Bob Gassoff doing what Bob Gassoff does best
Former Wolverine tough guy Bob Gassoff was the alumni guest on The Red Berenson Show. You can listen to his segment here (it’s “The Red Berenson Show 3rd Period” if it doesn’t load right to it). The hosts naturally had to bring up the above incident at Munn Ice Arena, which is probably the moment everyone remembers most from Gasser’s career. You talk about guys who played the enforcer role, he was it.

Gassoff talks not only about his Michigan career, but his Navy SEALs career and how he almost joined them before opting for Michigan and how 9/11 changed him. Definitely check it out if you got 10 minutes to spare.

TROUBA NAMED TO ALL-ROOKIE TEAM

No surprise as freshman defenseman Jacob Trouba was named to the CCHA All-Rookie Team.  Trouba led all CCHA blue liners in goals (7) and points (18) in conference play.

The bigger surprise came as freshman forward Boo Nieves was snubbed and only given an Honorable Mention.  Nieves is second in conference rookie scoring with 22 points on eight goals and 14 assists.  Despite the Wolverines struggles, Nieves really blossomed as the season progressed and is now centering one of the top two lines as U-M tries to pull off another miracle rally in the playoffs.

The three forwards selected to the All-Rookie Team were Miami’s Riley Barber (12-18-30 points), Mario Lucia of Notre Dame (12-9-21 points), and Tyler Morley of Alaska (8-7-15  points).

The All-Rookie Team list can be seen here.
