Kangas gets season high 37 saves in 4-4 tie

Atlanta Thrashers prospect Alex Kangas recorded a season high 37 saves but also gave up four goals in a 4-4 tie game between the University of Wisconsin Badgers and the University of Minnesota Gophers. Kangas, a freshman, plays goal for the Gophers.

Andrew Kozek, meanwhile, was named offensive player of the week by the WCHA, according to Dave Berger's Sioux Sports blog. Kozek, a junior, plays for the University of .North Dakota Fighting Sioux. [Edit: the earlier version of this entry had listed the Fighting Sioux as from the University of South Dakota. I regret the error. Thanks Dave.]

Nice blog, a lot of great stuff here.

Kozek has displayed an NHL-quality wrist shot and has elevated his game since his ascent to the top line along with Blues #1 pick T.J. Oshie and the NCAA's reigning Hobey Baker winner, Ryan Duncan.

I have but one correction to offer: the name of our proud university, home of 7 NCAA hockey championships, is the University of NORTH Dakota. And, yes, it does matter. :)
