CCHA referees and linesmen are constantly challenged to earn their stripes in an officiating program that is a model throughout the hockey world for training, development and supervision of on-ice personnel. The CCHA director of officials, Steve Piotrowski, continues to enhance the CCHA’s relationship with the USA Hockey Officiating Program and the USAH Junior Officiating Development Program (JODP) to assist the league with identifying top officiating prospects for future opportunities with the CCHA. Piotrowski is committed to identifying, recruiting, selecting, and developing a superior officiating staff that represents the performance standards established by the CCHA while enforcing the rules and interpretations of college hockey as established by the NCAA. “This continues to be a mutually beneficial relationship as we look to recruit on-ice officials who have promising potential to succeed,” said Piotrowski. “The JODP is an excellent resource for us as we look to identify the best officials for the CCHA both now, and in the future.” In 2010, CCHA officials were chosen to work on college hockey’s grandest stage as referees Matt Shegos and Mark Wilkins, along with linesmen Tony Molina and Bruce Vida Jr., officiated the NCAA Championship Game at Ford Field in Detroit. It was Shegos’ sixth title game as an official. In 2011, eight CCHA officials were selected to work the NCAA National Tournament. Under the direction of Piotrowski, who also serves as the Secretary-Rules Editor of the Rules Committee, the CCHA has continued to embrace the latest in officiating technology. Through a partnership with XOS Technologies, the officiating staff has a number of web-based technology tools at its disposal to share video of on-ice situations and promote consistency through continued education. Piotrowski has also raised the expectations of the CCHA’s Officiating Program by emphasizing the importance of flexibility, strength and conditioning of its officials. He has created and maintained an on-ice mentoring program to assist in the development of less experienced officials as well.

All-Time: 454-518-93

IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL – Head coach Dallas Ferguson plans on staying in Fairbanks for the long haul as he signed a contract extension through the end of the 2015-16 season.

SOLID D – With five returning defensemen and two-year veteran netminder Scott Greenham between the pipes for one more season, Alaska’s defensive core is looking as solid as ever. In 2010-11 Alaska had the fourth-best team defense among CCHA teams and ninth best among all Division I teams (2.39 goals per game).

2011-12 SCHEDULE

HOME IMPROVEMENT – The Nanooks home venue is set to receive some topnotch upgrades in the near future as the Alaska legislature approved $3.5 million for the Carlson Center Renovation Phase II. The project includes construction of new home and visiting locker rooms, a media room, training room, lounge, spin room, community locker rooms, equipment rooms and a multi-purpose room for other event and facility needs. WINNING WAYS – Since head coach Dallas Ferguson took the reigns at Alaska, the Nanooks have won two Alaska Airline’s Governor’s Cups titles, four tournament championship crowns, and three CCHA home playoff series. His teams are averaging 17 wins a season, more than any of his seven predecessors. LOADED WEAPON – Despite losing two of its top three scorers from 2010-11, Alaska returns 10 forwards and almost 75 percent of its scoring offense from a year ago.

WHOLLY, NOT HOLEY, GOALIE – Senior goalie Scott Greenham will suit up as Alaska’s starting goalie for the third straight year. Since succeeding 2009 CCHA Player of the Year and NHL goalie Chad Johnson, Greenham has been the Nanooks go-toguy, making 77 consecutive starts over the last two seasons. SEVEN SENIORS – Alaska rosters 14 upperclassmen for the second consecutive year, including seven seniors. The group represents the most for head coach Dallas Ferguson and the program’s second largest senior class of the past decade. The largest was during the 2003-2004 season, when then head coach Guy Gadowsky’s (Penn State) squad rostered nine seniors.

Dallas Ferguson led Alaska to its first-ever first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 2009-10.

Dallas Ferguson enters his fourth season as head coach of the Alaska Hockey program. He was named the eighth head coach of his alma mater on May 15, 2008, following four years of service as an assistant coach for the Blue and Gold. A former Nanook defenseman and team captain, Ferguson guided the program to new heights in his first three seasons at the helm. After leading the team to a fourth place finish in the CCHA and capturing the league’s Coach of the

Year award in 2008-09, he took the Nanooks to the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history in 2009-10. The Wainwright, Alberta native has coached fifteen Nanooks who have gone on to professional hockey careers, including 2010 Stanley Cup Champion and defenseman Jordan Hendry of the Chicago Blackhawks, 2009 first team AllAmerican and CCHA Player of the Year Chad Johnson (New York Rangers) and 2008 CCHA Offensive Defenseman of the year and first team All-American Tyler Eckford (New Jersey Devils). Prior to his tenure at Alaska, Ferguson spent two years as the assistant coach for the Fairbanks Ice Dogs of the North American Hockey League. As an athlete, Ferguson enjoyed a four-year professional hockey career following his collegiate playing days in Fairbanks. He was a four-year letterwinner for the Nanooks (1992-96) and ranks 21st on Alaska’s career scoring list. He finished his career with 104 points (17g, 87a) and was a three-time recipient of the Shawn Chambers Top Defenseman Award. A proven leader, Ferguson was an alternate captain as a junior and voted the team captain as a senior. Off the ice, Ferguson earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in management and organization from UAF. Following his college career, he played four years professionally. He split his rookie pro year with the Alaska Gold Kings of the West Coast

Memorable Moments

Hockey League and the Richmond Renegades of the East Coast Hockey League. Ferguson played in 15 games for the Gold Kings, notching a goal and 13 assists, and finished the 1996-97 season with the Renegades, compiling a goal and two assists in 18 games. Ferguson spent the next three seasons with the Anchorage Aces (formerly the Gold Kings) of the WCHL. In his time with the Aces, Ferguson amassed 55 points in 144 games, as well as six points in 18 playoff games. Ferguson and his wife Tara live in Fairbanks with their daughters, Peyton and Kendall.

MEMORABLE GAMES AT THE CARLSON CENTER NOVEMBER 28, 1992 – ALASKA VS. MAINE

Alaska led No.1-ranked Maine (with Hobey Baker winner Paul Kariya) 4-2 half way through the contest. The Nanooks were ultimately upset 6-4 by the Great Alaska Face-off champions, who also were crowned that year’s NCAA Champions and only lost one game all year. Hockey alumnus and former assistant coach Wade Klippenstein (a senior during the 1992-93 season) said it was the loudest he had ever heard the Carlson Center get. MAINE 6 - UA 4

OCTOBER 11, 2003 – ALASKA VS. ALASKA-ANCHORAGE AIRLINES GOVERNOR’S CUP GAME 2 The Nanooks trailed the UAA Seawolves by a goal with under a minute left in the second game of the Governor’s Cup series. After a timeout with 35 seconds left on the clock, the Nanooks pulled goalie Keith Bartusch in favor of an extra forward, allowing Ryan Campbell to even the count just seven seconds later (19:32). The surge of energy and offense continued as Cory Rask netted the game-winning goal at 19:42 and then with less than one second to play Ryan Lang sealed the deal with an empty-netter for a 5-3 win.

ROSTER TRANSITION - Ten freshmen join the Falcons’ roster for the 2011-12 campaign. Goaltender Wyatt Galley, son of former Falcon great Garry, is the most recognizable name to fans joining the squad but the focus of this freshman class has been size. Of the nine freshman skaters, seven are at least six-feet tall and four weigh 200 pounds or more. The D-core was revamped with four defenseman joining the team, adding to five forwards and one goaltender. This marks the first full recruiting class for second-year head coach Chris Bergeron and his staff.

one option between the pipes. In 25 starts and 27 appearances, Hammond started slow but turned the season around with two shutouts, six wins, two shootout victories, a 2.67 GAA mark and a .915 save percentage in a league featuring fantastic goaltending. He will take redshirt freshman Scott Zacharias and true freshman Wyatt Galley under his wing as he begins his third year of work for the Brown and Orange.

