Looking Toward The Weekend

Dick Baker has a great feature on Will Ortiz as part of his weekend preview.  I know I’ve mentioned this a few times but watching Will have a tremendous senior season has easily been one of the best parts of what has become a pretty good season.  His energy combined with his physical play is unmatched on the ice.  And I don’t think he’s done yet.  I’m guessing he has a few more game-changing goals up his sleeve for the last two months of the season.

The Collegian previews this weekend’s series with Paul Dainton talking about the spanking they took over break as a needed wake-up call.  They also have a sidebar focusing on special teams and the improved play of Dainton.

James Marcou remains on top of Inside Hockey’s Hobey Watch.


The LA Kings site has this story on Jon Quick and some of the in-season adjustments he has had to make.
