Wednesday Linkorama

The UW Men's Hockey Team has begun their small group workouts.

Tom Gilbert is listed as the #12 prospect in the Edmonton Oilers system which is full of great defensive prospects.

Kyle Klubertanz is the #16 prospect in the Anaheim Ducks system. Hockey's Future feels he may need to have a good comeback season in order to be offered a contract.

A number of recruits have recently been added to UW-Eau Claire's incoming player list. I've been keeping an eye on this to see if the departure of Head Coach Luke Strand really messes up their recruiting, or if they're able to overcome his departure and add some decent talent. In several cases I'm not sure what to make of their recruits, as two different players' most recent stats are from 2004-2005....and I'm not sure where they've been for the past 2+ years!

Canada claimed game 6 of the Canada Russia "not so" Super Series tonight by a score of 4-1. UW recruit Kyle Turris was held off the score sheet. The final two games will be played on Friday and Sunday, at which time Turris will be racing back to Wisconsin for classes and practice.
