There’s not too much going on in the world of UMass hockey these days, but here are a few links and stories that UMass fans may find interesting.

San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson was specifically asked about Justin Braun and his role with the Sharks going forward and had some good things to say.

Casey Wellman and the Houston Aeros are tied with the Binghamton Senators at 1 game apiece in the AHL Finals.  Wellman has one goal so far in the series.

Alex Kerfoot, a ‘94 who is being recruited by the UMass coaching staff, will play next season for the Coquitlam Express of the BCHL.

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli is actually going for his second cup of season.  Shane Walsh and the Dubuque Fighting Saints, of which Chiarelli is a part owner, helped get him his first with the USHL’s Clark Cup.

Less than two weeks remain until the Pond Club Golf Outing.  There’s still plenty of time to sign up to play.  If you don’t or can’t play, you can always sponsor the tournament personally or through your business (or blog!) and still attend the cookout afterward and socialize with those associated with the hockey program.  Click on the image to the right for more information.  See you there!

The UMass community is remembering Bob Paquette after he passed away over the weekend.  A UMass alum, Bob built his radio career in the valley and will remembered by many as the host of Morning Edition on WFCR public radio.  He also was very active around UMass, from speaking at commencement to doing PA duties at hockey during those early triangle-era seasons.
