Notes: UAF's Kunyk Is CCHA Preseason 2nd-Teamer; Familiar Faces

Cody Kunyk, who last season led UAF in scoring, was selected a preseason second-team All-CCHA pick by the league's coaches.

Kunyk, a junior, last season racked 15-17--32 totasl in 36 games and led the Nanooks with seven power-play strikes.

Also, saw a few more familiar names on an ECHL training camp roster. Greenville is now home to former Alaska Aces goaltender Adam Courchaine, former Aces forward Patrick Schafer and (briefly) former Aces defenseman Brock Shelgren. Also on the Greenville roster is former UAA defenseman Lee Baldwin.

And in CHL Missouri, up cropped the name Tyler Moir -- he played one season at UAA (2007-08) before heading to Canadian college for two years and then briefly with ECHL Wheeling last season. In his two years at the University of Waterloo, Moir in 56 games earned 23-23--46 totals. Missouri also signed his older brother, Kyle, a goaltender and NHL draft pick.
