Commenter theninjagreg over at Pension Plan Puppets has updated his Super Shot Search app, allowing users to create charts of the shots against a particular goalie. I figured this would be interesting to fans of Gabe's work. The link here is to Tim Thomas' chart from last season. Have at it!
Hey all! I hope everyone is gearing up for the holiday season with your friends and loved ones. With Christmas around the corner and our World Junior Preview getting it's final tweeks before it's run date of December 25, 2011, we at Arctic Ice will forgo the next two days of Winnipeg Jets Headlines. We apologize to anyone who enjoys this segment and assure you that it will be back on track for Tuesday, January 3, 2012. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
This move suggests that Antti Miettinen will be in the lineup on Tuesday against the Islanders. Jaffray had already been placed on waivers and cleared on the 14th, which is less than 7 days ago meaning he was still eligible for reassignment without being waived again. Jaffray had 1 point and 7 penalty minutes in 13 games with the Jets. Jaffray serves as Captain of the St. John's IceCaps.
According to multiple souces, Bogosian will not be suspended. As per Michael Russo No supplemental discipline for Bogosian. #nhl feels Bogosian didn't run at Bouchard & Bouchard turned just prior to hit #mnwild #jets
As per Bob McKenzie, Arturs Kulda is on his way to the IceCaps and Jason Jaffray would join him if he clears, thus making room for Mittens, or Antti Miettinen. Whichever you prefer.
As previously noted, Arctic Ice's very own Hawerchuk will be on to talk hockey with the guys from Illegal Curve. The show airs between 12-3PM and can be listened to on AM Radio 1290, or can be streamed online HERE.
Basketball analysis and shooting three pointers. Success effects attempts but does not carry over to the next shot.
The Jets claimed Ben Maxwell off waivers from the Ducks today and promptly assigned him to St. John's. They also reassigned Brett Festerling to the IceCaps after removing him from the IR.
Winnipeg will no longer be battling it out (as often) with their Southeast Division foes next season, as a new realignment plan sees them slot into the ______ Conference alongside the Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Nashville Predators, Dallas Stars, St. Louis Blues and Minnesota Wild as the NHL went for a 4 conference set up.
