Fighting Sioux & Maine Links & Former Sioux News

North Dakota vs. Maine - Series Notes & Links:
Former Sioux News:
  • Matt Greene's first unofficial assist of the season? Packing advice for the King's recent European vacation.
  • A recent Brett Hextall feature also includes some old footage of his father Ron's AHL days.
  • Hextall's Portland Pirates have a lot of new talent, including fellow former Sioux Ryan Duncan and Matt Watkins.
  • Speaking of Ryan Duncan, he is the feature in the most recent Pirates Notebook.
  • Kyle Radke and the Rio Grande Killer Bees are also adjusting to a lot of new faces.
  • A trio of former Sioux are part of the Colorado Eagles move to the ECHL. The Sioux contingent is comprised of Michael Forney, Jake Marto and Aaron Schneekloth. Marto and Schneekloth have been defensive partners in the preseason, and Forney has been playing on the Eagles' top line.
  • Adam Calder is off to a sizzling start in the UK.
  • David Toews has been loaned from Rockford (AHL) to their ECHL affiliate, the Toledo Walleye. I don't know what it is, but something tells me there's something mighty fishy about that transaction...
  • David Hale has opted to retire from professional hockey. 
  • TJ Oshie and Jason Blake both made a recent list of the 15 Slickest Shootout Goals. Ya gotta love the ol' spin-o-rama.
  • In addition to the Maine series, there's a ton of action involving former and future Sioux this weekend. Look for all the highlights and summaries in the Week 2 Recap.
  • And we'll leave you with Zach Parise's shootout goal from New Jersey's victory over Los Angeles last night. His slick backhand made a goalie named Quick look anything but. Check it out:
