 16 grandchildren and five great grandchildren. After 44 years in the Joyce Center, Smith got to see the Irish move into the brand new Compton Family Ice Arena with the rink that bears his name in November of 2011. Lefty’s legacy at Notre Dame was not lost on the Compton Family and may have been best summed up by Gayla Compton. “He was the pinnacle of not just Notre Dame hockey, but of Notre Dame,” said Mrs. Compton. “He was loved. It’s one thing to love a university, but to have the same university love him back with such intensity and such sincerity is incredible.”

University of Notre Dame

W

hen Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. Today researchers are achieving breakthroughs in astrophysics, radiation chemistry, environmental sciences, tropical disease transmission, cancer, robotics, and nanoelectronics. The University has also stressed residential life, with four-of-five students living on campus in the school’s 29 residence halls that serve as the focal point of social, spiritual and athletic activities. Notre Dame is one of a handful of universities with a truly international student body, coming from over 100 nations and all 50 states. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Fr. Sorin. Notre Dame is one of the few universities to regularly rank in the top 25 in the U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s best colleges and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup standings of the best overall athletics

programs. The University ranks first among all Catholic universities worldwide, according to the 2011 Times Higher Education survey and the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame boasts the No. 1 undergraduate business program in the nation according to BusinessWeek magazine.


University Leadership Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. President

R

ev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., is in his second five-year term as the 17th president of the University of Notre Dame. His vision is for Notre Dame to be the Catholic research university for our time – an institution that unifies, enlightens and heals by engaging in scholarship of the first rank while maintaining its distinctive Catholic character and long-time excellence in undergraduate education. During his tenure, Notre Dame has made significant progress toward its research goal, including selection as the lead partner in the Midwest Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery, the creation of the Innovation Park research facility, and the construction of Stinson Remick Hall of Engineering. His commitment to undergraduate education has been marked by the Notre Dame Forums, yearlong initiatives that have examined important issues such as religion and world conflict, global health, immigration and energy.

The University’s Catholic identity has been strengthened during Father Jenkins’ tenure in multiple ways, including the appointment of a coordinator for University life initiatives and the construction of multimillion-dollar facilities for the Institute for Church Life, including the Center for Social Concerns, and the Institute for Educational Initiatives, which includes the Alliance for Catholic Education. Father Jenkins earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in philosophy from Notre Dame in 1976 and 1978, respectively, and was ordained a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1983. He holds advanced degrees from Oxford and the Jesuit School of Theology. He is a professor of philosophy and the author of Knowledge and Faith in Thomas Aquinas. A native of Omaha, Neb., Father Jenkins was born Dec. 17, 1953.

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 AllAmericans, 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

The Compton Family Ice Arena

Game night at the Compton Family Ice Arena. The Irish battled Michigan State on Feb. 24, 2012 in front of a sellout crowd of 5,022, one of 11 on the season at the new facility. The building officially opened on Oct. 18, 2011 with the first game played there on Oct. 21 versus Rensselaer. Dreams do come true. One needs to look no further than the brand new, state-of-the-art Compton Family Ice Arena (CFIA) on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The home of the Notre Dame hockey team, the facility opened its doors to the public on Oct. 18, 2011 with the Fighting Irish playing their first game there three nights later on Friday, Oct. 21 in front of a capacity crowd of 5,022 that saw the Irish take a 5-2 win versus the Rensselaer (RPI) Engineers.

Since that crazy, hectic opening week last October, the building has been in constant use, serving both the Notre Dame and South Bend communities, hosting a wide-range of activities, including Notre Dame hockey games and camps, local high school and youth hockey, sled hockey, figure skating, public skating, physical education skating classes, learn-to-skate, learn-to-curl and other Compton Classroom instructional programs, Notre Dame intramural ice hockey and broomball, the Notre Dame women’s club

hockey and precision skating teams, commencement ceremonies and as a local meeting place. Youth hockey tournaments with participating teams from around the country and managed by Hockey Time Productions (It’s Hockey Time), showcase tournaments hosted by the High Performance Hockey League, Bauer Select camps, Chicago Mission games, the United States Hockey League (USHL) and the Brian Boitano Skating Spectacular also have already been patrons of the CFIA in its inaugural season.

The Compton Family Ice Arena

The Compton Family Ice Arena features two sheets of ice – the 200’ X 90’ Charles “Lefty” Smith Rink that serves as the home of the Notre Dame hockey program and a 200’ X 100’ Olympic-sized sheet that also serves patrons of the facility. The Lefty Smith Rink has a capacity of 5,022 (4,500 chair-backed seats and 522 standing-room spaces) while the Olympic-sized rink has seating for approximately 350 available. Prior to moving into the Compton Family Ice Arena, the ice rink that serviced the Notre Dame community was the Joyce Center Rink that was housed in the north dome of the Joyce Center. Opened in 1968, the Joyce Center

seated 2,857 for hockey and was the home of the Irish for 44 years. While Notre Dame hockey is the main tenant of the building, the CFIA has become much more than that. It has really become a community center and a meeting place for the entire Michiana area of Northwest Indiana and southern Michigan, a belief that Irish athletics director Jack Swarbrick talked about at the building’s dedication on Sept. 11, 2010. On that day, Swarbrick said, ““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.”

He continued, “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.” As the home of the Notre Dame hockey team, the building includes a state-of-the art team suite that includes both wet and dry locker rooms, a team auditorium for meetings and weekly team Mass, a sports medicine area, a player’s lounge, equipment areas, video operations and a multi-purpose room that will serve as a study lounge and dining area. In addition to a dedicated visiting team suite for Notre Dame’s opponents, there also are four auxiliary locker rooms for the Smith Rink with showers and restrooms and one official’s locker room with restroom and shower. The Olympic Rink also has four auxiliary locker rooms with restrooms and showers and one official’s locker room with restroom and shower. In addition, 700 pairs of rental skates are available to patrons of public skating in the service pro shop at ice level along with essential equipment, accessories and skate sharpening.

Design and construction of the Compton Family Ice Arena was under the auspices of the Southfield, Mich., office of Barton Malow, a national design and construction services firm and their project partner Rossetti Architects, also of Southfield, Mich. Planning for the facility began on Feb. 12, 2009 when Notre Dame executive vicepresident John Affleck-Graves and athletics director Jack Swarbrick announced that the University’s Board of Trustees approved the plan for a stand-alone rink. 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 lead donors – Kevin and Gayla Compton and family. The Comptons are part of the ownership group of the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks. He also talked about the new building and its importance to the Notre Dame and Michiana communities.

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.

APR LEADERS – The Notre Dame hockey program was one of 12 University athletic programs to post perfect 1,000 scores - more perfect scores than any other Football Bowl Subdivision school registered -- in the eighth annual set of Academic Progress Rate statistics by the NCAA in June of 2012. All 26 Irish athletic programs again exceeded the NCAA’s APR standards. Notre Dame’s 12 perfect scores of 1,000 led all FBS programs. Boston College and Duke tied for second with nine each, followed by Northwestern (eight), Vanderbilt (eight), Stanford (seven), North Carolina (five), Rice (five) and Texas (five). The 2012 report released by the NCAA features a four-year compilation of APR data from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years. The APR uses a series of formulas related to student-athlete retention and eligibility to measure the academic performances of all participants who receive grants-in-aid on every team at every NCAA Division I college and university. Eight Notre Dame’s men’s teams -- basketball, cross country, golf, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field -- registered perfect 1,000 scores. In addition, four Irish women’s teams -- cross country, golf, softball, and swimming and diving -- also earned perfect scores with 11 other Notre Dame teams producing scores of 991 or better. CAPTAIN LEE – Junior center/left wing Anders Lee (Edina, Minn.) has been selected as the captain of the 2012-13 Notre Dame hockey team and will be the only captain this season. The talented forward served as an alternate captain during the 2011-12 season. In his first two years with the Irish, Lee has played in 84 career games with 41 goals and 37 assists for 78 points.

Jeff Jackson’s win total in his seven seasons behind the Notre Dame bench. The Irish bench boss is 16097-30 (.610) since taking over behind the bench prior to the 2005-06 season.

124:35

Junior goaltender Steven Summerhays recorded his first two career shutouts in back-to-back games for the Irish versus Michigan State (Feb. 24) and Ohio State (March 2) during the 2011-12 season. His shutout streak was a personal best of 124:35 as he surrendered a goal 4:35 into the first period of game two of the first-round playoff series against the Buckeyes.

