  1. Shawn Bednard‏ @CallMeBednard FollowingFollowing @CallMeBednard More I’m sitting next to legendary NHL enforcer Pete Worrell at a bar, and he’s my coworker. Life is CRAZY.
  2. Marksmen signee Nolan Sheeran will be in camp with ECHL Adirondack. I wish him well.
  3. I"m glad they are filing positions they think are needed. I'm not sure I see a difference between an Account Executive and a Director of Corporate Partnerships. Maybe one will double as an equipment manager. Just kidding!!
  4. This is big news. Media access to Fayetteville players and coaches has been almost non-existent in the past. I'm looking forward to listening to the Marksmen Radio Network. If nothing else it means I never have to listen to the cry-baby Peoria announcer ever again. Just an observation on the call letters. Around these parts most folks think of Motorsports Racing Network when they see or hear MRN
  5. Wow! I just noticed one of our protected players, Andrew DeBrincat has been invited to the Rockford IceHogs training camp on a PTO (AHL Affiliate of the Chicago Black Hawks). I know he showed some skills in the few games he played for the Marksmen but not sure they were AHL skills. (not that I would know) I suppose the fact his brother plays for the Black Hawks could play into the organizations decision to give Andrew the experience of an AHL camp. On another note-- Andrew was a teammate for the last four years in college of our recently signed goalie, Alex Murray at American International College. BTW, I don't think we'll get to see DeBrincat in Fayetteville this year but we can hope.
  6. I was thinking the same thing. I'm looking forward to the season but can't help but wonder how a group of mostly 1st year players can possibly match up against Macon and Huntsville with both teams returning an almost intact roster from last season. But now the biggest concern for the team will be the economic impact due to Hurricane Florence. Unfortunately, the attendance levels probably go back to the 2016/17 levels caused in part by Hurricane Matthew.
  7. Twitter clue: Traveled all across the country during his young career. Facebook clue: This player won a championship last season playing for multiple teams. Shawn may have me on this one but I'll throw out the name C.J. Hayes. He was on the Watertown Wolves (FHL) championship team (clue). He played for multiple teams in 2017/18 (clue), Lake Superior St., Mississippi River Kings and Watertown. He is only 23 so that could fit with his young career. (clue) I don't know if being born in Florida and playing in Illinois, North Dakota, Michigan, Mississippi and New York qualifies as all over the country (clue) but it is a lot of travel. Stay safe Fayetteville.
  8. The player I found scored .58 points per game. Of course 33.3 ppg in hockey is unrealistic. A typo by Shawn or something to throw us off?
  9. Clues for new player announcement for Tues. Sep 11 Twitter clue:Good morning, guessers! We've got a junior hockey fraternity building here in Fayetteville, and this player averaged 33.3 points per game in his time there. Who is this? Facebook clue:New Week, New Tease! This forward has spent his entire playing career in one state, from high school to professional. That's four leagues! Who is this? The likely player is Tim Kielich. He played HS, Juniors, College and 2 pro games with Adirondack (all in one state NY). His new teammates Shane Bennett, Darren McCormick and Nolan Sheeran (possibly others) played for Buffalo JR. Sabres in Juniors (the fraternity part of the clue). I'm not sure what the "33.3 points per game in his time there" clue means. https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/146481/tim-kielich Now back to Hurricane Prep.
  10. "Sorry, didnt realize everyone didnt follow all\some teams (or players) on social media" I follow all SP team's social media but not any of the player's. I'm pretty sure I'm not interested in the things they are interested in. I'd miss all retirements if they only got posted on the player's social media. No big deal. From his (Chris Joseph) facebook yesterday Just wanted to take a second to thank everyone for all the texts and support I’ve received over the last few days. This decision to stop playing the game I love has weighed very heavy on me lately and people reaching out to me has meant way more than words can ever describe. I’ll cherish every bond, friendship, and memory I’ve created throughout my 21 years of playing. This chapter might be ending but I still have a whole book left to write
  11. His teammate Brody Heleno. Clues on facebook were---"One last teaser for the week! Tomorrow's player will have plenty of familiar faces in Training Camp from the last four years, and is familiar with wearing the orange and black." Twitter clues:It's Teaser Time! This player spent a year around Elite company, and found the Bay after a childhood near some really great lakes. Who is this?! Makimaa grew up an hour from Detroit (Great Lakes) -- made his way to Bay State Breakers in the USPHL Elite league.
