Garrett Roe...The Hat Trick of Weekly Accolades

Garrett Roe's Awesome Weekend!
Senior Garrett Roe has been a phenomenal player during his time at St. Cloud State. Don't believe me? Take a look at some All-Time Ranking stats below:
  • Assists: 1st (111)
  • Shots on goal: 1st (463)
  • Shots per game: 1st (3.05)
  • Assists per game: 2nd (0.73)
  • Points: 3rd (176)
  • Points per game: 4th (1.16)
  • Game-winning goals: t-4th (11)
  • Power-play goals: t-4th (26)
  • Goals: 7th (65)
  • Games played: 9th (152)
I could go on, but I won't. At the beginning of the season Garrett Roe was being discussed as a probable Hobey Baker candidate as one of the top players in the WCHA and in Division I collegiate hockey. Unfortunately, Roe and the rest of the Huskies had a real late start to their season and were vastly under-performing. However, as of late, Roe and the Huskies have been doing MUCH better. Garrett Roe demonstrated this weekend why he is still one of the best college hockey players around. Roe scored a total of four goals this past weekend against Wisconsin. Two goals and the game winner on Friday (2/25) and two more goals and the game winner on Saturday (2/26). His play was enough to earn him several weekly player awards. This week Garrett Roe is the Inside College Hockey Player of the Week, the WCHA Offensive Player of the Week, and the Center Ice Club Player of the Week. You can read more about them below:
From Coach Bob Motzko:
"If we’re going to make any noise in the playoffs, we need Garrett Roe scoring. We know what he can do."
Congratulations to senior Garrett Roe!

Other Stuff
"St. Cloud State gets home ice if: they sweep Denver and UW gets exactly three points, OR they sweep Denver, UW gets 0, 1, or 4 points, Minnesota gets 0 points, and St. Cloud State’s final goal differential in league play (goals for minus goals against) is greater than Minnesota’s."
"St. Cloud State is the one team BSU can affect if it loses its TUC status. The Huskies are 3–1 against the Beavers this season with a .4677 winning percentage against TUCs and that would drop to .4259. 
The reality is all signs point to BSU’s RPI falling below .5000. The Beavers would likely have to get, at least, a split with Minnesota and then win its playoff series to remain a TUC.
Five of SCSU’s comparison wins (Dartmouth, Western Michigan, Wisconsin, Ferris State and Alaska) rely heavily on winning percentage vs. TUCs and the Huskies will likely lose all five without their record against BSU.
Three or four points for SCSU this weekend in Denver could help turn some comparisons and move the Huskies up the PWR, but BSU’s imminent falling out of the TUCs would bring SCSU right back down. A Denver sweep would most likely get the Pioneers into the top four in the PWR."
  • However, Coach Motzko has said on numerous occassions that because of our poor play early in the season, the Huskies are not looking at the numbers or the computers this year. They just know they have to win every game they can. Period.
  • USCHO.com also did an article on the hiring of "Gino" Gasparini. Check it out here, "St. Cloud State hires Gasparini as special advisor"
And finally, a video I came across today about the extrordinary work that Husky Productions does to broadcast Husky games. Thanks Husky Productions!

Go Huskies!
