Another UNH Bad Boy - In a Good Way! (+)

Newly minted NHL tough guy for the Phoenix Coyotes, Daniel Winnik, makes Wildcat Nation proud by doing his part to stop on ice hockey crime. Add to the fact that he averages about a point every fourth game and you have a solid NHL third/fourth line player making his rookie year count!

Thanks to unh_hockey over at the message boards for reminding me of this video and thanks to aparch for this on the Chicago Wolves' Captain.

And following up on the Darren Haydar hat-trick a few nights ago is this article detailing the event from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel highlighted by this quote:
"A couple of fans made me mad and called me a traitor in warm-ups, so I took it a little personally and had to do my job," Haydar said. "I'm just kidding. That's not it. I come to do my job every night."

Hard to stay down with positive news like this buoying up Wildcat Nation. Look to see Ty Conklin put his perfect 7-0 record on the line tonight against the Florida Panthers. The last time out Conklin and his Pittsburgh Penguins made the Panthers look like kittens with a 3-0 shutout - 35 saves for Ty. His stats stand at a 2.00 Goals Against Average and a .939 save percentage - truly phenomenal numbers. Daniel Winnik and the Phoenix Coyotes will skate against the Calgary Flames north of the border. And we can see Kevin Regan's future team, the local favorites in Wildcat Nation outside of our Wildcats, the Boston Bruins as they look to put together a four game win streak for the first time this year when the Carolina Hurricanes come to town sporting the newly garnered Bruins' 1998 Calder Trophy winner, Sergei Samsonov.

(+)A late addition to this post, Preston Callander, is lauded by the ECHL with Player of the Week Honors for his great play recently.

Go 'Cats!