CONFERENCE CALL - Notre Dame begins its final season in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) in 2012-13. The Irish will begin play in the Hockey East Association beginning with the 2013-14 campaign. The change in conferences was announced on Oct. 5, 2011 with a press conference that was held at the Compton Family Ice Arena. In making the announcement, Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna said, “It is not an overstatement to say that this is one of the most significant days in the history of our conference. The addition of new institutions is always exciting but Notre Dame brings a unique set of qualities and circumstances to the continued growth of our league. We are proud to welcome

UNIVERSITY of NOTRE DAME®

Notre Dame into the fold and we look forward to getting to the many details that come with this announcement.” Notre Dame Vice President and Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick said, “We are excited to be joining Hockey East beginning in the 2013-14 season. Many factors played a role in our decision, but three were of special importance to us. The first two were the critical issues of the student-athlete experience and Notre Dame’s fit with the other schools in the conference. But of special importance in this instance, was our goal of giving our hockey program an unprecedented level of national exposure through our expanded partnership with the NBC Sports Group. Athletics at Notre Dame has always served as a platform for promoting the University.” Notre Dame head coach Jeff Jackson added, “We are honored and pleased to join Hockey East for the 2013-14 season. The conference is an established league with a great tradition and outstanding programs that share Notre Dame’s values. The exposure for our players and team in a major media and NHL market will be second to none. Hockey East’s commitment to playing a smaller league schedule will allow us to enhance our home and non-conference schedule with traditional western and Big Ten rivals. This will allow us to bring great games to the Compton Family Ice Arena and create a more diverse, nationally-televised schedule. We are grateful to Joe Bertagna and the Hockey East Association members for this tremendous opportunity.” Notre Dame has been a member of the CCHA twice during its 45 years of Division I hockey. The Irish first joined the conference from 1981-83 and then again in 1992 through the 2012-13 season. During that time, Notre Dame has won two CCHA regular-season and postseason tournament titles (2007 and 2009). EXTRA HOCKEY: When Notre Dame lost to Michigan, 2-1, in double overtime in the first game of the second-round CCHA playoff series on March 9, 2012, it snapped a 26-game unbeaten (7-0-19) streak for the Irish in overtime. The last overtime loss for Notre Dame came on March 21, 2008, to Miami (2-1) in the semifinals of the CCHA tournament. The Irish have not lost a CCHA regular-season game since Jan. 8, 2005, a 2-1 loss at Lake Superior State. Last season, Notre Dame was 2-1-3 in overtime. All three ties ended in CCHA shootouts with the Irish going 0-3 in those contests. The overtime victories came at home and against Alaska and Boston College in the space of one week, Nov. 12 and Nov. 18. FOREIGN EXCHANGE – Sophomore forward Peter Schneider (Vienna, Austria) is the third European to play at Notre Dame. As a freshman last season, Schneider played in 23 games with two goals and four assists for six points. He played


his junior hockey with one season (2009-10) in the United States Hockey League (USHL) for the Indiana Ice. With the Ice, he had 30 goals and 24 assists for 54 points in 55 games. He joins Swedish natives Calle Ridderwall ‘11 and Robin Bergman as the three Europeans to play at Notre Dame. Ridderwall spent four years with the Irish (2007-11) while Bergman played part of the 2007-08 campaign.

HOCKEY CITY CLASSIC – The Notre Dame hockey team will play its first-ever outdoor game during the program’s Division I era on Sunday, Feb. 17 when the Irish take part in the Hockey City Classic at Chicago’s historic Soldier Field. They will face CCHA-rival, Miami in the first game of the doubleheader while Minnesota will battle Wisconsin in the second game. The two games will be preceded by two weeks of winter festivities, including two days of free public skating, high school hockey events, youth and adult hockey events, private ice rentals and more. The Hockey City Classic is being organized by the Chicago-based sports and entertainment marketing agency Intersport, in partnership with Soldier Field and the Chicago Park District. Notre Dame hockey is no stranger to the city of Chicago as the Irish have played hockey in the Windy City on and off since the 1966-67 campaign when the Notre Dame club team played in the first-ever college hockey tournament at Chicago Stadium.

Season Preview Veteran Notre Dame Squad Looks For Big Things In 2012-13 Campaign Led by sixteen upperclassmen, Irish look to make new season one to remember. With the start of every new college hockey season, teams are filled with excitement and anticipation of what the new year will bring. Will it be a conference championship, a run to the NCAA Tournament or even a trip to the Frozen Four? The Notre Dame hockey team is no different as it enters the 2012-13 campaign, the first full season for the Irish in the new Compton Family Ice Arena. For the first time in three years, head coach Jeff Jackson and his staff can say that they have a veteran squad as the roster features 16 upperclassmen, made up of four seniors and a 12-man junior class. The Irish will look to put the rollercoaster season of 2011-12 in the rearview mirror as they have their sights set on bigger and better things. Notre Dame’s final record of 19-18-3 is the final compilation of a season that saw the Irish run off an 11-game unbeaten streak (8-0-3), including losing streaks of four games and five games at different times during the season and a three-game, mid-season winning streak versus three teams ranked in the top 10 (Ferris State, Boston University and at Minnesota). Coming off a 2010-11 season that saw the Irish advance to the Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minn., much more was expected of the team last season, a fact that left people disappointed in the final outcome that included an eighth-place CCHA finish (12-13-3-0) and a loss in the second-round of the playoffs at Michigan. With a veteran roster returning, Notre Dame should have plenty of expectations for the 2012-13 season as they look to return to the level they achieved just two short seasons ago. Jackson and his staff will have to replace six players from last seasons’ roster - five seniors and one junior - Riley Sheahan - who signed with the Detroit Red Wings. Lost to graduation were co-captains, defenseman Sean Lorenz and forward Billy Maday along with forwards Nick Condon, Patrick Gaul and Richard Ryan. Lorenz was a four-year letter winner on the Notre Dame blue line and a steadying influence over his last two seasons. The CCHA defensive defenseman of the year as a junior, Lorenz played in 157 career games (to finish ninth on the all-time games played list) and had three goals and 10 assists for 13 points as a senior. A steady, stay-at-home defender, Lorenz led a young, talented group of defensemen the past two seasons. Maday and Sheahan both played center and were talented players who had strong games at both ends of the ice. Maday teamed with Lorenz and sophomore Anders Lee to give the team strong leadership on and off the ice. On the ice, Maday was a regular contributor in all four of his seasons at Notre Dame. He finished his career, playing in 153 games, notching 45 goals with 60 assists for 105

points and became the 46th player in Irish history to score 100 points in his career. Maday was third in scoring last season with 12 goals and 15 assists for 27 points and almost single-handedly led the team past Ohio State in the first round of the CCHA playoffs, having a hand in four of the team’s six goals in the two-game sweep. Sheahan, a first-round pick of Detroit’s in 2010, had his best year at Notre Dame. A talented, two-way center, he was fourth in scoring with nine goals and 16 assists for 25 points in his junior campaign. Gaul closed out his four years at Notre Dame with a career year, getting two goals and five assists for seven points in 32 games, seeing action at center and left wing during the season. Condon and Ryan saw limited action during the season playing in three and nine games respectively. Jackson and his coaching staff of Paul Pooley, Andy Slaggert and Jason Nightingale have added five newcomers to the roster who bring skill and talent to the lineup. They will be counted on to fill the gaps lost due to graduation and the early departure of Sheahan. One area that the Irish are set is the goaltending position where Jackson has three quality goaltenders who mirrored the team’s rollercoaster season as much as anyone. The goaltending lineup is a veteran one, led by senior Mike Johnson (Verona, Wis.) and a pair of juniors with Steven Summerhays (Anchorage, Alaska) and Joe Rogers (Marysville, Mich.). In each of his first three seasons, Johnson has carried the load in goal and for his career has played in 91 games, making 85 starts. He owns a career record of 39-33-12 with a 2.63 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage. He already ranks third all-time in goals-against average (2.63), is fourth in save percentage (.901), fifth in winning percentage (.536), is tied for seventh in wins (39) and is 10th in games played (91) at Notre Dame. As much as any player on the team, Johnson, the goaltending hero of the 2012 NCAA Regionals, had a crazy season that saw him finish with a 9-10-3 record, a 2.69 goals-against average and a .883 save percentage, the lowest of his career. Included in his win-loss totals was a personal -best 10-game unbeaten streak (7-0-3) from Oct. 14 to Nov. 25 that was followed by a five-game losing streak. Summerhays saw his playing time increase as a sophomore and took advantage of it, taking over as the top goaltender for the postseason. He was 10-8-0 on the year with a 2.43 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage with a pair of shutouts. The athletic, butterfly-style goaltender also had an up-and-down year. He roared out to a 6-1-0 mark through early January, including wins over Ferris State, Boston University and Minnesota before hitting his rough spot with a 1-5-0 mark in January and early February. He found his game late in the season, recording shutouts versus Michigan State and Ohio State, compiling a shutout streak of 124:35. He won a pair of playoff games against the Buckeyes and then was in goal for both losses in the second round versus Michigan when the Irish lost 2-1 in double overtime and 3-1 in game two. Rogers saw action in one game, a 9-2 home loss, to Northeastern, a game that had all three goaltenders see action. He played the final 15:24, giving up two goals on five shots. That left him with a 7.79 goals-against average and a .600 save percentage.

