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.

Favorites

  • 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.

The WCHA does have a tournament. It starts next week with best-of-three series hosted by the conference's top seeds (1st-4th place). The winners move on to the single-elimination semifinals and final the following week in Minneapolis.  And, yes, the conference tourney champ will get an auto bid to the NCAA tournament.

I couldn't find one. Healey did make contact with the Wisconsin player's head. It's possible that his reputation was an additional factor in the conference's decision. Healey has a history of Big open ice hits that flirt with the line of legality.
