when the Aeros not tie-ing up one's attention, or Opera does :-)!
Meanwhile he is driving to Phoenix to serve as a 'black ace' for the Coyotes in case a clear day roster player gets injured.
What's a Black Ace, you who are not versed in Hockey ask?
Per The Hockey Hall of Fame site:
"History Of The Black Aces
In the Old West, Wild Bill Hickok was shot while playing poker. He was holding what became known as the "Dead Man's Hand" - two eights, the jack of diamonds, and the BLACK ACES! If you're holding this hand, you've run out of luck.
Eddie Shore, an Honored Member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, was owner of the AHL Springfield Indians. Shore bought the Indians in 1940 after his playing days with the Boston Bruins. He started to to call the players who were working their way back into the line-up of his club, his 'Black Aces.' These were players who were coming off of injuries or were being punished. They had run out of luck as far as Shore was concerned. Former Boston Bruins coach and current color commentator for Hockey Night In Canada, Don Cherry, was one of Eddie Shore's most celebrated 'Black Aces.'
Well, I am sure,
Beaudoin and his fellow Black Aces nowadays, will not be required to 'paint seats,
sell programs', etc. :-)! Wishing him "ICE TIME", though!
AND the Aeros' Black Aces are:
F Buck, Brandon
F Broda, Joel
F Morency, Pascal
D Fraser, Jamie
I am not clear where these guys fit in:
F Campbell, Scott,
Caron, Josh(gone, he did not stay but a few days - did he?)
LW Foucault, Kris,
D Lofquist, Sam?
So if any of you, chers readers, can clarify this,
I will appreciate your comments.
Also unclear if Kuemper, Darcy will join as BU Goalie,
since his team is close to ending their season?
Again, any news about him will be welcome.
AND FOR TONIGHT IT IS
