Servite’s David Mitzner voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week

Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Athlete: David Mitzner School: Servite Sport: Soccer Noteworthy: The goalkeeper had eight saves as the Friars defeated Cathedral of Los Angeles on penalty kicks 3-2 in a CIF-SS Division 1 semifinal. Mitzner, who signed with Portland, made three stops in penalty kicks. “He could have been nervous and buckled under pressure,” said Servite coach Jon Spencer, “but he rose to the occasion like we knew he would.” Mitzner (6-3, 180) has a 3.6 grade-point ave...

The Experience of Life Changing God Moments

It was a brisk and ordinary November afternoon at Juan Diego Friary when I first interviewed Fr. Chris Kerstiens. The leaves, which were beginning to change color, were swaying gently in the wind providing a soothing background hum. We opted to sit in the courtyard patio which offered an opportunity for our interview to be uninterrupted by the usual friendly friar activity surrounding us. Our interview started like any other as Fr. Chris spoke about his passion- ministering to the incarcerated....

Jon Gillies will have to lead Providence in order to upset Boston University tonight | Matt Dewkett It’s been a tumultuous decade in college hockey, to say the least.

Beauts’ Cass MacPherson Is an ‘Iron Woman’

From her final year playing junior with the Oakville Hornets to her current rookie season for the Buffalo Beauts, center Cassidy MacPherson has only missed a single game. One of the youngest members of the 2019-20 Beauts, MacPherson recently turned 22 years old on Sept. 23. After four strong seasons of NCAA play for Providence College, she is now centering one of the top forward lines in women’s pro hockey. A quieter, soft-spoken person, MacPherson typically shies away from any limelight. Th...

Sabres’ Botterill Inks Bryson to ELC

Defenseman Jacob Bryson didn’t win the NCAA National Championship, but he still has reason to celebrate. The junior, who captained the Friars of Providence College, just signed a three-year, entry-level contract (ELC) with the Buffalo Sabres that will begin with the 2019-20 season. The blueliner was the Sabres fourth-round selection (99th overall) at the 2017 NHL Draft.

2019 Frozen Four: Minnesota Duluth Advances to Third Straight Title Game

BUFFALO – The only difference over the last three years for Minnesota Duluth has been a few different players suiting up every night. Other than that, their formula of relentless defense and outstanding goaltending has carried them far. And this year, it has carried them to a third straight national championship game appearance. Billy Exell had a rare goal to break a third-period tie and give the Bulldogs the lead for good, then a pair of late insurance empty-net goals put the Providence F...

Loyalty Pays Off for Makar, UMass in Reaching Frozen Four

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Once Cale Makar committed to playing hockey at Massachusetts, nothing was going to change the defenceman’s mind. Loyal to UMass Makar stuck by his decision despite a coaching change, which led to him rejecting offers to play at higher-profile schools. He then turned down a chance to represent Canada at the Winter Olympics last year because Makar didn’t want to miss out on his freshman season. And not even the lure of making the jump to the NHL — Colorado drafted him with ...

As we near the end of the college hockey season, it’s the time of year when attention begins to turn to some of the top undrafted prospects in college hockey.

Flames’ Jankowski Carves Out Key Niche

Professional sports can be a “what have you done for me lately” type of business, particularly when it’s such a results-oriented world.

Calgary Flames center Mark Jankowski (Candice Ward-USA TODAY Sports) For the Calgary Flames, patience has been the watch-word in regards to 2012 first round pick Mark Jankowski. Six seasons ...

Despite a strong Q3 earnings report, Square’s Q4 forecast disappoints investors

Wild’s Success Runs Through the Iowa Pipeline

If the Minnesota Wild has a remote chance of winning the Stanley Cup in the near future, the development of its farm system in Iowa will be a major factor. Minnesota began its affiliation with the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League for the 2013-14 season. Since then, Iowa has missed the playoffs for the past five seasons. They were at the bottom of the standings in their first three seasons but came up just short of making the playoffs in the last two. On the other hand, Minnesota has faile...

Rome's Awe-Inspiring Historic Libraries

The money a society devotes to shared public resources was once a sign of its greatness.

Flames Jankowski: Family Hockey Roots Run Deep

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to Calgary Flames center Mark Jankowski. The Flames’ #77 is not the first ‘Janko’ to don an NHL sweater nor will he be the last (or so it seems). His family ties to the sport have spanned generations and have influenced his rise up the ranks. On July 25, the Flames signed the 23-year-old to a two-year, $3.35 million deal which carries an annual cap hit of close to $1.675 million per season. Jankowski was slotted in as a third-line center in his r...
