Update: Lincoln Journal Star has an article on Bencurik's resignation.
“I just felt like I needed to make a change and wasn’t making what I wanted to, so I’ll try something different,” Bencurik said in a phone interview late Tuesday.
“Resigning had been on my mind for a while, and Jimmy and I weren’t clicking like we both probably hoped we would, so I decided it was best if I just step aside,” Bencurik said.
Indiana and Omaha had a practice game today, with Omaha winning 5-2.
Rookies dominated the goal scoring for the Lancers; Dallas Stars pick Nico Sacchetti scored two goals while Matt White & Chris Connolly scored a goal apiece along with Lancer vet Matt Thurber.Indiana's site gives us an update on the plans for both teams on their way to Quebec.
Lancer goaltenders Drew Palmisano and Shane Madolora split time in net and each gave up one goal.
Indy plays the Omaha Lancers this afternoon in a scrimmage game from the Herbert H. Carnegie Centennial Centre in Toronto, Ontario which was ironically the same rink that Ice CEO/GM Paul Skjodt and Head Coach Charlie Skjodt played their first year of junior hockey back in the mid-70’s.Sounds like a great experience for everyone involved.
After today’s contest, the Ice will visit the CN Tower and Hockey Hall of Fame in downtown Toronto and have dinner tonight at Wayne Gretzky’s Restaurant, before departing for Montreal late this evening. Wednesday includes a visit to the historic Montreal Forum and some sightseeing before the team heads to northern Quebec to participate in the CCM Junior Classic.
