Minnesota-Duluth head men’s hockey coach Scott Sandelin played on the 1984 Bulldogs team that played for its only NCAA hockey title. The team lost to Bowling Green in a quadruple overtime loss. He had been agonizing ever since that game because playing for a college title in hockey doesn’t happen very oftern for schools like Minnesota-Duluth.

Sandelin got redemption last weekend as the Bulldogs, playing only 2 1/2 hours from their campus in the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, beat nine-time NCAA hockey champion Michigan 3-2 in overtime sending the crowd of 19,222 home happy.

UMD won the game when Kyle Schmidt slipped a wrist shot past Wolverines goaltender Shawn Hunwick at 3:22 of sudden death overtime.

The Bulldogs, who finish the season at 26-10-6, are used to playing in overtime. They led all of college hockey in overtime games going 6-2-6.

The Wolverines, coached by former NHL star Gordon “Red” Berenson, ends the season at 29-11-4, hurt themselves with 10 penalties and allowed one power-play goal.

Columbus Crew sends another fan favorite packing: Steven Lenhart to San Jose

The Columbus Crew, who have some of the most loyal fans in Major League Soccer, have been testing that loyalty this entire off-season.

Once again, the team has gotten rid of a fan favorite in favor of an untested draft choice.

The Crew on Thursday traded forward Steven Lenhart to the San Diego Earthquakes for a first-round SuperDraft pick and allocation money.

The trade helped the Crew acquire Michigan scorer Justin Meram, a prolific scorer who garnered 12 goals in the Wolverines’ final nine games last season.

The key statement about Meram, is he scored those goals in college for Michigan. On the pro level he’d be lucky if he gets to play more less score 12 goals or touch the ball 12 times.

Lenhart was respected around the league because he is a hard-working, tireless, big-bodied menace who is tall at 6’2 and good around the goal.

San Jose offered the Crew the number 15 pick and allocation money of $75,000.