A SUMMER TO REFLECT - 2011-12 is the second season for head coach Chris Bergeron and his staff following a year marred with ups and downs. The Falcons finished 11th in the CCHA but became the first last-placed team in conference history to record a first-round playoff series win by defeating Northern Michigan two out of three games in Marquette. Last summer, players could not use the BGSU Ice Arena to train and work out in due to renovations. This season, many of the returning players took advantage of open ice and an emphasis of remaining together to bond and become stronger physically. HAMMOND IS BACK FOR MORE - After a stellar sophomore season, goaltender Andrew Hammond will return as the Falcons’ number-

A NEW FEATURE FACE(S) - Sophomore forwards Cam Wojtala and Brett Mohler will be two returners that the Falcon will lean on heavily for offensive power and leadership. Mohler is the team’s lead returning point scorer (7-10-17) with Wojtala not far behind with 16 points (5-11-16). The two combined to win the team’s Rookie of the Year Award and showed flashes of brilliance with speed and puck control being their main strengths. The duo should compete for spots on the top lines once again. SILENT BUT DEADLY - Though quiet in nature, junior Marc Rodriguez had a phenomenal first half that made an impression on the Falcon faithful. In the first half of the season, he was the team’s second-leading point getter (14) and leading goal scorer (6). Following the new year he was slowed by a concussion but finished the season with 15 points, fifth on the team and third among returners.

CENTRAL COLLEGIATE HOCKEY ASSOCIATION | 2011-12 MEDIA GUIDE


In just one year the effects of Chris Bergeron’s presence have been felt across Falcon Hockey and the Bowling Green community. He became the Falcons’seventh head coach in program history on April 12, 2010 after Bowling Green State University Athletic Director Greg Christopher announced that Bergeron took over the reins of BGSU Falcon hockey. The message Bergeron provided his team and the community has been that to be truly successful you must do well in three areas: on the ice, in the community and most importantly in the classroom. The 2010-11 team answered the call in all three phases by participating in multiple community service projects, improving the team’s overall grade-point average and doubling the previous season’s win total in just his first year at the helm. The team capped off the season in

dramatic fashion by defeating Northern Michigan in the first round of the CCHA playoffs. The Falcons saw most of their improvement in Bergeron’s first season on the defensive side of the puck. Bowling Green lowered its goals-allowed per game by 0.8 and improved its penalty-kill percentage by 6.7 percent from 2009-10 to 201011. Bergeron’s influence also helped drop the Falcons’ penalty totals considerably. Bergeron helped rebuild the Miami RedHawks program and sustained success from 2000-2010. During Bergeron’s time in Oxford, Ohio, his teams had a cumulative record of 226-139-37 overall and a conference record of 161-83-28. Bergeron helped guide the RedHawks to six NCAA Tournament appearances, consecutive Frozen Four showings in 2008-09 and 2009-10, two first places finishes in the CCHA and six seasons with 20 or more overall wins. In 2009-10, the RedHawks finished 29-8-7 (212-5-2) and mounted a 23-game unbeaten streak in conference play. Under his guidance, Bergeron saw nine Miami forwards earn All-CCHA honors including three members two seasons ago. He also saw goaltender Cody Reichard named to the All-America West Second Team while also obtaining CCHA Player of the Year honors. In six of his last seven years at Miami, Bergeron saw at least one student-athlete named to the All-American team. Since 2001 and prior to the 2009-10 season, 19 RedHawks have been drafted by a NHL team and 34 have played professionally.

Memorable Moments

Bergeron played at Miami from 1989-93 and was a two-year team captain, leading the team to its first CCHA Championship in program history as a senior. He then spent seven years playing professionally before returning to Miami as an assistant coach. During that time, he played with the Adirondack Red Wings (AHL), the Birmingham Bulls (ECHL), the Toledo Storm (ECHL), the Cincinnati Cyclones (IHL) and the Columbus Cottonmouths (CHL), being named a league all-star four times. Bergeron graduated from Miami in 1993, earning a bachelor’s degree in education. He and his wife, Janis, now reside in Bowling Green with their two sons, Logan, 10, and Connor, seven.

March 24, 1984 – In the longest NCAA title game ever played, the Falcons land their only national championship with a 5-4 quadruple overtime decision over Minnesota-Duluth as winger Gino Cavallini converts a pass from Dan Kane at the 97:11 mark of the contest. John Samanski sent the game into OT by capitalizing on an opportunistic carom off the boards with only 1:47 to play in regulation. Falcon freshman goalie Gary Kruzich earns tournament MVP honors with 32 saves while UMD’s Rick Kosti makes a tourney-record 55 stops.

March 31, 1995 – Brian Holzinger is named the 15th recipient of the Hobey Baker Memorial Award given annually to college hockey’s top player. The official announcement is made in Providence, R.I., at the Frozen Four.

November 6, 2010 – The hockey program and the University hosted NHL greats Rob Blake and announcer Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick to support the “Bring Back the Glory” campaign. After defeating nationally-ranked Notre Dame the night before, the Falcons dropped a 6-3 decision to the Irish as Blake sat amongst the fans and signed autographs during the first intermission while Emrick dropped the ceremonial first puck and performed color commentary with BGSU broadcaster Everett Fitzhugh.

DIRECTIONS TO BGSU

BGSU ICE ARENA

From the north or south via I-75: Use exit 181 and head west (Wooster St) after leaving the off ramp. Turn right onto Mercer Rd. Stay in the right lane. To access the parking area, turn right at Stadium Drive, the first street past the arena. The lot will be immediately on your right. If traveling from the east or west via the Ohio Turnpike, use exit 4A and head south on I-75. Then follow above.

It’s safe to say from its grand opening in February 1967, to its around-the-clock operation today, no one building in Bowling Green has been responsible for uniting the University and community more than the Bowling Green State University Ice Arena. Large, noisy crowds have been a tradition at the BGSU Ice Arena, a $1.8 million facility constructed between 1965-67. The current building capacity stands at 5,000, making the arena the 19th-largest among collegiate teams in the four major conferences and the fifth-largest in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. Before last season the BGSU hockey coaching staff moved into new offices as part of the $750,000 renovation project that also included a new training room, weight room and alumni lounge. This summer the arena added new office space, a skate rental area and concession stand.

FERRIS STATE BULLDOGS

Joined CCHA: 1979-80

CCHA Record: 359-471-100

SIMPLY THE BEST - For the second season in a row, Ferris State boasted the nation’s top penalty-kill unit as the Bulldogs operated at a school-record 88.6 percent efficiency. The Bulldogs went 156-for-176 with a man down a season ago and surpassed their 2009-10 national-best 88.4 penalty kill percentage. Ferris State also placed fifth among the national leaders in both scoring defense (2.21 gpg.) and combined special teams efficiency (54.8 percent).

in the 1999-00 campaign when defensemen Jim Dube and Gary Ricciardi were bestowed with the honor. In nine of the last 12 seasons, a defenseman has served as the Bulldogs’ team captain.

HOMEGROWN - Approximately 55 percent of Ferris State’s roster since the 2005-06 season has been comprised of in-state student-athletes. One hundred skaters out of 182 total players have hailed from the state of Michigan. The 2011-12 Bulldog roster features 13 in-state players. DOUBLING UP – Junior forward Travis Ouellette doubled his points total last season from the 2009-10 campaign with a teamleading 21 points in 36 contests. Ouellette established career single-season highs in points (21), goals (10), assists (11), power-play goals (5) and blocked shots (23). ‘C’ For D – Senior defensemen Tommy Hill and Chad Billins will serve as Bulldog co-captains for the 2011-12 season. The two represent the 40th and 41st skaters in the program’s history to wear the captain’s ‘C’ on their jersey. The last time Ferris State had co-captains was

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY – The Bulldogs welcome back their top point producer in Travis Ouellette (10-11-21) for the good, but lost four of their top seven scoring leaders to graduation, including SecondTeam All-American and All-CCHA First-Team selection Zach Redmond (7-13-20) for the bad. The ugly is for the first time in the last four seasons Ferris State will be without AllAmerica First-Team goaltender Pat Nagle, who graduated. Nagle concluded his four-year (2007-11) career as the program’s second winningest netminder and is a co-record holder for best save percentage (.916). TAYLOR MADE – Goaltender Taylor Nelson enters his senior season ranking third among FSU’s all-time leaders in both save percentage (.911) and goals-against average (2.55) in 39 career outings. Nelson posted an 0-2-0 record with a 3.10 goals-against average and an .870 saves percentage in four appearances last year. As a sophomore, Nelson went 9-3-3 in net while producing a 2.49 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage, both career singleseason bests.

Bulldogs’head coach Bob Daniels enters his 20th season behind the bench at Ferris State.