UNIVERSITY of NOTRE DAME®

Junior goaltender Steven Summerhays was 10-80 in 2011-12 with a 2.43 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage. He had back-to-back shutouts late in the season with a personal-best 124:35 shutout streak. With the graduation of Lorenz, Sam Calabrese (Park Ridge, Ill.) will take over as the senior leader of the Irish defense, a group that includes four juniors, two sophomores and one freshman. Calabrese, who was an honorable mention all-CCHA selection following his sophomore year, has all the tools to be one of the conference’s top defensemen. A strong skater with excellent puck-handling skills, he led all Notre Dame defenders in scoring last season with three goals and 13 assists for 16 points. He will now take on a leadership role for the Irish as he leads by example on the ice. Expect to see Calabrese play in all situations - even strength, on the power play and the penalty-killing unit - this season. The four juniors will all be in the running for major minutes on the blue line this season. Three of them - Stephen Johns (Wampum, Pa.), Kevin Lind (Homer Glen, Ill.) and Shayne Taker (Surrey, B.C. - saw plenty of action as sophomores while Jared Beers (Mishawaka, Ind.) is set to make his push for more playing time this season. Leading the group is Johns, who has made great strides in his first two seasons. At 6-4, 233-pounds, the big, physical defenseman has a certain presence when he’s on the ice. Known for his physical style, Johns makes the Irish a different team defensively when he’s on the ice. Opposing forwards have to account for him, as he does not shy away from the big, open-ice hits or the tough, gritty play in the corners and in front of the goal. While the physical game has never wavered for the Chicago Blackhawks draftee, his offensive skills have continued to improve. Strong on his skates, he handles the puck well and owns a big, booming shot from the point that he has worked on to get it off faster and with more accuracy. In 39 games last season, Johns had four goals with six assists for 10 points. His 71 penalty minutes were second on the team to Nick Larson’s 73. He too, will see duty in all situations for the Irish. Lind, along with Johns and Taker, brings size to the Irish defense. He checks in this season at 6-3, 223-pounds and continues to see his game grow. As a sophomore, Lind played in 39 games, scoring one goal with a pair


of assists for three points. During the second half of the ‘11-’12 season, you could see his game take a giant leap as he became a more consistent player who played with confidense. Strong on his skates, he moves the puck quickly and is a true stay-at-home defenseman. He will look to continue to mature on the ice this season and move into a top-four defensive role. Taker (pronounced Tacker) saw his game grow in‘11-’12 as he earned a larger role in the defensive scheme. At 6-4, 201-pounds, the junior continues to add weight to his frame. An offensive-minded defender with good speed and quickness, Taker saw action on the power play and began to develop an offensive flare. He played in all 40 games with two goals and five assists for seven points. A sound defender, Taker will look to become more physical in his own zone to keep opposing forwards honest. Beers, the local product from nearby Mishawaka, Ind., saw his playing time limited to just five games as a sophomore and will look to bounce back and get in the lineup this year. For Beers, who showed that he could play at the Division I level as a freshman, it was clearly a numbers game as the top six missed just three games all season. As a freshman, Beers played in 25 games with a goal and six assists while being +4 in the plus-minus department. A smart player, Beers has an opportunity to move back into the regular lineup this year. A pair of sophomores - Eric Johnson (Verona, Wis.) and Robbie Russo (Westmont, Ill.) - are part of the eight-man defensive corps. Johnson, the brother of Irish goaltender Mike Johnson, did not see any action as a freshman and will be looking to get his chance this season. A strong defensive-defenseman, Johnson has worked hard in the offseason and will look to break into the regular rotation this season. At 6-1, 191-pounds, Johnson is most effective when he plays a physcial style. He has the tools to become a solid collegiate defenseman but needs to become more confident and consistent in his all-around game. Russo made the jump from the U.S. Under-18 program to a regular spot in the Notre Dame lineup and had a strong rookie season. He was named to the CCHA all-rookie team and was the Irish rookie of the year. An offensive-minded

defender, Russo played in all 40 games, scoring four goals with 11 assists for 15 points on the year. All four of his goals came on the power play, as he quickly became the quarterback of the Notre Dame power play. A 2011 draft choice of the New York Islanders, Russo handles the puck well and moves it quickly in his own zone and in transition. He must become more consistent in the defensive zone to become a dominant collegiate defenseman. He has the tools and ability and now its up to him to make it happen. Rounding out the eight-man defensive unit is freshman Andy Ryan (Brighton, Mich.), who is the brother of 2011 graduate , Ben Ryan. A product of both the U.S. National Team Developmental Program and the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL, Ryan had a strong season last year in the USHL, playing for both Green Bay and Sioux City. He started the year with the Gamblers where he had three assists before being traded to Sioux City where he played in 43 games with four goals and 11 assists for 15 points and was +13. A skilled, solid defenseman, Ryan is strong in his own zone and has the ability to play at the Division I level. He will be in the running for playing time this year. On the offensive side of the puck, the Irish return the nucleus of a team that at times struggled in the goalscoring department, as they lit the lamp just 101 times for a 2.53 per game average compared to 151 the previous year (3.43 average). Notre Dame returns seven of its top-10 scoring forwards from last season, led by one of the nation’s top scoring duos of T.J. Tynan (Orland Park, Ill.) and Anders Lee (Edina, Minn.). Those two alone accounted for 30 goals and 45 assists for 75 points. The remaining five in that group had 27 goals and 31 assists for 58 points. The senior class includes just two forwards who will be looking to close out their careers in a big way this season. Nick Larson (Apple Valley, Minn.) and Kevin Nugent (New Canaan, Conn.) were regulars in the lineup in 201112 and both should see key roles this year. Larson is a 6-2, 198-pound left wing that has played in 113 games in his career. As a junior, he had five goals and three assists for eight points. Larson plays a physical style that makes him a force in front of the net and in the corners and has worked hard in the offseason in preparation for this season. He can be a presence in front of the net on the Notre Dame power play and has the ability to win battles for loose pucks. One of the team leaders in the locker room, look for big things from Larson this season. After wearing No. 26 for his first three seasons, he will wear No. 17 this season, a number that he has worn in the past. Nugent broke into the Irish lineup last season, earning minutes with his work ethic and ability to play Notre Dame’s system. At 6-3, 200-pounds, Nugent brought a competitive, feisty style to the ice and made his mark in a defensive role. A total team player, Nugent played in 26 games and had three assists while seeing time as a member of the Notre Dame penalty-killing unit. He is still looking for his first collegiate goal and will look to add to the offensive attack on a deep, talented group of players. Six forwards make up the Notre Dame junior class and they will be counted on to play a key role in the team’s offensive attack this season. While Tynan and Lee are the top scorers, the other four - Jeff Costello (Milwaukee, Wis.), David Gerths (Ankeny, Ia.), Bryan Rust (Novi, Mich.) and Mike Voran (Livonia, Mich.) - are the secondary scorers who saw their numbers slip a year ago. For the second-consecutive season, Tynan led Notre Dame in scoring as he had 13 goals and 28 assists for 41 points in 39 games. The speedy center is the ultimate competitor who can score, as well as, set up his teammates.

Junior defenseman Stephen Johns brings a physical presence to the Notre Dame blue line. Known for his thundering checks, John continues to improve his offensive game. As a sophomore, he was the CCHA’s co-scoring leader with nine goals and 20 assists in 28 games to become the first Notre Dame player to win or share a CCHA scoring title in the 22 years the Irish have been in the conference. A first-team all-CCHA selection, Tynan was Notre Dame’s team MVP and top forward. Among his 13 goals were five power-play goals, two short-handed goals and a game winner. At 5-8, 165, Tynan has incredible hockey instincts and the ability to play at both ends of the ice. He brings speed and tenacity to the ice that opens things up for his linemates. A magician with the puck, he has the knack for finding the open man while also having the ability to score from anywhere on the ice. Tynan’s biggest obstacle in his junior season is the fact that he is a marked man as the opposition will do just about anything to slow down the top returning Irish point producer. While they are keeping an eye on Tynan, opponents can’t forget Lee who is one of the nation’s top snipers, racking up 41 goals in his first two seasons. The junior will serve as the lone team captain this season and is the consummate team leader both on and off the ice for the Irish. An honorable mention all-CCHA selection in ‘11-’12, Lee is the prototypical power forward who was second to Tynan with 17 goals and 17 assists for 34 points. He tied for the team lead with seven power-play goals and chipped in one game winner. The 6-3, 220-pounder who has played his first two seasons at left wing will move to center as a junior to give the Irish size, strength and leadership through the middle. Lee has played in the middle before during his high school and junior career. Like Tynan, Lee will have a bull’s eye on his back as opponents will want to prevent him from doing his damage. The veteran forward would love to get off to a fast start like he did a year ago, when he had 10 goals and three assists for 13 points in his first seven games. A key to the Notre Dame success this season will be the team’s secondary scoring and the four remaining juniors hope to do their share of damage on the scoresheet. Playing on the left side is Costello who has shown a

