I bet the PWHL leadership love the name ‘Minnesota Wild’. This whole list is just adjectives… where are the nouns people??

What a goofy list

Gophers goalie coach added to Minnesota team.

PWHL Minnesota has added Jake Bobrowski and Mira Jalosuo as assistant coaches. Bobrowski was most recently the bench boss at Elmira College while Jalosuo was an assistant at St. Cloud State. They have also hired Johnny Seibel as a skills coach and Brennan Poderzay as a goalie coach.

We have a look ahead to the PWHL’s next draft.

PWHL Draft: November Rankings

Not much of a Maroon M Small  presence in this prognostication. Madeline Wethington at 39. Ex-Gophers at 20 and 32.

This sounds more than just an interim situation. It is quite a writeup for just a few weeks.

Terrible situation in the Swedish Women’s League (SDHL).

https://thehockeynews.com/womens/international/hakala-paralyzed-from-chest-down-following-on-ice-incident

A poster on the USCHO women’s board had this

The Athletic reports Finland Olympian Sanni Hakala paralyzed from chest down after goalpost collision. I post because of her response: "This situation obviously sucks but I'm not scared to take it on." Remarkable.

5 minutes of 4 on 3 in OT and we had no clue what to do.

And with Murphy knocked out no one can make a solo play.

Team USA leads Canada 2-1 after 1 in game 3 of the Rivalry Series. Murphy with a goal and a penalty. Airing on the NHL network.

Season Preview: PWHL Minnesota

The new question of the day is how the last minute coaching change with Charlie Burggraf leaving the team, being replaced by Ken Klee less than a week before puck drops on the PWHL season. There's much belief that Burggraf wasn't a fit for the team and that internal conflict was brewing, so the change was made to start the season fresh.

I just saw that the PWHL added a rule that a short handed goal would end a penalty. Anyone have an idea what the logic is behind that rule?

Man. They really want the MN vs BOS game to be close after that goal no goal. MN has been given 3 penalties since then.

It’s an assumption based on trademark filings. But not necessarily for sure or real.

Wish the powers that be wouldn’t have scheduled the PWHL and the Gopher Women’s game tomorrow at basically the same time.

That would require the UofM to think outside the box.

The Gophers schedule was set quite a bit before the PWHL schedule, so, in this case, can't blame the U

 

B1G refs... corrupt, or just incompetent?

I live less than an hour from Total Mortgage Arena in Bridgeport, CT, so I went to the New York home opener against Toronto. Good to see Savannah Norcross playing in the pros, she's on the top penalty killing unit for NY.

I really enjoyed and appreciate Savannah’s time wearing the Maroon M Small . Things maybe didn’t go exactly the way she would have hoped here, but she never took a shift off.

How would "thinking outside the box" have prevented this situation?

Presumably by deciding in mid-December to throw away the scheduling/planning work they'd done for use of Ridder arena, transportation for UConn, fan expectations for game start time, and re-do all that in less than a month, in order to accommodate something that didn't even exist on Thanksgiving weekend.

I didn’t mean to work up the masses. I just would have liked to attend both. I am curious to see how the first game frenzy for the PWHL game will affect the crowd at Ridder this afternoon. Nice crowd last night for a holiday season non-conference game.