The all-time winningest coach in Ferris State’s history, Bob Daniels enters his 20th season behind the Bulldog bench in the 2011-12 season. A season ago, Daniels directed Ferris State to an 18-win campaign and a fifth-place showing in the CCHA as the Bulldogs have placed fifth or higher three times in the last four seasons. In 2009-10, Daniels guided the nationally-ranked Bulldogs to a third-place CCHA finish. The 2002-03 CCHA Coach of the Year Award recipient and a two-time (2007-08 and 2009-10) award finalist, Daniels attained another milestone in his distinguished coaching career by recording his 300th career win following a 4-1 decision at Bowling Green midway through the 2010-11 season. Daniels guided the 2002-03 Bulldogs to the program’s best

season ever in NCAA Division I with 31 victories, earning the distinction of being the nation’s first team to reach the 30-win plateau. In the process, FSU claimed its first CCHA title, advanced to the Super Six Tournament and made its NCAA Tournament debut. The American Hockey Coaches Association and Inside College Hockey.com both named Daniels Coach of the Year that season. At Ferris State Daniels has coached eight AllAmericans. The most notable is 2002-03 Hobey Baker Award finalist and CCHA Player of the Year Chris Kunitz, a member of two NHL Stanley Cup Champion teams. Daniels, the longest tenured coach in the program’s history, recorded his 100th career coaching victory in the 1998-99 regular-season game at Michigan State. His school-record setting 120th win occurred March 4, 2000, when the Bulldogs notched a 7-0 regular-season finale victory at Western Michigan. Ferris State appointed Daniels as head coach before the start of the 1992-93 season. In his first year, the Bulldogs turned in one of the most successful seasons in the program’s history with 21 wins and a CCHA Tournament Semifinal appearance. At the time, the 1992-93 season victory total signified only the fourth time in which a Ferris team had won 20 games in a season and the second time in which a rookie coach won more than 16 games behind the Bulldogs’ bench. Daniels first joined the Ferris State program in 1989-90 as an assistant to John Perpich and then served under Bob Mancini from 1990-92. He broke

Memorable Moments

into the CCHA as an assistant at the University of Illinois-Chicago (1987-89) and helped the Flames secure a third-place CCHA finish in 1988-89. Daniels received his bachelor of arts in accounting from Michigan State in 1982 and earned a master’s degree in sports organization from Miami (Ohio) University. Daniels also was as a graduate assistant coach at Miami in the 1986-87 season. A native of Livonia, Mich., Daniels and his wife, Leslie, are the parents of two daughters – Jenna and Sara, and a son – Pete. Jenna is a member of the Ferris State cross country and track teams.

Ewigleben Ice Arena is located on FSU’s Sports Drive adjacent to West Knollview Drive. From U.S. 131 expressway, take the Perry Street exit (139) east and upon reaching State Street, turn right and go south. The Ewigleben Ice Arena is enclosed within the Sports Complex, located on the west side of South State Street on the hill.

The Ewigleben Ice Arena (pronounced A-VAHglave-in) serves as the home for the Ferris State men’s ice hockey team and begins its 37th year of operation in the 2011-12 season. The facility is named in honor of former FSU President Dr. Robert L. Ewigleben, who helped establish hockey at FSU and coordinated its progression to the NCAA Division I level during his tenure (1971-84). The arena, with an official seating capacity of 2,493, is attached to the 39,300 square foot Ewigleben Sports Complex and the Student Convocation Center. The facility features an enlarged 1,620-square foot press box which includes two luxury boxes.

LIMITING OPPONENTS – The Lakers kept opposing power plays to a minimum by averaging only 10.8 penalty minutes per game, the lowest average in the league. LSSU returns six defensemen in 2011-12, including top scoring junior Zach Trotman, and senior Kyle Haines, who was a twotime CCHA Defensive Player of theWeek last season. PICKING UP WHERE HE LEFT OFF – Kevin Kapalka filled in admirably for injured senior goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson in 2010-11. Kapalka was a unanimous pick to the CCHA All-

ALUMNI HOLDING A CUP – Two former Lakers have hoisted championship cups during the past five seasons. Defenseman Derek A. Smith, who played at LSSU from 2004-07, helped the Binghamton Senators win the 2011 Calder Cup (AHL). Kory Scoran, a Laker defenseman from 2002-06, was a part of Idaho’s run to the 2007 Kelly Cup (ECHL). The last Laker to hoist the Stanley Cup (NHL) was Doug Weight with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. Weight, a Laker from 1989-91, announced his retirement in May. He received the NHL’s Humanitarian Award in 2011. MAKING THE GRADE – LSSU has drastically improved its team grade-point average since posting a 2.59 in 2006-07. The Lakers had team GPAs of 3.04 in 2007-08, 2.95 in 2008-09, 3.08 in 2009-10 and 3.0 in 2010-11. The team’s topreturning student-athletes are sophomores Andrew Perrault (3.82), Nick Shkreli (3.70) and Dan Radke (3.66), and senior Kyle Pobur (3.66).

Jim Roque is in his seventh season behind the bench for the Lakers.

Jim Roque stormed onto the head coaching scene in 2005-06 by leading LSSU to its first winning season in six years and to its first home-ice berth in the CCHA Playoffs since 1999-00. During his second season, the Lakers finished 21-19-3 and reached the CCHA semifinals at Joe Louis Arena for the first time since 1995-96. The Lakers are 85-108-39 during Roque’s six-year tenure, including 13-17-9 in 2010-11 while competing with 10 rookies. Led by CCHA All-Rookie Team goaltender Kevin Kapalka and senior forwards Rick Schofield and Will Acton, last year’s team beat Ohio State 4-0 and 3-2 to sweep a CCHA Playoff home series for the first time since 1996. The 2009-10 team had its share of wire-to-wire thrillers and finished 8-6 in one-goal games, making a vast improvement

from the 1-12 record in 2008-09. Roque became the ninth coach in the 42-year history of Laker hockey when he replaced Frank Anzalone in June of 2005. He is the second former Laker player to take the helm of the LSSU program. Roque’s most-recent of three LSSU assistant coaching stints ran from 2001-05. Previously, he was an assistant coach for the Lakers from 1988-91 and also in 1994-95. After six seasons as an assistant at Clarkson University, he returned to LSSU again in 2001. Roque also coached in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League from 1991-93. After graduating from LSSU in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in management, the Killarney, Ont., native started his coaching career as an assistant under Anzalone and stayed on to work with former coach Jeff Jackson. This is his 11th overall season as a coach at LSSU. Roque played for the Lakers from 1983-87 and totaled 56 goals and 144 career points, which ranks 19th on the Lakers’ career points list. Roque was a part of the first recruited class brought in by Anzalone and was also a member of the first Laker squad to advance to the NCAA Tournament in 1985. The only other former Laker who went on to become the program’s head coach was Rick Comley, who recently retired as head coach of the Michigan State Spartans. He coached at LSSU from 1973-76. Roque was on the LSSU coaching staff when it won the 1988 NCAA Championship, and he recruited the majority of the 1992 title team. He

Memorable Moments

has played a role in all five NCAA Tournament appearances and was part of two CCHA playoff titles and two regular-season titles. At Clarkson, he coached two Hobey Baker finalists and four National Hockey League players (Todd White, Erik Cole, Chris Clark and Willie Mitchell). He was also a part of three Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) regular-season titles, four NCAA Tournament berths and one playoff championship. He and his wife, Julia, have two children - Emma (16) and Abby (14).

TAFFY ABEL ARENA Clarence “Taffy” Abel Arena was the dream of former athletic director/coach Jeff Jackson. An ambitious undertaking, the “Gem of the North” project renovated the former James Norris Arena into a facility capable of holding events ranging from hockey to concerts, conventions and convocations. The reconstructed arena re-opened on Oct. 28, 1995. A major contribution from the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians was the key component in the redesign of the home of Laker Hockey. The arena is named in honor of the late Sault Ste. Marie hockey legend, Clarence “Taffy” Abel, a Native American and the first player inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame. Abel retired from the National Hockey League with two Stanley Cup rings and the title of “Michigan Mountain.” Assistance from the Ilitch family, owners of the Detroit Red Wings, helped to complete the project. Abel Arena includes a full-bowl layout with 4,000 chair seats, a renovated Laker Hockey locker room and weight room, five locker rooms for youth teams, concession facilities, convenient restrooms, 16 sky boxes, classroom and office space, a press box and a pro shop.

