December 13, 2014 - Peoria - The Peoria Rivermen pulled out a 3-2 (OT) overtime victory over the Knoxville Ice Bears on a clutch goal by Alex Hudson. Hudson had two goals to lead Peoria to victory. Hudson's tallies came at 19:40 into the third period to make the score 2-2 and 4:14 into the fourth to make the score 3-2 Peoria. The Rivermen were often in penalty trouble, totaling 10 minors and two majors for 60 minutes in penalty time. Peoria had been averaging 25.0 minutes in penalties per game. With 37 shots on target during the contest, the Rivermen exceeded the 25.1 shots they average per game this year.

Knoxville racked up the penalties in the contest, and ended with six minors and one major for 27 minutes in penalty time. The Ice Bears surpassed its season average of 19.0 penalty minutes per game. Knoxville's penalty kill was spotless, allowing no goals on three Peoria power plays. The Ice Bears relied on a core group of players for most of their offense, as Francis Drolet, Mike Henderson and Eric Satim took 21 of the team's 39 shots.

December 12, 2014 - Coach Craigen - Good afternoon STH's,

We traveled through the night and arrived in Peoria, IL today to a dreary and cold morning up North. The boys skated for about 30 minutes this morning and we did some video to conclude our final preparations for our game vs Peoria tonight. We are confident we've made the necessary adjustments to our game and along with staying disciplined and at even strength or better for the majority of the game I think we will like the results when all is said and done.

Bo Driscoll is unable to make his return to the line-up after the neck injury last weekend and we will skate with 5 D yet again. I don't mind 5 D for a 2 game weekend and actually think our 5 sometimes manages the minutes well and barring injury we should be fine with extra workload.  Bryan Hince will start in goal and Michael Sheehan will handle the officiating for both games this weekend.

Fun and telling stat for the weekend: In 5 games thus far vs Peoria, the Ice Bears have taken 31 minor penalties. In 10 games thus far vs everyone else, the Ice Bears have taken just 30 minor penalties.

If this changes, the results will too. Enjoy the game everyone and Happy Holidays!

December 5, 2015 SOUTHAVEN, Miss. -- The Knoxville Ice Bears (11-4-0) scored three unanswered goals, one in each period, to beat the Mississippi RiverKings (4-7-2), 3-1, at the Landers Center Friday night. It's the fourth win in four matches against the RiverKings for Knoxville.

The RiverKings opened the scoring just 1:21 into the first period. Devin Mantha won an offensive zone faceoff to Matt Whitehead. He nudged it to the point where Mike Hayward shot one past Ice Bears goalie Braely Torris for his second goal of the season to give the RiverKings a 1-0 lead. Knoxville responded late in the first as Eric Satim found a loose puck at the left circle and lifted one over the shoulder of Adam Courchaine to tie the game at one with 1:46 to play in the first.

The only goal in the second came late in the period after both sides came up empty on second-period power plays. After a RiverKings icing the Ice Bears won the ensuing faceoff in the offensive zone. Travis Janke was left all alone in front and Berkley Scott centered to him. Courchaine stopped the first shot attempt, but Janke buried the rebound for his second goal of the season to give the Ice Bears a 2-1 lead with 1:32 left in the second.

Knoxville opened the third with an insurance goal just 3:12 into the period. Ryan Salvis collected the puck at the blue line and dropped a pass for David Segal. He cut at the left circle and put a wrist shot past Courchaine for a 3-1 Ice Bears lead. The RiverKings would outshoot Knoxville 14-4 in the third, but Torris held the fort for the Ice Bears

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE HELMET RULE - A player on the ice whose helmet comes off during play will be assessed a minor penalty unless he immediately (a) exits the playing surface or (b) puts the helmet back on with the chin strap properly fastened. If, after losing his helmet, he goes to his players’ bench to be substituted for, he may not return to the ice during play without a helmet (nor may a player exit the penalty bench during play without a helmet). Should he do so, the play shall be stopped once his team has gained possession of the puck, and a minor penalty shall be assessed to the player and the ensuing face-off will take place at the end zone face-off spot of the non-offending team. 2014 - 2015 SPHL Rule Book
