One-Timers (Dec. 3)

December 3, 2009

Not a lot today, but some interesting hockey-related news coming from around the state.

I’m not sure who asked, but the Fort Wayne Komets do not currently have an interest in hosting an outdoor game. Additionally, the Komets just played their 48th consecutive game on Thanksgiving Day. Blake Sebring thinks more IHL teams should follow suit. [News-Sentinel]

The Indiana Ice will be hosting the USHL All-Star Game on January 26th. They just recently unveiled this wonderful logo and announced that there will be an Indianapolis hockey alumni game featuring players from the Racers, Checkers and Ice before the All-Star Game. [Indiana Ice]

This is a bit dated, but Roman Augustoviz recaps an interesting conversation he had with University of Minnesota Men’s Hockey coach, Don Lucia. Apparently one of the Big Ten hockey programs made a push over the summer to form a Big Ten hockey conference that would have been composed of the five Big Ten schools (Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State and Wisconsin) along with Notre Dame, Miami and Bowling Green. As a Big Ten fan, I’m slightly saddened this didn’t happen. [Goal Gophers]

The IHL has assumed control of the Dayton Gems as the original ownership “haven’t abided by all the bylaws.” This creates an interesting stability situation in Dayton for a team in their first year, the IHL claims new ownership will be in place by the weekend. [Journal Gazette]

Justin A. Cohn (second featured article in this post!) writes about the stability of the IHL after the issues that have taken place with a number of teams in the league. I am an avid supporter of the IHL and I hope they make themselves into a viable “AA” minor league. [Journal Gazette]

Finally, I’m looking for some sweater/uniform concepts from my readership. I plan on posting some of mine and I’d love to see your ideas.
