Who's In, Who's Out *Updated 4/20/07*


Nathan Martz scored the lone goal for the Stockton Thunder in their final game of the season, falling to the Idaho Steelheads. Nathan finished the post season with 2 goals and an assist in 6 games.


The Cedar Rapids Rough Riders took their second post-season victory in a 1-0 overtime knock over the Ohio Jr. Bluejackets after demolishing them 8-0 in the first game. Future 'Cat Dan Dries did not score and had 3 shots and had picked up a slashing call for two minutes.

Like the Green Bay Gamblers to the Indiana Ice, the Omaha Lancers fell 4-2 last night to their opponent, the Des Moines Buccaneers. Will O'Neill was even in the match-up registering no shots or penalties.

Updates on any games will come as available tonight.



Looks can be deceiving but tonight looked pretty easy for Future 'Cat Matt DiGirolamo as he had to turn aside a mere 16 shots over the course of sixty minutes for the shutout victory with his and fellow Future 'Cat, Blake Kessel's, Waterloo Blackhawks over the Chicago Steel, in their first game of the Clark Cup Playoffs. With less than 10 minutes to play in the game the Steel still had not generated double-digit shots on goal - in the span of the final ten minutes DiGirolamo had to turn away as many shots as he had in the previous fifty minutes. Kessel finished the game with two shots on goal.


Tyler Scott and Kevin Truelson are hoping to close out their opening round and lead their Bakersfield Condors to the win tonight, and the series, over the Fresno Falcons. That game is nearing the end of the first period seeing Bakersfield take the 1-0 lead. *Last update of the night - Bakersfield wins 4-0. Truelson and Scott are both +1 and both had three shots on the night - Scott had two minor penalties.

USA Hockey:

The US U-18 Team is still alive after thrashing Latvia 8-0. They will gladly face Canada again Friday morning. James vanRiemsdyk added two helpers in the game versus Latvia - the second time he has done such and he has delivered two goals over the last two games giving him a 2-4-6 scoring line.

Some UNH Men's Hockey Blog Notes:

We have recently been added to the '' site which is part of the '' network of sites. We have also been syndicated for some time on the excellent resource of '' and we will soon link to the 'NHL Hockey News Blog'. You'll be able to find all of these links as well as many others pertinent to the University of New Hampshire Hockey Community - otherwise known as Wildcat Nation! Speaking of which a new site is kicking-off, and I wish them the best, as it will bring all of the sports of Wildcat Nation under its umbrella - although I cannot currently find it, anybody?

Go 'Cats!
