Duluth @ Omaha

    Here's the question in the room:

    Simon Latkoczy has played well over his last five starts, and has a claim to the Omaha net.

    Jake Kucharski was very rocky after shutting out Denver -- but was solid against St. Lawrence. He played very well in both games at Amsoil Arena.


    Who do you start in goal this weekend?

    Like to see Simon Latkoczy get the net Friday. Kuch on Saturday IF Simon fails, otherwise give Simon the weekend. Time to see what he’s made of.

    Kucharski is on the Richter Award "Watch List": 

    https://omavs.com/news/2023/1/12/kucharski-named-to-2022-23-richter-award-watch-list.aspx 

    This is an interesting question. 

    The team is 4-2 with Simon in net. They are 5-7-2 with Kucharski. 

    Latkoczy has a .899 save %. Kucharski has a .904. 

    Latkoczy has a 2.4 GAA. Kucharski has a 2.8 GAA. 

    The stats between the two are very close. I'm kinda with Jim here that maybe it is time to give Latkoczy the Friday start to change things up. 

    UNO is 4-4 in their last 8. The sweep over Western was great, as was the split at Denver. Getting swept at CC and splitting with St. Lawrence in Omaha were head scratchers (I do think Lemay is more important to this team that we might have initially realized). 

    I mean, who knew we'd go 3-1 against the #4 and #12 teams in the nation, but go 1-3 against CC and SLU. 

    Latkoczy's numbers in juniors were interesting. He had a 2.89 GAA with the Chicago Steel in the 2020-21 season (16 games) and a 3.31 GAA with the Madison Capitols last season (42 games). 

    But I think he can be a really good netminder for UNO down the stretch.

    Madison was an awful team. Latkoczy won an Anderson Cup with Chicago (on loan, while Madison had ceased operations due to COVID). He then carried a bad Madison team deep into the playoffs.

    Do we know anything about Lemay's status for this weekend?

    I haven't seen anything on his status... and the video on Twitter of the midweek presser was a short/alternating style between Tychonick and Gabinet. 

    If it was addressed, it didn't make the clip.
