first_imgLast Monday, University of Wisconsin men’s hockey head coach Mike Eaves was asked to name his most consistent players through the first 10 games of an up-and-down fall season thus far.After a moment of thought, Eaves gave a convincing answer.”I think that Mr. Drewiske and Mr. Olinger as a pair have played pretty well together and have really stabilized the defense,” Eaves said. “They’ve done a nice job back there. Not only have they played at their strengths, but actually they stepped outside and picked up their game a little bit.”Indeed, junior Davis Drewiske and senior Matt Olinger have emerged as a solid blue-line pair with complementary styles. Drewiske, from Hudson, and Olinger, a Madison native, have used their experience playing together — all of last season and for bits and pieces of the 2004-05 season — to earn Eaves’ praise, along with that of their fellow teammates.”They work really hard together, they’re kind of two defensemen that … don’t make big plays, [and] if you don’t really notice them, it’s a really good game,” senior defenseman Jeff Likens said. “They play really sound defensively, Davis likes to hop in a little bit offensively, and they work really well together.”They’ve got great chemistry, they’re definitely a good pairing for us.”Likens, one of two assistant captains for the Badgers, said Drewiske and Olinger often sit next to each other in the locker room. He knows from experience as a defenseman that chemistry plays a huge impact on a defensive pair’s consistency on the ice.”It plays a big part in there, learning [each other’s] personalities and tendencies,” Likens said. “Even getting away from the hockey part, being able to … hear that one voice that you want to hear, your defensive partner, it’s definitely a tough thing. Being partners and everything, you always want to help your partner and talk to him.”Drewiske and Olinger do plenty of talking to each other, both on and off the ice. The two Badgers are roommates on the road and share a couple of classes together as well.”It’s easier to talk to [each other], we just have a good time out there, it’s about having fun,” Olinger said. “So you go out there and you have a buddy across the ice, it’s nice.”Though both players came to Wisconsin favoring a defense-first mentality, Drewiske has began to show offensive prowess in the early goings of the 2006-07 season. He has put in two goals this season, tops among UW defensemen, and says he trusts Olinger to hold the fort if an opposing offense is able to take advantage of his risk-taking.”He’s always there, and if I do make a step, I try to make it in the right situation, and be able to get back and not get caught,” said Drewiske, who has a career plus-15 rating. “But if I do happen to get caught, he’s a good steady force to have back there; he’ll play an odd-man rush for you if you need it.”Conversely, Olinger has played 107 career games and has not lit the lamp once for the Badgers. But with a plus-six rating in his career, Olinger isn’t too worried about the stat, though he takes any mention of it in stride.”One of these days,” Olinger says, “I’ll get one in there eventually.”Likens, while conceding that the scoreless streak is of importance to no one on the team, made a fearless prediction for his fellow senior defenseman.”We all know what Oli brings to the table for us defensively,” Likens said. “His role isn’t really to score goals, but I have a feeling he’s going to pop one in pretty soon here.”Drewiske said Olinger has been working on his shot in practice, and added, “I think we’re going to get him one before the end of the year.”This weekend would be a good time for Olinger’s first goal. In a matchup of the NCAA champions from the past two seasons, No. 5 Wisconsin (4-4-2, 3-2-1 WCHA) is set to host No. 15 Denver (4-4-0, 2-2-0) in this weekend’s series.The Pioneers have owned the Badgers over the last two years, with Denver winning four games and tying another in the past five meetings. This includes last season’s dreadful series at the Kohl Center, when the Badgers were swept while starting goaltender Brian Elliott was injured.”We lost a couple of games to them last year here, and that didn’t sit well with us or a lot of people, I’m sure, so we’re hungry for this weekend to get back on track.””It’s always a big matchup,” Olinger added. “Every year, they’ve got a great team, so we’ve been practicing really hard this week to get ready for them, and we’ll be ready tomorrow night.”Both Wisconsin and Denver have, for their standards, stumbled out of the gate, with each program mustering just four wins through this weekend.”It’s not so much even from last year, but more of what we’re going through right now,” Drewiske said. “We’re sitting at .500, and that’s not where we want to be.”Likens knows the talent of all players and coaches involved, along with each team’s desire to get a boost from beating a top-tier opponent, will be more than enough to make for some good hockey at the Kohl Center this weekend.”Denver’s always a tough opponent; they’ve produced some good players,” Likens said. “They’re going to come out firing, we’re going to come out firing, and it’s going to be a good matchup.”last_img read more


