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.

Not that I'm aware of. They might have overachieved a little bit, though they did put together some very good games against tough opponents late in the season. For whatever reason UND and UMD really had the Buckeyes' number this season. The lady Bucks actually earned more points in their combined season series against Minnesota and Wisconsin than they did against Duluth and NoDak.

Yep. Even if they somehow miraculously won out it might not be enough for the regular season title, and it definitely wouldn't be enough for an at large bid to the NCAA tournament. The Big Ten likely won't get any teams in the big tourney with an at large.

Yep. Between graduation and early departures they lost something like their top five scorers from last season. Almost half of this year's team is freshmen.

Second from the left is Buckeye assistant captain Kara Gust.

We tried a different kind of format this year, but always glad to know my "art" has fans :)

Probably Michigan, because the hockey gods hate us. Seriously, though, I'm terrible at brackets. If I were to hazard a guess... I never know what's going on out east, but in the west Minnesota State is looking good. My dark horse right now is Duluth. They've been steadily climbing the rankings. They're also pretty battle-tested. 21 of their 26 games this season have been played against then-top 20 ranked teams.
