St. Cloud – SCSU President Earl H. Potter III, husky hockey head coach Bob Motzko, and Dan Brooks — son of the late great Herb Brooks — came together Wednesday afternoon to announce that the National Hockey and Event Center has been renamed to the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.
They say renaming the newly updated facility is appropriate considering the vision and the legacy of the late great former Husky head coach.
After a dominating performance by the SCSU men’s golf team, the wait to take the NSIC title is over.
It’s been 38 years since the Huskies have won the title; in 1975 it was the Northern Intercollegiate Conference. The men have come close in recent years, placing second in 2012 and 2009, and third place in 2010 and 2011.
In the past two years the men have held a significant lead after phase one, but haven’t been able to seal the deal in the final two rounds.
A disappointing ending to the season would only be putting it mildly for the SCSU Huskies.
A disappointing ending to a pair of great collegiate careers would help sum it up.
However, the end to SCSU’s season did write school history.
The Quinnipiac Bobcats scored quickly, didn’t look back from there and cruised past the Huskies 4-1 in the second Frozen Four semifinal and into the championship game against ECAC conference rival Yale.
Do you not know a single thing about the Frozen Four game happening Thursday, but you feel pressured to at least have a few talking points?
Well, here’s a quick guide going into tomorrow’s game, including each team’s main players. So when your boyfriend is talking about how much he dislikes that Peca guy, you will be able to say, “Oh yeah, I hate Peca. How did that bum finish with 30 points this season?”
As the Atwood Ballroom continued to fill, the Husky men’s hockey team took the stage before heading to the airport and their eventual destination — Pittsburgh and the Frozen Four.
The Husky Sports Band and the Cheer Team set the tone for the crowd, which was buzzing with anticipation for a moment never before seen at SCSU. Both the band and the Cheer Team will accompany the hockey team to their first ever Frozen Four appearance.
The United States of America celebrated a historical moment in November of 2008 when the first African-American became president. Many celebrated this moment, not only for the historical moment in the country’s history, but also as a sign that the country was moving past the racial prejudices and stereotypes which have plagued the nation since its beginning. As he was re-elected the nation rejoiced again. I, however, am not rejoicing, as I do not see this as a progression away from the prejudices and stereotypes.
A two minute stretch of four-on-four hockey proved to be the difference in the Huskies 4-2 loss at the hands of the number-one-ranked team in the nation, University of Minnesota Golden Gophers.
SCSU’s much-anticipated series against the Gophers opened to a standing-room-only crowd Friday night at the NHEC.
The Huskies, sitting atop the WCHA, hosted the Gophers, who began the series five points behind the Huskies and in third place, for the final games between the two schools where points are on the line.
