Hoof Beats: Halloween extended

Tomorrow, kids will dress up to get free candy.

Friday, kids will dress up to get free hockey.

Don’t discard your Halloween costumes after the trick-or-treating is over. Kids 12 and under wearing their Halloween costumes will get in free to Friday night’s game against Ferris State.

On Saturday, the first 500 fans will receive a puck with the UAH Chargers logo, courtesy of SportsMed.

Get your tickets now. Remember that there will be great promotions all season long.

Coaches luncheon: As with every home series, there will be a coaches’ luncheon Friday at noon in the Varsity Room at Spragins Hall.

LawLers Barbecue will be catering the luncheon and our special guest speaker will be head coach Bob Daniels of the Ferris State Bulldogs. UAH coach Mike Corbett will follow Daniels and will also speak to the group about this weekend’s series.

Tickets are $8 at the door, but Blue Line Club members get in free.

Guerriero is a stat leader: Freshman goaltender Carmine Guerriero has the early lead in the WCHA in both goals against average (1.91) and save percentage (.942).

Talbot watch: Former Charger Cam Talbot continues to impress New York Ranger fans as the team’s No. 2 goaltender. Talbot made his third start Tuesday, making 24 saves in the Rangers’ 2-1 win over the New York Islanders on Long Island. Watch Cam’s post-game reaction.

On Saturday, Talbot got his first NHL victory, making 32 saves as the Rangers beat the Red Wings 3-2 in overtime in Detroit. Watch his reaction (wearing Broadway Hat and all).

Twitter time: To better reflect that we are the unofficial site and Twitter account of UAH hockey, we’ve changed our Twitter handle to @weloveuahhockey. The hockey and sports information offices have taken over the handle @uahhockey, so give it a follow for updates direct from the source.

For clarification, UAHHockey.com is independent site from the UAH athletics department. As such, we’re can be more creative and critical with our commentary.


Good to find a use for those old unis…

By the way, thanks to the UAH hockey staff and the sports information office for providing the access and information that helps make this site the best it can be.

Final Five: We can’t make any suggestions that UAH will be in it, but in case you are interested, here is a brochure for the WCHA Final Five, which will take place March 21-22 in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Defending the zone: UAH men’s soccer coach Matt Watts spotted a scarecrow wearing last year’s older away uniforms (right) at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens.

By the way, the “football” Chargers are having a pretty good season in Watts’s first season as head coach. After finishing 1-15 last year, UAH is 9-6-1 overall and 7-6 in the Gulf South Conference. They travel to Union on Friday before heading to the GSC Tournament the following weekend.
