Hawks and Jackets visit Indy

CENTURY CLUB: Garrett Roe earned his 100th career point (37G, 63A) with a goal in a 4-1 loss to Omaha on December 15th, becoming the first player in Ice history to reach the 100-point milestone. Roe has saved his best hockey for the holiday season, scoring seventeen points in the month of December, including six points this season (3G, 3A). His 26 points (10G, 16A) is second best among Ice scorers this season.

MR. CLUTCH: Jake Skjodt's goal-scoring tear has provided nothing but "W's" in the win column for the Ice so far this season. Indiana is 8-2-0 in games where Skjodt has scored and he has recorded eight of his team-high 13 tallies on the man-advantage.

KING KANGAS: Goaltender Alex Kangas has been strong between the pipes this season, producing ten 30+ save performances. Kangas has become the cornerstone of the Indiana defense with a .915 save percentage and 7-2-1 record in his last ten games.

BLACK HAWK DOWN: The Waterloo Black Hawks visit Indianapolis for the first time this season on Friday night. Indiana is 0-3-0 this season against Waterloo, losing all three match-ups on the road at Young Arena. Their struggles stem from an inability to find the back of the net thanks to the solid play of Waterloo netminders Ryan Rondeau and Matthew DiGiralamo who have combined for a 1.67 GAA and .930 save percentage against Indiana this season.

"JACKETS" MARCHING: The Ohio Junior Blue Jackets return to Pepsi Coliseum on Saturday evening for their fourth contest with Indiana this season. The Ice was victorious in all three of the previous meetings outscoring the "Jackets" by a 14-6 margin. John Kemp paces Indiana against Ohio with nine points (3G, 6A).

ICE NOTES: Eric Olimb is expected to make his Ice debut this weekend....The second-year defensemen registered 17 points (8G, 9A) and 81 penalty minutes in 57 games last season...John Kemp's 24 helpers are tied for first among USHL assist leaders.... Indiana is 8-1-0 this season in games where they score first and 8-2-0 this year at Pepsi Coliseum.

Storm has three earn Division I scholarships

KEARNEY - The Tri-City Storm of the United States Hockey League announced Wednesday that three players on the team's current roster have received scholarships to play hockey at the Division I level.

Forwards Matt Ambroz, Jordan Willert and David Brownschidle have all determined where they will continue their hockey careers and education. Ambroz and Willert will play at the University of Nebraska at Omaha while Brownschidle will attend Brown University in Rhode Island.

"They are three veterans who have paid their dues in the USHL. All are classic examples of what the USHL does. It brings in good hockey players and the league makes them better," said Bliss Littler, the Storm's head coach and general manager.

Ambroz, currently in his third season with the Storm, will join the Mavericks in the fall of 2007. Ambroz is Tri-City's third leading scorer with nine goals, 12 assists for 21 points.

Willert will join Ambroz and the Mavericks the following year. He will remain with the Storm for the 2007-08 season and attend UNO in the fall of 2008.

Brownschidle, a native of Lawrenceville, N.J., has yet to decide if he will join the Bears in the fall of 2007 or 2008. Brown University is a member of the Ivy League.

"All three have more improvement yet this year and at some point they will all be good college hockey players," Littler said.

Waterloo Black Hawks Weekly

Three rivals from the Eastern Division await Waterloo this weekend. The Black Hawks have performed well against the teams from their half of the USHL so far, posting an 11-2-2 record. Green Bay, at 11-5-2, is the only other team in the league with comparable success against divisional foes. Waterloo enters the weekend at 3-0-0 against Indiana, 3-0-0 versus Chicago, and 1-1-0 with Cedar Rapids.

Season Series Stars

Waterloo's eleven goals against Indiana have been distributed among nine players; James Marcou has a goal and four assists against the Ice. Josh Turnbull and Blake Kessel have led the way against Chicago with three scores and an assist each. Versus Cedar Rapids, Jan-Mikael Juutilainen has two goals, while Kessel, Vince LoVerde, and Brett Barta each have a pair of points.

Three-in-Three (Again)

For the second time in just over a month, the Black Hawks will play three games in three days. At Thanksgiving, the Hawks split a pair of contests with Cedar Rapids and topped Chicago in the final game.

Pepsi Gives Ice Pop

The Indiana Ice have been tough against opponents at their home rink, Pepsi Coliseum, and Waterloo has been frustrated there in the past. Indiana's 8-2-0 record at home is behind only Sioux City and Waterloo for the top mark in the league. In eight games over the last two seasons, the Ice have at least a point in every game against the Black Hawks in Indianapolis, with a 7-0-1 mark. The Black Hawks' only win at Pepsi Coliseum came in overtime last October.

Friday 12/29 at Indiana, 6:05

Saturday 12/30 at Chicago, 7:30
