    The article says that Nyberg "joined the Madison Capitols of the United States Hockey League with hopes of joining the Badgers for the second semester." I wonder if the plan is for him to enroll at UConn for the Spring semester and be available as soon as the Arizona State tournament December 30 & 31?

    It really wasn't hard to get JJ to write about hockey.

    Hehehe. I know. but he wasn't doing it because his perception was there was not a widespread market for it. Old Whalers writer, yes, I think we all know the history. But he wasn't the first to beat the drum. Jerry Trekker was long before the Whalers left.

    UConn Hockey Gets Swedish Defenseman Nyberg In Time For Second Half

    >>Swedish defenseman Philip Nyberg, who reneged on an agreement to play at Wisconsin to sign with UConn, will make his debut with the Huskies on Friday when they play St. Cloud State in the first round of the Desert Hockey Classic in Arizona.

    Huskies coach Mike Cavanaugh confirmed on Thursday that Nyberg had joined the team in Arizona after having some initial trouble getting a visa in Sweden.<<
