Help Oleg...

Help the Ice Jets' (DFW youth program, not F-M) coach Oleg Tsirkounov get back into the USA...

In case you weren't paying attention, the USHL has come to their senses and returned birthdates to their rightful place on team rosters...

This looks like a pretty good argument for taking an NCAA scholly vs. a Major Junior/CIS deal...

IIHF study backs up Cherry's beliefs. Here's a copy of the IIHF report (warning, it's in Adode PDF), courtesy of Alan Ryder at HockeyAnalytics.com. I'm not sure I agree with the report, as much of it smacks of provincial protectionism...

Old Blacktop (my pet name for Glenn Hibdon for the past 15 or so years, take a look at his picture and you'll see why) tells the story of the Tulsa Rampage and their owner, Julie Wilson. But who is this mystery woman mentioned in the article by the name of Harris? Oh, and remember Rampage players, keep those vulgarities away from public ears - that means do all your swearing on the team bus...

El Paso's introduction to junior hockey a success...

BCHL Williams Lake TimberWolves ask for more support...

Both teams kept off the ice after junior hockey dust-up...

Two junior hockey teams suspended after brawl that left linesman unconscious...

90%? More like 100%! All refs suck and USA Hockey rules with it.

not to use an old cliche, but maybe you should get certified as an official, officiate your entire life under a certain set of rules, and then this year-be forced to officiate an entirely different game. I'm sure it's pretty easy.

How much are they paying Oleg? Give that money to a deserving American coach. Too much of Texas hockey is Canadian or other imported coaching. Time to go USA and leave Oleg do things the corect way.

Most of the refs last year in this town and especially Mhoa were awful...The new standards just give you an excuse for a few more months...On Oleg, he was simply trying to make a living here...He owned a pizza joint as well, not a full-time coach like many....and, he was actually good, unlike most full time coaches.

Oleg knew what he was doing and was a decent person. The kids respected him immensely and he worked hard. Maybe he should go to Mexico, just walk over our southern border, claim racism and leach off our economy. Then he will have no worries. I hope he returns to continue teaching our kids.
