Its Alive! The College Kids Are Back!

Many of the NC/SC teams have remarkably been updating their websites with new rosters and schedules. Use the links provided under "Carolinas Hockey Links" over there -------> and see for yourself.

Pete from UNC-W (who along with the ECU guys, is the best at keeping in touch w/ C.O.I.) sent me this e-mail today:

I always enjoy hearing from the club hockey level! As far as I know, there are no other blogs out there who are dedicated to covering the Carolinas club hockey scene. CarolinaOnIce (at) is the address if you ever want any updates and free press.

Be on the look out in the coming months for some A/V delight from the local college clubs.
