The pressures and responsibili-
ties of replacing an all-star goalie
on a defending NCAA champion-
ship hockey team can be a tough
burden for a sophomore.
This task has been faced by
Greg Page, who became Michigan's
man behind the mask after the
graduation of NCAA All-Tourna-
ment goaltender Bob Gray.
Breaking into college hockey
can be tough for a goalkeeper if
he has had nothing but high school
experience behind him. This is
especially true for an American
breaking into WCHA play where
most of the players are Canadians
with several years of experience
in beating a goalie.
"I was pretty scared at the be-
ginning of the season," Page ad-
mitted, "especially against Min-
nesota. I didn't know how I'd do
or the team would do."
Another factor which puts a lot
of pressure on a young goaltender
is that the fans are prone to blame
the goalie for the team's losses.
In explaining his reaction to the
crowd,_ Page said, "When I know
I'm doing my best out there and
the fans begin to complain it
starts to' get to me. When your
own fans give it to you, it's bad.
The fans just don't seem to realize
sometimes that I want to win even
more than they do."
Page has gained confidence and
experience throughout the season.
r According to Coach Al Renfrew,
"Hewas shaky at first, but he has
been improving steadily. In some
games he has played as well as
a goalie could possibly be expected
to play. It's pretty tough for a
goalie to stop a team once it has
gained momentum. Our defense
has also been spotty and at times
has not given Greg good protec-
The coaches of several of Michi-
gan's opponents have also been
impressed with Greg's play. After
seeing his play in the Boston
H o li d a y Tournament, Boston
Coach Jack Kelley described Page
as "as fine an opponent goalie as
I have seen." Following his team's
losses to the Wolverines, Minne-
sota-Duluth coach John Romano
commented that Page "played two
great games and made some fan-
tastic saves on a lot of tough
Page is more sure of himself
than he was at the beginning of
the season but he admits that he
"still lacks a little confidence.
However, since the first series I've
never gone out on the ice thinking
we wouldn't win. I guess I de-
pended on the rest of the team too
nmuch at first. I counted on them
to do the work and keep the puck
away, but I've learned to rely more
Carrying a large share of the
responsibility for the team's vic-
tories or defeats builds up a lot of
tension in Page's mind before the
"I used to spend the whole day
thinking about the game and
worrying about it. Now I don't
think about it until just before
the game, but I get very tight and
nervous then because I know I
have to hold them.
"To relax I usually play cards.
I haven't been in the league long
enough to think about each player
and what he will do, so I just try
to forget about the game."
Greg is still not satisfiecd with
his improvement, however, and
feels that there are still several
facets of his game which need
work, "Something's still missing,
and I've got to keep trying to find
out what it is."
For a netminder there is really
no way to practice except in a
game situation, but Page jumps
rope and plays paddleball to stay
in shape and improve his reflexes
in the off season.
"Paddlebal is similar to playing
goal in the sense that you have
an object coming back fast at you.'
It also teaches you to play the

and I get cold; then all of a sud-
den someone comes in on me.
"Then sometimes when we're
behind, it gets frustrating to stay
in the nets. I want to get down
there and score."
Page, unlike most hockey play-
ers who learned to skate soon after
they learned to walk, didn't play
hockey until he was in the seventh
"All the kids in the neighbor-
hood played hockey and wanted
me to play too. I told them I didn't
know how to skate, but they said
that that was okay because I could
