Wednesday's Wildcat Alumni Weekly

Headlining the week's performances by UNH Men's Hockey alumni in the pros is Jason Krog. Following the scoring of the game online I watched as Krog's Moose piled up a 4-0 lead over Darren Haydar, Garrett Stafford and their Griffins. Krog figured in two of the first four, a goal and an assist, then was listed as assisting twice more late in the second period and early in the third. A four point outburst on a goal and three assists - not bad! But, they got it wrong. Krog SCORED twice more, late in the second and early in the third, to cap the hat-trick plus an assist which earned him some top billing on Unfortunately that would be all the scoring that he would do over the week's three games.

On some good advice from their coaches (maybe Jason had something to do with it) Haydar and Stafford were shutdown in that game, breaking Darren's five game scoring streak. But in the final two games of the past week he started a new streak, scoring a goal in each match. Stafford has been quiet the last week, adding just one assist.

Mike Radja picked up a goal last night but his IceHogs fell to their fellow porcine represented foes, Eric Boguniecki and his Iowa Chops. Bogs also had a goal since last Wednesday's WWAW.

Derek Bekar had a multi-point night with his Springfield Falcons with a goal and assist Saturday night.

Trevor Smith had two multiple-point games with two assists on Friday night and a goal and assist the next night giving him four points in his Sound Tigers' three game weekend and the four games since last week's update.

In less fortunate news, Kevin Regan and Matt Fornataro were sent to their respective ECHL teams due to personnel moves and to improve their games which is certainly not mincing words - nearly four hundred ECHL alumni have gone on to play in the NHL, many of them goaltenders.

Regan is now a teammate of Vermont alum, Joe Fallon, with the Gwinnett Gladiators.

Fornataro represented the Phoenix Roadrunners and the National Conference in the 12th Annual ECHL All-Star Skills Competition presented by Guardian Wearâ„¢. Matt was fifth in the CCM U+ Fastest Skater competition.

Colin Hemingway also participated in the event, taking part in the MeiGray Group Accuracy Shooting Competition. The Alaska Ace is obviously better at scoring than shooting, as the league's sixth leading scorer, hit just one target.

Currently the lone active alum in the NHL, Ty Conklin, had an up and down pair of games. First shutting out the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday then suffering six goals last night at the hands of fellow Wildcat alum, Dan Winnik's Phoenix Coyotes. Dan was a scratch for the game.

That's all for this week! Until next...

Go 'Cats!

word around campus is that Charlabios has been ruled out for the year. I found this after I heard the rumor.
