Pro Hockey Notes - 2007 Revisited


Three members of Clarkson's 2007 ECAC Hockey championship team have been making news in professional hockey of late.
Nick Dodge, who captained that squad as a junior, saw his streak of playing in 201 consecutive games end last week when he did not participate in back-to-back games for the American Hockey League's Charlotte Checkers. His streak was the leading streak in the AHL at the time.
Grant Clitsome, who was an assistant captain at Clarkson in 2008, had an impressive first week in the National Hockey League, scoring two goals and picking up an assist in his first three games this season with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Clitsome spent a brief amount of time with Columbus last season as well.
Here is an interview with Clitsome that was done by the Blue Jackets and he talks about his experience at Clarkson:

Here's a post-game interview with Clitsome after he scored a goal on Ogdensburg native Jimmy Howard in a game against the Detroit Red Wings last week. There is footage of his goal in the interview:

The final member of the 2007 ECAC Hockey championship team who has been doing well lately is Chris D'Alvise, who was a sophomore on that squad and was the championship weekend's Most Outstanding Player.
D'Alvise was called up from the ECHL's Stockton Thunder in December and has been playing for Springfield of the AHL, where he was briefly a teammate of Clitsome's. In just 24 AHL games, D'Alvise has scored seven goals with eight assists.
"We were a little short down the middle, and Chris is the kind of offensive center who can make plays," Springfield coach Rob Riley told "He's a little different style; (he's) a creative, smart player who works well with his linemates."
