Icemen Gets NHL Call Up

 

The Evansville Icemen season hasn't turned out quite like planned, but one player has reason to celebrate. Goalkeeper Chris Driedger was recalled by the NHL's Ottawa Senators. This is the second time the Senators have called up Driedger, the first being February 17th.
Driedger is expected to play tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh.
With Driedger recalled, the Icemen have signed Alex Vazzano to fill his roster spot. Vazzano (which is an awesome hockey name, ha!) will join the Icemen for their game Friday against the Florida Everblades.
Although the season is winding down, there is still time for you to check out the Icemen!

As funny as it seems, I sometimes miss school. And I mean K-8, because if I knew now what I didn't know then, I would have aced all of my classes. Hey, isn't that a Toby Keith song? Anyway, I was perusing the internet and I found a link to a Bullitt County schools eighth grade exam from 1912. You thought school was easy back then? Think again!

Dick Vitale Campaigning For Murray St. NCAA Bid [PHOTO]

Just as Louisville's Mangok Mathiang hit the go-ahead shot to eventually defeat Virginia in their final regular season game last Saturday, the OVC Men's title game in Nashville between Belmont and Murray St. was going down to the wire. For Murray St., their 25 game winning streak, the second longest in the country behind Kentucky, was broken when Taylor Barnette hit a crazy three-pointer that basically sealed the victory and automatic bid for the Bears, who will be making their 7th appearance in the NCAA tournament. However, college commentator Dick Vitale thinks the Racers deserve a bid. Just take a look at his social media posts.
