Looking down on a black ice hockey puck plowing through snow and stopping on the edge of the “Goal Line” of the goal crease. The puck must cross completely over the red line to count as a goal.

EAGLE RIVER’S VERY OWN BRIAN SWANSON, A FORMER COLORADO COLLEGE AND ALASKA ACES STANDOUT, WAS NAMED THIS WEEK TO THE WCHA’S ALL-1990’S TEAM BY THE LEAGUE.

THE WCHA, IN THEIR FINAL SEASON OF EXISTENCE, IS CELEBRATING THEIR LONG AND STORIED HISTORY BY NAMING ALL-DECADE TEAMS.

SWANSON STARRED FOR COLORADO COLLEGE AS THE WCHA ROOKIE OF THE YEAR FOR 1995-96, WAS A TWO-TIME LEAGUE SCORING CHAMP, A TWO-TIME ALL-AMERICAN, 4 TIME ALL-WCHA CHOICE, AND WAS A MEMBER OF THE WCHA ALL-STAR TEAM THAT COMPETED IN SWITZERLAND IN 1998. IN 2002, SWANSON WAS NAMED ONE TO THE WCHA’S TOP 50 PLAYERS IN 50 YEARS LIST.

SWANSON WENT ON TO PLAY IN THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE FOR THE EDMONTON OILERS AND ATLANTA THRASHERS, AND FINISHED HIS CAREER WITH TWO YEARS IN GLACIER BLUE IN ANCHORAGE.

 

CURRENT TULSA OILERS AND FORMER ALASKA ACES FORWARD DANNY MOYNIHAN, SKATING NOW FOR FORMER ACES AND CURRENT OILERS HEAD COACH ROBB MURRAY, WAS NAMED THE ECHL’S PLAYER OF THE WEEK AFTER SCORING 2 GOALS WITH 5 ASSISTS AND A PLUS-6 IN THREE GAMES AT RAPID CITY LAST WEEK.
