I know the games are all on the NHL Center Ice Package. I have that through my cable company. I was a little hesitant to get it at first, but I have to tell you it was money well spent! Just to see the World Junior games in my opinion is worth the $120 I paid for it. Not to mention the 3 or 4 Wild games each year that aren’t televised. I also love watching the Pittsburgh Penguins games. That team is fun to watch with Crosby and Malkin. I am completely sold on Crosby. That kid is the real deal! Every shift he makes something happen.

Call your cable company. I know last year they were reducing the price drastically around this time of year for the remainder of the season. It’s worth the money. If you call and get it hooked up today there are some great games on. Canada plays today at noon, the Wild play at 6:30 vs Toronto (no local TV coverage by the way), and USA plays at 8:30. Another full hockey day for me! If only there was a Gopher game on to cap it all off.

FYI....

Jeff Frazee played the final five games of the World Junior Championship for Team USA and finished with a 4-1 record, a 1.72 goals against average and a.939 save percentage. He is 11-1 in IIHF championship competition lifetime with a gold (2005 IIHF World Under-18 Championship) and bronze (2007 IIHF World Junior Championship) medal to his credit.

NOTES: Erik Johnson was named the best defenseman in the World Junior Championship by the IIHF directorate. He is only the second U.S. blueliner in the history of the event to receive the honor, joining Joe Corvo, who was honored in 1997... The U.S. had two players on the six-member media all-star team, including Erik Johnson on defense and forward Patrick Kane.

At each IIHF World Championship, awards are presented to the three best players of each team. The recipients for Team USA were defensemen Erik Johnson and Jack Johnson as well as forward Patrick Kane... Erik Johnson finished as Team USA's leading point-getter with 4-6—10 in seven games, including 1-1-2 in the bronze-medal contest. He had at least one point in each of the team's last six games... Patrick Kane was the leading goal-scorer with five. Kane had 5-4—9 in seven tournament games.

They finished with the bronze when they beat the host team Sweden 4-2.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
