Could be Goepfert's woes are all in his head
The good news for Bobby Goepfert: He got his new goalie pads.
Goepfert, who was 1-2-0 with an .881 save percentage and a 3.33 goals-against average wearing his "old-school" brown pads, took the ice for SCSU hockey practice this week with a new pair of leg pads, blocker and catching glove. The predominent color is black, with some white and red mixed in.
"They feel bigger," said Goepfert, who didn't like the previous set because "They make me look like I play for Denver."
Whatever the case, he stopped everything in sight during his first workout against his teammates. The Huskies would love to see a similar performance next week at North Dakota.
Bobby's pads weren't the only tweak during an off-week of practice. Senior Grant Clafton (1 assist in 4 games as a forward) moved back to defense.
And The Great Experiment may not be dead yet. It might even be growing. Junior defenseman Aaron Brocklehurst, who was briefly cast as a winger in the preseason, skated as a forward. So did freshman defenseman Jon Ammerman, who has had his troubles defensively. Ammerman played part of last season as a forward in the USHL.
Next week will tell if the adjustments were just to shake things up during a down period or whether the changes will actually go into effect for a game."
