The Hartford Wolf Pack won both of their first two shootouts this season, and the man who scored the shootout-ending goals both times was a bit of an unlikely hero.
Rookie forward Steven Fogarty was chosen as the Wolf Pack’s shootout “anchorman”, sent out as the team’s third shooter, despite his having scored only one non-shootout goal, and both times he delivered, earning the Wolf Pack a pair of much-needed standings points.
According to Wolf Pack head coach Ken Gernander, Fogarty’s number being called in the shootout was as a result of acumen he had showed on the practice ice.
“It was something we had practiced after one day, Patty (Assistant coach/Assistant GM Pat Boller) had stayed out extra with the goalies,” Gernander said. “The goalies themselves wanted to work on the shootout, and oftentimes you take a younger kid to get them some shots, and he (Fogarty) was really good. So it was brought to our attention and we said, ‘Yeah, let’s go for it.’”
Fogarty himself was pleasantly surprised to be chosen in that big spot. Continue reading

HARTFORD, CT – Wins are now essential for the UConn Huskies as they enter the final month of the college hockey season. The goal is to get a bid for a home Hockey East playoff series.
The UConn Huskies gutted out a 3-1 win on Tuesday night over Brown in a game that seemed destined for overtime.
“We played a consistent game We gave a late powerplay goal. We took another, killed it off, and we remained mentally tough,” UConn head coach Mike Cavanaugh said. “Marco (Richter) made a nice rush late to win it for us.”
Richter, a freshman, was the hero who took a pass from Kyle Huson, then fought his way through several players and found space on the right wing. While on the rush, Richter was able to flip a shot off and over the shoulder Brown goalie Tim Ernst with 1:38 left in regulation.
“I was going through two guys,” Richter said. “I just wanted to get the puck deep and I got the puck back again and honestly, I was just trying to get it in somehow.”
For Richter it was his first collegiate goal and it turned out to be the game winner. Continue reading
