At the buzzer...

The NHL trade deadline came and went at 3:00pm today. Former Knight, defenseman Willie Mitchell was traded to the Dallas Stars along with a 2nd round pick. The Minnesota Wild received defenseman Shawn Bell and Martin Skoula in return. This does leave open the tantalizing possibility that Mitchell could some day be paired with former Knight Matt Nickerson to form one of the nastiest D combinations ever.

Hockey's Future recently did an article on Clarkson rookie Shea Guthrie which is an excellent read.

It turns out former Clarkson standout Erik Cole was "lucky" that his injury wasn't any worse according to this article from the News & Observer. Cole is having a standout season for the Hurricanes and will hopefully be back by playoff time.

No Clarkson players were selected to represent the east in this year's inaugural NCAA Skills Challenge which will happen on April 7th at the Bradley Center in Wisconsin. Despite this fact, I've always been a big fan of the NHL Skills Challenge on All-Star weekend, and I think this sort of event gives players who don't make the Frozen Four their time to shine in the spotlight. There's plenty of guys on Clarkson's roster who could make an appearance in the future. Matt Moulson of Cornell was selected and will be a representative in the East / West competition.
