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.

Yeah the standings are slightly improved. The men didn't change positions but they're three points closer to Penn State (swept by Michigan) and three points farther ahead of Wisconsin (non-conference week). The women added three points to their cushion over Minnesota State which is never bad.

The men are ahead of Michigan State in the standings. Tonight's win keeps them in fourth but gives them 12 Big Ten points, stretching their lead on the Spartans and Badgers (6 each). The Bucks are six points back of third place Penn State (18), which was swept by Michigan this week. The Wolverines and Gophers (24 each) are tied at the top of the conference.

I didn't have a real good view of Healey's hit but two games doesn't sound crazy. It probably would have been just the one without his having previously been suspended.

Martin's suspension seemed reasonable too. He'll actually end up missing three games because the extra Big Ten suspension only applies to regular games, not the exhibition Michigan played last week.

The surprise, I think, is that the B1G didn't come down any harder on Eddie Wittchow for a dangerous hit late in a game in which Wisconsin was no longer competitive.

It isn't just you. I've seen six or eight mentions, all pretty amped about him. I figured there must be more to him than the internet scouting but cannot figure out just what the "more" is.

P.S. Dang autocorrect. FYI for those who don't know, the gentleman's name is Vincent de Mey, not "de May."

Comment 17 Jan 2016

Guys, what am I missing about Vincent de May? The Buckeye internet community is buzzing about his commitment but I can't find anything (at least online) to suggest significantly greater potential than either the late round NHL picks already on OSU's roster (Joshua, Nanne, Fidler, Tomkins) or a projected late round recruit like Tanner Laczynski who was also rated a "C" by Central Scouting. A good pick up, sure, but I'm confused about the sudden wave of excitement. Perhaps someone with eyewitness knowledge could explain?
