Paisley, Joe, The Gazette (Colorado Springs, CO)


The news of longtime coach Scott Owens' resignation surprised fans, players and coaches alike.

"We were all a little bit surprised," CC junior defenseman Peter Stoykewych said. "We loved playing for him as a coach and had the utmost respect for him. He gave us all an opportunity."

Names already making the speculation rounds in social media include: Bonnett, Rud, former Denver coach George Gwozdecky, Minnesota assistant Mike Guentzel, former North Dakota associate coach Cary Eades and former DU assistant Derek Lalonde. …
