Coach Goehring

News broke this morning that former Crunch goaltender Karl Goehring has retired from playing hockey and is coming back into the Crunch fold, this time as a second assistant coach. I have no doubt Karl will be the resource our young goaltenders were missing last year. It will be amazing not to have to rely on Columbus to send us someone with expertise in this area.

On behalf of all of us here at Chairman How’s, I’d just like to say: Welcome back, Karl!

It seemed like there were so many more dark, hair-raising, joy-sucking drops that lasted for ages (December, anyone?) than there were light-hearted, exciting, rising moments where the team attempted to reach for the sky. Over the next four posts, I’m going to take a look at this past season’s ride of thrills, chills, and spills. Sometimes you just can’t move forward until you’ve looked back.

The Week That Was and The Week Ahead…Now with 29% More Legitimacy!

A funny story — last Monday, I read over last week’s recap and look ahead to this week, and I said to Alex, “It seems like this coming week is going to be slow for news…I hope something big happens to give us something to talk about”. As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about. Let’s look back, shall we? Read the rest of this entry »
