Two New Recruits plus Stanley's Cup
Clarkson has announced two new recruits for the 2008 season. Michael Kosziwka joins the team out of the OPJHL where he racked up 62 points, 28 goals and 34 assists. He scored 17 goals on the PP as well. He also had 72 PIM, meaning we might have another guy out there who is willing to play physical to keep the opposing team in-line when they're being stupid. In addition, Lauri Tuohimaa, a foward from Finland joins to Golden Knights. Haven't been able to pull any stats on Lauri, but he's already drawing the inevitable comparison's to Max Kolu, which certainly isn't a bad thing. A very solid recruiting class this year.
In other news, hockey iss still being played in some places, for this really excellent trophy too. Well a year back we all got very excited for one Erik Cole who hoisted this shiny piece of metal last year with the Carolina Hurricanes. But the Clarkson fanbase has been awfully quiet despite the fact that not one, but TWO former Golden Knights are fighting for the cup with the Anaheim Ducks as they face the Ottawa Senators. Todd Marchant, who played with the Golden Knights from 1991-1993 and Kent Huskins who was a member from 1997-2001 are trying to make it three Clarkson players in the last two years to lift the trophy. Keep an eye out for them rhtough the playoffs.
