College Hockey Blog Mini Round-Up (September 22nd)

Darn collegiate work cutting into my blogging. BARGH! Oh, and we are dangerously close to October. YIPPEE!

● First, a news note, as it appears that Notre Dame is another step closer towards a new hockey arena. According to the Notre Dame Observer, $15 million was recently donated anonymously towards a planned new arena. According to the article, Notre Dame is planning a budget of $25-30 million for the project. Read the article at USCHO.com.

Some bloggery.

Michigan has picked up a new commitment in forward Luke Moffett, according to WCH. Moffett, who is considered to be the one of the nation’s best 1992-born recruits, will play for the NTDP for the next two years. Read about it here.

Another Michigan note, in celebration of being less than a month away from starting season play, The Blog that Yost Built is taking a look at each Wolverine making up the U-of-Mich. 26-man roster. Already posted: Scooter Vaughan, Chris Summers, Steve Kampfer, and Chad Langlais.

● The WCHA Blog has announced its #1 WCHA city – Duluth, Minnesota. The blogger at the WCHA Blog notes that the only setback for Duluth is access to the city (acting as home for the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs). However, its bars, its family-friendly atmosphere, its plentiful lodging, and UMD’s ticket availability warrants an “A” rating for the city of Duluth, and the WCHA blog’s #1 overall city rating. Read about it here.

North Dakota, according to the WCHA blog, has picked up a commitment for 2008 in Grand Forks native Mario Lamoureux, who originally committed to Northern Michigan. Incidentally, it appears as though the Lamoureux family has a thriving hockey pedigree – Philippe Lamoureux, a senior, is currently the #1 goalie for North Dakota, and Jacques Lamoureux, who previously played for Northern Michigan, is currently in the process of transferring to Air Force.
