When hockey fans who are in the know about Brad Richards and Vincent Lecavalier's history together, have to tell you where the two players met -- they will point you to central Canada and Notre Dam, the two became fast friends with the Hounds and the rest is history.
Another Notre Dame Hound is heading for Tampa Bay.
Shane McElwain, a gargantuan tight-end (6'5", 255 lbs) has signed a letter-of-intent with the University of South Florida Bulls.. This takes a back seat to USF gaining the commitment of highly coveted QB Blue-chipper Carlton Hill...
And I guess it's odd of me to think McElwain might have some bearing on USF's hockey team (which is not NCAA but it's crappola either). He has only played football one season and has several seasons of hockey under his belt from both Notre Dame and his former home in Colorado.
