Great to be back in the great old State of Hockey, even if it is just digitally.

Intriguing news out of Sioux Falls and Chicago today as 2015 4th round pick Ales Stezka looks for a fresh start. Having watched him extensively as a fan and office USHL official last season, it was clear he was frustrated with both the lack of starts and the adjustment to North American ice. Even though the cage was his for the taking with 2015 Clark Cup winning goalie Stefanos Lekkas headed to Vermont, a clean slate may be just the ticket for the sizeable Czech. We'll have more on him below.

I always find it refreshing to listen to highly skilled guitarists battle and flow together in perfect sync. Enjoy a little Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwei Malmsteen!
