Minutes before Michigan fresh-
man goaltender Josh Blackburn
takes the ice to battle Lake Superior
in his regular season debut Sunday,
he may be visited by a special guest:
Marty Turco. ' - """'° ®"
The recently Hockey
graduated Turco Notebook
might make an-
appearance at Yost
Ice Arena for Michigan's national
championship banner-raising cere-
mony, depending on his own hockey
schedule. Turco, a member of the
Dallas Stars' farm system, is set to
play the following night at home in
Kalamazoo for the Michigan K-
Mum's the word around Yost,
though. Not even Michigan coach
Red Berenson knows Turco's plans
"We'll see if we can't get one or
two of last year's seniors over here,"
Yost employees will be handing
out about 500 miniature national title
banners prior to the ceremony, which
starts around 4:45 p.m. and ends in
time for the game's 5 p.m. start.
RoMINSKI's RETURN: Assistant
captain Dale Rominski should be
back for Sunday's matinee contest,
after an administrative academic
Rominski had taken an indepen-
dent study course over the summer to
qualify for senior status. Rominski
passed the class, but those credits
had not been recorded.
This mistake left Rominski off of
the eligibility list the team received

Berenson said "He got a passing

guidelines and avoid possible forfei-
ture of the Saturday's game against
Guelph, Berenson scratched him
from the lineup.
Rominski was allowed to play in
the Blue/White game Friday night,
since it was an exhibition.
"It's kind of out of my hands,"
Rominski said. "If it's only that I
have to miss the Guelph game, then
it'll turn out OK."
TRAINER's RooM: Michigan is
gradually returning all of its starters
to top form after minor injuries.
Sophomore forward Mark Kosick
is finally back in action over a sepa-
rated shoulder that sidelined him for
most of last week. Not only will
Kosick be in uniform for Sunday's
ceremony, he'll be in the lineup.
"My shoulder's 100 percent,"
Kosick said. "There's no reason I
