The IceMen are riding some positive momentum after a couple of big wins at home, despite a record number of injuries. Meanwhile, “IceMen Insights” is setting records too, with our longest episode yet…
This week, Derick and I discuss the team’s back-to-back home victories last weekend, Josh Beaulieu’s strong play, Dan Gendur’s recent improvement, some good news on the injury front, more IceMen roster moves made by the Blues and Rivermen, Rich Kromm as a teacher, Dylan Clarke’s potential, and what Allen York’s arrival means for the future of the IceMen goaltending platoon.
Other topics include the death of a former IceMen player (seriously), Star Wars Night jersey auction results, black players in IceMen history, ongoing issues at the Ford Center, busy nights in Downtown Evansville, and the possible end of a streak that dates back to the inaugural season of IceMen hockey.
Plus: Sissy hockey player names, Saturday’s 4th Annual Teddy Bear Toss, the “arrow attack” at the end of last week’s show, penalty box hecklers, Derick’s new haircut, a “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week” dedicated to Stephen Rickard, trying to send Brad Perkins to the All-Star Game, and a new end-of-show sign-off inspired by Brian Patafie!
