Again, it's been a while since I've updated the thread. With the holidays, I haven't missed much...

MSU
MSU has only played one series since I last updated. It was the weekend of December 13th, when ASU visited East Lansing. ASU won the first game 4-3 and MSU won the second games 1-0 in OT. None of the Flames prospects had any points in either game. Mattson did get to play in both games that weekend, which is the first time he has played both games in a two-game series since the end of January, last season.

The Spartans return to action tomorrow afternoon, when they face Michigan Tech in the first game of the Great Lakes Invitational tournament at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. They will also play on Tuesday against either Michigan or Ferris State, depending on who wins tomorrow's games (winner of Game 1 plays the winner of Game 2 and the losers of the first two games play each other too).

DENVER
Denver has also had a quiet couple of weeks over the holidays.

Their last games were the weekend of December 13th, when the played a home-and-home series against Colorado College. The Pioneers won both games, 3-0 and 3-1. Pettersen had 1G/1A in the 3-0 victory and 1A in the 3-1 game.

In 18 games played, Pettersen has 3G/13A for 16 total points. He leads Denver in both assists and points at the Christmas break.

The Pioneers return to action next weekend when UMass visits Denver.

ASU
The Sun Devils have been the most-active team in the NCAA over the holidays. They likely wish they would have taken the time off.

As mentioned above, they visited MSU two weekends ago and split the series with a 4-3 win and a 1-0 OT loss.

Last weekend, they took a trip to Nebraska-Omaha. Again, they split the series, winning 5-4 on Saturday and losing 8-4 on Sunday.

This weekend, they took a trip to Southern California to play Harvard at the Ducks' practice rink in Irvine, CA. They lost 4-1 on Saturday and tied today 4-4 (they lost in 3-on-3 OT -- but the NCAA doesn't count that, so it goes in the books as a tie).

Unfortunately, Koumontzis has been pretty quiet recently. He had no points in any of the six games mentioned above. He hasn't had a point since his 2 point game on November 9 in Alaska.

The Sun Devils are back in action on Saturday, for a weekend series against Michigan Tech.