penchant for scoring key goals in his first two seasons. He had 12 as a freshman but scored just five last season as his year was marred by injuries early and again late in the season. Despite getting just five goals last year, three of them were game winners and among his 17 career goals are six game-clinching markers. A tough, hard-nosed forward, the 6-0, 212-pound portsider plays the game with an edge that his team responds to. He gets many of his scoring chances from in front of the net and he will be a contributor on the power play. Gerths has seen action both at center and right wing during his first two seasons and figures to anchor the team’s fourth line. Like Costello, he plays the game with and edge and doesn’t shy away from the physical play. After getting eight goals as a freshman, the 6-0, 217-pound right-shot forward had just four assists last season. One of the team’s“energy”players, Gerths has good hands and can make plays around the net. Solid on face offs, he will be counted on this year. Rust saw his numbers drop too as he had five goals and six assists for 11 points after picking up 19 points (6g, 13a) the previous year. A proven goal scorer throughout his career, the 5-11, 202-pound right wing brings speed to the roster and has played in all situations at Notre Dame. As a

20

sophomore, he moved into a key role as one of the teams’ top penalty killers and could be ready for a breakout year. By becoming more physical, making plays in the corners and along the boards, he can use his offensive talents to create more scoring chances for his linemates. Voran also had 19 points playing right wing as a freshman only to see his numbers drop to five goals and five assists for 10 points a year ago. After a slow start, he did see his game come on in the second half. The 5-11, 188-pound forward has excellent hockey smarts and the ability to set up goals or score them. He gives the Irish versatilty along the front line as he can play a variety of roles and do them well. He has always been a scorer everywhere he’s played and will be looking to get back into that role again this season. There are just two forwards among the sophomore class and they both line up at right wing. Peter Schneider (Vienna, Austria) and Austin Wuthrich (Anchorage, Alaska) both saw plenty of action in their rookie seasons and will be counted on this year. Schneider, a native of Austria, got his feet wet a year ago, playing in 23 games and scoring a pair of goals with four assists. A talented scorer in juniors, Schneider has a tremendous work ethic and has outstanding instincts with the puck. The ‘11-’12 season was his year to adapt to Division I college hockey and this year he should take the next step in becoming a bonafide scorer. The 5-11, 192-pound right wing has tremendous speed and will look to use it to force opponents into mistakes this season. Wuthrich came into his freshman season as an unknown and turned an outstanding rookie year into becoming a fourth-round draft choice of the Washington Capitals. He led all Irish freshmen in scoring with seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points and fit right into the lineup. A big,(6-1, 198) quick forward, Wuthrich scored some big goals and played with a physical edge. He led the team with a +4 on the year. A hard-working player with good hockey instincts, the Alaska native saw action in a variety of roles as a freshman and will be counted on again this season. The final four forwards come from the freshman class and have to rank among the top rookie forwards in the nation.Thomas DiPauli (Woodridge, Ill.) Steven Fogarty (Edina, Minn.), Sam Herr (Hinsdale, Ill.) and Mario Lucia (Plymouth, Minn.) bring size, quickness and plenty of offensive skills to Notre Dame this year and all played for championship teams a year ago. DiPauli is a product of the U.S. National Developmental Program and can play center or wing. He has outstanding hockey smarts and does all the little things well, like protect the puck, kill penalties and win face offs. His speed opens the ice for his linemates. At 5-11, 185, he has the ability to control play and the speed of the game. With the USA Under-18 team last season he had 10 goals and 11 assists in 55 games and served as an alternate team captain on the team that won the gold medal in the Under-18 World Championships last April. Fogarty hails from Minnesota but took his game to British Columbia last season to play for the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL). A thirdround draft choice of the New York Rangers in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the 6-3 center was seventh in scoring at Penticton with 33 goals and 49 assists for 82 points. At 6-3, 202-pounds, Fogarty adds to Notre Dame’s size at center. Loaded with potential, he knows how to use his size and skating ability to protect the puck and make plays. He’s got good hands and can score in the clutch as he had 10 game winners last season. His skills helped Penticton to the BCHL regular-season and playoff championships and the RBC Cup as the champion of Canadian junior hockey. Herr (pronounced Hair)will patrol the left side and

was originally known as a hard-nosed defensive scorer. Last year in the USHL with the Green Bay Gamblers, he blossomed into a scorer, helping the Gamblers to the USHL’s Clark Cup title. Herr spent two seasons in Green Bay and is an “honest” hockey player with outstanding character and leadership skills. He checks in at 6-0 and 204 pounds and has excellent hockey skills and the ability to do the little things well. With Green Bay last season, Herr was 12th in the USHL scoring race with 30 goals and 26 assists for 56 points in 55 games. He tied for the league lead with a +35 plus-minus and chipped in eight power-play goals and four game winners. In the playoffs, Herr added seven goals and nine assists for 16 points and was named the most valuable player of the playoffs. Rounding out the freshman group at forward is Lucia, another Minnesota native, who played in the BCHL with Penticton a year ago where he was Fogarty’s teammate. The talented left wing who is the son of former Irish defenseman and current University of Minnesota head coach Don Lucia‘81, helped his Vee teammates to the BCHL regular-season and postseason title and then the RBC Cup championship. He was second on the team with 42 goals and 52 assists for 94 points, getting 14 power-play goals, two shorties and two game winners on the way to being the Interior Division’s rookie of the year. Lucia, a second-round draft choice of the Minnesota Wild in 2011, has all the tools to be a standout offensive player for the Irish. At 6-3, 193 pounds, he is a strong skater with great hands and natural goal-scoring ability. He’s got great vision on the ice and makes things happen when he has the puck. The 2012-13 Irish have a great mix of veteran players and an energetic group of underclassmen who will look to prove they can play at a high level night in and night out. If Notre Dame can return to it’s scoring ways of two years ago, they have the defense and the goaltending to take them a long way.

Sophomore right wing Austin Wuthrich got off to a strong start in his rookie year with seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points. The 2012 fourth-round pick of the Washington Capitals will look to build on that success this season.

2012-13 NCAA Ice Hockey Rules Points of Emphasis

In this rules cycle, the “Point of Emphasis” section calls attention to one area of the game that the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey Rules Committee believes must be improved, not through additional rules but by a stronger emphasis on existing rules. The rules committee requests that players, officials and coaches concentrate on the following area: Contact to the Head This is an important safety issue and the committee is concerned about some violent contact that has occurred in the game and caused injury. To make this rule clearer, any time a player targets the head or neck area of an opponent, it must be a major penalty and a game misconduct penalty at a minimum. This rule is not intended to cover incidental contact or contact with the head that occurs that should be a minor penalty (e.g., unintentional high stick, body check where the contact is initiated at the shoulder or torso, but the follow through makes some contact with the head). Clear direction is being provided here to assist officials, coaches and players with this rule. The committee expects a heightened awareness to direct contact to head, but it should be noted that many contact to the head fouls in previous seasons that were minor penalties should remain minor penalties (e.g., an incidental high sticking foul would remain a minor for high sticking). The committee reminds coaches and players that the responsibility remains with the player making the hit to avoid contact with the head and neck area of an opposing player. Any contact which directly targets the player’s head and neck area must be penalized with a major penalty and a game misconduct or disqualification. A player delivering a check to an unsuspecting and vulnerable player puts themselves in jeopardy of being penalized under this rule. Officials are to pay particular attention to these examples when applying this rule. These are intended as guidance and include, but are not limited to, the following: • Direct contact with the head or neck in any manner from any direction; • A player that is reckless; • A player that has just released a shot or pass; • A player that is about to receive a pass; • A player that delivers a late hit; • A player that extends and directs the arm, elbow, forearm or shoulder to contact the head and neck area of the opponent; • A player that extends the body and targets the opponent’s head or neck area; • A player that leaves their skates or launches in order to deliver a blow to the head or neck area of the opposing player; and • A player that uses the stick in any way to target the head or neck area (e.g., cross checking, butt-ending, etc.). As additional guidance, when the initial force of the contact is a shoulder to the body of the opponent and slides up to the head or neck area, this is not classified as contact to the head. This type of action may still be penalized, at the referee’s discretion, as another penalty (e.g., charging, roughing, elbowing, etc.). Indirect Contact to the Head When the initial force of the contact is thru the body of the opponent and then slides up to the head or neck area, the committee believes this type of indirect contact to the head action may still be penalized, at the referee’s discretion, as another minor penalty (e.g., elbowing, roughing, high sticking, charging etc.) When officials penalize this type of infraction, the committee is requiring that officials assess this penalty placing the wording“indirect contact to the head – elbowing, etc.”This will allow for a consistent seasonal tracking of these types of indirect contact to the head minor penalties. This is in no way intended to replace or encourage a lessening of contact to the head penalties.

