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.

Well under the circumstances I think the women are doing alright. Because of njuries they've been playing on a regular basis with only five defensemen. Forward Julia McKinnon has actually been playing defense which shorts the offense too. Although Alex LaMere is making strides in net the Bucks are also without last year's stellar rookie goalie Kassidy Sauve, also due to injury. Hopefully the team can heal up a little over the holiday break and be ready to take the next step in the second half of the season.

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.
