Just a quick note to, well, note that former UAF Nanooks forward Ron Meyers has re-upped with ECHL Idaho.
Last season he hooked up with the Steelheads after his college career finished and racked 3-4--7 totals in 12 regular-season games and 2-3--5 totals in 10 playoff games.
The Blog is still slightly peeved Meyers wasn't voted Most Outstanding Player at UAA's tournament a couple-three seasons ago, when he was dynamite as a penalty killer. If memory serves, the honor went to eventual Alaska Aces center (briefly) Dion Knelsen.
On another front, former Aces center Jordan Foreman (2008-09) signed with the Central Hockey League's Missouri Mavericks, for whom he played in 2009-10. He'll join a couple of former Aces -- defenseman Dave Pszenyczny (aka Davey Alphabet, says Mrs. Blog) and forward John-Scott Dickson.
Also of note, 40-year-old Kory Karlander, who Aces fans should remember from the 2011 Kelly Cup Finals, re-upped with the Kalamazoo K-Wings. Dude can still play, as evidenced by his 18-37--55 numbers in 61 regular-season games last season and his 4-7--11 totals in 14 playoff games.
One of the enduring memories from the 2011 Finals was Karlander absolutely cleaning up on the Aces in the face-off circle, where he didn't just win a vast majority of draws, but won a huge percentage absolutely cleanly. Also, way back in the day, The Blog witnessed Karlander's first college goal -- he scored it for Northern Michigan at Sullivan Arena. And, yes, The Blog is exceedingly old.
