2004-05 Season Outlook:
The last of the Arizona Connection is gone, the days of outscoring opponents 7-5 are in the past and the Cobbers are coming off a season where they missed the MIAC playoffs for the first time in three years. Those facts might cause Concordia head coach Kerry Norman to feel nostalgic, but she is firmly rooted in the present and optimistically looking towards the future.

When Norman looks at her team on paper she sees a group of players that will not have one top line that has TNT-like capabilities when it comes to putting the puck in the net, but will have two-three lines that can score goals at opportune times. She also sees a team that will be committed to playing defense and making their opponent earn every goal they score.

The reason for Normanís optimism is quality leadership and renewed commitment to work. Concordia senior captain Lindsay Czarnecki (Riverside, Calif.) will bring her no-nonsense brand of hockey to the forefront of the Cobber team. She led Concordia in scoring last season with 14 goals and eight assists, and was the lone Cobber representative on the MIAC All-Conference Team. Czarnecki, unlike past Cobber goal-scoring snipers, relies on getting in the right spot at the right time and working for every point she gets. 

Joining Czarnecki on the offensive forefront will be a pair of sophomores. Hannah Impola (Brainerd, Minn.) and Brandie Dunn (Plano, Texas) were both in the top four in the team in scoring last year. Impola had a symmetrical eight goals and eight assists, while Dunn contributed 10 goals and five assists. Impola finished sixth in the MIAC among conference freshman.

Defensively, the Cobbers will lean on the junior duo of Kali Palmer (N. Richland Hills, Texas) and Sam Gunning (Brainerd, Minn.). Palmer is the teamís best offensive defenseman and can jump into the attack to add critical scoring chances at the opportune time. Last year she was fifth on the team in scoring and finished with five goals and four assists. She was 10th in scoring among conference defensemen. Gunning, more of a ďstay-at-homeĒ type defenseman, had six assists in 2003-04. She makes more of an impact in front of the Cobber goal and slows the opposing teamís attack down through the neutral ice area. 

Goaltending will be the strength of the Cobber squad in 2004-05. Norman will have the luxury of being able to call on two very experienced goalies. Jamie Savage (Sr., Apple Valley) and Jenna Johnson (Jr., Wadena, Minn.) have both played in over 12 games in their careers. Last year, Johnson had a team-best 3.18 goals against average. Savage was close behind with a 3.24 mark. Both goalies will have the opportunity to carry the Cobbers in big games in 2004-05, and both have the ability to single-handedly shut down the best attackers in the league.

If Concordia can cut down on their time in the penalty box, the Cobbers led the MIAC in penalty minutes in 2003-04, and play committed defense in all three zones, then Kerry Norman will be looking at a return engagement in the playoffs and a rock-like foundation for the future.
