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.

I do not know for sure. I suspect that it was just a rest day for Sauve after such a busy night on Friday. If she got banged up at all it was a smart move to sit her. She's been so phenomenal this season it's hard to remember she's coming off a double hip surgery. And she's too important to the team's second half success to risk injury against a team like Wisconsin.

Thanks. Recruiting (mans and women's) would make a good holiday break post. I'll see what I can whip up. Maybe a week from Friday so I can do the proper research.

Yup. Ohio State, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Penn State all already have D-I women's hockey programs. Just need the Wolverines and Spartans to join the party.

No problem. It can be confusing. If Michigan and Michigan State would just get their acts together we could fire up a Big Ten women's hockey conference and then there wouldn't be an issue.

Cruiser is right. It's the women's overall then conference records. The top tables relate to the OSU women who are not ranked but are receiving votes in the national polls. The bottom table is for the Big Ten where the men compete. The guys' team is ranked No. 10. 

Comment 04 Dec 2016

That's an interesting idea but I don't think it's one the NCAA is looking to apply to its hockey tournament in the immediate future. They would either have to go to a 32 team field which would mean inviting more than 50% of all the D-I men's hockey teams or else add fewer teams and drastically restructuring of the tourney format to introduce first round byes for the top seeds. If this is even under consideration by the NCAA I expect it will be some years yet before they adopt such a big change.

Hey if you have another word for outshooting your opponent 46-17, winning two-thirds of the faceoffs, etc. let me know. I'll use it next time.

UConn is supposed to be around midpack in Hockey East this year and HE is supposed to field one of the best conferences in the country. The Huskies have only lost three games and all of those losses have been to teams ranked No. 14 or better. So far it's shaping up to be a pretty good season for them.
