Looking back
Matt Gilroy, captain of the 2009 National Championship team and winner of that season's Hobey Baker Award, has been named to the roster of Team USA for the IIHF World Championships to be played in Germany next month.
Brandon Yip scored his first NHL playoff goal and added an assist in the Avalanche's 6-5 loss to San Jose, tying the first round series at one apiece.

Looking ahead

2010 recruits Adam Clendening and Matt Nieto each assisted on a goal in Team USA's 5-0 shutout of Canada in the preliminary round of the World U18 Championships being played in Belarus. Clendening leads Team USA in scoring with 1-3-4 after three games. Team USA's final preliminary round game, against the host team Belarus, is now under way. We'll report on the outcome later today. Quarterfinal play begins in Minsk on Tuesday. Both Clendening and Nieto played for the gold-medal winning U.S. squad in last year's tournament.

2010 recruit Sahir Gill assisted on two goals as BCHL champion Vernon Vipers edged their AJHL counterparts Spruce Grove, 3-2, in Doyle Cup competition. Series is tied at 1-1.

2011 recruit Cason Hohmann's season ended last week as Cedar Rapids was eliminated in the first round of USHL playoffs. Hohmann scored two goals in the five-game series with Indiana, including one game-winner. During the regular season, Hohmann scored nine goals and 27 assists in 58 games for the Roughriders.
