Played 1999-2001, club president and part of the group that restarted the club after it faltered in the mid-90's. It was a humble beginning but Brian Luhrman took over after me and I'm so thrilled to see it thriving and strong today. Matching uniforms and everything! I'm now in NYC pursuing my career in music and still actively playing in net.
Played 1986-1987. Live in Glenview Illinois. I was one of the founding players along with Brian Farrell (listed above) and John Wiedeman (current radio voice of the Chicago Blackhawks). I was the original goalie back in 1986. The first year, we played with 1968 football jerseys donated by the Athletic Director. Hung up the pads years ago as the Jayhawks were my last organized team - Glad to see the program thriving.
One of the 4 founding fathers of the organ-i-zation in '86 here. Great memories of KU hockey. My senior year, we had no coach and had to play in St. Joe. I was coach, captain and club president. Glad to see the club has grown. I'd love to buy a KU hockey jersey...you guys need to sell those!
Currently live in Glencoe, IL, still playing hockey at Johnny's Icehouse in Chicago and coach my son's Squirt silver team in Winnetka, IL. Go Hawks!
Played from 2005-2007. Received my bachelor's of science in journalism. Bounced around newspapers, radio stations, and TV stations as a journalist. Now working as director of communications for Servi-Tech, Inc.

Great start by TJ in Game 1 facing 60+ shots. Game 2 difference maker was the loss of 7 skaters. Return of Skelnik game us a bit of jump in our forcheck, Wil played a strong 2-way game all weekend. Nick anchored another great defensive zone effort.
Sexton & Perry made great strides in defensive zone. Patrick and Adkins worked their butts off defending ISU cycle. Stoneburner and Greenberg created offensive opportunities. It was Austwick, Rakowski and Prokop that kept the score under double digits.
Defensive zone play continues to improve. 70% of oppostion goals came on special teams. Team discipline needs to improve in a hurry. TJ rebounded from tough game last week with one of his best starts of KU career.
MO is a tough season opener. Physical play translated into 4 KU injuries. The shortened bench also exposed our conditioning shortcomings. Peter was lone bright spot with much improved rebound control over last year.
Tough loss in Game 1 vs Wisconsin-Platte. KU ended up short on PP opportunities with marginal calls at horible spots. Just as KU was about to win the 2nd period, a half-wall scrum ended in another KU penalty forcing a 5-3 kill to start a tied 3rd period. Even after giving up the PP goal to start the 3rd, we battled hard until another marginal penalty with 2:30 left in the game to nailed the coffin shut. Loved the way our guys battled through adversity.

Texas Tech was unable to participate in Iowa State University's inaugral "Big 12 Hockey Tourney" leaving KU Hockey to play the ISU D1 club twice. Injuries kept 6 skaters out of the lineup and school commitments kept another 6 home as well. Perry also went down with injury in game 2. KU did have a great opportunity to work on breaking ISU's neutral zone trap and left wing lock.

Tough couple of weekends to start the season. Injuries include Kiegerl (ankle), Giballi (shoulder), Primovic (shoulder) & Greenberg (concussion) last weekend, then Bohn (shoulder) and Wollet (wrist) this weekend. Fortunately, the 2012-13 is a bit deeper than previous years. Also, we've cleaned up or defensive zone discipline and have had plenty of practise to work on penalty kill. Hopefully we will start getting guys off DL soon, and start stringing togethe 3 consective periods of hockey.
