I would have had this out sooner, but my computer was acting up. I guess you need to take a can of air to your computer every once in a while. I think we're okay now. We will see. I am in the process of finding a new computer so I will take suggestions if you have one.
A couple of things that I noticed this weekend. The freshman are starting to get it. All you have to do is look at the score sheet.
The story of the game was the play of the fourth line. Coach Berry put Shane Gersich, Coltyn Sanderson, and Chris Wilkie on the fourth line and they showed a lot of chemistry together. That line had a banner night on the score sheet (4g-3a—7pts).
This past weekend, Gersich has (1g-1a—2pts), Wilkie (2g-2a—4pts). On Friday night, Haden Shaw made two really nice plays that ended up in the back of net. This lead to Shaw having s a solid night on the score sheet (0g-2a—2pts). Christian Wolanin who was scratched on Friday night, replaced Shaw on Saturday night and also made a contribution on the score sheet (0g-2a—2pts).

Good news for incoming UND forward Austin Poganski, as he was added to the USA Hockey World Junior evaluation camp roster. Fellow incoming UND freshman forward Nick Schmaltz is also on the roster for the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp, too.
Adam Kimelman, NHL.com -- Goaltender Evan Cowley and forwards Ryan Hitchcock and Austin Poganski have been added to the roster that will take part in the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp next week in Lake Placid, N.Y., USA Hockey announced Tuesday. They will replace goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic and forwards Adam Erne and Cole Cassels.
The camp will run Aug. 2-9, and serves as one of the first steps for the United States in building the team that will compete at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship in Toronto and Montreal. Rockford IceHogs assistant coach Mark Osiecki will coach the team.
Poganski, a 2014 fourth-round pick (No. 110) of the St. Louis Blues, had 19 goals and 31 points in 55 games with the Tri-City Storm of the United States Hockey League last season; he is committed to the University of North Dakota for the fall.

Interesting turn of events, as they say you're innocent until proven guilty. Fighting Sioux junior forward was found not guilty in his DWI case by a jurry of his peers.
A jury of six Grand Forks County residents found UND hockey player Matt Frattin not guilty of drunk driving today.Here is the link to Frattin's Court Case [link]
The trial began this morning and ended this afternoon, with jurors returning a verdict after less than 30 minutes of deliberation, prosecutor Jason McCarthy said.
Campus police pulled over Frattin, a junior forward, in the early morning hours of Aug. 19. According to police, Lt. Tracy Meidinger smelled alcohol on Frattin’s breath and a test at the station put his blood-alcohol level at .12 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent.
McCarthy said Frattin passed some of the sobriety tests, but failed others. “This was a closer one,” McCarthy said.
Meidinger testified for the prosecution; the defense did not call any witnesses. Among the evidence the prosecution presented was a video showing Frattin that night.
Frattin was kicked off the team following his arrest, which was his second run-in with police that summer. He rejoined the team and began playing again in January.
In July, campus police arrested Frattin and Joe Finley, a player who graduated in the spring of 2009, for throwing objects into a street. In that case, Frattin pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct.
Messages left for Frattin’s attorney were not returned this afternoon
