The handsome, but hockey-rav-
aged face of Rick Mallette mirror-
ed his sentiments as he spoke.
"Frustration, frustration, frustra-
tion. After a long period of losing,
you just never get any good feel-
ings. Sometimes, it's hard to even
take the ice, but you have to keep
doing your best."
Michigan hockey captain Rick
Mallette is a four-year veteran of
the team. In those four winters,.
the pucksters have accumulated a
record of 43-74. This season, the
senior from Montreal leads the
hapless Maize and Blue in scoring
with six goals and 18 assists for
24 points. Sitting in the U n i a n
Station over a cup of coffee, Mal-
lette shared his wide-ranging
thoughts with me.
Q. Does it bother you to have
played on-losing teams during your
A. Definitely. Losing was some-
thing I'd never faced before I
came to Michigan, and it took~ a
long tim'e for me to adjust to it.
Losing is something I could never
get used to. You can't blame the
press and the fans for getting down
on the team for losing, but when
they do, the pressure builds and
just not as muchisu a, inng
Q. What was the problem with
this year's team?
a lack of experience would even-
tually tell the story and it did. Af-
ter we started to lose, the players
began to think that maybe we
couldn't do it as a team. As a re-
suit, a lot of much-needed confi-
dence was lost. rhis team contains
an incredible bunch of hacd work-
ers, but too ofteii, we find our-
selves out of position and that's
when goals are scored against us.
Once all the young players get ex-
perience, Michigan is gong to
have one fine hockey team.
Q. Have the pressures involved
with losing taken their toll on this
A. Yes. It has gotten t> t h e
point where some players prefer
to play on the road because there
is so much pressure on us when we
play at the Coliseum. But when
a team loses like we have, that is
to be expected.
Q. What do you conside-- to be
your role as captain on this year's
Michigan hockey team?
A. Considering I am not a great
goal scorer, I judged my job as
captain to be one of helping every-
one (,onmunicate with eaco other,
aiding anyone who needed help
with their problems and basically,
getting the team mentally togeth-
is that I honestly did my best
Q. What have been your greatest
thrills and disappointments in hoc-
A. My greatest thrill has been
going to this school and playing
hockey here for four years. I've
enjoyed all the traveling and all of
the people I've met. Let's face it.
It's been the greatest experience
of my life. As for my biggest hock-
ey disappointment. That's defin-
itely been trying to escape from
defeat and evenrually having to
face it. It would have been so
much nicer to have played on a
Q. Do any of your hockey games
here at Michigan stick out in your
A. A couple of them do. Last sea-
son, the game against Notre Dame
in which I scored an overtime goal
was a big thrill for me. Another
game I remember was back in my
freshman year again Wisconsin.
Early in the action, I cleanly
checked two guys, neither of whom
returned to the ice that night.
Q. Is scoring a lot of goals im-
portant to you?
A. To tell you the truth, hitting
some guy withrea nce,sclean chek
complishment than scoring agoal
on the ice and to hit a guy with
a powerful, but clean check that
he'll remember really makes me
Qr efoeMchgnrr hr
A. Yes. I played football for ten
years, during which my teems
won nine championships af one
kind or another, including the Ca-

on going into teaching. Somewhere I

unrelenting frustrations synono- I

Mayor Jack Gan wired Inter-
national Olympic Committee presi-
dent Lord Killanin that "lack of
financial aid guarantees makes it
impossible for our city to issue an
invitation to the IOC" when it
meets Sunday to select a site.
Salt Lake City had been select-
ed by the U.S. Olympic Committee
Jan. 4 over three other sites as the
designated U.S. area to host the
games. There hadl been fears that
U.S. hopes of hosting the games
might be ended by Salt Lake City's
withdrawal only a few days before
the site was to be selected.
But a USOC spokesman said
Tuesday the IOC had informed the
USOC another U.S. city could bid

MICHIGAN HOCKEY CAPTAIN Rick Mallette (10) turns on the speed in action earlier this winter
against North Dakota. ND is one of only four victims for the Mallette-led pucksters so far this season.
LKE PLACID CONSIDERED

step would be.
Lake Placid, N.Y., among the un-
successful previous bidders, had
shown continuedt interest 'his
month as Salt Lake City's efforts
to get guaranteed federal funding
met with continued failure. Gan
and other Utah officials had in-
sisted that federal funding of about
$30 million would have to be com-
mitted before the city would even
present its bid to the IOC at the
meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Mayor Robert Peacock of Lake
