Up North Sports Report: Hockey's small world, Dugas' gamble pays off

The hockey community is a small world and I was reminded of that Wednesday at Bemidji State hockey practice.

I wanted to talk to BSU goalie Mathieu Dugas about his shutout at Northern Michigan and while I never heard of him before, he knew who I was.

Dugas has an interesting hockey story and at 21 years old, he already sounds like a hockey journeyman.

Early indications are that Bemidji State may have found a good sleeper goalie in Dugas, perhaps one who was overlooked by other college programs.
