Santorelli Watch

Of the four leading goal scorers in NCAA Division-I hockey, only one is still playing in his conference tournament.

Ted Cook of Niagara, NMU's Mike Santorelli and Miami's Ryan Jones will sit and watch North Dakota's Ryan Duncan to see where they finish as the season come to a close this weekend.

Cook still currently holds the lead with 32 goals this season. Santorellis currently sits in second place, finishing the year with 30 goals while the best Jones can finish is fourth with 28 goals.

Duncan, who is one back of Santorelli with 29 goals, has possibly two games left in the season before the NCAA tournament starts. The Fighting Sioux will meet St. Cloud State in the first semifinal of the WCHA playoffs on Friday.

Santorelli Watch will be taking a whole new perspective in the upcoming weeks as Wildcat fans wait to see whether or not the junior forward will bolt for the professional ranks.

Santorelli was still in Marquette as of noon Monday. I ran into him outside the Superior Dome today and no, he was not wearing one of the God awful Milwaukee Admirals jerseys.
