Mono for Murph

Tough break for Black Bears sophomore Murphy Burnatowski. After he had played his way onto the Canadian National team and was preparing for a two-week trip to Europe, he was diagnosed with mononucleosis and was forced to miss the trip.

See story.

Check out the great comments on Murphy from Canada coach Leo Rautins.

Noteworthy: Leo Rautins, coach of the Canadian National team, is a former Syracuse star and father of Andy Rautins, a more recent Syracuse star. The elder Rautins began his collegiate career at the University of Minnesota before transferring to Syracuse. As a freshman at Minnesota, Rautins and the Gophers played an intra-squad game at my high school. He was part of a recruiting class at Minnesota many still believe to be among the best in school history.
