One of the best parts of the Frozen Four is for us media types is seeing old friends from the college hockey world and meeting some new ones.
Neil Koepke of the Lansing State Journal is not here, ending a streak of what I’m told is a little more than 30 consecutive Frozen Fours, which is incredible. So, tip of the cap to Neil for quite an amazing run.
One Frozen Four newbie is Guy Flaming, who does a wonderful job covering college hockey for The Pipeline Show in Edmonton. All of the college hockey guys had a good time finally putting a face to the name. If you haven’t seen The Pipeline Show’s coverage yet, check it out on the website and the blog.
After practice today, I went for a burger with the Herald team and Matt Schill and Derek Koenen of the UND staff. Then, we made our way to the annual media party at Tom Reid’s. Those in attendance included staff from all three national college hockey sites and broadcasters Dan Parkhurst, Frank Mazzocco and Barry Melrose.
There was plenty of work to be done in the afternoon, though. By the time we arrived at the Xcel Center on Wednesday, the media room was already packed with people. There weren’t many spots left to set up shop. There are tons of stories from papers all over the country and I can’t link them all today.
The Herald will have some info in a special section, so you can pick that up if you see it around town. If you don’t live in the area and really want it, you can call 701-780-1100 and ask for circulation or you can email email@example.com. As for our daily coverage:
