During one of UAH’s games in Fairbanks against the Alaska Nanooks, the referees wore helmet cameras. Below is how the officials saw and heard the game.

While it’s not one of the most fun videos to see if you’re a Charger fan (what with all the Nanook goal scoring), it is interesting to see the game from the referee’s point of view.

In case you missed it: Penalty Box Radio in Nashville was in town to catch the Chargers’ Saturday game against Lake Superior State. They have interviews with Coach Mike Corbett and goal-scorers Jeff Vanderlugt and Matt Salhany.

Save the date: The UAH Hockey Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, June 7 at 1 p.m. at Hampton Cove Golf Club. We’ll pass along further details for this important fundraiser as they become available.

Around the WCHA: If you’ve been following Geof’s WCHA projections, you already know that the race for playoff positioning is fierce.

Ferris State holds a four-point lead atop the standings after a sweep of Alaska-Anchorage at home while second-place Minnesota State was idle. Both teams have clinched the top two seeds with four games to go. Ferris State moved up to No. 4 and Minnesota State enters at No. 19 in this week’s USCHO.com poll.

With Michigan Tech’s home-and-home sweep of rival Northern Michigan, the third-place Huskies have secured a playoff spot as well (they can’t finish lower than eighth). Only seven points separate third from ninth.

Lake Superior State’s sweep of UAH propelled the Lakers into a tie for fifth.
