After scoring one point in four games to start season 18 for the Kansas Hawkeyes, forward Renn Palen was placed on waivers today.
This was to be the veteran players 17th with the Hawkeyes. He has to this point spent his entire season with the Hawkeyes.
"He was in the last year of his contract, and there had been no discussions between him and the team about the future," said coach Peter Seever. "We also saw the opportunity to make a move that could help our top line."
That move was to claim Jay Pita from The Infected Mushrooms.
Pita put up 41 points in 72 games last season for the Mushrooms.
The move also paves the way for the Hawkeyes most recent top draft pick, 18-year-old Kerry Orrick. Orrick will play on the second line.
"He played well during the first few games of the season, and he will be our future," Seever said. "We are excited to see what he can bring this year." 4 weeks ago | Kansas Hawkeyes

METROHO is a browser-based multiplayer hockey game that combines an interactive hockey simulator with an engaging web community. In METROHO, you own, manage, and coach your own team. The advantage METROHO offers is enough statistics and features to make the game all that it should be, without any overwhelming complications. [Screenshots]
Key Features Include:
Ability to play games manually.
You start off by creating your own team which will consist of 15 forwards, 8 defensemen, and 3 goalies, each with their own age and skill level. Next, you sign these players and other free agents to your team while staying under the $65 Million salary cap. Once you're ready, join a league.
Public Leagues consist of 10 teams in a season that lasts 20 days. Your team will play each of the league's other teams 8 times for a season total of 72 games. Half the games will be played at home, while the rest will be played on the road. The advantage of home games is that you can manually start the game any time during its scheduled day. This is a key feature of METROHO, as during a home game simulation, you can select the lines you want for each round.
If you can't find a league you like, you can create your own league of 10 or 15 teams. Leagues can even be made private so that only your friends can join!
The top 8 teams in a league's standings, after the season is over, advance to the playoffs, following a one day hiatus. Playoffs involve three series with each series being a best of 3, 5, or 7 (depending on your league's settings) to determine the league's champion. Playoffs last nine days. This means that once your team joins a league, the league's season and playoffs will last a grand total of 30 days.
Competition is fierce as there are both team and player awards to be won, not to mention the bragging rights that go with a large fan base. All teams start off in Level One and strive for promotion into higher level leagues which feature progressively bigger trophies.
