- A couple of notes: NHL free agency begins Tuesday. Monday is also the deadline for ECHL teams to give qualifying offers to eight players. The rest become free agents, meaning we'll likely see a lot of signings in the next few days.
- A deeper look into the 5 Indiana Ice players picked in the NHL Draft. The Lansing State Journal looks at Devils pick (and future MSU Spartan) Josh Jacobs. Some quotes from Ryan Mantha after being picked by the Rangers, and a brief video. Also, a story from Delaware on Dwyer Tschantz going to the Blues. The Toronto Sun looks at Rinat Valiev, and the St. Catharine's paper gives a perspective on Blake Siebenaler.
- An old friend has a new job, as Rod Davidson will be the first coach of the Southwest Pennsylvania Magic of the single-A Federal Hockey League. Davidson coached the Indianapolis Ice in their first three CHL seasons, from 1999-2002, winning a championship in 2000. The FHL has teams in Dayton, Danville (Ill.), Danbury (Conn.) & Watertown (N.Y.), and is probably best-known for this "beer fight.
- Better post this before Sam Gagner gets traded again.
