Roger “The Owl” Godin was recognized in hockey’s The Fischler Report by publisher Stan Fischler, who commended Roger for putting together an exhibit on the U. S. Coast Guard Cutters championship team from World War II. Roger, the curator for the Minnesota Wild and an active member of the Society for International Hockey Research, has the exhibit on display at the Xcel Energy Center, home of the Wild. The Cutters, who won titles in the Eastern Amateur Hockey League and Amateur Hockey Association of the United States, had a number of Minnesotans, including Hockey Hall of Famers John Mariucci and Frank Brimsek. Roger was the original curator of the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in Eveleth, Minnesota.
