6 Questions For Chay Genoway

I recently had the opportunity to e-mail some questions to University of North Dakota hockey player Chay Genoway.  After being granted a medical hardship year by the NCAA, Genoway decided to return to the Fighting Sioux after suffering a concussion in mid-November of last season.  Below is a Q and A with Chay.  Thanks to UND Media Relations Director for Athletics Jayson Hajdu for facilitating this interview.


1. First off, the question you get asked most often: How do you feel?

Chay Genoway: I feel like I have come a long way since the summer has began.  I am able to train at a high level everyday without the headaches.

2. What does your daily hockey routine include?

CG:  For the guys who are around training in Grand Forks, we workout at 8 am Monday through Friday. Workouts usually take two hours with a combination of weights, quick feet training, plyometrics, and cardio.  After that, we try to find an open time to get on the ice to do some drills or play a fun scrimmage if we can get the right amount of guys.

3.  What percentage would you say you’re at in terms of hockey capabilities right now?

CG:  That’s a difficult question to answer because it is still July, but I am progressing along like most other summers.

4.  Is there any doubt in your mind that you will be ready when the season begins?

CG:  No, I am confident I should be ready to go.

5.  You must be very excited for this upcoming season, getting a second chance at a senior season.  Do you feel like it could be a special year?

CG:  I think this team has the potential to do something really special and I am just excited to get a chance to be a part of it.

6.  Anything you’d like to add?

CG:  I just want to wish Justin Morneau a quick recovery.  Go Twins!!!

  1. As I sit in front of my balance sheets and income statements, I take a break to look into my crystal ball. It shows an 8th National Championship for the Fighting Sioux hockey team. Which would I believe tie Michigan for most all time. If I am wrong on that, please let me know. SSK should know that stat for sure. Yep, I can see that happening. And it really shouldn’t be that hard to do either……………….now back to work.
