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.

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.
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 off his best starts of KU career.
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.
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.
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.
