Injury-laden icers to meet MSU
Michigan Hockey Statistics
By TIM MAKINEN
The Michigan hockey team is not in an envious
po sition as it heads into this weekend's home-and-
home series against arch-rival Michigan State. Beset
by injuries, the Wolverines (12-15) will also be up
against a Spartan squad that has revenge on its mind.
Michigan downed State, 5-3, in East Lansing when
the, two teams last met, and that is a fact that the
Spartans have not forgotten. The victory ended a 10-
game winless streak for Michigan against the Spar-
tans, but the Wolverines will be hard pressed to ex-
tend their winning streak to two games when they
return to the Spartans' home ice tonight. Tomorrow
night Michigan comes back to the more cozy confines
of Yost Ice Arena.
"I THINK they (the Spartans) will be pumped up
for the game," Michigan head coach John Giordano
said. "There's no way they want tolose in front of
their own fans again."
Revenge aside, the foremost concern on Giordano's
mind is injuries.Michigan again will be playing under
full throttle at the blue line, as the defense in par-
ticular has paid a heavy toll in injuries this season.
Defensemen Mike Neff (knee) and Todd Carlile (leg
infection) will miss both games. Carlile was
originally expected to play, but the infection has got-
ten worse and there exists a chance he will miss the
remainder of the season, according to Giordano.
Another defenseman, Greg Hudas. is ineligible
because of problem with grades, and forward Frank
Downing is still recovering from a knee injury. The
only bright spot for the Wolverines is that defenseman
Pat Goff has recovered from a concussion sustained
in last Saturday's loss to Western Michigan and will
"YOU HAVE to be realistic," said Giordano.
"You've got to be able to put the players on the ice,
and right now we're really hurt with serious in-
Michigan State (21-7), meanwhile, is healthy and
ready to go. The Spartans, ranked 7th in the nation,
have not seen league action since two weeks ago
when they split a series with Ohio State. Since then
they have lost an exhibition game against the U.S.
Olympic team, and then easily disposed of Lowell in
two games last weekend.
"Playing the Olympic team was fun, and it was a
good experience," said Spartan head coach Ron
Mason. "We're ready to get back to some meaningful
games though. The rest did allow some of our guys to
recuperate fully (from injuries).Both (Gord) Flegel
and (Newell) Brown are 100-percent now."
WITH THE Spartans being healthy, the revenge
factor, and not having the home-ice advantage
tonight, the weekend could begin very miserably for
the Wolverines. Yet past encounters have demon-
strated that anything can happen when Michigan
faces off against Michigan State.
"It's a great, great series, always very emotional,"
Mason said. "Michigan will play its game, which
means probably physical, and we'll stick to ours."
Both games begin at 7:30 p.m.

On a friend's suggestion, the nine-year
old put on a pair of skates and stepped
out on ice for the first time. He was
trying out for a "squirt" travel team in
Warren as a goalie - he made it.
"I was a bad skater at first, maybe
that's why I ended up in goal," jokes
Mark Chiamp, that same fourth-grader
turned starting goalie for the Michigan

the East Detroit native had was playing
with friends in basements. He wasn't
even really a fan of the sport. Yet, he
was always the goalie in those
"I told my dad I was interested in
playing hockey and he just went out and
bought me the equipment," said
Chiamp, who admits he hardly played
that first year. But he stayed with the
sport, crediting his father, who has
missed only a handful of his son's
games, and "midget league" coach,
Mark Craig, as his inspirations.
"HE (CRAIG) was a great coach,"
Chiamp said. "He gave me a lot of con-
fidence and made hockey fun."
The Craig-coached midget team, Lit-
tle Caesars, a well-known team in the
Detroit area, went to the National
Championships with Chiamp in goal.
He had improved so much that the Red-
ford Royals, a junior team that also in-
cluded Wolverine left wing Chris
Seychel, drafted Chiamp during his
high school years.
When the time came for college
recruiting, Chiamp heard from the
likes of Lake Superior State, Colorado
College, and Wisconsin, but never from

was 11 or 12, I've wanted to go to

It's been a tough year for the
women's basketball programs at
Michigan and Purdue, as both the
Wolverines and Boilermakers have yet
to win a Big Ten contest this season.
That will change tonight, however,
when Michigan hosts Purdue at Crisler
Arena at 7:00 p.m.
The Wolverines are currently 0-6, (2-
12 overall) in the conference and mired
in last place while Purdue is 0-5 (4-11

arranged for Chiamp to re-enroll at

the course and play another season with

BUT breaking into Michigan life did
not come easy for Chiamp. "It was a
pretty big shock, not at all what I expec-
ted," Chiamp said of his first year. "It
was very physically demanding."
Chiamp saw limited action in his rookie
season, about 100 minutes in four
"I never really got a shot and I kind of
got down," said the junior. "I missed
not being on the team, but I never lost
confidence and my social life was great
because I never played."
The next year saw the goaltending
duties split between Chiamp and Jon
Elliot, neither dominating the playing
PRIOR TO the start of this season,
the net was up for grabs when Giordano
said, "Chiamp is knocking at the door."
Now, Chiamp seems to be a permanent
fixture in the Michigan goal, starting
all but two games. Thus far in the 1983-.
84 campaign, Chiamp has knocked
away 751 enemy shots, allowing only
102 through the posts, for an .880 per-
centage and a 12-13 record. These.
statistics are more impressive when
one considers Chiamp plays behind
a young, injury-plagued defense..
Senior defenseman, John DeMartino
describes Chiamp's style as "cat-like."
"He's kept us in a lot of games,
especially in the early going."
Chiamp attributes this year's success
to a summer weight training and run-
ning program implemented by Gior-
"I KNEW I was in good shape,"
Chiamp said. Chiamp opened the
season against Michigan-Dearborn
with a win, but was racked up at Ohio
State, 9-1. "The coach came up to me
after the game and said, 'Don't worry
about it' and I've been in ever since."
"Mark's come up with some pretty
big games," said Giordano. "He seems
like a gamer to me, he's got that com-
"I'm so happy it worked out this
way," said Chiamp. "Home is far
enough away but close enough for my
dad to come out for games. If any kids

Junior guard Brenda Kelsay leads the
team in scoring averaging 13.4 points
per Big Ten contest. Freshman for-
ward Kay Sharpe has been a bright spot
for the Boilermakers recently as she
scored 20 points in 29 minutes in a loss
to Illinois last weekend.
Despite the slow start, Jones is not
disappointed with her club. "I feel good
about it(the season), considering the
makeup of the team. But the bottom
line is winning."
Winning is something Michigan has
not been doing very often either, mainly
because the Wolverines have been hurt
by a lack of consistent scorers. Only
sophomore forward Wendy Bradetich,
who is the sixth leading scorer in the
Big Ten averaging 17.5 points per
game, has filled the net consistently.