Tom Davies and Bob Webb also scored goals, while Don Muio totaled 41 saves. Flesch, who was the Lakers’ first NHL draft pick, won the ICHA scoring title in 1972-73. LSSU 6 - BSU 2

DECEMBER 8, 1979 - MICHIGAN TECH VS. LAKE SUPERIOR LAKERS Bryan Alexander scored two goals, and Andy Clark, Steve Mulholland and Bob Ciotti scored one each as the Lakers ended an eight-game losing skid against the Huskies.

MIAMI REDHWKS

CCHA Record: 384-420-82

All-Time: 590-583-100

Andy Miele in 2010-11. Miele became the first RedHawk to win the Hobey Baker Award and he was the second straight RedHawk to claim CCHA Player of the Year honors and just the fourth ever after Cody Reichard did so in 2010 as a sophomore.

2011-12 SCHEDULE

Joined CCHA:1981-82 BIG LOSS - Miami looks to replace the second-winningest class in school history (108 wins), as last year’s senior class included Hobey Baker winner Andy Miele and fellow All-American Carter Camper. The five-man class accounted for 46 percent of Miami’s scoring in 2010-11, including three of its top four scorers, and 47 percent of the team’s goals. The RedHawks bring on board seven freshmen (six forwards) to help fill the void, including Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick Jimmy Mullin, USHL Player of the Year Blake Coleman and highly touted Tyler Biggs. PLAYOFF CHAMPS - Miami captured its first Mason Cup in school history last year and will look to defend its CCHA Tournament Championship in 2011-12. The RedHawks finished third in the CCHA during the regular season, marking the sixth-straight year Miami has finished in the top three in the standings, something no other team in the CCHA has done over that stretch. During that time, the ‘Hawks have won the regularseason title twice, finished runner-up once and placed third three times. ALL-AMERICAN STREAK - Miami has had at least one All-American in each of the last eight years, including Carter Camper and

TOP SCORER BACK - Junior forward Reilly Smith is the leading returning goal-scorer in the nation entering 2011-12 after scoring 28 goals as a sophomore, which tied for fourth nationally. Smith is also second among returning point-scorers after totaling 54 a year ago, as only Minnesota-Duluth’s Jack Connolly, who tallied 59 points as junior in 201011, had more points than Smith among returning players. Smith tied for seventh in the country last year in points. RECORD BREAKER - Senior goalie Cody Reichard, who has split time as Miami’s starter in each of his first three years, will likely split time again with classmate Connor Knapp. Reichard has 44 wins in his career, and needs 11 more to tie for second in Miami history and 17 victories to become Miami’s all-time winningest goalie. He also has 10 career shutouts, just two behind David Burleigh for Miami’s career record.

Enrico Blasi is a four-time CCHA Coach of the Year honoree.

Entering his 13th season at the helm of Miami’s hockey team, head coach Enrico Blasi has helped the program achieve what many thought could never be done in Southwest Ohio. Blasi has elevated the RedHawks into a nationally-prominent program. The crowning achievements came in the past three years when Miami made its first-ever NCAA Championship Game appearance in 2009, followed by its secondever trip to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2010 and won its first CCHA Tournament in 2011. A 1994 graduate of Miami, Blasi took over the reins at his alma mater in 1999 as the youngest head coach in Division I hockey. Blasi has received several honors and awards as Miami’s coach, including — the 2010 College Hockey News and CollegeHockey247.com National Coach of the Year honors, the 2006 Spencer Penrose Award for National Coach of the Year, and four Central Collegiate Hockey Association Coach of the Year Awards.

Under Blasi, Miami has won two regular-season CCHA Championships, made seven trips to the NCAA Tournament, including six straight, and two NCAA Frozen Four appearances. Over the last six seasons (since 2005-06) Blasi has led the RedHawks to the best winning percentage among all Division I hockey teams, compiling a mark of 158-62-27 (.694). The RedHawks have won at least 20 games each season during that stretch, one of just four teams nationally to do so. Miami has had seven Hobey Baker Award finalists in the last six years, including the ‘Hawks first winner — Andy Miele in 2011. Under Blasi, a total of 10 RedHawks have earned All-America status and three were named CCHA Player of the Year. During the 2010-11 season, the RedHawks skated to a 23-10-6 overall record and finished third in the CCHA with a 16-7-5 league mark. Miami went on to win the conference tournament for the first time in program history, dominating the competition by a combined score of 19-6 in four games, including a 5-2 win over Western Michigan in the championship. The RedHawks earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament last season but lost in the first round to New Hampshire. Miele led the NCAA in the regular season with 71 points. The `10-11 campaign pushed Blasi’s record as head coach to 262-169-46 (.597) overall and 188-111-37 (.615) in CCHA games while he picked up his 250th career win Dec. 29, 2010 against Maine. In 2009-10, Miami finished the regular season ranked No. 1 nationally, after being ranked the nation’s top team for 17 of the 23 weeks. Blasi’s RedHawks ran away with the school’s third CCHA regular-season championship, winning the title by over 20 points. Miami earned the overall top

seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history and captured the NCAA Midwest Regional title to earn the school’s second straight Frozen Four berth. In 2008-09 the RedHawks earned their fourthstraight NCAA Tournament berth as a No. 4 seed en route to winning the West Regional Championship and making their first Frozen Four appearance. Miami eventually fell to Boston University in overtime of the National Championship. As a player at Miami from 1990-1994, Blasi was a vital cog in the Red and White’s run to their first CCHA title in 1992-93 and first NCAA Tournament appearance that same season. His 123 career points are still tied for 21st on Miami’s all-time points list. A native of Weston, Ontario, Blasi earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Miami. He resides in Oxford with his family.

Memorable Moments October 23, 1981 – The CCHA era begins for Miami hockey with the Red and White defeating Western Michigan 2-0 in Kalamazoo, Mich., with Dan Kodatsky earning the shutout. Miami went on to collect nine league wins in its inaugural season of CCHA play.

March 6, 1993 – Needing just one point to clinch its first CCHA regular-season title, Miami rallies from two goals down and ties Lake Superior State, 6-6, to capture the CCHA crown. Brian Savage nets the game-tying goal at 17:47 in the third period.

March 19, 2011 – Miami scores three third-period goals to break a 2-2 tie in the CCHA Tournament Championship game at Joe Louis Arena en route to a 5-2 victory over No. 12 Western Michigan, giving the RedHawks their first Mason Cup in program history.

From north and I-70: Take Hwy. 127 south to Hwy. 73 west. Stay on 73 west until it ends at Hwy. 27 (Patterson Avenue). Turn left and then take an immediate right on Spring St. Turn left on Oak St. (second left) and the arena will be on your right.

From the building’s conception in early 2002, to its completion in July 2006, Miami University made it a point to embrace the history of its hockey and skating programs in the creation of what is one of the finest arenas in all of college athletics. In doing so, four people with strong ties to Miami came to the forefront in the effort to move the RedHawks from the cramped but cozy confines of the 2,200-seat Goggin Ice Arena to the new 170,000 square-foot Ice Center. The Ice Center has two NHL-size (200’ x 85’) sheets, including a 3,200-seat arena, which is called Steve Cady Arena, and includes 2,800 reserved lower-bowl seats, 102 club seats, four opera boxes and six private suites. When standing room is included, Cady Arena has a capacity of nearly 4,000. The second sheet of ice, with seating for 250, is mainly used by Miami’s synchronized skating team, but also sees extensive use through youth hockey, intramural activities and other community-related events. Over 500 intramural teams consisting of over 8,000 participants also utilize the Ice Center, in addition to the over 1,000 students who take courses through the school’s Physical and Health Sciences program. The facility also welcomes youth hockey teams from around the country for various tournaments, while serving as the site of Miami’s summer hockey school.

From the south and I-275 : Take Hwy. 27 north to Oxford. Stay on 27 north to Oxford. 27 becomes Patterson Avenue and turn left on Chestnut St. Take second right onto Oak St. Arena on your left.

MICHIGAN WOLVERINES

Joined CCHA: 1981-82

CCHA Record: 533-289-66

HOME SWEET HOME – The Wolverines enter the 2011-12 season having won 14 straight home games, including “The Big Chill at the Big House.” U-M’s record for consecutive home wins is 17, which has been achieved twice – Jan. 1993-Jan. 1994 and March 1961-March 1962.

POINTS ON THE BACKEND – U-M defensemen racked up 27 goals last season, 15 of which were scored by junior Lee Moffie (8) and sophomore Jon Merrill (7). An All-CCHA second team honoree as a rookie in 201011, Merrill is U-M’s top returning point-getter (7-18-25). Moffie, a San Jose Sharks prospect, potted five of his eight tallies on the power play while playing in just 32 games.

