Former DU Captain Ryan Caldwell's father, Bob, has been named as an assistant coach on the Western Michigan University hockey staff. Bob Caldwell coached at various levels of hockey and has been recognized by Hockey Canada for his leadership in coaching development programs. Western Michigan will face DU several times each season in the NCHC starting next season.
The Colorado Springs Business Journal has an article detailing the revenue created by the Colorado College hockey program. Many of the figures discussed would be similar or in the ballpark of what DU's hockey program generates.
While the NHL strike lingers on, several former DU players have been sent down to the AHL to develop while the two sides negotiate a settlement. Jason Zucker was among a group of players sent to the AHL Houston Aeros.
