  1. I remember reading this article where Schultz says he wasn't fighter before getting drafted by the Flyers and going to Salem. Fights in his two games and the rest is history!!!! Hammer Time
  2. Gavin's post on Facebook was just like him - pure class. I am very proud and excited to announce that I will be joining the Rapid Cith Rush in the Echl for the 2018-2019 season. Allison and I are very excited to take this next step in our hockey journey! It's also a very bittersweet feeling because it means I will be leaving Roanoke and the Rail Yard Dawgs. The community of Roanoke and The Dawgs Organization is nothing but 1st class in everything they do. You guys absorbed my family and myself without question and made us feel like we were apart of yours. Roanoke will always hold a special place in my heart and I just wanted to thank everyone for the hospitality and all the support. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I will never forget the fans, player, and staff of my 1st pro team you guys are the best!
  3. Very well deserved. If you have ever talked to him, you could "feel" how much pride he put into his work. First class guy.
  4. Happy Birthday Roanokehockey!

  5. Interesting Column from Aaron McFarling in today's Roanoke Times. Interesting Points I do think having local owners BEFORE the announcement would have helped them tremendously. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
  6. Did anyone notice Bob McGinn's comment on Facebook: "We are just getting started Dawg fans... more exciting signings to be announced soon... I am pumped for this season!!" Exciting times ahead.
  7. Virginia Tech ice hockey has a "big announcement" scheduled Friday - it may be connected,
  8. Man I hate to read that. Good luck to Matt. We will certainly miss him in Roanoke
  9. Aaron Mcfarling of the Roanoke Times did a story on that topic last year. Odd Jobs
  10. That's good stuff! Imagine being a kid and getting to skate with NHL players.
  11. Pretty sure that's a Berglund Center issue - you can't play road games if you don't have ice. At least the team will have the Lancerlot to practice, which is a plus over the past.
  12. Very well deserved!!! The future is bright.
  13. Yes he did. Greg Roberts said Gandara called him this morning before the protected list was released and told him he was hanging it up. Per Greg, David was playing hurt much of this year and has a couple of surgeries scheduled in the near future and just said his body couldn't take it anymore. He went on to ask Greg to tell the folks in Roanoke how much he enjoyed playing here ("he said he couldn't believe how much fun he had playing in Roanoke"). Best wishes, young man. We enjoyed having you here as well.
  14. What's the league definition of a veteran? Vernace has played 100 games in the ECHL/SPHL. Thanks in advance.
