Friday Night Round-Up

Since we’re in need of a new thread, here’s a look at what Blackhawk prospects did on Friday night. 

Before that, let me point out this story that Dave Morris linked to in our comments.  I didn’t find the section about the Big Three (Allan Muir basically reaffirms everything we’ve been saying since the story broke.  Tagging is the issue.  No need to panic here people.) nearly as interesting as the owners and general managers’ complaining about the price of composite sticks.  

You can’t watch a game these days without seeing somebody’s stick lying in a million pieces across the ice.  Muir says teams are spending upwards of $500,000 in sticks per season.  That’s certainly not an expense that existed 15 years ago.  Amazing. 

 –The IceHogs and Joseph Fallon held off the Chicago Wolves on Friday night with a 1-0 in Rockford.  A 0-0 game halfway through the third period turned when Bracken Kearns banged home a rebound off a Brian Connelly point shot.  Danny Bois was also credited with an assist. 

The Rockford power-play was 0-for-7 on the night but it wasn’t due to a lack of chances.  The IceHogs peppered the net all night with 43 shots on net but Wolves goalie Drew MacIntyre had an answer each time.

Joseph Fallon continued as the IceHogs starting goalie and was named second star in stopping all 26 shots.

Kyle Beach was a non-factor in Spokane’s 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings.

Byron Froese and the Everett SilverTips were shutout 6-0 by the Tri-City Americans.  Froese was a -1 on the night. 

Dylan Olsen had 4 shots on goal, but didn’t register a point in Minnesota-Duluth’s 4-3 overtime win over the University of Minnesota.  Dan DeLisle didn’t dress for the third time in four games. 

Billy Sweatt had an assist in Colorado College’s 4-3 win over Robert Morris University.

    Good work, gentlemen, as always.

    BTW watched Icehogs-Wolves on the webfeed. Thought Simon Danis-Pepin looked good doing his job. Wonder if he’ll get his chance with the big club soon.

    In other news, some paper-thin rumor about the Hawks trading for F Ryan Shannon and D Alexandre Picard by sending Barker to Ottawa, has been floating around. Doubtful either one of these players (both FAs in June) are of interest, and doubtful either would make the Rockford lineup.

    The fact that ESPN actually posted this jetsam tells you how desperate the journos are for ‘news’.

    Bob McKenzie, seeking to boost sales of his new hockey book, continues to flog the dead ‘Hawks need to trade somebody NOW’ pony, and is grasping at any straw he can. He is currently obsessing over Brent Sopel.

    Back to our regular programming….Niemi or Huet in goal vs the Oil? Danny Sedin is supposed to be back with Nuckznayshun, Eh on Sunday, so ya gotta think Q’s gonna wanna have Cristo on tap.
