Sure the Wolverines are tearing it up in the CCHA and Michigan State is defending National Champs, but there is other hockey to discuss citizens, namely EMU's club hockey team being ranked the No. 15 team in Division I of the American Collegiate Hockey Association. Eastern Michigan (21-11-5), at one point this season won 13 of 14 games, including a win over then #9 Kent State and #4 Ohio State. Former NHL and Red Wing alum Lee Norwood WAS coaching the EMU hockey team before stepping down this week. Joe Fosbender will lead EMU's charges the rest of the way.
Because of its ranking, Eastern has earned a bid to the ACHA national tournament to be held in Rochester, N.Y., in March. EMU has not decided if they will go (again the differences between club hockey and CCHA hockey).
