  1. Here's the six finalists: http://railyarddawgs.pointstreaksites.com/view/roanokerailyarddawgs/news-1147/news_508564
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. Very well deserved. If you have ever talked to him, you could "feel" how much pride he put into his work. First class guy.
  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.
  15. I think Wetzel's red jersey went for $700 although that pales in comparison to his military jersey that went for $2,000 earlier in the year..
  16. Understand. I think it's just an additional layer of caution in the process. The thing I like about these particular auctions versus Ebay is that no one can "snipe" you by waiting until the very last second to submit a bid. In this system, you have an additional 5 minutes to respond. I can't count the number of Ebay auction I've lost by sniping. Congratulations on your jersey, BTW.
  17. Sounds like a standard, automated e-mail. No need to worry. I believe e-mails are typically sent out to all bidders shortly after the close of the auction and invoices are sent out shortly afterwards. That's the way it occurred last year, anyway.
  18. Reminder - auction ends Monday starting at 7:00. Although, all of the jerseys have hit the $100 reserve, there are still some very reasonably priced ones available (compared to the live auctions, anyway).
  19. From the Wheeling Nailers Facebook Page: Wishing Jeremy Beirnes the best of luck as he steps away from professional hockey to become the Head Coach of the U15 AAA Camrose Red Wings! Wishing him all the best from his Roanoke fans.
  20. Looks like they heard you, Canucks!
  21. One could tell last year that Reichenbach was something special. Wish him nothing but the best. But also glad the Dawgs acquired Brad Barone this season - he can be something special as well although he's 4 inches shorter than Ty.
  22. Thank you for your in-game play-by-play. It's interesting to me that Trudel refused to take the early time-out when it was apparent that Big Mo was swinging the other way. From a complete outsider, that appears to be a pretty serious error. Still a lot of hockey to be played.
