We're still here
It’s been a little quite on IHW lately. We know. We just didn’t have the time to write our regular weekly updates, because of our day time jobs and other activities. That’s why we’re calling out (again) to everybody that wants to contribute to this website. Please contact us! You want your own column? Write game reports of pro games you visit? Know all the industry rumors? Help us turning IHW into the number one inline hockey website. We’re also inviting everybody to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. A lot of times we got some small news that’s not worth a new article but is entertaining nonetheless. Facebook and Twitter are the places we most likely post it anyway.
In the meantime seasons are ending in Europe. Spain had it’s big finale a while ago with Mallorca and Valladolid battling it out on the last game day. Mallorca grabbed the win, evening up in points with Valladolid but still ending second based on game results. Valladolid will be Spain’s number one team to represent Spain in the European Cup.
In Italy Trieste and Padova are playing the final play-offs series and both won two games after the first four. June 1st they will play game 5.
In France it’s also time for the championship series, which will go between Anglet and Rethel.
In the last week there is also some industry buzz. Revision Hockey has signed a couple of new pro players for their 2011 NARCh Pro and D1 teams. Some are players we’ve seen before on the Vanquish team (Tyler Walser, Alex Durinka), some are new additions (Blake Page, Derrick Burnett). Read all about it on their Facebook page.
Armada Hockey, the brand we posted about when we launched, just posted a new video about signing Gerry Osterkamp, LA Pama Cyclones pro defense. A lot of sneak previews in the video as we see samples or plans for skates, gloves, pants, girdles, bags and sticks. Take a look at the video below.
Again thanks for sticking with us, even when the amount of articles is temporarily down. Once the summer starts we will have a ton of news, with NARCh in Florida and two World Championships in Europe. We will be at the IIHF World Championship in Pardubice (Czech Republic), so stay tuned.
