  • Repairing the Family

Hockey 101 gives hockey basics

Members of the hockey team Friday let listeners in on a thing or two about the number one sport north of the border.

In a Club Canada sponsored event, “Hockey 101,” team members Mike Nedsill, freshman, and Ryan Barnett, junior, along with the hockey team’s Volunteer Assistant Coach Mike Tarantino and Head Coach Scott Paluch demonstrated equipment and answered questions about the sport to a crowd before Friday’s Bowling Green’s romp over Notre Dame.

The event was the Club’s first major event of the semester.

Everything from superstitions players do before the game, to the differences between figure and hockey skates, were topics of discussion.

Some superstitions BG’s players follow include putting their uniform on the left side first. Others nap, sing songs or eat DiBennedetto’s before the game.

For Keith Vandenbroek, a graduate assistant in the Canadian Studies department, Friday’s event before the game gave participants something to chew on.

“I think it’s good that students are informed about Canadian culture and I think that hockey is a good thing watch,” he said. “I think that students should come out and support BG athletics all around.”
