On Wednesday morning the Sheriff’s Patrol had an opportunity to sit down with first year Bobcat forward “Curious” George Grannis from the hockey hotbed of Duluth Mn. We talked about what the Bobcats need to do this weekend against the hapless last place Brookings Blizzard, who only have nine wins to their credit in playing 48 games so far this season accumulating a grand total of 21 points for their efforts.
When asked if the Bobcats have a different plan of attack this weekend in facing the Blizzard, Grannis expects more of the same against Brookings as they did last week in their sweep of the Blizzard. Grannis stated that the reason the Bobcats are 7-1-1-1 in their last ten tilts is that the team is finally buying into what Head Coach Layne Sedevie is preaching about in playing Junior A hockey.
Grannis, who has already committed to play Division I college hockey for Clarkson University of the ECHCAL also told the Sheriff’s Patrol that high school hockey is very big in the Duluth-Superior region. When it comes to the Bobcats, Grannis will have two more years of eligibility remaining if he chooses to return to the Capital City of North Dakota.
The Bobcats currently sit in fourth place in the NAHL Central Division with 55 points, but only three points behind the second place Austin Bruins. Austin hosts the first place Aberdeen Wings this weekend, while third place Minot with 57 points will be hosting the fifth place Minnesota Wilderness entering this first weekend in March. It will be interesting to see how the standings will look come late Saturday night in the NAHL Central.
