Tuesday . . . early

The USHL’s Fargo Force is looking for a head coach following the resignation of Steve Johnson. He completed one season as the Force’s head coach and now has left to sign on as an assistant coach with the St. Cloud State Huskies. They needed an assistant coach after Eric Rud left to become GM/head coach of the USHL’s Green Bay Gamblers. . . . Before joining the Force, Johnson had been head coach of the USHL’s Lincoln Stars for 11 years. He is a three-time USHL coach of the year.

Jim Crosson has signed on with the Edmonton Oilers as an amateur scout. Crosson (Seattle, Calgary, New Westminster, 1977-80) will work WHL, CIS and junior A games across the Prairies.
Now here is an interesting story. It involves Lyle Seitz, who spent 20 years as a linesman in the pro game. Guess what he’s doing now? Yes, he is coaching. He is an assistant coach with the AJHL’s Okotoks Oilers. That story is right here.
The Spokane Chiefs trimmed their roster to on Monday by making two moves. They reassigned D Tyler Cunningham, their first pick in the 2010 bantam draft, to the midget AAA team in Moose Jaw. They also released F Mike Betz, 18. He was the 12th overall pick in the 2007 bantam draft but played in only 32 regular-season games with the Chiefs. . . . The Chiefs are carrying four goaltenders, eight defencemen and 17 forwards.

Just heard the Calgary Royals, now the Calgary Mustangs; coach Jeff Peters quit last night.

Can anyone validate? Who will step in now?

Interestingly, the mayor of Portland now cites the Winterhawks as one of the reasons the AAA baseball team has left town. I'm not sure if this is good or bad for the 'hawks...

John Canzano and Sam Adams are both idiots! The baseball team is gone because Sam Adams (and Randy Leonard, city councilman) likes soccer. They were willing to do whatever it takes to bring in a major league soccer team (just because you call it "major league soccer" doesn't make it a real major league sport), but didn't want to spend any effort trying to keep the baseball team. The city of Portland has had many opportunities over the years to get major league baseball and NHL hockey, but city and state officials nixed them. But when "major league" soccer comes in, they bend over backwards? what a joke!
