Wildcat Successes

Congrats to our 'Cats for a hard fought win last night!

Time to move into the new year!

But before we do let's celebrate some recent Alumni success.

Jason Krog scored, keeping his 9 game scoring streak alive during which he has 20 points and staying on top of the AHL with 46 points in 32 games, assisted by Darren Haydar, Haydar's second assist of the night and 13th point since returning to the AHL from the NHL in just 6 games. WOW. But the Chicago Wolves lose 5-2 - their first loss since the Return of the Captain, Darren Haydar. New Year coming guys!

Josh Prudden scored in back to back games as his Worcester Sharks lost to the Manchester Monarchs in overtime. Keep up the great work in the new year, Josh!

In the ECHL Preston Callander is finding success with the Florida Everblades scoring in back to back games as well. The goal gives him 2 goals and 1 assist in four games after being held pointless in his first two. The Everblades have won both games in which he has scored by a 5-4 margin, the first thanks in part to a shootout goal from Preston's stick as well.

Now we'll interject with word of the success of the United States World Junior Team and that of Wildcat freshman, James vanRiemsdyk. James has netted three goals and three assists in their three games and three victories. He was also named player of the game in the first game for a one goal, one assist effort. His second game was a one goal, two assist affair and in the most recent game, a 4-2 win over Russia, saw James scoring the go-ahead goal with the game tied at one. Way to go, James!

You can see the highlights of their success through the All-Access Pass.


And saving the best for last. Goaltenders Rock! First, Ty Conklin, records his first NHL shutout since January 3rd, 2006, as he and his Pittsburgh Penguins defeated Ty's last team, the Buffalo Sabres. The win gives Ty the best possible look at starting in his second Winter Classic outdoor game. If you haven't already, clear your schedule for 1pm EDT on the first of 2008! This game is going to be great! And on the same night, Kevin Regan, surpasses Greg Moffett (2,602) for the All-Time UNH goaltender record for saves at 2,608 and counting. Congratulations Ty! Congratulations Kevin!

Here's to the New Year! (I'm saving Happy New Year till the 4th!)

Go 'Cats!
