John Carlson scored on a 3-on-1 rush to end what was a tremendous game.
I watched the game at a local sports bar in Rochester, NY, with some co-workers and was surprised when former Buffalo Sabre and New York Islander Coach Ted Nolan walked in. Nolan is the Head Coach of the Rochester Americans AHL squad.
For Walker, I’m sure that he would have liked to have had more ice time, but one thing is certain for Walks…he is a team first guy and you can bet that he worked his tail off at every practice and every time he got the opportunity to play.
The fans of Portland and the Portland Winterhawks can be very proud of Walker and Team USA’s accomplishment…
Also, congrats to Brad Ross for being named the WHL Player of the Month for December…it is a great achievement and once that was richly deserved.