first_img Related Stories Quarterback recruit Zach Allen works to keep recruiting class together, praises new head coach Shafer Allen said while this week has been stressful and hectic for himself and his family, he is thankful for the opportunity Syracuse offered him. Allen also wished head coach Scott Shafer well as he and the Orange move to the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.“I have been loyal to my commitment to Syracuse this whole time,” he said. “Ever since I committed, I’ve done everything for the program I can.”“At the end of the day, I have to make the decision that’s best for me.” Comments Published on January 12, 2013 at 4:29 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Zach Allen, a quarterback recruit from Temple, Texas, who many considered the star of Syracuse’s recruiting class, has decommitted from Syracuse and committed to Texas Christian.The uncertainty surrounding Syracuse’s vacant offensive coordinator position after former head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett took the same jobs with the Buffalo Bills changed Allen’s thought process, he said. He cited Marrone and Hackett as the reasons he originally chose Syracuse.“Syracuse changed the deal on me when Coach Marrone and Coach Hackett left to go to the NFL. That really put a damper on things,” Allen said. “It really made me second-guess everything. Not knowing the offensive coordinator is going to be a downfall for me.”Allen committed to Syracuse in May and was considered one of the Orange’s top recruits in the Class of 2013, making ESPN’s Elite 11 Finals, one of 25 high school quarterbacks invited to the competition. After Marrone and Hackett left Syracuse, Allen had been reselling the program to other SU commitments, he told The Daily Orange two days ago.Allen said he visited TCU yesterday to confirm his decision and is excited to join the Horned Frogs.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textI committed to TCU. I had been loyal the whole time and have done everything I could for Cuse.

first_imgTomorrow, Friday 29 May 2015, the UN Peacekeepers day would be commemorated in Liberia and in other parts of the world. The theme for this year is “Past, Present and Future” For nearly 70 years since the United Nations was founded, over 125,000 women and men Peacekeepers have been at the frontlines of conflict across the globe including Liberia. While a number of persons, civilians and soldiers alike, have paid the ultimate price in their quest for world peace, the problems seem not to be abating. Rather, it is getting worse and might take a global dimension if the prevailing conflicts in Afghanistan, Burundi, Central African Republic, Iraq, Mali, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen and the resulting humanitarian crisis are anything to go by.Today’s conflicts are getting more complex and volatile. Environments are vast and hostile and peacekeeping operations would be required to come up with a new and more robust strategy to tackle new threats. According to the UN Secretary General in his message on Africa Day, he said “We know that conflicts breed where people suffer from poor governance, human rights violation, exclusion and poverty”Now, more than ever, we need to reflect on what has gone before as we need the will of the international community to provide a blueprint for international peace and security. It seems to us peace messengers that either present strategy is wrong or under resourced. With the changing nature of conflicts and with the evolution of threats everywhere; we need to remember times past when we were dealing with two axis of power and the aftermath of World War II that paved the way for competition among nations. While we reflect on times remembered and the changing nature of modern day conflict vis a vis peacekeeping operations for which Ebola has now become a part, we need to introduce new technologies that are not only essential but crucial to fighting those multiple axis of power who are enemies of peace in highly politicized environment. We need to educate our children through the stories and information we provide them with on the wonderful activities undertaken by women. There is no one-off receipt for making this happen but Messengers of Peace intend to mobilize young people, especially women to write their own stories and share these stories with the rest of the world. We recall that through the Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa (GPFA), Women’s groups were funded to provide support and from these groups, we would like you to read their stories. How it did all happen and what did we do to make sure we put a halt to the spread of this deadly virus?Here’s a pearl of wisdom for you: “Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him”-Aldous Huxley.Support the “Ebola Educates” Campaign in kind through your stories or with your generous cash donation. Until next week, when we come to you with another article on: “Ebola Educates- The roles of Women in the fight against Ebola”, Peace First, Peace above all else, May Peace prevail on earth.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
