DU News & Notes

Tyler Bozak has five short handed goals tying him for the NCAA lead with CC's Chad Rau. DU leads the nation in shorthanded goals with 10.

DU recruit Joe Colborne is the second leading scorer in the Alberta Junior Hockey League with 90 points in 54 games. Fellow DU recruit Shawn Ostrow is 20th in the league in scoring. Ostrow is the leading rookie scorer in the AJHL.

Former DU player Gabe Gauthier scored with less than 8 seconds left on Saturday night to force overtime, as the AHL Manchester Monarchs defeated the Norfork Admirals in a shootout.

DU recruit Matt Donovan scored a goal this weekend and remains in second place in the USHL in +/- with +24. Donovan is also fifth in the USHL in defenseman scoring.

DU will clinch third place in the WCHA if Minnesota State and St. Cloud State lose any of their remaining four games or DU wins one of its remaining four games.

On Friday night former DU player Paul Stastny scored a goal for the NHL Colorado Avalanche in his first game back after missing five weeks with Appendicitis and a groin injury.

Shawn Ostrow looks to be having a pretty good season. 20th in scoring, but if I'm reading the stats page correctly, he's the #1 rookie. He's also a little taller than Kyle listed at 5'11"

Thanks for the heads up. I'll add the rookie info to the posting.

Bozak has had and is having a terrific freshman year. He is a great player. He'd have to be at the top of the list for league ROY if not for Bachman's incredible season.

Let Bachman win ROY and have Bozak or Mannino win MOP of the Frozen Four. :-)
