Survey for Hockey Fans About an App to Be Released Soon

I think it’s safe to say that just about every hockey player, fan and anyone in the media has HockeyDB set as one of their bookmarks or can type the name of the site faster than just about any other site.  A few professional hockey players are trying to take a piece of that pie by developing an app for our smartphones with an expected release date before the season starts.

(Side note: If you don’t have it installed  already, download the LetsGoAmerks.com app on to your iPhone, Android or Blackberry phone immediately by visiting the apps page here!)

The project involves former Rochester Americans defensemen Kyle Hagel (a whopping 3 games), Dustin Sprout and Cam MacIntyre.  Kyle Hagel reached out to me over the weekend to help spread the word and ask for feedback from others.

Here’s the description given about the application:

Shnarped is an iPhone application – created by three players that have recently played in the AHL – that will aggregate information (stats, news/blogs, videos, twitter) about all professional hockey players onto a player page.

Chris Clackson Called up for Amerks

October 21, 2011 - By

Looks like the Rochester Americans have their first transaction of the season with Chris Clackson being called up from the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL, he broke the news himself on Twitter @chrisclackson17 and Amerks head coach Ron Rolston confirmed it.  These guys make it easy, no more trying to guess who the new face is on the ice at a morning skate or waiting for an announcement from the team.

Clackson played in 17 games for the Amerks last season scoring two goals, two assists and acquiring 17 penalty minutes.  He also played 46 games in the ECHL split between the Gwinnett Gladiators and Cincinnati Cyclones scoring a combined 10 goals, 14 assists and 74 penalty minutes.

The Amerks were looking to be down a forward tonight with Jonathan Parker suspended for tonights game and Marcus Foligno suspended for tonight and tomorrow’s game.

Not sure he’ll provide the same scoring potential and speed as Foligno and Parker but he plays physical and it sounds like he’ll be here and ready to play.  Maybe with better players around him compared to last season he’ll provide more.