ALL-TIME LEADER – Head coach Red Berenson passed Ron Mason as the CCHA career wins leader late in the 2010-11 campaign. All of Berenson’s 497 conference victories have come while leading the Maize and Blue. His .663 career CCHA winning percentage is second only to Notre Dame’s Jeff Jackson (.683). Overall, Berenson has 728 career wins, which ranks sixth all-time. He is 17 wins away from taking over fifth place from Bob Peters. TOP RETURNER – Senior forward David Wohlberg assumes the title of top active scorer for the Wolverines. The 2008-09 CCHA Rookie of the Year has 40 goals and 38 assists for 78 points in 121 career games. His 15 goals in 2010-11 tied a career high and were second on the team behind Carl Hagelin. Wohlberg, a New Jersey Devil prospect, missed the final seven games of last season due to injury.

GETTING BETTER WITH AGE - Yost Ice Arena turns 88 in 2011, yet it will benefit from a pair of multi-million dollar upgrades over the next two seasons. Ready for use this season is the building’s first HD video board, which is center hung and features four main displays, four corner displays and a video ring. In summer 2012, $14 million will be invested in upgrading the bleacher seating, concourse and press box, adding premium seating and replacing the exterior windows. HUNWICK RETURNS – Fifth-year senior Shawn Hunwick set the school record for single-season save percentage at .925 in 2010-11. The former walk-on and reigning CCHA Goaltender of the Year enters his final season in the Maize and Blue as the career record holder for goals against average (2.12) and save percentage (.924).

Red Berenson has led Michigan to 21 straight trips to the NCAA Tournament.

Gordon “Red” Berenson is in his 28th season as head coach at the University of Michigan. The Wolverines have enjoyed 24 consecutive winning seasons under his direction. U-M has received 21 straight NCAA Tournament bids - a national record. Berenson has advanced to 11 Frozen Fours, winning two national championships (1996, 1998) and reaching the national title game one other time (2011). Berenson has a career record of 728-339-73 (.671). He coached in his 1,000th collegiate game in 2007-08 and moved into sixth place on college hockey’s career coaching wins list in 2009-10. He is 17 wins away from passing Bob Peters (North Dakota, Bemidji State) for fifth place.

The 2007-08 season was among Berenson’s best as determined by his peers, who voted him CCHA Coach of the Year and National Coach of the Year. The Wolverines racked up a 33-6-4 record, won the CCHA regular season and tournament championships, earned their first Great Lakes Invitational title since 1996 and reached the NCAA Frozen Four. Michigan has dominated the CCHA under Berenson, finishing first or second 19 times over a 21-year span from 1991-2011. During that time, the Maize and Blue collected 11 regular-season titles and nine CCHA Tournament crowns. Two Wolverines have won the Hobey Baker Memorial Award as a result of Berenson’s tutelage: Brendan Morrison in 1997 and Kevin Porter in 2008. Additionally, 36 players have earned All-America recognition. Berenson is the fourth former Michigan captain to coach the Wolverines, accepting the position in May 1984. A three-year letterwinner, Berenson is one of the top players in U-M history, earning All-America and MVP honors in his junior and senior seasons (1961 and 1962). Berenson became the first collegian to step directly into the NHL when he played in nine games for Montreal at the end of the 1961-62 season. Over 17 seasons he accumulated 261 goals and 397 assists for 658 points in 987 games - the most by any Michigan alumnus in the NHL. Following his retirement as a player in 1978,

Memorable Moments

Berenson remained in St. Louis as a member of the Blues’ coaching staff and was named the 1981 NHL Coach of the Year. For his outstanding service to hockey in the United States, the NHL and USA Hockey honored Berenson and four others with the Lester Patrick Award in the fall of 2006. Berenson and his wife, Joy, reside in Ann Arbor and are the parents of two daughters, Kelly and Sandy, and two sons, Gordie and Rusty.

DIRECTIONS TO U-M

YOST ICE ARENA

From M-14: Take Main St. exit (3) toward Downtown/Ann Arbor. Continue on Main St. through downtown. Make left turn onto Packard St. Turn right onto State St. Yost Ice Arena is on the right with parking lot entrance just before it.

Yost Ice Arena was originally built in 1923 as a field house. The structure was named after Michigan’s legendary football coach and athletic director, Fielding H. Yost. The Michigan ice hockey program began playing in the converted arena to start the 1973-74 campaign. Yost Ice Arena is one of the most unique arenas in college hockey; it retains the charm of an old barn, but also offers the amenities of a modern arena. The facility underwent a $1.4-million renovation during the summer of 2001, creating a new balcony across from the press box that provided nearly 300 new seats. The second floor varsity area houses a well-appointed locker room and training area used exclusively by the Michigan ice hockey team. In the summer of 2006 an opponents’ locker room and entryway were created at the opposite end of the rink from where U-M steps onto the ice.

From I-94: Take the State Street exit (177) toward Ann Arbor. After passing under the train bridge, Yost Ice Arena is on the left. From US-23 South: Take M-14 West at US23/M-14 split near northern edge of Ann Arbor. Follow directions for M-14 above.

Joined CCHA: 1981-82

CCHA Record: 553-248-89

All-Time: 1204-887-121

NEW LEADER - Former Spartan skater (1982-85) and assistant coach Tom Anastos takes the reins of the Michigan State hockey program, becoming just the sixth coach in the modern history of the program. Anastos spent the previous 13 seasons as the commissioner of the CCHA.

NEW LOOK ON OFFENSE - The Spartans will need to replace the offensive output of the team’s departed leading scorer Derek Grant (8-25-33; opted to forego his final two seasons of eligibility and sign with the Senators) and fourth leading scorer and 2011 graduate Dustin Gazley (11-15-26).

2011-12 SCHEDULE

KRUG’S A CATALYST - Junior captain Torey Krug returns to the Spartan blue line after earning First Team All-CCHA and the league’s Best Offensive Defenseman honors as a sophomore. He anchors a defense which returns all six starters from a year ago, four of whom are seniors.

TEN FOR FOUR (YEARS) - MSU boasts 10 seniors this season. It’s MSU’s largest senior class since 1977-78, when there were also 10 fourth-year players.

ANOTHER MILLER ON THE ROSTER Former MSU and NHL player Kelly Miller is back at his alma mater as an assistant coach. Suiting up from 1981-85, he was the fourth member of his family (out of an eventual 10) to play hockey at Michigan State, and he remains one of the program’s all-time leading scorers. A ninth-round draft choice of the New York Rangers in 1982, his National Hockey League career spanned more than 1,000 games over 15 seasons, including three years with the New York Rangers and 12 with the Washington Capitals.

CHAMPIONSHIP REUNION - The 1986 National Championship team will be honored on the 25th anniversary of winning the title during the current team’s series with Ohio State on Oct. 20-21. It was Michigan State’s second of three all-time National Championships — 1966, 1986 and 2007. IMPRESSIVE TENURE - Michigan State assistant coach Tom Newton is the longesttenured assistant coach in the CCHA. Entering his 22nd season at Michigan State. Newton has worked for three head coaches and been a part of more than 450 victories.

Tom Anastos, a Michigan State alumnus who has excelled in the sport as a player, coach and administrator, was appointed as the head coach of the Spartans on March 23, 2011. Anastos, who previously served as the commissioner of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association for 13 seasons, is just the sixth Michigan State hockey coach in program history and the fourth in the modern era. Listed by The Hockey News each of the last five years as one of the “100 People of Power and Influence” (No. 46 in 2011), Anastos possesses a savvy blend of administrative, business and communication skills.

program in 2004, both played and coached at his alma mater before stepping into an administrative role. He was a four-year letterwinner at Michigan State (1981-85) for former coach Ron Mason and received his bachelor’s degree in construction management in 1987. He helped the Spartans to three Great Lakes Invitational titles, a regular-season CCHA Championship in 1985 and four consecutive CCHA Tournament titles. His Spartan teams made four NCAA Tournament appearances. As a senior, he earned second-team all-conference honors and was named to the all-tournament teams at the CCHA Tournament and Great Lakes Invitational. In his career, Anastos skated in 151 games, scored 70 goals for 153 points, and amassed 102 penalty minutes. He still holds the MSU record for short-handed goals in a season (7, 1983-84). A sixth-round pick of Montreal (124th overall) in 1981, Anastos played one season in the Canadiens organization, then joined the coaching staff at the University of MichiganDearborn where he served as head coach of that program from 1987-90, compiling a 68-37-7 record. In the fall of 1990, Anastos returned to his alma mater as an assistant coach under Ron Mason. Those two Spartans teams went a combined 43-28-13. In 1991-92, MSU advanced to the Frozen Four, but lost to

He also served as an NCAA representative on USA Hockey’s board of directors and has been a long-time member of its International Council and Junior Council which oversees the activities of the organization’s international programs and US junior hockey. Anastos, 48, lives in Farmington Hills, Mich., with his wife, Lisa. They have five children: daughters Lauren, Jenna, Alyssa, and Andrea, and son Drew.

