  1. Signed Forward Cody Brown. https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/117632/cody-brown
  2. Changes are coming! Defenseman Troy Henley waived. Defenseman Nikita Kovesnikovs waived. Forward Calvin Miska waived. http://stats.pointstreak.com/transactions.html?leagueid=215&seasonid=18479
  3. Only defenseman I can think of thats been released in our league is Jake Schultz. Not sure the reason QC waived him. Big physical defenseman.
  4. Its also on the FHL transaction page:https://www.federalhockey.com/stats#/182/transactions?division_id=5318
  5. Here is the full shootout courtesy of The Dawg Park Facebook page. Kelley made one pretty good glove save on I believe it was Mac Jansen. Full Shootout
  6. Roanoke (8-9) will be back at The Berglund Center Saturday night after a hard fought 3-2 win over Knoxville to face Fayetteville. It will be ugly sweaters jersey night. After the game the jerseys will be auctioned off. It's also teddy bear toss so don't forget your teddy bears to throw on the ice after the first Roanoke goal. Go Dawgs! Ugly Sweater Jerseys Teddy Bear Toss
  7. And another one John Torchetti. Brings the # to 6!!
  8. I'd be looking in the same state you're already in. Christian Pavlas and Henry Dill of the Carolina Thunderbirds. Last time I looked Pavlas had multiple shutouts in a row and a gaa of 1.00. Henry Dill if i'm not mistaken is signed now in Macon but was as an EBUG. Wouldn't have to go far. There was plenty of good goalies in the SPHL but Troy Davenport, Mason Pulde, and Andrew D' Agostini has recently been put on team suspensions. Since then D'Agostini has a couple wins in the ECHL with Reading.
  9. December 17, 2018 - Defenseman Alex Adams was claimed off waivers by Worcester. Looks like we will have to find help elsewhere.
  10. Not sure of the quality of hockey in Allan Cup Hockey. Never seen any of it but he has the far better stats of other goalies on his team. I do know thats where our former goalie Ryan De Melo is playing now and has a 2.17 gaa in 6 games.
  11. Add another one forgot about Mike Keenan playing for us in the 70's.
  12. Someone else just reminded me of Claude Noel on Dawgs Fan page. He coached Roanoke Valley Rebels and also coached the Winnipeg Jets a few years ago but is currently a scout with New Jersey. So we can say 3 current coaches and 1 former.
  13. Yup, Scott Gordon is now the interim coach for Philadelphia and John Tortorella is head coach of Columbus. You can also throw in Rick Kowalsky, he is an assistant coach in the NHL for New Jersey.
  14. Exactly, i'm here for the good and the bad. Our frustration in Roanoke was before the coaching change we just played the same way game after game with hardly any personnel changes or on our strategy. You can't come out every game with the same strategy thats not working and expect to just start winning. Also felt our players weren't giving their all out there. We finally signed a good coach and I might talk negative about how we play in a game or losing streak but mostly i'm just blowing off steam like SJSharkies said and just venting. I can take losing if our guys are out there hustling and looking like they are playing hard. That just wasn't the case with Ftorek. But I can't speak for Marksmen fans who have been through so many coaching changes I can't keep count of. That definately has to be frustrating. All I can comment is on how I think they have been playing this year against us. So far, they have played us hard in every game and if i'm not mistaken beating us in the season series still. In my opinion, both of our teams are certainly way better then last year. This year it looks like quite a few teams are still trying to find their stride and struggling. Thats what I don't understand about some people that thinks talking about all the bad stuff means you're not a true fan. The boards are here to talk about your team whether its good or bad. Everyone is welcome to their opinions. It doesn't mean they are right or wrong with whatever they believe but its nice to have other fans to vent and celebrate with. Fayetteville is suppose to be our biggest rival but whenever we aren't playing each other i'm always rooting for you. I can't say that about any other professional sports teams. But one last thing its good we don't talk about our NHL teams here because my Flyers are killing me and have no clue whats going on with the coaching fiasco that happened today!
  15. Reserve just means he is out of the lineup. They are allowed 20 people on the team in the ECHL. So they have more roster spaces and whoever is put on reserve is not going to be playing until they take them off of it again. Its not like the injured reserve.
  16. December 16, 2018 - Defenseman Alex Adams waived from ECHL Maine.
  17. You of all people should know defenseMAN only means one, not all the defenseMEN.
  18. WDBJ7 WSLS Nice seeing all our media getting coverage of the Dawgs.
  19. I totally agree. They were fighting hard and you have a young team. With Evansville, Pensacola, and QC struggling all you need to do is improve throughout the season and by the end anything can happen. You can't really go off your losing streak against Birmingham and Macon. Macon beat us repeatedly and took them losing Ruby before we beat them. In my opinion Macon is tougher then Birmingham from what i've seen but they both are good. I can't say that about Peoria who seems to just beat up on Evansville and QC every game. They don't even play a top team until after atleast January 31st.
  20. Who was with me? I feel Dion faked me out just as bad as the goalie, on his shootout goal. I definately wasn't expecting him to put a move on like that and score but was one of the best moves i've seen. Surprised the hell out of me just as much as Kelley. Love the enthusiasm of Caffrey while he is out there and impressed me in the shootout. You could tell the guys were tired playing short defenseman but they gave it their all and pulled out the win. Back to .500!! Go Dawgs!!!!
  21. The ECHL roster limit really puts the SPHL at a disadvantage, especially doing the moves so late in the week where its hard to find players. They are allowed 20 players. 18 of them can be skaters. For the first month they can have 19 skaters and 21 overall. Which means teams can actually hold on to 4 goalies if they wanted. After I told you Reading still had two goalies when Charlotte called one up, they signed two more from the SPHL with Charlie Millen and Andrew D'Agostini. Players usually just practice until something happens and they are needed to finally fill in. Brad Barone can't get a start in Norfolk. He got a few starts when Reichenbach was called up but ever since he was sent back down they play Reichenbach every game. He has given up games of 8,7, and 6 goals and still starts over Barone.
  22. John Gustafsson had 2 assists in his first game with Norfolk. Ty Reichenbach stopped 45 of 48 shots for a 5-3 win for Norfolk over Wheeling.
  23. I'm pretty sure he served it. If he didn't someone did. The penalty in the boxscore is wrong. Tolles didn't actually get a penalty that gave us a power play. His penalty was actually a 10 minute misconduct not a 2 minute penalty for running over the referee going after a Roanoke player. Thats what the Knoxville announcer called and he was surprised at just the misconduct penalty too.
