News and Notes

There is an article on USHR that says Lincoln coach Steve Johnson has applied for the Sioux women's head coaching job.

Ferguson focused on rebuilding Lynx.

Ryan Dingle decides to turn pro.

A visit with Alex Kangas.

I still don't think it's sunk in all the way that I was drafted by an NHL team. Some of the guys give me grief, but I just try to be modest about it. It is a dream come true. When you stop and think about all the players who start off at young ages ... to even be thought of as someone who could be drafted, it is a big deal for any player.
An article on former Austin/Omaha coach, Frank Serratore.

Last but not least, a video of the goalie fight in the Sioux City-Waterloo game.

A.J. Bucchino (Des Moines) signed a contract with the Augusta Lynx of the ECHL. Bucchino will be re-united with former coach Bob Ferguson.

Hayes Has Options

U.S. Under-18 Team forward Jimmy Hayes, a late ’89 who is currently in the 11th grade, has been invited back to the NTDP next year, even though he will have aged out and be ineligible for the World Under-18s.

Hayes, who is expected at BC in the fall of ’08, has RULED OUT playing in the USHL. His draft rights are owned by the Ohio Junior Bluejackets.

There is a chance he could return to Nobles for his senior year. Needless to say, he can expect heavy pressure from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He's going to visit the QMJHL in the playoffs.

Hayes is draft eligible in 2008.
