I think GPL’s gonna miss the criticism line be honest :mrgreen: What was your favorite Sammy and Mac play of their four years? Mine has to be the jerseygate overtime winner in Cloud this year. That play perfectly encapsulated their game so well :biggrin2: I feel like they ran that back door play about 70 times over their four years. Definitely a dynamic duo!

End of an era. Walker a 3 year captain and his linemate for most of that time, Blake McLaughlin. Very solid players. I get their limitations, both were smaller forwards, but they played hard and well with lots of speed. Lots of chemistry between them. After their final game Thursday, it was interesting that Sammy Walker went into the locker room almost right away, Blake and Ben Brinkman stayed out on the ice for a long time.

But, the wonderful thing about college hockey is that end of an era as it is, that is put in the memory and pictures on the walls of Mariucci, and another era begins.
