Indiana Ice Play An Early Game and Cab Morris Gets Interviewed

February 3, 2010

It is around 1pm when I’m writing this and it’s odd to think that the Indiana Ice have already played a full game. This morning the Ice took on the Youngstown Phantoms with the puck drop time scheduled for 10 am EST. What makes this situation more interesting is that 4,526 showed up to watch the game. Either this is a big public event in the town or there is really nothing better to do at 10 am on a Wednesday in Youngstown. You decide.

The Ice handily defeated the Phantoms, who apparently missed their wake up call, 5-1. Anthony Bitetto started the scoring just 37 seconds into the game and from there Indiana never looked back with goals also coming from Max Cook, Nick Bailen, Bitetto (again), and Kevin Goumas. Cab Morris was near perfect in net with 33 saves on 34 shots which earned him first star honors.

On the topic of Morris, I’ve recently come across an interview with the Ice netminder. The whole interview can be found here, but some of the better parts of this article include the fact that he’s named after former Virginia governor William H. Cabell of whom he is related to. He also says that Ice head coach Jeff Blashill has helped him improve greatly this season. Cab says that he will either attend Dartmouth in 2010 or 2011, and if he chooses the latter he will return to the Ice for another season. Finally, I just wanted to note he has been invited to a Blackhawks prospect camp in the past and I’m really hoping that one day we’ll see him in between the pipes for the Hawks.
