The Riders were on the power play when Seidel tied the game at three by burying a cross-crease pass from Doug Jones with 5:46 left in regulation.

The Riders were forced to come from behind after the Storm ripped off three straight goals in the first and second periods.

Jesse Martin scored a pair of rebound goals just over four minutes apart in the first period to turn a 1-0 Rider lead into a 2-1 Storm advantage.

Calle Ridderwall's power play goal at 8:31 of the second period extend the Tri-City lead to two goals.

The Storm broke loose only after Aaron Bogosian turned a Jacob Cepis centering pass into the game's only goal at 4:11 of the first period.

Hawks Blank Bucs

On the strength of a four goal second period, the Waterloo Black Hawks rallied by the Des Moines Buccaneers 7-3 Saturday.

Des Moines led 2-0 after 20 minutes on two goals by Richard Purslow. Josh Turnbull started the comeback early in the second with his fifth goal of the season against Des Moines on a long shot from the point. Isak Tranvik tied the game and Tim Gilbert put the Hawks ahead, midway through the second, both set up by Kyle Reeds. During a five-on-three powerplay, Matt Arhontas fired in a one-timer that proved to be the game winner.

Des Moines scored at 2:10 of the third to cut Waterloo's lead to one, but Reeds, Brett Barta, and Craig Smith would put pucks in before the final buzzer.

However, Jake Skjodt scored Indiana's only goal of the night on the power play at 17:03 of the third period for a 2-1 Lancer advantage at the second intermission.

It was Comrie's seventh goal overall in the USHL this season and first with the Lancers since coming from Ohio earlier in the week. Schafer finished the night with his sixth goal of the year, an empty-netter, with 27 seconds remaining in the contest.

The Lancers out shot the Ice for the second straight night, this time by a 34-26 margin. Each team scored once on the power play in seven opportunities and the Lancers took 10 penalties for 23 minutes.

Goaltender Drew Palmisano won his second straight game for the Lancers since coming from Ohio with a 25-save performance.

Bucs Defenseman Commits to Brown University

Des Moines, Iowa --- The Des Moines Buccaneers head coach and general manager Regg Simon announced today that defenseman Ben Rosen has verbally committed to Brown University of the Eastern College Athletic Conference Hockey League (ECACHL) for 2008.

Rosen, a native of Syosset, New York came to Des Moines after spending last season in the Eastern Junior Hockey League with the Boston Junior Bruins. As a defenseman for the Buccaneers, he has registered 2 assists and has a plus/minus rating of +3 in 13 games played.

"Ben will be playing for a great coaching staff and program, as well as attending one of the finest universities in the world," said Simon. "He's going to be getting the best of both worlds by being a Division I college athlete while earning a very prestigious degree."

Brown currently sports an overall record of 6 wins, 4 losses and 2 ties. In ECACHL play, they have a 3-3-1 record, which puts them in a tie for seventh place. However, they sit only three points out of third and four points out in fourth in the league standings.

Rosen is the eleventh Buccaneer to commit to a Division I hockey program this season. Players with previous college commitments are Jeff Petry (Michigan State), Jimmy Martin (Yale), Aaron Palushaj (Michigan), Rich Purslow (Nebraska-Omaha), Ben Ryan (Notre Dame), Matt Read (Bemidji State), Travis Paeth (Western Michigan), Shane Sims (Ohio State), Austin Handley (Michigan State) and Matt Dalton (Bemidji State).

Last week, the Herd split a pair of home games, topping Waterloo on Wednesday before falling 4-3 to Sioux City on Saturday.

Hansen Commits to Quinnipiac University The Stampede announced today that defenseman Zach Hansen has committed to Quinnipiac University for the 2007-08 season. A native of White Bear Lake, MN, Hansen is in his first season with the Stampede and has recorded 12 points (6g, 6a) in 23 games. Last week he tallied an assist in a win over Waterloo and a goal in a loss to Sioux City.

At Quinnipiac, Hansen will join fellow teammate Jake Bauer who committed to the University over the summer. Hansen becomes the ninth Stampede player to commit to a Division I school this year.

"You win with people like Zach," said Stampede head coach Kevin Hartzell. "He competes very hard, every shift, every game. He is an excellent skater with great feet, good vision and great passing ability. Quinnipiac has gotten two excellent defensemen from us in getting both Hansen and Jake Bauer," added Hartzell.

Hansen, a first round draft pick (12th overall) by the Stampede in the 2006 Entry Draft, spent last season playing for White Bear Lake High School. In 16 games with the Bears, Hansen posted 25 points on six goals and 19 assists.

Quinnipiac University is a member of the ECAC and in their 8th season at a Division I level. They are currently 8-4-4 on the season, in first place in the ECAC and ranked #17 in the nation.

STAMPEDE RELEASE MILLER-

The Stampede also announced today that they have released forward Joe Miller from their roster. The coaching staff is currently working on placing Miller with a North American Hockey League (NAHL) club.

"This was an extremely difficult decision for me to make as a coach," said head coach Kevin Hartzell. "Joey is a quality person, has great character, is an excellent athlete and a winner. He has some skating limitations that are holding his progress back and as a coach, you have to look at time, other players development and so on. I just thought it best that he play more elsewhere and continue to work on improving his skating."

The Stampede now have an opening on their roster and will be looking to fill that spot in the near future.

STAMPEDE HELP SPREAD

HOLIDAY CHEER-

Stampede players, coaches and staff helped spread some holiday cheer last week. On Thursday, the Stampede visited the Volunteers of America "Head Start Program" where they delivered gifts to 60 students

Daniels Construction graciously purchased all the presents for the children. While opening gifts, the children and players enjoyed special ice cream treats donated by Cold Stone Creamery in Sioux Falls. The Stampede players read to the children, sang nursery rhymes, demonstrated their hockey equipment and helped pass out gifts.

On Friday, the Stampede visited the pediatric unit at Sioux Valley Hospital where they passed out gifts and signed autographs for children who can't make it home for the holiday season.
