Pereira to the USHL?

USHR is reporting that recruit Mike Pereira was added to the Lincoln Stars protected list today, probably paving the way for him to play for the USHL team shortly.

This move was probably driven by the fact that his prep coach at South Kent, Geoff Marotollo, was surprisingly let go earlier this week.  So far there is no official confirmation from the Lincoln site or news outlets.


Niagara Game Notes; Parker Update

The game notes are up for this weekend’s 400 mile home and home with Niagara.


Yesterday I mentioned that James Marcou was named Hockey East Player of the Month.  Later in the day the official release was posted by the conference and Paul Dainton was runner-up for Goaltender of the Month honors as well.


John Parker continues to do well with Team USA in the World Junior A Challenge.  After putting up a goal in the team’s exhibition he scored again in the tourney opener against Canada West.  Unfortunately the US lost the game 5-4 in a shootout.  They did rebound the next night to defeat Belarus 6-1 and will play Sweden in the quarterfinals tomorrow.


I’m glad to report that Donnie Moorhouse is back on the radio calling hockey for his alma mater AIC.
