News & Notes From Around PioNation

Turns out the Joe Colbourne not only had a couple of torn ligaments in his wrist, but also a broken bone that doctors discovered during surgery.  The broken wrist bone grew back together, but needed to be shaved down during the medical procedure.  It certainly helps explain his drop in production in the 2nd half of the AHL season.

Too bad about Wade Bennett - did he ever play in non-exhibition game for DU or just exhibition?

Before Dave Carle, did DU ever use Student Assistant Coaches? Hearing about Wade, it doesn't have quite the same feel-good/prodigal aura that it did with Dave......but I guess it's cool for him. And that's not a token job either; I hear they really put David to work in a lot of different ways, not just on game nights. And hell, look where Dave is now - being paid to coach a hockey team.... so that's quite a path he laid down for guys like Wade to follow. Lot's of opportunity out there, if you apply yourself and work hard.