  12. My guess for the Friday announcement is Derek Makimaa-- if right I owe credit to a guesser on facebook for steering me toward Salem St. If wrong it's all his fault. https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/240432/derek-makimaa
  13. I wish him well. He was put in an almost impossible situation last year. If he can eliminate that early, cheap goal he always seemed to allow, work on his rebound control. and have a solid defense in front of him he should do well.
  14. I can't vouch for you with the landscaping, etc... but with the t-shirt slinging I can attest you are first rate. Nothing gets the crowd at the Crown fired up like your golf cart coming to a sliding stop and then the sling-shot band gets pulled back with a t-shirt aimed towards them. I was disappointed they curtailed the t-shirt slinging last year. I always enjoyed handing the ones I snagged off to a youngster.
  15. I'm liking the information that Shawn Bednard / Director of Media Relations & Broadcaster for the Marksmen, is getting out on twitter, FB, instagram & the web site. He has been showing up at community events to get the brand out in the public. I'm looking forward for that enthusiasm to carry over with the game day staff this year.
  16. No prob. Once in a great while the following site has the scoop over twitter or facebook. oursportscentral.com
  17. "As for other options...*checks unsigned guys from 16-17 17-18 Rivermen*..." Eric Levine is off the board. Quad City just announced the signing.
  18. We are down to the end of the protected list. I'd like to see both Jeke and Palmer return (if they are the type of locker room guys Kallechy is looking for). Also, maybe we can trade the rights for Patterson to get the proverbial future considerations. I'm also curious to see where Flaherty, Russell, Bauer and Doyle wind up. I'm no scout but I think all 4 can make a contribution in the SP.
  19. I think Thomas Pope's twitter account gives the name of the Friday announcement. Looks like a pretty good signing.
  20. That would be the one. I was hoping Shawn would dig it up and post it. Saw it on twitter. I almost felt bad for the goalie, Zoltan Hetenyi. He was doing what any goalie would have done by leaving the crease to collect the puck behind the net and then you can see in the video he winds up screwing himself into the ice trying to reverse course. That entire game was a close and fun game to watch -- with it being one of our 12 wins. This was one of the very few lucky hockey bounces the Marksmen got last year.
  21. Twitter: It's Teaser Time! This silhouette, who is a male that plays hockey, once scored a goal against future Marksmen teammate @Jasonpooch...but lost 7-4. #FearTheFox Facebook:Activate your brainpower early this week - it's teaser time! This returning player is familiar with 14 percent of the wonders of the world, has 14 career playoff points, and had 14 PIMs in 2013. Happy guessing! Easy one. I'll give more clues instead of the answer. The game in question was played on Nov. 2, 2017. He also had 2 assists in the game. Future teammate Michael Casale had a goal for the other team. This returning player scored his one goal as a Marksmen when he crossed the blue line and attempted to send the puck around the boards to the back of the net. The goalie for KNX left the crease in anticipation of the puck going behind the net. At about the blue line the puck hit one of the trick spots on the Crown boards and took about a 45 degree turn and headed directly for the net. The goalie couldn't reverse course in time and the puck settled into the net inside the post for a goal that helped the Marksmen beat KNX 6-4 on Mar. 16, 2018
  22. Roanoke vs Knoxville is shaping up to be a physical match-up
  23. Nice going vicvegas you tried to steer us in the right direction. I was just too lazy to do the research. Chalk one up for Shawn - he got one over on us. I did have my hopes up for Vance though.
