    Murdoch and Raushel Return from Italy

    It was a long three weeks, but finally Coach Al Murdoch and Junior Allen Raushel have returned from the World University Games after a decent showing, finishing in 8th place.

    Now 8th place doesn't sound too great, but when you consider that Team USA's pool included both the Gold Medal (Canada) and Silver Medal (Russia) winners, the US put up one heck of a fight.

    The US recorded a win over Korea (5-2), but lost to Canada (5-0), Russia (5-2 including an empty net goal), and Slovakia (3-2). Those three teams were the last 3 winners of the Winter World University games. Canada won this year, Russia in 2005, and Slovakia in 2003. Stiff competition, to say the least. And the US hung with them the whole way. All of those games, according to reports from European news outlets, and Coach Murdoch's personal account could have ended up a lot differently if the puck bounced the team's way a little more.

    We'll have Allen Raushel's reaction to his time in Italy up sometime this week. They have a ton of great stories about representing their country and we can't wait to share them with you!

    The best news is that both return as the team begins preparations for the Conference and National Tournaments. The Cyclones next home game will be Friday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 PM against the #9 ranked Kent State Golden Flashes.

    Next week the Cyclones are on the road to play St. Louis in a CSCHL conference match up. We'll have all of the play by play and analysis on our live webcast on cyclonehockey.com!