Coaching Staff

Head coach Jeff Jackson begins his eighth season behind the Irish bench. In his first seven campaigns at Notre Dame, Jackson owns a 160-97-30 mark with two trips to the Frozen Four (2008 and 2011), four NCAA appearances and a pair of CCHA regular-season and postseason titles (2007 and 2009).


Head Coach Jeff Jackson Head Coach Eighth Season at Notre Dame Michigan State ‘78 The 2012-13 campaign marks Jeff Jackson’s eighth season guiding the University of Notre Dame’s hockey fortunes. In his first seven years behind the bench, the program has enjoyed many of its greatest moments. The Jackson Era began in 2005 when the University searched for a man who could move the program among the elite hockey schools in the country. That search took them in one direction - Jeff Jackson. The veteran coach owned a resume packed with success at the collegiate, junior hockey, professional

Jeff Jackson is the fourth head coach in the 45-year modern history of the Notre Dame hockey program. In 13 seasons as a Division I head coach, Jackson owns a 342-149-55 career record and his .677 winning percentage is the best among active coaches.

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 seven seasons as the guiding force behind Notre Dame hockey, it’s safe to say that the Irish hit a home run with the selection of the highly popular coach. 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 six seasons, Jackson’s icers are among the winningest programs in the nation in wins and winning percentage, going 147-78-26 (.637) 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-consecutive NCAA tournament appearances for the first time in the program’s 45-year history. Jackson’s success on the ice also has had a major impact off the ice for the Irish. With the wins came a commitment from the University that led to the new home of Irish hockey - The Compton Family Ice Arena - one of the finest college hockey facilities in the nation. The new venue opened for business on Oct. 21, 2011. Jackson and his team experienced a wild rollercoaster ride of a season in 2011-12. Notre Dame entered the year ranked No. 1 in the preseason rankings - another first for the program. An 11-game unbeaten streak (8-0-3) through the early part of the schedule gave the Irish a 10-2-3 record at the end of November. In December, the wild ride began as the team started the month with four straight losses. They ended the 2011 portion of the schedule with three consecutive wins against Ferris State, Boston University and Minnesota, all top-10 teams at the time. Notre Dame would go just 4-10 over its final 14 games to finish the regular season tied for eighth in the CCHA with a 12-13-3 league mark. The Irish defeated Ohio State, two games to none, in the first round of the playoffs before dropping a pair at Michigan in the second round to finish 19-18-3 overall. In 2010-11, Notre Dame went on a magical run to the Frozen Four. The Irish went 25-14-5 overall while leading the CCHA until the final week of the season. They finished 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 champion, Minnesota Duluth, with a 4-3 loss. For his efforts, the veteran coach was selected as the CCHA’s coach of the year for the third time (‘90-

The Frozen Four run in 2011 served as a bounceback year for Notre Dame as the Irish struggled the prior season, battling injuries and a scoring slump 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. 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


In 13 seasons coaching in the CCHA, Irish head coach Jeff Jackson has been named the CCHA’s coach of the year three times, including twice (‘06-’07 and ‘10-11) while at Notre Dame. Following the 2006-07 season, he was honored as the national coach of the year with the Spencer Penrose Award. 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. 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 All-American as defenseman Ian Cole took first-team honors while Erik Condra was a second-team choice. In 2007-08, the Irish were 27-16-4 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 “the Joe,” 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 weekend 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 championships. 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. 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 seven seasons guiding the Irish, Jackson has seen the program go from five wins to 13 victories in his first season, to 147 wins over the last six years. For his tenure behind the Notre Dame bench, Jackson is 160-97-30 for a .610 winning percentage. The 57-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

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 seven 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 22 players selected in the National Hockey League Entry Draft, including four in the first round. In that same span, 15 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 six 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 2012-13 season with a 13-year collegiate record of 342-149-55 for a .677 winning percentage, the best percentage among all active Division I coaches with five years or more in Division I. His 342 career wins ranks eighth 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. The highly regarded Jackson brings over 25 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-plus 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 Minnesota-Duluth 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 thirdperiod 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 championship game, Jackson’s team rebounded by winning overtime games versus Northeastern (6-5), Michigan (5-4) and Harvard (3-2) to face Boston University in the title game at St. Paul, Minn. The Terriers weren’t much of a match for the Lakers as they recorded their second championship in three years with a 9-1 win. Jackson’s Lakers followed their second championship season in 1994-95 with a 23-12-6 record and won their fourth CCHA tournament title. In the NCAA tournament, Lake Superior defeated Clarkson in the first game of the East Regional and then lost to Boston University in the Regional final. In his final season in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Jackson saw the Lakers return to the 30-win plateau, going 30-8-2 overall and winning their second regular-season title with a 22-6-2 mark. Lake Superior lost to Michigan in the CCHA title game (just the second CCHA tournament loss in Jackson’s six years 24-2) and saw the season come to an end with a loss in the East Regionals to Vermont. During his six years guiding the Lakers, Jackson produced 12 All-Americans (five first team and seven second team), one Academic All-American, and in 1991, he was recognized as the CCHA coach of the year. He is just one of 12 coaches to win multiple NCAA championships. From 1993-96, he also served as the Director of Athletics at Lake Superior. Several of Jackson’s players advanced to play in the NHL. The list includes: Doug Weight, Brian Rolston, Keith Aldridge, Blaine Lacher, John Grahame, Bates Battaglia and Jim Dowd. He was inducted into the Lake Superior State University athletics hall of fame on July 23, 2009. On June 7, 1996, Jackson was named the national coach and senior director of the newly founded U.S. National Team Development program based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In his first season while putting the program in place, he served as the head coach for the United States Junior National Team that captured the silver medal at the 1997 World Junior Championships, at the time, the best finish ever for the U.S. team. The following year, Jackson served as an assistant coach for Team USA at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. In his four years directing the national program, eight former Notre Dame players came from the developmental program. In 2000, Jackson left the U.S. program and took over as coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s (OHL) Guelph Storm where he turned a losing franchise around, finishing in second place in his first season with a 34-23-9-2 record. In the 2001-02 season, the Storm went 37-23-7-1 and hosted the Memorial Cup, advancing to the tiebreaker game where they lost to Victoriaville. In two-and-a-half seasons in Guelph, Jackson had an 87-67-24-4 record.

Associate Head Coach Paul Pooley Ohio State ‘84 Eighth Season at Notre Dame Ohio State ‘84 Paul Pooley returns for his eighth season at Notre Dame as the team’s associate head coach. He was named to the position on June 3, 2005, by head coach Jeff Jackson. For Pooley, this marks the second tour of duty serving as Jackson’s associate head coach. During his first stint at Lake Superior State (1992-94), Pooley was instrumental in the Lakers’ success as they advanced to the NCAA finals three times, winning in 1992 and 1994. In just seven seasons at Notre Dame, Pooley, along with Jackson and fellow assistant, Andy Slaggert, has helped change the culture of Irish hockey. After a 13-19-4 first season, Pooley has seen the last six Notre Dame teams go a combined 147-78-26, win a pair of CCHA regular-season and tournament titles (2007, 2009) and advance to the NCAA Tournament four times (2006-09, 2011), including a pair of trips to the Frozen Four (2008, 2011). Overseeing the Irish defense, Pooley has seen Notre Dame give up the fewest goals per game (1.67 in ‘06-’07), the fifth fewest in ‘07-’08 (2.13) and the fewest again in ‘08-’09, just 1.71 per game. The veteran coach joined the Irish staff after spending 11 seasons (1994-2005) as head coach at Providence College. During those 11 seasons, Pooley’s Friars were a combined 185-187-40, winning the Hockey East title in 1995-96 and appearing in two NCAA tournaments (1996 and 2001). In making the announcement of Pooley’s hiring, Jackson said, “Paul Pooley brings a certain level of integrity, work ethic and professionalism that I have

