News & Notes From Around Pioneer Nation

DU fans who want to attend games down at the Springs this season against Air Force and/or Colorado College can now purchase tickets online. DU plays CC on December 4th and March 6th in World Arena. Plenty of good seats are available as CC will be residing in the WCHA basement for most of the season. DU will play Air Force on Feb. 6th.

Former DU goaltender Peter Mannino has been assigned to the AHL Chicago Wolves by the Atlanta Thrashers. Mannino made his NHL debut in three games with the New York Islanders last season, notching a 1-1-0 record with a 4.52 goals-against average and .870 save percentage, which includes earning his first career NHL victory in his first NHL start against the Chicago Blackhawks on March 15. The 25-year-old netminder, who backstopped the University of Denver to the 2005 NCAA Championship, also appeared in 34 outings for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL) during his rookie campaign last year, posting a 17-12-2 record, 2.94 goals-against average and .900 save percentage.

so how much damage does this do to the team?

Jackson was a 12 point, fourth line player, so the "damage" to team is minimal from a production standpoint. Where his loss will be felt will be over the course of a season, where you need some big bodied players to wear down opponents and create time and space for skilled players.
