Pheonix Copley has some new competitionbetween the pipes in Tri-City (USHL) after the Storm traded for Adam Wilcox.

Alumni

John Scott (Chicago – NHL) was given a D+ for the season thus far by Rant Sports, which still ties him for sixth among Blackhawks defensemen. He's been getting more opportunities now that Brian Seabrook is injured.

Riley Nelson is trying to help the Colorado Eagles (ECHL) through a rough patch. It looks like the power play is helping with that, behind Captain Nelson.
