WCHA All-Stars Complete Tourney In Europe

The first collegiate all-star team ever to participate in an overseas tournament finished with a modicum of success Sunday, as the WCHA All-Stars tied Germany’s Krefeld Penguins 3-3 at the Kolin Cup in Zug, Switzerland.

The draw was reached on the strength of two goals by Minnesota forward Wyatt Smith — whose five tallies overall led the team — and came on the heels of two losses, 6-5 to Mannheim Adler of Germany and 7-5 to host team EV Zug, sending the WCHA to an 0-2-1 final record in the tourney.

The WCHA roster, composed entirely of seniors and representing nine conference schools, was as follows: F Clayton Read and G Doug Teskey of Alaska-Anchorage; F Darren Clark, F Brian Swanson and D Scott Swanson of Colorado College; F Paul Comrie, D Todd Kidd and D Shawn Kurulak of Denver; G David Weninger of Michigan Tech; F Mike Anderson, F Reggie Berg and F Wyatt Smith of Minnesota; F Curtis Bois and D Bert Gilling of Minnesota-Duluth; F Adam Calder, F David Hoogsteen, F Jay Panzer and D Brad Williamson of North Dakota; F George Awada of St. Cloud State; and F Jason Goulet, D Craig Anderson and D Tim Rothering of Wisconsin.

The team was coached by Wisconsin’s Jeff Sauer, assisted by Mike Sertich of Minnesota-Duluth, John Hill of Colorado College and Tom Serratore of St. Cloud State.
