Amerks Defenseman is now The Legend of Joe Finley with the Sabres

Amerks Defenseman is now The Legend of Joe Finley with the Sabres

After 5pm on Wednesday evening the Buffalo Sabres gave Joe Finley a call and let him know he was being called up from the Rochester Americans to the show just two days after signing an NHL contract with the team.  Jordan Leopold was injured Tuesday night which created an opening for Big Joe to get called up.  That’s when the trend #LegendofJoeFinley thanks to @LeopoldsIpod started in Twitter (A stick tap is also in order for @Philbbg who started #LegendofZackKassian that all of this really spawned off of).  The hashtag was a trend all evening in Buffalo and his last name was a trend all night in Rochester as well which adds even more to the.. legen… wait for it… dary status of him as a hockey player.  Barney Stinson is proud.

Finley has been talked about by everyone who’s been going to Rochester Americans games this season.  We’ve all been impressed by the guy in just about every game played.  You can read my article from Tuesday (Big Joe Finley Strong on Defense) about how he plays and his past which includes everything from coming back from injuries, throwing lawn mowers and hitting Bucky the [...]Read More

Emmerson, Dadonov, and other AHL News

September 3, 2009 - By

The Amerks are expected to release their training camp roster within a week, so until that happens we’re short on Amerks news but plenty of news from other places.

** Evgeni or Evgeny (depending on the day of the week it seems) Dadonov has officially signed his entry level contract with the Florida Panthers and it was accepted by the NHL.  He hasn’t played a game yet for the organization but he’s been in the news more than anyone else.

** Riley Emmerson signed a contract with the Springfield Falcons, affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers.  He improved throughout last season and earned plenty of ice time for an enforcer.  He never backed down from a challenge and always put up a good fight.  There’s pleny of videos of Emmersons fights in the video section of this site.  The Oilers signed Steve MacIntrye last season off of waivers from the Panthers/Amerks and this season they’ve taken someone else.  The Amerks had not shown any interest in Emmerson.

** 29 Teams in 29 Days is a series that Chris Rahn (a writer for Inside Hockey) just started over on his site about American Hockey League news.  He has [...]Read More

American Hockey League Teams on Twitter

July 9, 2009 - By

As the 2009/2010 season approaches it appears as if the American Hockey League is finally represented within the Twitter universe.

Twitter is a great service for sports fans due to the fact that news can usually be summed up in less than 140 characters leaving out all of the extra fluff that accompanies articles.

If you’re new to Twitter I’m going to list some ways to effectively use the site and follow teams, if you’re just looking for the list of teams scroll down.

By following LetsGoAmerks (and other teams) on Twitter you’ll be able to get live updates about the Rochester Americans with scores, injuries, transactions (call ups and players being signed), game day lineups, media appearances, and much more.  If you scan through the updates I’ve posted I think you’ll notice it’s a all great info.  Also taking a moment to brag, LetsGoAmerks offers the best coverage of any AHL team on Twitter.


The old fashioned way of bookmarking web sites is still the easiest for a lot of people.  Simply save your favorite teams page as a bookmark and refresh it whenever you want to check for updates, no need to sign up for an account!
