For the Week of January 16, 2006

THIS WEEK’S GAMES - The No. 17-ranked University of Oklahoma® hockey club (14-8-2) do not play this week due to the OU Spring 2006 academic semester getting underway. The Sooners next play on January 27th and 28th when the No. 10-ranked Sun Devils of Arizona State University come to town for a pair of games.

LAST OU HOCKEY GAMES – The Sooners took a pair of games from the United States Naval Academy (10-11-0) this past weekend, beating the Midshipmen 6-3 on Saturday night and 5-3 on Sunday evening. In Saturday night’s contest, the game was tied at 1 before the OU offense erupted for five goals from five different Sooners in the second period to lead OU to a 6-3 win over Navy. Sunday evening, Kevin Kennedy and Kelly Forbes scored two goals apiece and Shawn Webber scored his second of the weekend to lead OU to a 5-3 win over Navy.

RANKINGS – The Sooners are currently ranked 17th in the nation in the latest ACHA Coaches Division 1 ranking. The next ACHA Coaches D1 ranking is scheduled to be released on Friday, January 20th, 2006. In the unofficial computer ranking of ACHA D1 clubs, Oklahoma is currently ranked 13th.

SOONERS HOME GAMES ON THE AIR – All remaining OU Hockey home games will be broadcast over the internet this season. Join Caleb Fox, a junior from Rowlett, Texas (play-by-play), and Keaton Fuchs, a junior from Norman (color), as they bring the hard-hitting, fast-paced action that is Sooners Hockey to you over the internet throughout the 2005-2006 season. OU Hockey broadcasts begin 15 minutes prior to faceoff. Oklahoma hockey fans can listen to the OU Hockey internet broadcast by going to either www.icehockey.ou.edu or www.broadcastmonsters.com and clicking the appropriate link.

HOME SWEET HOME – Although formally known as Blazers Ice Centre, when the Sooners take the ice to “Oklahoma!” and “Boomer Sooner” blares over the sound system after every Sooners goal, the rink transforms into the “Sooners Ice Center”. All Sooners home games are played at 7:30 P.M. at Blazers Ice Centre, 8000 South I-35, in Oklahoma City.

TICKETS – Individual tickets for all OU Hockey games are on sale now and can be purchased at Blazers Ice Centre. Call 631-3307 or 631-2709 for additional information.

PRACTICE SCHEDULE – The Sooners practice this week at the Blazers Ice Centre on Tuesday from 8:45-10:30 P.M. and on Wednesday from 4:30-6:00 P.M.
