Stephen Halliday had a lot of options. He could have played in the Ontario Hockey League. He had enough college options that he didn’t feel comfortable listing them. So what finally led the top-end hockey prospect and No. 1 overall pick in the United States Hockey League Draft to commit to UND this week?
Stephen Halliday was selected No. 1 overall in the United States Hockey League draft this spring. That already puts him into impressive company.
UND’s game in October against rival Minnesota in Las Vegas is among the most coveted tickets in program history. The game sold out instantly and tickets on the secondary market are generally going between $500 and $600 per seat. The cheapest ticket currently on StubHub is $380, and that’s for a single. That will keep many fans from attending, but they’ll still be able to watch the game.
The late models were lined up, ready to go on the track for their feature race. But Joey Pederson wasn’t in his car. “I didn’t care if I missed my feature,” he said. The veteran driver from East Grand Forks had something more important to do on that particular night at River Cities Speedway.
Taylor Chorney joined the Washington Capitals in 2015. He spent three years with the organization, including five months this season. But in late February, he was put on waivers and claimed by the Columbus Blue Jackets. A month and a half later, the Washington Capitals began their run to the Stanley Cup. Chorney missed out on it.
T.J. Oshie said his plans with the Stanley Cup changed a couple of times. He ended up bringing the famed trophy to Warroad on Tuesday morning and flew back to the Twin Cities for events in the afternoon and evening. Oshie played prep hockey for three years in Warroad and currently lives in the Twin Cities.
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.
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.
WARROAD, Minn. -- T.J. Oshie carried the Stanley Cup off a private jet at Warroad Airport on Tuesday morning. 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.
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.
