NCAA Hockey in Texas?

1/20/17
By Rick Gosselin Sportsradio 1310

ALLEN, TX -- Hockey has been warming up to the South.

The Stars moved to Dallas in 1993 and became the first Sun Belt team to win a Stanley Cup in 1999. The Tampa Bay Lightning became the second in 2004. The Allen Americans have won four consecutive minor league championships, two in the Central Hockey League and two in the ECHL.

There are 7,300 kids playing hockey in Dallas this winter, either house or travel. In 2013, a Dallas kid, Seth Jones, became the fourth overall selection of the NHL draft. Two other Dallas products, Chris Brown and Stefan Noesen, have skated in the NHL since then.

Alabama-Huntsville became a member of an NCAA Division I hockey conference in 1998 and Arizona State is in its inaugural season of NCAA hockey this winter. There isn't a college hockey team in Florida, but Tampa has hosted the NCAA Frozen Four twice in the last five years.

So I asked Stars president Jim Lites the other day if there was any chance our city would put in a bid for a future Frozen Four at American Airlines Center. I've been to several of them. It's a great event. It's what the Final Four was before its discovery by corporate America in the 1980s. But Lites was ice cold to the suggestion.

"It's a prestige event," Lites said, "but it's a calendar issue for us. We have two professional teams [Mavericks and Stars] here. This building in jammed in March."

So, no.

Then I called Sean Boyle, who coaches the club hockey team at Texas A&M, and asked him if he could envision a school in this state competing at the NCAA Division I level in hockey in the next five to 10 years.

"Yes, I could," Boyle said, "but there would have to be someone like Terry Pegula up at Penn State drop a ton of money on a new arena."

Aggies Take 2nd in MLK Tournament...

1/16/17
By Aggie Hockey Team News

The extended holiday weekend brought some great hockey to the Brazos Valley, as six teams competed during the MLK Tournament at Spirit Ice Arena in College Station. The Aggies faced the University of Washington Huskies in their first game on Friday night. The Aggies jumped out to a 4-0 lead, but the Huskies clawed their way back into the game with the help of some Aggie penalties and a strong team effort in the third period completing the comeback win of 6-5 over the Aggies.

Saturday night the Aggies faced-off against the Loyola Marymount Lions and rebounded with a decisive victory by a score of 8-2 over the Lions.

Sunday's game would determine the second place team in the tournament with both the Aggies and Matadors having identical points in the tournament standings. Folks, I have been watching the Aggies play now for some 15 years and I believe this game was the best of all I have seen....It had everything, great goaltending, team strategy, penalty shot, fights, physical play, and good puck movement...After the hard-fought game, the Aggies proved to be the better team, beating the Cal-State University at Northridge Matadors by a score of 2-1.

The Aggies play the next couple of games against the University of Texas Longhorns, in Allen on January 21 @ 4:00 PM and College Station on February 3 @ 7:30 PM.
