(Updated) NCAA Hockey: A Few More Early Departures of Note

A trio of big-time college hockey players have signed entry-level professional contracts. These three are pretty big losses for their hockey teams.

First, I enjoyed watching Jonny Brodzinski play the last three season. I didn't get to see Brady Skjei play that much, except on TV. Adam Wilcox was a stone wall in the games UND played against the Gophers.

Monday Night Links

I never thought one of my articles would make the Minnesota Gophers SBNation blog, but it did.

The Inside Hockey Power Rankings are back. Zach Hawkins is now in the mix.

This season, we’re adding Zach Hawkins to the mix, you can follow him at @Siouxhockey33. Hawkins is the Minnesota Wild and college hockey blogger for Inside Hockey. If you’re not familiar with Taylor Seibel you can follow him on twitter at @taylorseibel. Seibel was a college hockey blogger for the now defunct The Hockey Writers-Combine.

Zane McIntyre is the goalie of the week in the NCHC.

Wisconsin sophomore goalie Joel Rumpel throws his stick makes save

Wisconsin sophomore goalie Joel Rumpel made this miraculous save on the Huskies forward Jimmy Murray at the 02:05 mark of the first period that prevented the Huskies from taking an early 2-1 lead. From there the Huskies never did get the lead and the Badgers would win the game 4-1.

Some thought that Rumpel should have actually gotten a penalty for throwing his goalie stick.

After the game the sophomore goalie was asked if he has thrown his stick at the puck. “It was a weird play,” Rumpel said. “I made the first save and then went to come across the crease and the stick got knocked out of my hands and it squirted wide,” Rumpel said. Yeah, okay.

Clarification on the Nick Bjugstad goal

I just got off the phone with the head of officials… According to Greg Shepherd Head of Officials for the WCHA, the Boston goalie Parker Milner’s momentum carried him into the net; he wasn’t touched by the Minnesota players so that’s why it was called a goal. If Milner had been touched, it would have been ruled no goal. Now you know the rest of the story

Nick Bjugstad goal and Kyle Rau hit

Someone tell me why the goal by Nick Bjugstad is goal is not a violation of the rules.
83.6 Disallowed Goals - An apparent goal shall not be allowed by the Referee in any of the following cases:

• Any action by the attacking team that propels the goaltender into the goal with the puck.
Also, I know Brad Shepherd is the official, but you have to watch this. How does Kyle Rau not get an elbowing penalty on this play…? Unless, I am not seeing this video right, I agree with the B.C. penalty but I think the refs missed a call again. Discussion, tell me what you think.
