Quick thing I wrote about UVM's sudden European pipeline. Trying to get back into writing regularly again. Not really much I haven't already said here, but it's there.

Woodcroft named an assistant coach for Tre Kronor at the Olympics

Awesome opportunity. But am I to interpret that (unlike his coaching work in the World Juniors) he'll actually be in Beijing with the team? Curious as to how early he'll be joining the squad. That could end up being a pretty sizeable chunk of time away from UVM (not that I think we'll be playing a lot of high-leverage games in February).

Czechs currently lead Denmark 3-1

UVM announcing some staff updates today.

Pat Dooley joins as equipment manager from Muskegon (USHL)
Max Gavin joins as Director of Hockey Ops from Adrian (D-III)
Drew Michals as Volunteer Assistant/Goalie Coach from Franklin Pierce (D-II)

And Patrick Sharp as a coaching advisor, which I'd be more excited for if not for the ongoing 2010 Blackhawks situation considering UVM is going through the exact same thing with the MBB program. Probably unfair to Pat, but it is what it is.

I'm assuming the Sharp role is like what Babcock did last year, being able to advise virtually/from afar with maybe occasionally swinging through Burlington.

I'm glad to see him on board because (as an admitted outsider) Sharp always seemed to be the highest profile alum who didn't really feel connected to this program. On a surface level, anyway. He was only here 2 years...2 pretty terrible years in terms of on-ice team performance. It didn't ever feel like UVM was an integral part of his story, and that he succeeded in spite of his time here, not necessarily because of it (you could probably draw some emerging parallels to Ross Colton). So to see him come back as an alum and invest his time in this program is great for the team, and great for Woodcroft when it comes to selling this team, because even if his time in BTV wasn't really successful, he's the kind of post-Marty success story the UVM staff should promote.