Paul Pooley teams with head coach Jeff Jackson, associate coach Andy Slaggert and volunteer assistant Jason Nightingale to give Notre Dame one of the top coaching staffs in all of college hockey. He is in his second stint with Jackson as the duo teamed up to guide Lake Superior State to NCAA titles in 1992 and 1994. great respect for. Our relationship in the past became a friendship, but our experience in the past will stay in the past. We’re hoping to re-establish a new center of excellence similiar to the one that we had at Lake Superior State together.” As Jackson’s associate head coach, Pooley brings over 20 years of coaching experience to Notre Dame. The 2001 Hockey East and New England coach of the year and a two-time finalist for the Spencer Penrose Award as the national coach of the year, Pooley was instrumental in the development of four All-American players during his tenure at Providence - forwards Chad Quenneville and Devin Rask, goaltender Nolan Schaefer and defenseman Stephen Wood. Six players who played for him with the Friars - Hal Gill, Joe Hulbig, Fernando Pisani, Mike Farrell, Jon DeSalvatore and Schaefer went on to play in the National Hockey League. At Notre Dame, he has been instrumental in seven defensemen - Noah Babin (Carolina), Wes O’Neill (Colorado), Ian Cole (St. Louis), Kyle Lawson (Carolina), Teddy Ruth (Columbus), Joe Lavin (Chicago) and Sean Lorenz (Minnesota) - signing NHL contracts. During that same time frame, Lawson was named a second team CCHA all-star and the league’s best defensive defenseman (‘08-’09), Cole was a first

refers student-athletes to campus offices where 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. A $14-million building, the James and Leah Rae Morse Center for Academic Services houses Notre Dame’s First Year of Studies Program and Academic Services for Student-Athletes. It also contains the University Writing Center and a satellite office for the Center for Social Concerns, plus classrooms, staff offices, a tutoring center, a computer cluster, workrooms and a lounge. Working alongside the athletic department’s Student Welfare and Development office, Academic Services helps coordinate numerous workshops and speakers to assist student-athletes with post-graduate planning and transition into professional careers. Offered in conjunction with the University Counseling Center, workshops cover such topics as stress management, socialization to college life, adjusting to physical trauma and conflict management.

Season In Review Irish Have Rollercoaster Season In 2011-12

Notre Dame starts the year ranked No. 1 in preseason but finishes with 19-18-3 mark.

The Notre Dame hockey team moved to the Compton Family Ice Arena to open play on Oct. 21, 2011. Anders Lee scored the first-ever goal and finished with a hat trick as the Irish handed Rensselaer a 5-2 loss in front of an opening-night sellout crowd of 5,022. FAREWELL TO THE JOYCE CENTER – With the opening of the Compton Family Ice Arena, the Irish played their final games at the Joyce Center when they opened the year on Oct. 14-15 with Ohio State. Notre Dame won the first game of the series, 5-2, before losing the last game, 4-3, to the Buckeyes. In the 44-years of use, Notre Dame played 723 games at the Joyce Center and had a record of 374-290-59 for a .558 winning percentage. NEW HOME – During the 2011-12 season, Notre Dame began play in the brand new Compton Family Ice Arena on Oct. 21, 2011, opening with a 5-2 win over Rensselaer. Sophomore Anders Lee christened the building in grand style, scoring the first goal on the ice of the Charles “Lefty” Smith Rink before finishing the game with a hat trick. Mike Johnson picked up the first win in goal by making 15 saves while Sean Lorenz ‘12 had the game-winning goal. In 19 home games at the Compton Family Ice Arena, Notre Dame was 127-0 and saw 91,793 fans go through the turnstiles for an average of 4,793 per game with 11 of the 19 games sellouts of 5,022 CONFERENCE CALL – The Hockey East Association and the University of Notre Dame announced on Oct. 5, 2011 that the Fighting Irish had been accepted into the league as the 11th member

school and will begin play starting in 201314. In making the announcement, Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna said, “It is not an overstatement to say that this is one of the most significant days in the history of our conference. The addition of new institutions is always exciting but Notre Dame brings a unique set of qualities and circumstances to the continued growth of our league. We are proud to welcome Notre Dame into the fold and we look forward to getting to the many details that come with this announcement.” Notre Dame Vice President and Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick said, “We are excited to be joining Hockey East beginning in the 201314 season. Many factors played a role in our decision, but three were of special importance to us. The first two were the critical issues of the student-athlete experience and Notre Dame’s fit with the other schools in the conference. But of special importance in this instance, was our goal of giving our hockey program an unprecedented level of national exposure through our expanded partnership with the NBC Sports Group. Athletics at Notre Dame has always served as a platform for promoting the University.” Notre Dame head coach Jeff Jackson added, “We are honored and pleased to join Hockey East for the 2013-14 season. The conference is an established league with a great tradition and

UNIVERSITY of NOTRE DAME®

outstanding programs that share Notre Dame’s values. The exposure for our players and team in a major media and NHL market will be second to none. Hockey East’s commitment to playing a smaller league schedule will allow us to enhance our home and non-conference schedule with traditional western and Big Ten rivals. This will allow us to bring great games to the Compton Family Ice Arena and create a more diverse, nationally-televised schedule. We are grateful to Joe Bertagna and the Hockey East Association members for this tremendous opportunity.” Notre Dame will play its 23rd season as a member of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) in 2012-13 and has had two stints with the CCHA during its 44 years of Division I hockey. The Irish first joined the conference from 1981-83 and then again in 1992 through the 2012-13 season. During that time, Notre Dame has won two CCHA regular-season and postseason tournament titles (2007 and 2009). ROLLER COASTER RIDE – The 2011-12 season was a series of ups and downs for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish hockey team. After starting the season with a 2-2-0 mark after four games, the Irish went on an 11-game unbeaten streak (8-0-3) and were 10-2-3 at the end of November. Notre Dame then lost four straight games to open December before winning three straight to improve to 13-6-3 on Jan. 7. The Irish then


dropped a pair to Western Michigan before closing January and moving into February with a 3-3-0 mark over those six games. That left Notre Dame with a 16-11-3 record on Feb. 14. The Irish then closed out the final month of the regular season by going 1-5-0 before closing the year with a 2-2-0 mark in the first two rounds of the CCHA playoffs for a 19-18-3 overall record. SCORING CHAMP – Sophomore center T.J. Tynan became the first Notre Dame player to win or share a CCHA scoring title in the 22 years that the Irish have played in the conference. Tynan finished the CCHA regular-season schedule with nine goals and 20 assists for 29 points in 28 league games to tie for the scoring lead with Michigan State’s Torey Krug. He becomes just the second Irish hockey player to win a conference scoring corwn as he joins Eddie Bumbacco ‘74 who won the WCHA scoring title in the 1972-73 season with 31 goals and 34 assists for 65 points in 28 league games. ALL-CCHA HONORS – Sophomore center T.J.Tynan was selected first team all-CCHA, becoming the first Irish player selected first team since defenseman Ian Cole was chosen in 200809. To date, Notre Dame has had four first team selections in the program’s history - Tynan and Cole are joined by goaltender David Brown ‘07 and defenseman Benoit Cotnoir ‘99. Tynan is the first Irish player selected all-CCHA twice in his career in the 22 years that Notre Dame has been a member of the conference. Tynan’s linemate, Anders Lee, was an honorable mention choice in ‘11-’12 after being a second team selection as a freshman. ROOKIE HONORS – Freshman defenseman Robbie Russo was named to the CCHA’s all-rookie team for his play during the 2011-12 season. Russo was second among Irish defensemen in scoring with four goals and 11 assists for 15 points. His 15 points made him the top scoring blueliner among rookie defensemen in the CCHA. Russo becomes the 14th Notre Dame player chosen to the CCHA’s all-rookie team and is the first defenseman named since Kyle Lawson ‘10 was selected to the 2006-07 all-rookie team. A CLASS ACT – Notre Dame senior defenseman Sean Lorenz 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. SHUTOUT STREAK – Irish goaltender Steven Summerhays recorded back-to-back shutouts, the first two whitewashings of his career, in wins over Michigan State (Feb. 24) and Ohio State

