News & Notes From Around Pioneer Nation

DU Alum Adam Berkhoel, who is recovering from an offseason knee surgery, accompanied the AHL Wilkes Barre-Penguins an exhibition road trip last weekend, but didn’t suit up for the game. Berkhoel had two knee surgeries during the summer and said he is anxious to get back on the ice. “It’s taking a little longer than expected and I want to get back in there and show what I can do,” he said. “I last skated in July and the surgery was nothing major, but I want to get back out there with the guys.”

Tyler Bozak had an assist, as the Toronto Maple Leafs won in a shootout 3-2 over the Stanly Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins in an exhibition game. It looks like Bozak will make the opening night roster for the Maple Leafs.

Former DU player Brock Trotter will play for the Hamilton Bulldogs this season.

University of Denver women's golfer Stephanie Sherlock carded a second-round low 69 on Tuesday to jump atop the leaderboard of the Ron Moore Women's Intercollegiate at Highlands Ranch Golf Club. Sherlock, at 1-under-par 143, is tied with Baylor's Hannah Burke. Denver's Kimberly Kim trails at 1-over 145, tied with first-round leader Alice Kim of Cal-Davis. The Pioneers, ranked No. 5 nationally, pulled away from the pack in the team standings and led Baylor by 13 strokes.

Nice!

The play where Bozak got his assist was on ESPNs top plays this morning.

They seem to be wanting to follow the Leafs and Bozak. I wonder if this will mean we see a few more DU blurbs on the show during the season... its a stretch - I know - but I can hope!

TSN has been televising the Leafs preseason games in Canada and ESPN owns 20% of TSN.

I'd expect we'll see more Bozak clips on Sports Center this season.
