Ruegsegger Earns Frequent Flier Miles Watching DU

From: Denver Post


Tyler Ruegsegger will miss his seventh and eighth consecutive games when the University of Denver plays Michigan Tech on Friday and Saturday in Houghton, Mich. Ruegsegger has a nagging abdominal and groin injury, but the sophomore from Lakewood is traveling with the team, paying his expenses. Ruegsegger paid his way on DU's trip to North Dakota two weeks ago.

"He's not close to playing," DU coach George Gwozdecky said of Ruegsegger, who has 10 goals and 10 assists in 24 games. "He's able to skate before and after practice but has not been cleared to practice."

The Pioneers have four regular-season games remaining, including two against Colorado College on March 7 and 8. Ruegsegger might not play until the WCHA playoffs, which begin March 14.

Hopefully DU gets Tyler back for the CC series. DU will need his speed.

Does anyone know how much it costs to watch the games through the DU website? I thought for sure FSN would televise next weekend's showdown with CC, but it looks as though neither of those games is on TV, which really sucks for those of us without tickets.

Its around 10 bucks for a 30 day subscription.

Doubt we'll see Tyler before the WCHA playoffs. DU might want to just rest him until the NCAA playoffs on March 28th.

So he's... in Houghton but not going to play?

He's in Houghton because he wants to meet you, meanegirl.