(March 2). Summerhays set a career high personal shutout streak in that span with 124:35 minutes of shutout hockey. The consecutive shutouts are the first for one Irish goaltender since Jordan Pearce ‘09 shutout Nebraska-Omaha in back-to-back games March 13-14, 2009 in the CCHA playoffs. The back-to-back blankings are the first for Notre Dame since Oct. 16 and Oct. 23, 2009 when Mike Johnson shutout Providence, 2-0 and Brad Phillips blanked Boston University, 3-0. FOR THE RECORD – Senior center Billy Maday ‘12 became the 46th player in the program’s history to reach 100 points for his career on Feb. 25 against Michigan State when he assisted on an Anders Lee goal. For his career, Maday finished tied for 41st on the all-time scoring list with 105 career points on 45 goals and 60 assists. T.J. Tynan will be the next Notre Dame player to join the “Century Club” as he finished his sophomore year with 36 goals and 59 assists for 95 points in his first 83 games. Defenseman Sean Lorenz ‘12 also finished in the top 10 on Notre Dame’s all-time games played list as he is ninth, having played in 157 career games. PENALTY SHOTS – The 2011-12 season saw two penalty shots taken at the Compton Family Ice Arena in one week, one for the Irish and one against with both shots turning into goals. On Nov. 11, 2011, Riley Sheahan was awarded a penalty shot versus Alaska at 9:53 of the first period of the 5-4 Irish win. He beat the Nanooks’ Scott Greenham to tie the score at 2-2. One week later - Nov. 18, 2011 - Boston College’s Chris Kreider was awarded a penalty shot after an Irish defender covered a loose puck in the crease with his hand. Kreider scored on Mike Johnson at 19:47 of the first period of a game won by Notre Dame, 3-2, in overtime. UNBEATEN STREAKS – Notre Dame recorded an 11-game unbeaten streak (8-0-3) from Oct. 21 to Nov. 25 that ranks as the fifth longest unbeaten streak in the program’s history. During that streak, goaltender Mike Johnson had a personal-best 10-game unbeaten streak (7-0-3). His streak started on Oct. 14 against Ohio State and lasted to Nov. 25 with a win at Lake Superior State. The streak ended for both the Irish and Johnson in a 5-2 loss against the Lakers on Nov. 26. LONG TIME – Notre Dame’s 4-3 win on Jan. 7 at Minnesota was the first win for the Irish against the Gophers since Nov. 8, 1980, a 6-5 win at Mariucci Arena. That was the final game the two teams played as members of the WCHA. Since that final game, the teams had met just three times over 31 seasons with the Gophers winning all three of those contests until the Notre Dame win last January. RUSSIAN VISITORS – For the first time in the history of the Notre Dame hockey program, the Irish played a team from Russia as the Russian Red Stars, a team of 18-to-20 year-old all stars from the Minor Hockey League (MHL), visited the

Notre Dame defeated the Russian squad by a 2-1 margin. Besides teams from USA Hockey, the Irish have played just one other international team in the 44-year history of the program. That came on Jan. 3, 1973 when Notre Dame hosted a touring team from Czechoslovakia at the Joyce Center. OVERTIME NUMBERS – Notre Dame’s doubleovertime loss to Michigan in the opening game of the second round of the 2012 CCHA playoffs snapped a 26-game unbeaten streak (7-0-19) for the Irish in overtime. Prior to the loss to Michigan, Notre Dame’s last overtime loss came on March 21, 2008, a 2-1 loss to Miami in the CCHA semifinals. During the 2011-12 season, the Irish were 2-0-3 in overtime during the regular season with overtime wins versus Alaska (Nov. 12) and Boston College (Nov. 18).

Tynan and Shayne Taker scored for the Irish in regulation while Chris Kreider scored on a first-period penalty shot and Johnny Gaudreau got the equalizer with 2:10 left in the third to send the game to overtime … the dramatic win ran Notre Dame’s current unbeaten streak to nine games (7-0-2) since Oct. 21 and improves the Irish to 9-2-2 on the year … the Eagles fall to 9-4-0 on the season … the overtime game was the fourth for Notre Dame in the last six games and the Irish are 2-0-2 on the year … since March 21, 2008, Notre Dame is unbeaten in its last 25 overtime games, going 7-0-18 in extra action … on the night that the Compton Family Ice Arena was officially dedicated and with many of the donors and benefactors for the magnificent oncampus arena watching, the Irish and the Eagles put on an exciting show …

Sophomore Bryan Rust was the hero as he scored with 1.1 seconds left in overtime to give the Irish a 3-2 win over Boston College in the “Dedication Game” at the Compton Family Ice Arena on Nov. 18.

Tynan finally broke Chris Rawley’s shutout bid when he scored from the top of the right circle at 19:47 to make it 6-1 going into the second intermission ... the final period started just like the first two as Northeastern got on the scoreboard just 13 seconds after the face off as Pimm scored his second of the night to make it 7-1 ...

Minneapolis, Minn. – Junior center Riley Sheahan scored twice and added an assist to help lead third-ranked Notre Dame to a 4-3 win over fifth-ranked Minnesota in front of 10,242 at Mariucci Arena in college hockey’s annual Hall of Fame game ... joining Sheahan on the scoresheet for the Irish were T.J. Tynan and Jeff Costello ... Taylor Mattson, Nick Bjugstad and Zach Budish scored for Minnesota ... goaltender Steven Summerhays made a career-high 31 saves in the game ... the win was the first for Notre Dame against the Gophers since Nov. 8, 1980 when the Irish won a 6-5 decision at the old Mariucci Arena when the teams were members of the WCHA ... since then they had met just three times with Minnesota winning all three meetings ... the win was the third straight for Notre Dame versus a ranked team and improved the Irish to 13-6-3 on the season ... special teams were key for the Irish as they scored twice on the power play and added a short-handed goal ... despite being out shot, 14-5, in the opening period, Notre Dame scored the lone goal when Tynan fired a Robbie Russo rebound past Kent Patterson at 17:54 for a power-play goal to make it 1-0 ... the Gophers would tie the score at 1-1 at 9:16 of the second period with a power-play goal of their own as Mattson poked a rebound behind Summerhays for his seventh goal of the year ... from there, Sheahan took over, scoring twice, to give Notre Dame a 3-1 lead after two periods ... his first came on the power play as he drilled a shot from the right circle past

Notre Dame’s lead went to 4-1 at 13:44 of the third when Sheahan won a draw to Costello who drilled a laser past Patterson for his third of the season ... the Gophers weren’t done though as they scored twice in a 25-second span with less than three minutes left in the game ... Bjugstad scored on the power-play at 17:13 for his 17th of the year and Budish made it 4-3 at 17:44 when he put a rebound behind Summerhays for his sixth goal of the year ... that would be it though as Summerhays held on for his fifth consecutive decision ... Patterson finished with 26 saves on the night as Minnesota held the edge in shots, 34-30 ... prior to the start of the game, the University of Minnesota held a moment of silence in honor of former Irish coach Charles “Lefty” Smith who passed away on Jan. 3 ... Smith was a native of South St. Paul, Minn., and Gopher head coach Don Lucia played for Smith at Notre Dame from 1977-81 ... Notre Dame’s win over fifth-ranked Minnesota capped a big day for Irish athletics as earlier in the day, the men’s basketball team upset No. 11 Louisville, 67-65, in double overtime and the third-ranked women’s basketball team defeated second-ranked Connecticut, 74-67, at Purcell Pavilion. #3/#5 Notre Dame #5/#3 Minnesota

The 2012-13 season will mark the final season for the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) as one of college hockey’s premier hockey conferences. Due to the changes in the college hockey landscape during the 2011-12 season, beginning with the birth of the Big Ten hockey conference and the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC), the 11-member CCHA saw its teams on the move prior to the start of last year. Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State announced that those hockey programs would begin play in the sixteam Big Ten hockey conference along with Minnesota, Penn State and Wisconsin with the start of the 2013-14 season. Notre Dame moved to the well-established Hockey East Association while Miami and Western Michigan joined the NCHC along with former WCHA members Colorado College, Denver, Minnesota Duluth, Nebraska-Omaha, North Dakota and St. Cloud State for the start of the ‘13-’14. That left five CCHA teams - Alaska, Bowling Green, Ferris State, Lake Superior State and Northern Michigan that then joined with the remaining WCHA schools - Alaska Anchorage, Bemidji State, Michigan Tech and Minnesota State to form the new WCHA. During its first 41 seasons, the CCHA established itself as one of college hockey’s top conferences. During the 2011-12 season, five schools - Ferris State, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State and Western Michigan - advanced to the NCAA Championship with Ferris State going to the Frozen Four finals. To date, CCHA teams have won eight NCAA championships over the last 29 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 Frozen Four 23 times in those same 29 seasons, with Michigan (9) and Michigan State (7) leading the way. The ‘10-’11 campaign 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 honor. The CCHA began play 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

UNIVERSITY of NOTRE DAME®

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 conference, 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 when UNO departed for the WCHA. This season, Notre Dame will play four games (two home and two away) versus Bowling Green, Michigan, Michigan State and Western Michigan with two games against Alaska, Ferris State and Lake Superior at home and two games at Miami, Northern Michigan and Ohio State on the road for its 28-game conference schedule. One of the games versus Miami will be played at Chicago’s Soldier Field as part of the Hockey City Classic on Feb. 17. The playoff format that was put in place in 2010-11 will remain the same 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 the results count as ties overall to preserve the integrity of the national rankings. This season, in its final year, the conference will “Celebrate the Legacy,” and focus on the long and storied history of the CCHA that includes eight NCAA national championships, seven Hobey Baker Memorial Award winners, 179 All-Americans and 35 Stanley Cup champions. A logo has been designed that will be worn as a patch on both the home and away jerseys of each of the CCHA’s 11 member schools, by the league’s on-ice officials and will be used on websites, pocket schedules and other promotional items to celebrate the league’s last season of operation. The league plans to invite all CCHA alumni to the final CCHA Championship weekend, including the CCHA Awards, on March 21-23, 2013 at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

While most followers of Notre Dame’s 44-year Despite sporadic attempts to revive the program Prior to the start of the 1965-66 season, the hockey history know the story since the program from 1928 through the early 1960’s - including one University’s administration determined that hockey received Division I status in 1968, there are several game in which Heisman Trophy winner Angelo was to enter a “transition” period and the program earlier chapters that were the building blocks for the Bertelli was reported to have scored four goals was designated as a “minor sport.” That designation “Gold Standard” as we know it today.