March 19, 1966 – MSU completes one of the most unlikely postseason runs with a 6-1 win over Clarkson to claim its first national championship. Goaltender Gaye Cooley is named the tournament MVP and Amo Bessone is named Coach of the Year.

March 29, 1986 – MSU wins its second national championship, downing Harvard, 6-5, in Providence, R.I., on Mike Donnelly’s NCAA-record 59th goal of the season.

February 28, 1998 – Senior goaltender Chad Alban caps a memorable Senior Night with an empty-net goal, becoming just the fourth college goaltender to be credited with a goal and the first to shoot it into an empty net. Alban shot the puck from behind and to the right of his net and it went in with just 13 seconds remaining in the 6-3 win over Ferris State

March 15, 2001 – For the second straight year, a Spartan dominates the CCHA Awards Banquet. This time, it’s Ryan Miller who is named the league’s Player of the Year and Best Goaltender to go along with an All-CCHA FirstTeam selection. He would capture the Hobey Baker Memorial Award three weeks later. Shawn Horcoff won an unprecedented five individual CCHA awards in 2000 (Player of the Year, Best Defensive Forward, Scoring Champion, All-CCHA First Team and CCHA All-Academic). Oct. 6, 2001 – A world-record crowd of 74,554 watch as Michigan State and Michigan skate to a 3-3 overtime tie in an outdoor hockey game played at Spartan Stadium. The record crowd braved chilly temperatures, hovering just above freezing with wind gusts reaching nearly 30 mph. Spartans freshman forward Jim Slater scored the game-tying goal with 47 seconds to play in regulation time.

April 7, 2007 – An underdog Spartan team shocks Boston College, 3-1, to secure Michigan State’s third NCAA title in school history. Trailing 1-0 entering the final frame, Tim Kennedy tied the score midway through the period then set up Justin Abdelkader for the game-winner with just 18.9 seconds remaining in regulation.

DIRECTIONS TO MSU

MUNN ICE ARENA

From Route 496: Take Trowbridge Road exit (Exit 9). Follow Trowbridge to the first major intersection and turn left onto Harrison Road. At the third light, turn right on to Kalamazoo. Munn Ice Arena is after the Breslin Center on the right.

Built in 1974 strictly for hockey, the 6,470-seat facility is consistently being upgraded and renovated. The most recent update came in the summer of 2007, when the hockey offices were completely renovated. New photo murals help tell the story of Michigan State’s hockey successes, including the 2007 National Championship celebration, National Hockey League players, and Stanley Cup winners. Most recently, the athletic training room received new custom-built cold and hot tubs through the generosity of former Spartan players. When Munn Ice Arena, named in honor of late Spartan football coach and athletic director Biggie Munn, was built, it was a smashing attendance success. With the Spartans playing exciting and winning hockey, Munn Ice Arena drew 118,875 during its first year of operation in 1974-75 and 157,567 in 1975-76, a mark that still stands for total home attendance in one season. The building also is the site of the largest planting project on campus, enhancing the beauty of the facility. The surrounding area serves as a teaching and demonstration area for landscape architecture, botany and horticulture students.

Opened in August 1999, The Berry Events Center is in its 13th season as the home of the Wildcats. The nearly $11-millon facility provides individual seating for over 3,900 fans, in addition to 16 luxury boxes and standing room for 400 fans. The facility is named after John W. Berry, Jr., a 1971 graduate of Northern Michigan University who donated $2 million to the project. NMU is one of just two CCHA schools to play home games on a 200’ by 100’ Olympic-sized ice surface (Alaska-Fairbanks is the other). The Berry Events Center also features locker rooms and support areas for the NMU men’s and women’s basketball teams and the U.S. Speed skating teams along with four general-use locker rooms.

CCHA Record: 243-282-77

All-Time: 714-769-126

NEW HOME - Notre Dame will begin play in its new 5,000-seat Compton Family Ice Arena this fall. The playing surface in the main rink – The Charles “Lefty” Smith, Jr. Rink – is 200 X 90 and a second rink will feature an Olympic-sized 200 X 100 sheet. The Irish are expected to play their October home games in the Joyce Center before opening the Compton Family Ice Arena in November. The dedication game is set for Nov. 18 when the Irish play host to Boston College.

DANGEROUS DUO - With 12 freshmen on the Notre Dame roster in 2010-11, some games featured as many as 10 rookies in the lineup. The Irish had two of the best in left wing Anders Lee and center T.J. Tynan. Both players were selected to the CCHA all-rookie team and were second team all-CCHA selections. Tynan was the conference’s rookie of the year and took the Hockey Commissioner’s Association’s (HCA) national rookie of the year honors. Lee led the Irish with 24 goals, including seven game winners and finished the year with 44 points. Tynan was the top rookie scorer in the nation with 23 goals and 31 assists for 54 points, the seventh-best point total overall. His 54 points were the third most by a Notre Dame rookie, just five off the mark of 59 set by Dave Poulin ’82 and John Noble ’73.

2011-12 SCHEDULE

LOST TO THE CHAMPS - The Fighting Irish are coming off a 2010-11 season that saw them advance to the NCAA Frozen Four for the second time in the last four years. Notre Dame was 25-14-5 on the season and finished second in the CCHA regular season with an 18-7-3-2 record with a lineup that featured 12 freshmen. The Irish won the NCAA Northeast Regional as a third seed by defeating Merrimack, 4-3, in overtime and New Hampshire, 2-1, in the regional title game. At the Frozen Four, Notre Dame lost to eventual champion, Minnesota-Duluth, 4-3, in the semifinals. EUROPEAN FLAVOR - In 2011-12, the Irish will continue to feature a European presence on their roster. For the past four years – left wing Calle Ridderwall, a native of Stockholm, Sweden, graced the roster before graduating in May of 2011. His place will be taken by right wing Peter Schneider, a native of Vienna, Austria. The high-scoring forward played last season for the Indiana Ice of the USHL.

PILING UP THE WINS - Notre Dame head coach Jeff Jackson reached a pair of coaching milestones during the 2010-11 season as he collected his 300th all-time win and his 200th win in CCHA action. Now in his seventh season at Notre Dame, Jackson collected his 300th alltime win on Oct. 14 versus his former team – Lake Superior State and then on Oct. 30, won his 200th CCHA contest. In 12 seasons as a head coach, the 2011 CCHA Coach of the Year is 323-131-52 (.691) overall. In his 12 CCHA seasons, Jackson has a 215-87-47 (.683) in conference regular-season games. In six years at Notre Dame, Jackson is 141-79-27 (.624).

