It was a wild Week 4. Will Week 5 bring more uncertainty to the IceHL?
And here's a look at the transactions and roster changes for Week 5.
You'll note the new Modified IR box above. This is how we'll keep track of which teams own the rights to injured players. When these players return from injury, they do not automatically return to their original team's roster. The GM/AGM must add the player back to their roster. If they don't other teams may swoop in to claim the player.
Here are the schedules for Week 4 of the IceHL 2012-13 season:
By the way, the match-up I was not looking forward to is here. It's the Barracudas and Lagers this week so one of the winning streaks will be coming to an end. (I'm a little worried.)
GMs/AGMs, keep an eye on your email this week. I'm going to float a new idea for dealing with injured players so they don't become a drag on your roster.
And if YOU are interested in becoming an IceHL AGM, I may be looking for one or two this week. Send me an email if you're an AHL junkie and would like to be considered for the job.
The third week of the season gets underway today! Waiver claims received by 3pm ET on Tuesday were processed for Week 3. Check out this week's schedule:
But wait, there's more!
This week, Tony Krogen joins the IceHL as assistant general manager of the Olympiques. Because this team had been somewhat abandoned in prior weeks, I allowed the new AGM an additional roster move, which is why you'll see the Olympiques claimed three players. This was a one-time-only situation for Week 3 and it did not affect the waiver order.
The deadline for Week 4 transactions is Monday, Nov. 5 at 3pm ET. Good luck to all!
