Amerks fall to B-Sens 4-1; Meyer out until after all-star break

January 15, 2009 - By

The Amerks just couldn’t get anything going when they took on the Binghamton Senators tonight at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena, losing to the Senators 4-1.

The team started without one of their better players.  Jacob MicFlikier has a cracked foot.  He will be out for about 4 weeks.

Riley Emmerson was back in the lineup, however, and made his presence know when he took on Yablowski (typo stays).  I would call the fight in favor of the mohawked Senator.  Not a horrible fight for Riley, but he looked a bit rusty.

He wasn’t the only one to drop the gloves tonight.  Neil Clark took on on Geoff Waugh.  I would have called the fight for Neil who gave a handful of jabs to Waugh’s head.  But, Clark also busted up his hand.  He left the game for a few minutes while he got it checked out but, was back on the ice before his penalty was up.

Jordan Henry also decided to “fight” tonight.  He tangled with Zack Smith.  Jordan did little to nothing in this fight so, he lost.  When asked what made him drop the gloves tonight because it is rare that he does [...]Read More

Cory Murphy Back To The Panthers…But, For How Long?

January 12, 2009 - By


Defenseman, Cory Murphy was sent back to the Florida Panthers after last night’s win against the Hamilton Bulldogs.  The Panthers immediately put Murphy on waivers.

Could this mean that they plan to keep him in Rochester for the rest of the season if he clears?  He would be a great addition to the Amerks (and was for the five games he played here over the past two weeks).  Remember, Murphy did clear waivers in November but, was never assigned to the Amerks.

Stefan Meyer Cory Murphy

In five games with the Amerks, Cory had 2 goals and 4 assists for 6 points and played about 30 minutes a game.  We could use him for the rest of this season.  He didn’t seem to hate being here either…

Make it happen Florida.

Practice; Matthias Called Up; Brodeur Contract/All-Star Game

January 6, 2009 - By

It’s the first practice I have been able to get to in the new year, and as usual at ESL, it is freezing cold.

The biggest question is still the status of contract talks with goaltender Mike Brodeur.  We asked him after practice and apparently a contract has not been offered to be signed, but his agent has been in talks with the Panthers.. he said he’ll be calling his agent today to try and find out what’s going on.

Mike Brodeur has been selected to the Canadian team for the AHL All-Star Classic, looks like his value continues to go up every day.

I guess we left a few minutes too early to get the scoop, Brodeur gave Kevin O the following quote in the Democrat and Chronicle:

“I’m kind of at a loss for words, it’s an honor and a privilege to be chosen to the All-Star Game,” Brodeur said after this morning’s practice at the ESL Centre. “We’ve been playing great as a team and that accounts for it.”

Shawn Matthias was called back up to the Florida Panthers again, this is his fourth call up in seven days.  Or something like that.. Anthony [...]Read More

Amerks Win Two Games Against the Moose

January 4, 2009 - By

The Amerks won back to back games against the Manitoba Moose, what an excellent start to the new year!  Karl Stewart scored the game winning goal in the 10th round of the shootout on Saturday to give the Amerks the two game sweep.  The last time the Amerks won in Manitoba was December 2006.

Mike Brodeur is now leading the AHL with a 1.59 goals against average following Saturday nights win, if he continues at this pace he should be selected to Team Canada for the AHL All-Star Classic.

On Friday night Stefan Meyer and Jacob Micflikier scored to give the Amerks a 2-1 win.

Saturday goals were scored for Cory Murphy, Stefan Meyer, and the shoot out winner by Karl Stewart for the 3-2 win.

Cory Murphy cleared waivers back on October 11th, makes one wonder if the team could have started the season any differently had he been assigned here at that time.

The Amerks gained four points this weekend and continue climbing the steps out of last place, a lot of games are left in the season and a lot is possible.

“We were better than we were last night,” Moose head coach Scott Arniel said [...]Read More

Cory Murphy Assigned to Amerks

December 30, 2008 - By

Cory Murphy of the Florida Panthers has been assigned to the Amerks on a conditioning assignment.  He’s only played in seven NHL games this season with the Panthers, a shoulder injury has kept him out of the lineup since October 24th.

The 30 year old defenseman has one assist in those seven games he has played.  The Kanata, Ontario native graduated from Colgate University in 2001 after which he went to play in Finland.  He joined the Panthers in the 06/07 season where he played in 47 games and tallied 2 goals and 15 assists.

Noah Welch recently did the same thing, so apparently things can’t be that bad around here for another player to agree to the conditioning assignment.

Panthers Sign Jassen Cullimore

October 28, 2008 - By

The Florida Panthers have signed defensemen Jassen Cullimore to a one year deal.  He’ll be taking the spot of Cory Murphy who is going to be out for a while with a shoulder injury.  Considering the way our Amerks defense has played so far this season, we can’t afford to lose our top defensemen Jason Garrison as a call up.