JJeff ff JJackson k notched t h d hi his 200th win i with Notre Dame and his 300th all-time collegiate win last season. The 2011-12 season marks the seventh year for head coach Jeff Jackson behind the Notre Dame bench. In his first six seasons guiding the Fighting Irish, Jackson has moved Notre Dame among the ranks of college hockey’s elite teams. Since the 2005-06 campaign, the Irish have won 141 games, claimed a pair of CCHA regular-season championships and won two CCHA tournament titles (2006-07, 2008-09). Notre Dame has made four NCAA appearances (2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2010-11) highlighted by a pair of Frozen Four appearances in 2008 and 2011 with one trip to the national championship game in ’08. From the start of the ’06-’07 season through the ’08’09 campaign, the Irish went 90-28-10 for a .742 winning percentage, tops in the nation. That three-season run was snapped in ’09-’10 when the Irish struggled to a 1317-8 mark before bouncing back with a 25-14-5 record last season while leading the CCHA regular-season race until the final game, finishing second with an 18-7-3-2 league record. Notre Dame won the NCAA Northeast Regional with wins over Merrimack and New Hampshire before

falling to eventual champion, Minnesota-Duluth, in the national semifinals in St. Paul, Minn. For his efforts in 2010-11, Jackson was named the CCHA Coach of the Year for the third time in his career. A 1978 Michigan State graduate with degrees in communication and education, Jackson took over the coaching reins at Notre Dame on May 6, 2005. During his six seasons behind the Irish bench, his teams are 141-79-27 (.624) and in 12 collegiate seasons he is 323131-52 with the top winning percentage (.691) among active Division I coaches. After a 13-19-4 inaugural campaign, Jackson saw his squad go 32-7-3 overall and 21-4-3 in the conference in ’06-’07 on the way to winning Notre Dame’s firstever CCHA regular season and tournament titles. For his efforts, Jackson won the 2007 Spencer Penrose Award as the Division I National Coach of the Year. He also won Coach of the Year honors from the CCHA, USCHO.com, Inside College Hockey.com and College Hockey News.com. In 2007-08, Jackson’s squad was 27-16-4 and finished fourth in the conference. They got hot at the right time, winning the NCAA West Regional in Colorado Springs, Colo., with wins over New Hampshire and Michigan State. At the NCAA Final Four, the Irish defeated Michigan, 5-4, in overtime, before falling in the title game, 4-1 to Boston College. The ’08-’09 season saw the Irish continue their impressive run as they were 31-6-3 overall while winning the CCHA with a 21-4-3-3 mark. The top seed in the 2009 NCAA Midwest Regional in Grand Rapids, Mich., Notre Dame was upset in the opening round by Bemidji State. Jackson got his collegiate coaching start in 1986 at Lake Superior as an assistant on Frank Anzalone’s staff, helping guide the Lakers to one CCHA title and the 1988 NCAA championship. When Anzalone left following the 1989-90 season, Jackson took over behind the Lakers’ bench, guiding them to a 182-52-25 (.751) record, two CCHA regular-

season titles, four CCHA championships and three consecutive NCAA finals, winning the national title in 1992 and 1994. Following the 1995-96 season, Jackson became 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, he led the U.S. Junior National Team to a then, best-ever, silver medal finish at the 1997 World Junior Championships. In 2000, Jackson moved on to the Ontario Hockey League’s Guelph Storm where he was 87-67-24-4 in two-plus seasons. He spent two seasons (2003-05) as an assistant coach with the New York Islanders before taking over at Notre Dame.

September 11, 2010 – The official ground breaking ceremonies were held for the new 5,000-seat Compton Family Ice Arena. The start of the building actually occurred in April, but a ceremony with all the donors and benefactors in attendance was held prior to the Notre Dame –Michigan football game. The new building, named after lead donors – Kevin and Gayla Compton and family – is a $50-million venue that will have two sheets of ice, the Charles “Lefty” Smith Rink and a second sheet of ice that will be Olympic sized. March 27, 2011 – Sophomore goaltender Mike Johnson stopped 37-of-38 shots and got all the offense he needed from Stephen Johns and Billy Maday as the Irish stopped New Hampshire, 2-1, to win the NCAA Northeast Regional. The victory sent the Irish to their second NCAA Frozen Four in the last four years. Johns scored in the first period while Maday made it 2-0 and Johnson did the rest as he surrendered just a third-period goal in the win. Johnson stopped 69of-73 shots in the regional to take regional MVP honors. He, along with Johns, Maday and Lee were named to the all-regional team. April 6, 2011 – The Fighting Irish made their second appearance in the Frozen Four at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., where they came up short in the semifinals to eventual champion, Minnesota-Duluth, 4-3, in the semifinals. The Bulldogs used three power-play goals to build a 4-2 lead after two periods. Jeff Costello, T.J. Tynan and Calle Ridderwall scored for the Irish. Mike Johnson made 17 saves in the game. Seniors Ryan Guentzel, Ben Ryan and Ridderwall became the first Notre Dame players to play in two Frozen Fours.

WESTERN MICHIGAN BRONCOS


WESTERN MICHIGAN BRONCOS

Joined CCHA: 1975-76

CCHA Record: 404-499-101

All-Time: 640-674-121

BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD - For the second straight season Western Michigan will have a new head coach. Former head coach Jeff Blashill, who replaced Jim Culhane, left for an assistant coaching position with the Detroit Red Wings after one season.

51ST to 100 - Senior forward Greg Squires is currently sitting at 81 career points on 18 goals and 63 assists. He sits just 19 away from becoming the 51st Bronco in program history to eclipse the 100 point mark. Should he succeed, it would be back-toback seasons with a Bronco breaking the century mark. Last season Max Campbell tallied his 100th point in a loss to Notre Dame, netting two goals on the night.

2011-12 SCHEDULE

TURNAROUND - Last year the Broncos improved their win total by 11 games from eight to 19. WMU won more CCHA games last season (10) than it had overall wins during the 2009-10 season (8). As a part of the turnaround the Broncos also set a NCAA record for ties in a season with 10. CAPTAIN IAN - For the second straight season Ian Slater will wear the “C” on his jersey. It is the third year that Slater will have a leadership position, as he was an assistant captain during his sophomore year. Juniors Dane Walters and Luke Witkowski are the assistant captains for this season. 170TH OVERALL - Over the summer Chase Balisy became the 49th Bronco to be selected in the NHL Entry Draft. Balisy was selected in the sixth round (170th overall) by the Nashville Predators and is the first Bronco to be selected by the Predators organization.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ - The 2011-12 Bronco hockey team will feature five players from the great state of California. Chase Balisy (Rancho Santa Margarita), Brett Beebe (Redondo Beach), Dennis Brown (Cypress), J.J. Crew (Placentia), Robert Francis (San Diego) and Matt Tennyson (Pleasanton) all hail from the Golden State. GOING THE DISTANCE - For the fourth straight season the Broncos will head out West to Fairbanks, Alaska to battle the Nanooks. In the past six games in Fairbanks the Broncos are 2-3-1. Last season WMU tied and then defeated the Nanooks in a two-game series.

Andy Murray is the only Canadian coach to win three gold medals at the World Championships.

Andy Murray was announced as the sixth head coach in the history of the Western Michigan men’s ice hockey program on July 26, 2011. Murray comes to WMU with an extensive resume earned at the highest level of professional hockey. He is one of only 39 coaches in NHL history to reach 300 wins with a career record of 333-278-58-71. Murray has 10 years of NHL head coaching experience, spending six seasons at the helm of the Los Angeles Kings and four with the St. Louis Blues. Murray is the Kings’ all-time franchise

leader in wins with 215 and led Los Angeles to three 90-point seasons in his tenure. During the 2008-09 season with St. Louis, he was a finalist for the Jack Adams Coach of the Year Award after guiding the Blues to a third-place finish in the Central Division. Murray has spent a total of 20 years as either a head or assistant coach in the NHL. He held assistant coaching positions with the Winnipeg Jets, Minnesota North Stars and Philadelphia Flyers. While he has not coached college hockey in the United States, he did coach at Brandon University, a Canadian college, for three seasons. In his short time he was able to turn Brandon into the top ranked program in all of Canadian college hockey. To go with his extensive professional coaching background, Murray also brings international experience. He coached Team Canada to gold medals at the 2007, 2003 and 1997 World Hockey Championships. He is the only Canadian coach in history to win three World Championships and he also held the highest winning percentage as a coach (64 percent) in the history of the Canadian Men’s National Team. He also holds six Spengler Cup Titles (an annual tournament in Switzerland) for Team Canada, a record for the country. Murray was

also a head coach in Europe, coaching three Swiss professional teams (EV Zug, Zurcher Schlittschuh, and EHC Kloten) and a German team, EHC Berlin, in the early 80’s and early 90’s. A native of Souris, Manitoba, Murray and his wife, Ruth, have three children, all of which play professional hockey in Switzerland. His youngest son Jordy played for the University of Wisconsin and his oldest son Brady played for North Dakota. His daughter Sarah played Division I college hockey at Minnesota-Duluth, where she was a part of two national championship teams.

DIRECTIONS TO WMU

LAWSON ICE ARENA

From Interstate 94: Exit at Oakland Drive and proceed North. Turn left onto Howard. Go through a stoplight and over railroad tracks at Stadium Drive. Take second right past tracks and turn right at the next two stop signs. Proceed over bridge and take second right, driving past the front of the arena to the parking area.

