Want to lose some time to hockey history? Then be sure to check out this AWESOME site put together by Vintage Minnesota Hockey History (@VintageMNHockey). The project catalogues every jersey ever worn by every men's D-1 collegiate, amateur, and professional hockey team in Minnesota hisory.

This is all work funded and completed by Vintage MN Hockey, and I can't say enough about how awesome it is. Seriously, give it a look! The link above will take you to the Gophers section, but be sure to look at the other teams too.

Hat tip to Nate Wells (@gopherstate) for calling my attention to this fun article from USCHO that looks at the decision making, psychology, and tradition of selecting a "victory song" for post-game locker room celebrations.

Gophers Change Offseason Workouts - The Minnesota Daily

Nice writeup from The Daily. A sample:

Hey Gophers, I thought this may be of interest to some, because it can easily be done to replicate for the Gophers season (will just take some time). But it's a great tool to use in many different ways as a coach or a stats guy. It's not on the Level of our man Matt's Models, but it's something I did in my coaching life and what I was messing with throughout this year. So I put a blog post together and thought you guys might find it interesting on its merits (wrong team I know, more gopher homer takes :))
