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.

Maybe. They have a couple big regular season series left (No. 2 Minnesota and No. 1 Wisconsin) that provide an opportunity to move back up. I'm going to guess that as long as they win two of those four games and don't lose any to Bemidji or St. Cloud then they'll be solidly in. But I suspect we'll be closely monitoring the computer projections right up to selection day.

It is ok to have your skates in the paint provided that you do not interfere (in the referee's opinion) with the goalie's ability to make a save. As for the goalie's stick, that's a different call every time based on where the puck is, player positioning, and how comfortable a goalie is playing without his stick. Dominik Hasek used to drop his on purpose to make saves. It's different for every goalie. Tonight, it probably wouldn't have mattered either way for Lethemon. And lastly, you're welcome :)
