Ivan Foshee - although he is a rookie the Edmonton Crash have big plans to build around this kid. A natural Checker that is in the runnings for a phenom trophy. "He is a grinder through and through."

And he has an unexpected offensive up side."

hesston92: Jerry Steinhardt was having the season of his career — at least he was getting on the ice more than ever before.
"This has been what I have worked for," Steinhardt said. "It is all I have wanted. To play at the highest levels."
He played 62 of his 75 career games for the Hesston Larks this season, a team he has been under contract with for nine seasons.
Then he got hurt. A wrist injury put him on the disabled list for eight games.
Today he was activated for the playoffs. He will get a few more games before his contract, which has not been renegotiated, comes to a close.
"I can't wait. I have never played a playoff game. If this is the end for me in Hesston, this is how I want to be the end," Steinhardt said.
"Jerry has always been a role player type guy for us — he's always been that calming presence on the bench when we need that. His value to this team goes beyond ice time and stats," said coach Sylvester Sideris

Cory Koppenger - this 6'6" 245lb mountain of a man that was predicted to go undrafted was pleased to be picked in the 3rd round and find a home on the 3rd line for the majority of his career. We asked him about why he drops the gloves so often.
"Well... they didn't draft me to score." He replies with a toothless grin. "My role on the team is to find a dance partner and go sit down so Herndon can log some extra minutes on the third line."
With a fight record of 841-5-40. We would have to admit he is damn good at his job. With 4408 pims in 1203 games, this 36 year old still loves his role on the team after 19 seasons. 3 weeks, 3 days ago | Edmonton Crash
Carey Herndon - Originally rated to go in the second round of his draft, But the Edmonton Crash took a gamble and drafted him 6th overall. Listed as a second line setup man by the scouts he persevered and spent his whole career as a top line player. With 1214 points in 1059 games he has always been a producer.
When asked about the 33 year olds early success he replied "I owe alot of that to Marian Rode. With that guy behind you all I had to do was focus on offense. When he decided to leave the team for a bigger paycheck that broke my heart. But they gave me the C and I had to learn the game all over again"
Now on his way to his second fire ring trophy on a struggling team, we asked him about retirement. He simply stated that he has 2 more seasons left on his contract and isn't planning on hanging his skates up anytime soon. 3 weeks, 4 days ago | Edmonton Crash

Today the Hesston Larks drafted Tuan Peek, a 17-year-old checker who played for Chicago in the Junior L5P4 league in the first round — ninth selection overall — in the junior draft.
“I can hardly wait to get into a Hesston jersey,” Tuan said. “I have work to do before getting on the ice, but I am joining a championship caliber organization.”
In 30 games Tuan scored 23 goals and notched 15 assists while averaging 21 minutes a game.
“What impressed me is his goals – 23 in 30 games from his position is impressive,” said Larks coach Sylvester Sideris. “He led Chicago forwards in points this season. He is one of the best all around forwards we could have drafted.”
The Larks have two more selections in the draft in the days ahead — one in the second round (21st overall) and one in the third (35th overall).
“We need to find a diamond in the rough defender. We’ve done our scouting, but so has everyone else,” Sideris said. 3 months, 1 week ago | Hesston Larks
The Hesston Larks improbable run to the L5P4 finals cross the finish line today, as the Larks picked up a 1-0 win over the 89 Flames on the road to advance to the league final.
“I have been telling this team they are good enough for this since day one of the season,” said coach
Gordon Brulotte, the starting keeper for the Larks, was named the top star of the game.
“Honestly, I had not played well in the playoffs up to this point,” Brulottte said.
Brulotte stopped all 32 shots he faced today. Up to this point he had recorded a 94 percent save rate in the playoffs, allowing eight goals in four games.
“I want to be considered one of the best in the game today, and to do that, I have to be better than that,” Brulotte said. “I have to play like I played today.”
His play was good enough to make forward Pavel Chiro’s goal in the 13th minute of the second period stand up.
Chirco was fed by a pass from Kevin Winnerstrand for his sixth score of the playoffs. Winnerstrand had just been stopped by Sidney Clark when he found Chirco for the key score. Winnerstrand now has six assists — all to Chirco — in the playoffs.
“The pass set me up perfectly, Kevin has been playing very well,” Chirco said.
The Larks will take on the Nyak Rangers in the final. During the regular season the Larks went 3-5 against the Rangers this season.
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.
