Born in the middle of an ice storm and destined to be a hockey fan. My grandma has never forgiven me for chucking my sweet sixteen party in favor of attending the Ohio State-Miami game. I'm excited to be covering the awesomeness that is Buckeye hockey for Eleven Warriors.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Buckeyes' run to the Frozen Four in 1998. Any game in which Ohio State beats Miami is a good game, but January 8, 2011 was a particularly memorable one with John Albert bringing OSU all the way back from an 0-2 hole. The blowout of Notre Dame in the 2010 CCHA playoffs was pretty fun too.

Sorry. I missed this last week. Even if the team keeps moving in the right direction and injured players return no worse for the time off, with the record Ohio State is posting in the first half it's still going to be difficult for the team to make much of a move within the WCHA. Fourth place is the absolute max. Fifth is more attainable. If the Buckeyes make it out of the first round of the conference tournament it would likely mean they upset a top 10 team which would be a fantastic end to the season. Maybe it's the wrong view to take but I'm kind of looking at this year's progress as a big lead into next season.

Well, last week was a little different because I had a family matter to attend to. But ordinarily there will be hockey coverage on Fridays at 3:45 p.m and directly following each game. The conferences put out their weekly honors on Tuesday so if any Buckeyes earn a mention there will be a post about that as well. If remembering the hockey schedule isn't going to work, I think you can check my staff page for new content.

The guys have drawn about 4,700 per night in their two home games. The ladies have skated four home games with an average attendance of 350. Last season's averages were around 4,800 and 350 so it's holding steady.

Ha ha, yeah, that would easily floor a person.  Both the men's (4,700/per game) and women's (350/game) are pretty on par with last season's attendance. The men's number may dip some in the next couple weeks. Atlantic Hockey doesn't usually draw a big crowd at the Schott. But the numbers will go up in the second half when Big Ten play starts.

Yeah the ladies' early schedule was brutal with Wisconsin and Minnesota back to back. Traditionally the Bucks play well against next week's opponent Minnesota State, so I'm hopeful I'll finally have some good results to report! 

I feel like the men are headed in the right direction. The in-conference portion of the season, especially if the Big Ten continues its underwhelming non-conference play, could be very interesting.
