  1. Good luck Kevin and congrats. Your coverage of Bulldog hockey will be greatly missed.

  2. Thanks so much for all of the good wishes. The News Tribune hasn’t officially decided on coverage assignments for the 2013-14 school year, but be assured that UMD hockey is a priority and everything you need to know about the Bulldogs will be in the DNT and on our web site. I’ll be following along with everyone else

  3. Somebody has to take it on. Schlossman in GF can’t be left alone :)
    Enjoy your retirement!!

  4. Thank you Kevin for your years of excellent coverage of UMD Hockey and college hockey as a whole. You are leaving some pretty large shoes to fill! Enjoy retirement.

  5. congratulations on your retirement Kevin. I will miss this blog. It has been and excellent source of info especially when following former players as they continued their playing days after UMD. Hockey, specifically college hockey, is lucky to have people like yourself who promote the sport. Hopefully many others will follow in your shoes. Take care and enjoy your next act!
