    That or to show favoritism to Peoria! 19 games, 66% of their season has been to Evansville and Quad City.

    The Dawgs (14-14) try to get back on track after losing both games from a home and home series with Fayetteville. The schedule will be the same this weekend as last. Play at home tonight and travel to Fayetteville for a Saturday night game. The Dawgs will also be playing a game with an early starting time on Monday at 1:05pm et. against the Knoxville Ice Bears. So come out and support our Dawgs as they fight for some much needed points on Friday and Monday afternoon. Go Dawgs!!

    Hey there hockey fans. I wanted to pass along an opportunity to those of you who my be in or around Peoria. Central Illinois Thunder is a sled hockey team. It is for all ages. Players usually suffer from some sort of paralysis, spinal injury or defect, amputation, or other lower body limitation. Sled (or Sledge) hockey is a sport played sitting down on a small sled. Here is the Wikipedia entry. In international competition it is know are Para Ice Hockey. It is a medal sport in the Winter Paralympics. The sled is mounted on two skate blades. The player is strapped into the sled and uses two short hockey sticks with cleats screwed onto the butt-ends to propel themselves. The action is similar to rowing a boat. The Central Illinois Thunder Sled Hockey (there is a Facebook page) is FREE for anyone who wants to play. They practice at Memorial Arena in Pekin every Sunday at 2pm. and once a mnth in Bloomington. Just show up and ask for "Tim". Everyone will know who you are talking about.They have players that come from as far away as Galesburg. One fellow is 60. Some of the kids are in Kindergarten. For some of the younger kids, thee are handles that can be installed and volunteers will help push them around on the ice. If you know anyone that might be interested in playing, please have them check out the FB page or just come to a practice and watch (or better yet, get on a sled!)

    A little disclosure... I never thought I would be able to play hockey. As a person with a neurological disorder, I couldn't even get my feet into hockey skates. After the amputation of my left leg...even moreso. I played road hockey (goalie) in my tennis shoes a few times, but that was it. Then I was invited to a game. The next week I was in a sled. The highlight of my week is now those 90 minutes every Sunday afternoon.

    Here's the Roanoke Times story. Dan doesn't pull any punches on some of the calls tonight: "They’ve got divers all over the place. We have some pride and our guys get up, so we don’t get those calls. “I don’t know what to do. Maybe we have to get our guys to start laying on the ground and whining more. Maybe that’s the answer.” Roanoke Times story

    It was a great win. I cannot remember the last time a Fayetteville team won 8 in a row. Seems like everyone is giving 100%-plus. I hope tomorrow brings it to 9.

    Not many teams could take on a vet spot with 501 games played. Maybe the Ice Flyers were the only one's willing to take a look at him.

    I don't know the rule but I have found nothing about having to pass waivers after a suspension. Seems to me he has been out of the league for almost two years now and was not protected by anybody so he would be fair game to any team. This might be right but i'm not taking it as true because of Bus League Hockey's sources says thats the rule. Just look at this article from them put out the same day as the Jason Price article. They also say their FHL source gave them this list of players who have been called up or failed to report. Half of the players just played there a few games last season and counting them as call ups for this season. Few examples i've seen is Matt Beer for Roanoke. They have him on the failure to report list but he was on Roanoke's protected list and signed to play overseas sometime early in the summer. So there is no way he would have signed back with the FHL. They got Maxime Guyon as a player on loan when he was also on our protected list and played with us all along again this year. Also have Jimmy Soper who was called up last year by the Mayhem and still playing for them. Finally, they have Craig Skudalski on the list and he's been playing in the ECHL with Wheeling all year. There is plenty more on the list just like them. Took me just reading the names on the list to know their source is not credible. https://busleaguehockey.com/2019/01/17/how-hard-has-each-fhl-team-been-hit-by-sphl-call-ups-and-players-refusing-to-report/

    Thank you for the welcome. I agree with you. A general statement regarding why the player is out. I'm not looking for details. When I see the projected lines and see the hottest player on the team is not playing and on top of that lose 1-0 makes me wonder. I assumed minor injury.

    I wouldn't look too much into the numbers. They just recycle the same jerseys out and back in as they need to. We have been using the same numbers for years. If someone comes back for us thats jersey has been taken away and given to somebody else they then give the old guy the number back and give the newest guy a new number. Thats how its been going with our team atleast.

    My guess Porter would be gone. You can't miss what you've never seen. How Perry has been playing I don't really expect a start by Porter. But for now looks like you're safe and Adirondack are keeping 3.

    Shouldn't it say "PERRY and the Marksmen returned home Saturday..." instead of Kelley? I hate typos.

    Yeah you can tell Guyon isn't 100%. Like I said in another post, we may need to make a trade or two to shake things up.
