Alaska Hockey News

Don't forget the games on TV locally on Fox 7 and nationally on ESPNU. And' if you can't get either you can listen on radio or the internet. OR - you can catch a video broadcast on the web. Go to the Athletic Departmetn web page - and click on the Penn Atlantic box in the upper left hand corner of the page. You'll need high speed internet (you can run a test of your speed from the Penn Atlantic site) and it will cost you $6.99.

All Nanook home games will be available for video streaming on Penn Atlantic.

Former Nanook Ryan Lang, a forward who donned a Nanook jersey from 2000-2004 and is the current captain the East Coast Hockey League's Augusta Lynx, participated in the 2007 Rbk Hockey ECHL All-Star Game at the Idaho Steelhead's Qwest Arena Wednesday night in Boise, Idaho as a member of the American Conference roster.

The American Conference defeated the National Conference 6-3. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound center registered one assist in the All-Star game and was also the second fastest skater in the RBK Hockey Fastest Skater skills competition. Lang set up teammate Brad Schell of Gwinnett for the first goal of the game at 4:26 of the first frame, and was four one-thousandths shy of winning the fastest skater title with a time of 14.654.

And, don't forget the following "Hockey Week in Fairbanks" activities - The Nanook Alumni vs. Gold King Alumni game at the Carlson Center at 3 p.m. on Saturday followed by the Police vs. Firemen game at 4:15 p.m. - and, bring your skates to Saturday's game if you want to join in the Skate with the Nanooks and Ice Dogs following the game.

We're starting the silent auction of the retro jerseys - powder blue replicas of the Nanook Jerseys from 1978 worn by the Nanooks during this year's Governor's Cup games. This weekend we will be auctioning off the jerseys of Kyle Greentree and Wylie Rogers (however due to a new NCAA ruling the nameplates will be removed). The minimum bid is $150 and each additional bid must be at least $5 more than the prior bid. Bidding will end at the start of the third period on Saturday. If your maximum is at least $5 over the highest bid you will be declared the winner for the highest in person bid +$5 (shipping extra).

And, the "Road to the Joe" will be in Fairbanks this weekend. Stop by the display at the Carlson and enter for a chance to win a hotel room and game tickets to the CCHA championships to be held at "the Joe" on March 16-17. There will also be T-shirt giveaways and you can bring your camera and have your picture taken with the Mason Cup.

The Nanooks take on the mighty Michigan Wolverines tonight and Saturday night at the Carlson Center.
