I haven't done a ton here on Gustavus Adolphus hockey in the past, but the Gusties do deserve some attention. The Gustavus men's team opens the season Friday night when it hosts defending national champion and No. 1-ranked St. Norbert. The Gusties were the only team to beat St. Norbert last season. That game and Saturday's game against Lake Forest will be played at All Seasons Arena in Mankato while the Don Roberts Ice Rink gets a facelift in St. Peter.
Meanwhile the Gustavus women's team is ranked No. 4 in the country and will open the season next week. Gusties senior Jessie Doig, meanwhile, will be blogging for the NCAA on the life and times of a college athlete. She is one of a select group chosen by the NCAA. Her blog, which she says will be updated twice a week, can be found here. I'll also post a permanent link to it in the sidebar.
