Hampsonfits well into

family hockey mold

BY MARTHA CRALL
One might say Gordie Hampson was
destined to play hockey. The sport is a
way of life with the Hampsons. His
father, Ted, played hockey for the Min-
nesota North Stars of the NHL, and his
brothers, Scott and Greg, are currently
playing for Colorado College.
Hampson started his hockey; career
in the second grade. When it came time
to go to college, there was a big choice
to be made by the Minnesota native:
which school (Michigan, Minnesota, or
Denver) to play hockey for.
"I THOUGHT I had a better chance
to play here," he said of his decision.

The 6-3, 210-pound senior has indeed
accumulated playing time, seeing ac-
tion in every gane during his freshman
and sophomore seasons, and breaking a
string of 74 consecutive games played
last year only when he broke his hand in
the opening game against Bowling
Green.
But Hampson is on the way to his best
season ever, checking in at the fourth
spot in scoring with six goals and ten
assists. Last season the left winger en-
ded up the campaign with 22 points.
HAMPSON BOASTS a good wrist
shot and has good size, adding, "I think
I handle the puck pretty well. I have a
fairly good shot although I don't use it

much this year. I try and take the man
as much as I can," he said.
Head coach JohryGiordano likes what
he sees of Hampson in the senior's four-
th and final season, "Gordie handles
the puck very well. This year he's using
his body more than ever.
"Gordie is more of a force on the ice
because he's not looping off the puck as
much. He's got more confidence on the
ice," said Giordano.
THE SOFT-SPOKEN BGS candidate
is serious about hockey, and has an eye
on a possible career in the pros. "I'd
like to hope hockey is in my future. I'm
going to give it a shot. I have a lot of
confidence; I just need the right
breaks.
"I'm not as high a caliber of player as
the Olympians or anything," he added
with caution, "but I grew up (in Min-
nesota) playing with a lot of them."
In the meantime, he is playing on a
team which is tied for third place in the
WCHA despite being picked to finish in
the cellar. "(When the pre-season polls
came out) we all knew we were a lot
better. We work awfully hard, and if
we're all playing tough and with a lot of
confidence, things are going to work out
for us.
"I THINK IF we believe in ourselves,
we can do anything. On any given
night. . . you never know what can
happen. It's amazing what you can do
when you putyour mind to it," he said,
adding, "We're as good as anyone in the
league."
Hampson, who takes his life very
seriously, puts it in perspective with his
religion. "The most important thing in
my life is Jesus Christ," he said.
While he doesn't have problems with
his teammates, the conflict comes from
within. "I've had a tough time being a
Christian. I had personal problems with

SENIOR LEFT winger Gordie Hampson upholds the fine family tradition of hockey players in the Hampson clan. In 16
games this season, the 6-3, 210 pound native of Edina, Minnesota has collected six goals and 10 asssts for 16 points..

how to play a tough game like hockey
the way it's supposed to be played and
at the same time play like 'the man up-
stairs' wants me to play," he said.
"He's brought me towards the kind of
player I can be."
As a person who takes things very

seriously, the October hazing incident
and the publicity which surrounded it
bothered him (as 'well as his team-
mates). "The hazing thing made us dig
deep. It was a negative thing that we
turned around to a positive-type thing.
We have pulled together from the top

down," said Hampson.
For now, Gordie Hampson is playin
the sport he loves, and playing the best
hockey he has ever played. And it
should be enough to carry on the Ham-
pson hockey tradition for a long time to
come.

When students think of Residence

houses such as Rumsey, Elliott, or even
Reeves, but a new house has arrived on
the scene and has beaten them all. Scott

leader in the Residence Hall division of
IM sports at the end of the fall term of

Scott House Athletic Director Mike
Bovino said that he is very pleased with
his house's performance so far. "I think
the reason for our success is that we
have participated in every IM sport and
done well in all of them," said Bovino.
"The, house's attitude has been ex-
cellent this Year, with everyone on the
hall getting involved."
