Welcome to the Morning Dump and Chase! Your one-stop shop for hockey news and notes from around the bus leagues.
We’re trying this out, and hope to feature stuff that isn’t news, maybe opinions, or little snippets that might be of interest to fans of the various leagues we give coverage to. We’ll start with trying to post this every Monday, and once the season gets started or closer, maybe we can ramp it up to 2-3 times a week.
We call it the morning Dump and Chase, because well you read it before/after having your morning cup of coffee, and we chase down the links for you to put them all in one handy spot.
We apologize for it going up late today, but we didn’t think to make a logo for this until late last night, and at that point I was not on my computer that has PhotoShop!
Here are this week’s links!
