A few things…take two. The dreaded WordPress monster ate the first version of this post.
One, I’ve been in contact with Anthony Felice and team officials, and hope to have a story on him sometime this week. Really neat story that he got into a game after all that time…so stay tuned for that.
Two, I’ve got a few ECHL.com related things to pass along. First off, you can check out my story on Phoenix Coyotes goalie Jason LaBarbera here.
Outside of that, the Connecticut Whale have been kind enough to allow me to come for the Whale Bowl at Rentschler Field on February 19. They’ll have three outdoor hockey games that day — a college game, a legends/celebrities game and an AHL game between Connecticut and Providence — and I’ll be working on a story that focuses on the impact that ECHL’ers have made on this hockey season’s outdoor games. I, as you know, have already spoken to Capitals and Penguins players about the Winter Classic.
That will, however, pull me away from covering Trenton home games on February 19 and 20 against Elmira and Wheeling, respectively.
I’m also heading back to Nashville, TN on March 22nd to cover the Oilers-Predators game and speak with Francis Bouillon and Pete Horachek…which will hopefully come a few days after covering UFC 128 in Newark, assuming I get approved for credentials for that. That, uhhh…obviously would not be for ECHL.com, but would be awesome.
