Schedule for week of 1/28 - 2/2

This week is lighter than last, with the AHL and USHL taking their All-Star breaks. There's plenty of action to go around, though. Games To Watch: On Tuesday, Okotoks (Brad Eidsness) will put their 35-9-0-4 record to the test against the #1 ranked Junior "A" club in all of Canada, the Camrose Kodiaks (41-4-0-5). Camrose boasts two of the AJHL's top five scorers in Joe Colbourne (DU) and Duluth Mike Connolly (Duluth). Eidsness will see plenty of these WCHA-bound playmakers when he enrolls at North Dakota. The QMJHL's two hottest teams - league best Baie-Comeau (Benjamin Breault) and second place Rouyn-Noranda - will square off on Friday night. Other notes SSK will see both ends of the SEL this week, with their contest against last place Mora sandwiched between games against two of the better teams in teams Timra and Farjestad. The opportunity for Sabres prospects to have good weeks is there. Kolner Haie (Philip Gogulla) faces two of the DEL's bottom teams, while all of Denver, Michigan State, Bowling Green, and Harvard play teams near the bottom of their respective league's standings. Meanwhile, Boston College will be tested by Providence before the Beanpot gets underway.
