One-Timers (Dec. 14)

December 14, 2009

Five links for evening reading:

If you’re a stat nerd like I am, then you’ll love the blog Behind The Net. Recently there was a post on the USHL in which they discussed the signifigant rise in both former players in the NCAA and NHL. Formerly the USHL was regarded as a failed attempt to repeat what was being done with the CHL, but the numbers BTN is putting forth show that the USHL is now one of the top developmental leagues in North America.

1070 The Fan recently posted videos from the Indiana Ice Coaches Show.  [1070 The Fan]

Everyone talks about “The Miracle on Ice” but few realize that another “miracle” happened in 1960 when the U.S. Men took home the gold in Hockey. Forgotten Miracle is a new documentary that covers the story of the 1960 team and the struggles they faced. [Forgotten Miracle]

It appears that Komets goaltender, Tim Haun will face a suspension for his late game actions in Port Huron. Haun ended the game with 22 penalty minutes along which included a baseball bat-like swing at Port Huron’s Derek Patrosso. [Journal Gazette]

I have been a hockey fan since birth and in all my time of going to games, this goal by Marian Hossa has to be the greatest goal I’ve ever seen live.

Finally, expect a major face lift to this blog in the next few weeks and some new recurring features. Also the next installment of Punk Rock and Hockey will be out by week’s end. If anyone has stories, photos or news from the South Bend Crossover Tournament contact me via twitter or through email.
