  1. Video highlights: youtu.be/WeBLhjUphKo The Havoc Retake First Place with 5-4 Comeback Win Against the Thunderbolts HUNTSVILLE, AL – The Havoc erase a three-goal deficit to grab the 5-4 overtime victory against the Evansville Thunderbolts to split the weekend series. “We like to say we play Havoc hockey,” said goaltender Tyler Steel. “We play a gritty hard-nosed game and always play right to the buzzer.” In the first, Huntsville scored the game’s first goal for the fifth time this season against the Evansville Thunderbolts when Sy Nutkevitch registered his first of the night. It all started with Nolan Kaiser throwing one towards the net with the Montreal Que. native deflecting the puck off his foot and into the back of the net at 2:25. Continue recap from huntsvillehavoc.com:
  2. Does Peoria play any teams besides expansions?
  3. I wouldn't complain if he got a lifetime ban.
  4. Several times in that game, there were punches thrown at play stoppage, and everyone just skated back to the benches with no penalties. Over the last half of the game, hits got more violent from both sides. The two fights before Craigen got ejected were after the initial melee had dispersed as players were picking up equipment. The ref and linesmen were not paying attention and didn't get control of the players. They did it twice. During the 2 minutes of play following that, Price was charging all over the ice intent on hitting someone, the ref just wanted off the ice. I swear I saw him try to sneak out through the penalty box while play was still ongoing.
  5. Not unheard of for criminal charges to be filed. This just happened: http://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2017/2/27/14751616/erie-community-college-hockey-assault-referee-hit-video. Personnel on the bench know there is some risk, but I don't think there is an assumed risk of injury resulting from a player intentionally shooting a puck at the bench.
  6. In an interesting co-incidence, the referee for the game against Knoxville was Chris Waterstradt. Back in 2012/2013, Chris Waterstradt played 17 games with the Augusta RiverHawks, where Jason Price was an Assistant Captain. Waterstradt is currently a referee for the AHL, ECHL, SPHL, and USHL.

  8. Isn't the first tiebreaker regulation wins? If so, the Kings only need "one of the following" to clinch.
  9. TwistedBrass updates the first post with all pertinent roster info. According to this, he was called up 2/9.
  10. John Daniels, on loan to ECHL Wheeling, scores a natural hat trick in a span of 57 seconds. He may be gone a while. http://www.wheelingnailers.com/news/daniels-tricks-mallards-under-minute
  11. PJStar video of Price firing the shot into the bench and ensuing fight: http://www.pjstar.com/article/20170312/VIDEO/303129993 or here: http://player.tout.com/pjstar/faz41t
  12. Aggressor in last 5 minutes is automatic.
  13. Millin got his first pro goal and assist (for 2nd star). 1st star was Rob Simpson for a Gordie Howe hat trick.
  14. Billett was ready to fight halfway through the 2nd (after giving up 5 goals). Ref lost control of this one - scrum after every stoppage. Several boardings, that led to fights with no resulting penalties. It finally blew up then 2:40 to go with a scrum after stoppage. After it cleared, Donahoe slashed a stick Kaiser was about to pick up, so Kaiser nailed him. Two other fights broke out after that before the ref / linesmen sent everyone to the benches. Meanwhile, Scott and Craigen got tossed for verbal abuse. Everything calmed down, except Price. He came back out intent on hitting someone - charging across the ice several times before he finally got the puck and fired it at the Havoc bench. Luckily, he hit the glass and it didn't go into the bench or crowd. Witzel pummeled him pretty good over it. The call on Price at the game was a 2 minute unsportsmanlike, and a 10 minute misconduct. It was clearly intent to injure. He should get a nice suspension over it. During this stoppage, I think Billet did something along the bench I didn't see, because the Havoc bench was pretty upset with him. The goalies decided to settle it.
