Tuesday Update…

Hawks in Chilliwack tonight…I’ll have an update on the Jonathan Milhouse situation on the pre-game show tonight.

It was great to talk with new owner Bill Gallacher for a few minutes after the game on Sunday night.  He had an early morning flight back to Calgary on Monday AM, so we weren’t able to do an interview, but he is very eager to make it down to Portland for a game very soon.

His passion is undeniable and infectious.

After the game on Sunday, the team was treated to a tremendous meal at the Cactus Club Cafe in downtown Vancouver. 

The team was joined at dinner by eight or nine of the Hawks list players who attended the Hawks/Giants game that night.

Most of the list players got to skate with the new Coaching staff on Monday morning, but I wasn’t able to attend due to work commitments.  In fact, I’ve spent virtually zero time with the team since Sunday night.  I’ll have to catch up on the happenings when I meet up with them in Chilliwack later tonight.

Former Hawks goaltender Jordan White has surfaced with the Pentiction Vees of the BCHL.  In seven games, White is 3-4 with a 3.95 GAA and a 85.71 save percentage.

Matt Schmermund is listed on the Camrose Kodiak roster, but hasn’t appeared in a game as of yet.

Thats it for now…game notes to follow later today.

  1. Hey Andy,

    Just wondering if you knew and able to share which list players took part in the skate and dinner with the team. Thanks for the info if your able to give it.

  2. His passion is undeniable and infectious.

    Where have I heard that story before?

  3. The Catus Club Cafe is terrific resturant and none too cheap. This is a great example of how the ownership is taking care of the players and list players.

    It’s a far cry from the take out pizza and bland pasta of days past. Also, under previous ownership list players were seldom contacted let alone made to feel part of the club.

    Keep up the good work!