Harry W. Lawson Ice Arena, named in honor of the founding father of WMU hockey, has been home to the Broncos since the 1974-75. Western Michigan is embarking on its’ 37th season in the facility. Major renovations were completed in recent years to the interior of Lawson, as new locker rooms were built and space was added to the team’s equipment and athletic training areas. A team meeting room and lounge were also added and improvements were made to the coaches locker area. Lawson has a reputation as one of the loudest and rowdiest arenas in the CCHA and that is, in part, thanks to the strong student support. The “Lawson Lunatics” have been known to line up outside for hours in bad weather in anticipation of big games. The Lunatics sported pink t-shirts during the Broncos’ “Hockey Cares” cancer awareness weekend during a series with Northern Michigan. When the Lunatics are in full force the numbers can reach up to 1,500 to give the Broncos a great home-ice advantage.

From U.S. 131: Use Stadium Drive East exit. Proceed east on Stadium until the stoplight at Howard Street. Turn left onto Howard, then follow above.

Minnesota Duluth won its first first ever NCAA title with a 3-2 overtime win over the Michigan Wolverines on April 7, 7 2011 at the Xcel Energy Center in St.Paul, St Paul MN. MN The CCHA had four squads qualify for the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive year and had two teams qualify for the Frozen Four for the first time since 2008. After winning its first Mason Cup playoff title in school history, Miami was awarded the No. 1 seed in the Northeast Regional. Despite entering the Tournament on a 13-game unbeaten streak, the RedHawks fell in the opening round to New Hampshire, 3-1. Western Michigan earned its first NCAA Tournament bid since 1996 after a fourth-place finish in the regular season and advancing to the CCHA Championship Game for the first time since 1986. With the No. 3 seed in the Midwest Regional, the Broncos took on Denver. The Broncos roared out to a 2-0 lead, but the Pioneers scored two goals late

| 82 |

in the third period and eventually won the game in double overtime, 3-2. Notre Dame was seeded third in the Northeast Regional and drew Merrimack in the opening round. After settling nothing through three periods, freshman forward Anders Lee proved to be the hero with the overtime winner, giving the Irish a 4-3 victory. Notre Dame went on to play New Hampshire the next night and earned a spot in the Frozen Four with a 2-1 victory on the strength of 37 saves from sophomore goaltender Mike Johnson. Michigan was given a No. 2 seed in the West Regional and drew Nebraska-Omaha in the opening round. Like the Irish, the Wolverines needed overtime to advance as sophomore forward Kevin Lynch notched the winner in a 3-2 victory over the Mavericks. Michigan solidified their NCAA-best 24th

Frozen Four appearance with a 2-1 victory over Colorado College the next day. Notre Dame played in the first game of the Frozen Four against Minnesota Duluth. After the two teams put out a five-goal first period, the goaltending improved and the game came down to the wire with Minnesota Duluth coming out on top, 4-3. Michigan had the demading task of battling North Dakota, the only remaining No.1 seed at the Frozen Four and the owner of the nation’s secondbest offense. Michigan senior goaltender Shawn Hunwick stole the show and the Wolverines shut out the Fighting Sioux, 2-0. In search of its 10th national title, Michigan battled Minnesota Duluth to the wire, but the Wolverines fell one goal short as the Bulldogs won the game in overtime, 3-2.

2011 NHL AWARDS

Former Lake Superior State University star s Doug Weight (right) capped off his N Hall of Fame career by winning the NHL King Clancy Memorial Trophy at the 2011 K NHL N Awards Show in Las Vegas The trophy - presented annually to the p player who “best exemplifies leadership q qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution i his community” - is a fitting tribute in t the four-time NHL All-Star who anto n nounced his retirement in May after 19 s seasons. “I’m really proud to have been picked a recognized, first of all by my team and and s secondly by the NHL from a group of 30 w worthy players who made commitments t their teams and their communities,” to W Weight said. “I’m really honored to accept t award.” this Weight played in only 18 games last s season but still maintained his leadership r with a young Islanders team at pracrole Ohio State University alumnus Ryan Kesler grew up in Michigan playing for his father Mike, who always preached that the best players were dangerous offensively and responsible defensively. The Vancouver Canucks star center has learned that lesson well and captured the 2011 Frank Selke Trophy in recognition of “the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game,” as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association. Kesler was nominated for the award for the third straight year and received 105 of the 127 first-place votes. He is the first winner of the award in Canucks history. “It’s something that eluded me the past couple of years and it’s nice to finally win it, mostly for my dad, he supported me growing up and for him I definitely have a lot to repay him for,” said Kesler. Kesler helped the Canucks record the

lowest team goals-against average in the NHL (2.20) for the first time in franchise history. He ranked fourth among NHL forwards in blocked shots (80), appeared in all 82 games and averaged a career-high 20:29 in ice time to lead all Vancouver forwards. Kesler also ranked sixth among NHL centers in face-offs taken (1,496), winning a team-best and career-high 57.4% of them (859), dished out 124 hits; recorded a team-high 65 takeaways and posted a +24 rating. “Obviously my teammates were a big part of this and I couldn’t have done it without them,” he said. “When you play on a great team and have great guys like I have, and great role models like Trevor Linden and Markus Naslund, to bring you up the right way, it’s easier to win awards like this.”

Pittsburgh’s Dan Bylsma became the first head coach in Penguins’ history to win the Jack Adams Award last season as the National Hockey League’s “most outstanding coach.” Bylsma played four seasons at Bowling Green State University (1988-92) and started his coaching career as an assistant with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (AHL) in 2004. “It’s an honor to receive this award,” said Bylsma. “There wasn’t enough time to thank the media. I know the media has voted on this one, so it’s a privilege and quite an honor.” After leading Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup championship in 2009, Bylsma guided the Penguins to one of their most successful seasons in team history. Pittsburgh finished with a 49-25-8 | 84 |

tice and also served as an assistant coach for the final games of the season. “Let’s not pull any punches – I’m a better leader when I’m playing at a high level, so that was a challenge for me,” Weight said. “Throughout my career, when I was a captain or in a leadership role and was healthy, it made that accountability level a lot easier. Of course, you still have to challenge your teammates whether you’re hurt or not, but when you’re not playing every day and getting a chance to produce, it’s a real challenge.” In addition, Weight was able to get more involved in the Islanders’ community service initiatives this season, including the team’s Children’s Foundation and school day event. “It’s a pleasure to have my last year finish like this, at the awards show with all of these great players. I’ve met so many great people in the NHL and to be recognized like this is very humbling.”

overall record, 106 points and home-ice advantage in the first round of the NHL playoff despite suffering 350 man-games lost due to injury, including 119 from the team’s top-three scorers in Sidney Crosby (41 games), Evgeni Malkin (39) and Jordan Staal (39). Pittsburgh’s 49 wins and 106 points were both the second-best marks in franchise history. “This award is really just an indication of what the players did and what our team did throughout the year, throughout that adversity,” Bylsma said. “Well, I look at Scotty Bowman and see his handful of rings, and I still think there’s a lot to do,” Bylsma said. “It’s such a challenge every day with the team and the players. It’s been seven years since I started coaching but it feels like it’s gone by in a flash. It’s exciting.”

INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY

WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS The International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships are held annually for two weeks in December and January. Players under 20 years old are chosen by their country’s national governing body to participate in this international event. To date, 109 CCHA players have represented their respective countries in the World Junior Championships. Two CCHA players hold a place in the World Junior Championship record book. Lake Superior’s Doug Weight ranks second in assists in a single WJC tournament (1991) with 14. Michigan’s Jason Botterill is the only player in tournament history to be a member of three consecutive gold medal winning teams (Canada in 1994, 1995 and 1996). The 2012 World Junior Championships will be held December 26, 2011 through January 5, 2012 in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta.

NCAA TOURNAMENT NOTES For the second consecutive year, two CCHA teams were awarded No.1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan and Notre Dame received No. 1 seeds in 2009, while Michigan and Miami were No. 1 seeds in 2008. Michigan became the first CCHA school to earn No. 1-seeds in consecutive years since the Wolverines did so in 1994 and 1995. For the third consecutive year a CCHA team advanced to the National Championship game, with Miami falling to Boston University 4-3 in overtime. It marked the first time in league history that three different schools had reached the National Championship game in consecutive seasons. The last time the CCHA had a representative in the National Championship game was when Lake Superior reached the title game from 1992-1994.
