GRAND FORKS — Last season, National Collegiate Hockey Conference referee Dan Dreger was hit by a puck above his lip, causing significant damage that required several hospital visits. Dreger had four permanent plates installed in his face, two temporary brackets put in his jaw, had his jaw wired shut for two weeks, had eight screws placed in his mouth and 36 stitches.
WINNIPEG—Tucker Poolman played 24 regular-season and two playoff games for the Winnipeg Jets during his first professional season. The East Grand Forks (Minn.) Senior High graduate did enough to convince the Jets that he'll soon be in the NHL to stay. The Winnipeg Jets signed Poolman to a three-year deal worth a total of $2.325 million on Tuesday. The contract is a one-way deal, which means Poolman will get paid the same whether he's in the NHL or American Hockey League. That's a sign that the Jets expect Poolman to play the next three seasons with the big club.
WARROAD, Minn.—Henry Boucha couldn't resist. After watching T.J. Oshie, his second cousin and Warroad's first Stanley Cup champion, bring the prized trophy back to the northwest Minnesota town Tuesday morning, the legendary Warrior player had to get in a jab at rival Roseau. "As the emcee Jess Myers said, it's the second time the Cup has been here," Boucha said. "When Buff (Dustin Byfuglien) brought it to Roseau, they had to land the plane in Warroad. That's got to be a teasing point for the Roseau Rams there."
WARROAD, Minn.—T.J. Oshie carried the Stanley Cup off a private jet at Warroad Airport on Tuesday morning, July 24. Oshie climbed in the back of a 1933 Lincoln convertible with his wife, Lauren, and their two young daughters, Lyla and Leni. The car was once used by former U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt while campaigning in Michigan. For this town, it may as well have been a presidential visit. And for this town, the only person working in Washington, D.C., who can bring this kind of fanfare is Oshie.
WARROAD, Minn.—It's not easy to claim hockey firsts in Warroad. The town has long produced hockey stars. It has had state champion boys teams and state champion girls teams. It has had Mr. Hockey and Ms. Hockey winners. It has sent players to U.S. National Teams. Four have come back with Olympic gold medals. It has sent players to the NHL. But until Tuesday, July 24, nobody had brought the Stanley Cup back to the town nicknamed Hockeytown USA.
WARROAD, Minn. -- The Stanley Cup is headed to Warroad. T.J. Oshie said Thursday that he will bring the Stanley Cup to the northern Minnesota town where he played high school hockey on July 24 -- his personal designated day with the famed trophy. Members of the Stanley Cup-winning team each get one day with the trophy to do nearly whatever they want. Oshie won the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals last month. There haven't been any details released on a public showing in Warroad yet.
GRAND FORKS—T.J. Oshie will have his day with the Stanley Cup on July 24. He's expected to bring it back to the area, but exact details are not yet available and it is unclear whether there will be enough time for a public event to go along with it. Oshie, who played high school hockey at Warroad and college hockey at the University of North Dakota, won the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals last month. Each player on the winning team is designated one day with the Stanley Cup.
GRAND FORKS—Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson's dazzling move in the Olympic gold-medal game shootout, which lifted the Americans to their first women's hockey gold medal in 20 years, has the Grand Forks native in the mix for an ESPY Award. Lamoureux-Davidson is one of four finalists for the ESPY Award as the best female Olympian. The other finalists are snowboarders Jamie Anderson and Chloe Kim and skier Mikaela Shiffrin. The ESPYs will be handed out July 18 in Los Angeles.
GRAND FORKS -- Eleven former members of the now-eliminated University of North Dakota women’s hockey program filed a class-action lawsuit against the North Dakota University System in U.S. District Court on Tuesday, June 12.
GRAND FORKS — Cary Eades was starting a 15-hour bus ride home from Youngstown, Ohio. The Clark Cup was by his side, having just led the Fargo Force to the United States Hockey League championship, when he received a text. It was from T.J. Oshie. Oshie and the Washington Capitals lost that night to the Tampa Bay Lightning to fall behind 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. But Oshie made sure to congratulate Eades, who coached him at Warroad High and again at UND, on winning the Clark Cup.