Playing club roles, including coach, manager, secretary, advisor and trainer, and Castner who served as player-coach for two years and then coach following graduation, the program grew. 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, the Michigan Aggies (now Michigan State), Wisconsin, Culver Academy, St. Thomas and Assumption. While Castner led the team on ice, Cunningham played a key role off the frozen pond. According to the 1921 edition of The Dome, “Rev. W. F. Cunningham, C.S.C., manager of the team for two seasons, is the man who much of the success can be attributed. Father Cunningham is oblivious to ordinary difficulties and his spirit was the spirit of the team.” Castner 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 The Notre Dame hockey teams of the 1920s included several well-known members of the school’s football gained fame as the halfback in the Four Horsemen team.

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. On March 16, 1967, it was announced that the Notre Dame hockey program would move to varsity status in 1968 at the time the new Athletic and Convocation Center was set to open. In 1967-68, the club team played its final season - turning in a 13-3-0 mark - before making the move to Division I. 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 opened their decade of play in the WCHA with a 10-16-0 record and barely qualified for the playoffs. The following season saw four years of development pay off as Notre Dame proved it was capable of skating with the top 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, totalgoal 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

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

Irish Hockey History championship and a fourth-place finish in the regular-season 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. 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 112-15215 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 All-Time Notre Dame Hockey Coaches G.R.

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.

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.

The following year, the Irish traveled to higherseeded 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, with a fourth-place finish (14-11-3) in the CCHA. The Irish hosted regional-rival Western Michigan, winning the series, two games to one. Notre Dame did not have much success at the CCHA Super Six, losing in the opening game each year – 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 firstever NCAA Championship 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 (5-276), 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 first-ever 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 doubleovertime 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 went one step further, advancing to the NCAA Frozen Four where the Irish fell in the national championship game, 4-1, to Boston College. They 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 topranked team, Michigan, in the semifinals at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo. Freshman left wing Calle Ridderwall (Stockholm, Sweden) became an overnight Irish hero 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 their second CCHA regularseason 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.

Notre Dame faced off against Michigan in its first-ever Frozen Four appearance. The game was played at Denver’s Pepsi Center with the Irish winning in overtime, 5-4.

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. 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 Minnesota-Duluth 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 rookies 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. On Oct. 21, 2011, the Notre Dame hockey program entered a new era with the opening of the Compton Family Ice Arena. Behind Anders Lee’s (Edina, Minn.) hat trick, the Irish dispatched the R.P.I. Engineers, 5-2, in front of a sell-out crowd of 5,022, the largest to ever watch Notre Dame hockey in South Bend. The Irish would win their first five games at the new ice castle, including a dramatic 3-2 overtime win versus Boston College in the “Dedication Game,” on Nov. 18. Notre Dame experienced plenty of ups and downs during the 2011-12 season, opening the year ranked No. 1 in the preseason polls, finishing 19-18-3 overall and eighth in the CCHA race. Tynan highlighted the season by becoming a first team all-CCHA selection while being the conference’s co-leader in scoring. In seven seasons behind the Notre Dame bench, Jackson saw his teams record a 160-97-30 mark for a .610 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 44 years of the program, NHL teams have drafted 71 Irish players, including five in the 2007 and 2010 Entry Drafts. Since 2007, Notre Dame has seen four of its players Ian Cole (St. Louis ‘07,) Kyle Palmieri (Anaheim ‘09), Riley Sheahan (Detroit ‘10) and Jarred Tinordi (Montreal ‘10) - selected in the first round. The 2011-12 season saw nine former Notre Dame players see ice time with NHL teams. A total of 23 former Irish players have worn NHL jerseys with four of them - Nyrop (three times with Montreal), defenseman Don Jackson (three times with Edmonton), Brett Lebda (with Detroit in 2007-08) and Mark Eaton (Pittsburgh in 2008-09) — drinking from the Stanley Cup.

Here’s a look at the facility from the press box with a sellout crowd standing for the national anthem during the 2011-12 season.

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. Despite a three-goal, third period surge by the Irish, Notre Dame ended up on the losing end of a 4-3 decision to Ohio State in the final hockey game played at the Joyce Center. The date was Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011 and the game marked the 723rd Division I hockey game played in the 44-year old building. Just three days later - Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011 Notre Dame hockey said farewll to its old home as the players packed their bags, the offices were emptied and sticks, skates and equipment were shifted to the new Compton Family Ice Arena. The Joyce Center rink would soon cease to exist. The home of Notre Dame basketball, hockey and volleyball programs opened in 1968 as the Athletic and Convocation Center (ACC), and 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. The first hockey game was played there on Jan. 9, 1969 with Notre Dame taking an 8-5 win against Ohio University. 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. In addition to the newly renovated Purcell Pavillion on the south side of the building, the Joyce Center also is the home of the the Rolfs Aquatic Center opened on the eastside of the facility. The facility also contains the administrative and business side of the increasingly complex collegiate sports operation. 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.

The field house, and in particular the hockey facility, underwent a series of improvements over the years to give the the Irish more of a “home-ice advantage.” Renovations to coaches offices and the locker rooms along with the addition of a dividing curtain 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. The north arena was the home of Irish hockey and could be set up to hold 2,713 fans at normal seating and 2,763 with standing room. While not one of the most modern or comfortable facilities in the nation, the Notre Dame hockey team took ownership of its home ice and made the Joyce Center one of the “toughest barns,” in the CCHA. In 2006-07 and 2008-09, the Joyce Center was the home of two CCHA regular-season championship teams, going 13-2-2 and 13-3-2 respectively on home ice. Both those teams went on to win the CCHA tournament title at Joe Louis Arena later that season. In 2003-04, Notre Dame equaled a school record by going 15 games (13-0-2) without a home loss on the way to a 14-2-2 mark. The 14 home wins were the second-best win total surpassed only by the 18 home wins recorded by the 1987-88 squad. Five Irish teams (2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011) qualified for the NCAA Tournament with two of those teams advancing to the Frozen Four (‘08) and (‘11) with the 2008 squad advancing to the championship game. In 44 seasons, the Irish recorded an all-time record of 374-290-59 (.558) on the Joyce Center ice. The Joyce Center played host to 12 playoff series that saw the Irish go 18-10-1 between the WCHA and the CCHA. In nine CCHA playoff series, Notre Dame was 15-8-0, including 8-2-0 since 2005-06. In each of its final three seasons, the Joyce Center averaged better that a sellout crowd (2,713) per game topped by the 2010-11 campaign that saw the Irish average 2,801 per contest with 16 sellouts in 19 home dates.

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 • Alabama-Huntsville 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.

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

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 one-timer 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.

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

NCAA Tournament History 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.

2009 NCAA Tournament - First Round Midwest Regional Bemidji State 5 • #2 Notre Dame 1 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.

2011 NCAA Tournament - First Round Northeast Regional #9 Notre Dame 4 • #7 Merrimack 3 (OT) March 26, 2011 • Manchester, N.H. 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 goal and moved out the right with Lee in pursuit. As the defenseman cut inside at the right post, Lee took a swing at the puck and deflected it past Cannata to give Notre Dame its first and only lead of the night and the win, 4-3.

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.

NCAA Tournament History 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.

Notre Dame and Minnesota-Duluth face off at the 2011 Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minn. The Irish got off to a fast start in the game as Costello whipped a wrist shot from the top of the right circle past Bulldog goaltender Kenny Rieter just 49 seconds into the game for a 1-0 lead. Costello’s 12th goal of the season became the quickest for the Irish in NCAA postseason action. UMD answered with the first of three power-play goals at 3:04 when Brown turned and fired a shot from the left circle low to the ice that beat Mike Johnson through his pads for his 16th goal of the season. The Irish answered less than six minutes later on a Tynan’s 23rd goal of the season at 9:46. Nick Larson kept a Bulldog clearing attempt in at the right point and passed the puck across the blue line to Guentzel as he entered the Bulldog zone. Guentzel’s shot was wide of the goal but came off the boards to Tynan on the goal line. The freshman center tucked a shot inside the right post before Reiter could move across the crease to give the Irish a 2-1 lead. Just 1:06 later, the Bulldogs got their lone evenstrength goal when Schmidt broke down the left side and beat Johnson with a shot to the short side for his 10th of the year at 10:52 to tie the game at 2-2. Minnesota-Duluth took the lead for good at 13:31 via the power play when Mike Connolly netted his 28th goal of the season, whipping a shot from the between the hash marks past Johnson for a 3-2 lead.
