Husky Hockey will begin its preseason play tomorrow night against the University of Manitoba at 7:07 PM at the National Hockey Center. In a previous blog I wrote about three reasons why I was excited about this addition to our preseason lineup. The reasons are as followed:
- Additional game, additional practice, additional chance to see SCSU hockey
- Earlier start to the season (not every WCHA team will be playing this weekend)
- UND will be playing Manitoba on Sunday night
For a great look into the entire season please check out The Hockey Hair All's "Husky hockey season preview".

Despite a rough (to say it nicely) preseason for the Minnesota Wild, there has been at least one bright spot... SCSU alum Matt Cullen. According to the Star Tribune:
"The chemistry developing between center Cullen and winger Martin Havlat is one of the positives to come out of training camp. The two, paired for a third time Thursday night, have quickly meshed."You can read more about Cullen and playing for the "hometown team" in a new article title "The Pressure Cooker Of...Minnesota" over at Wild.com
