The Fairbanks Ice Dogs won their second Robertson Cup National Championship in the last four years as they defeated the Austin Bruins in Game 2 of the best of three Robertson Cup Finals series, 6-2 on Saturday night in front of a sold out crowd in Fairbanks. It is the Ice Dogs second Robertson Cup National Championship, having also won the event in 2011.

Their passion leaked out once the scoreboard clock overhead drained to all zeroes, when they rushed their goaltender and mobbed him, when the Kelly Cup was theirs for the lifting, when the beers were busted out, and definitely when they repaired to their dressing room here at U.S. Bank Arena to crank the music, scream their delight and savor the celebration with friends and family.

But until the final horn signaled game's end and the Alaska Aces were ECHL champions for the third time in franchise history, they proved as cold-bloodedly lethal as snipers.

Ever wonder how a full-sized sheet of ice looks through a child's eyes? USA Hockey put adult players on a hockey rink scaled to simulate what a child experiences when they play full-ice hockey. The results weren't pretty.

Cross Ice Hard Dividers Have Arrived


Cross ice hard dividers hits ASHA rink!  

AHA and ASHA teamed up to purchase the first set of hard cross ice dividers in Alaska. Stationed at the Dempsey Anderson II rink, the Boards made their inaugural debute Saturday 3:45 pm as AHA hosted the Allstsrs and the Mustang to a cross ice Red White and Blue jamboree.  The event was a huge success.

ASHA thanks Barrette Heisten and AHA for their leadership role and contribution to the advancement of developmental hockey in a Alaska. AHA is selling advertising on the dashes for those interested in the fund raiser to get the next set of these amazing boards.

Soon, there will be another set of hard cross ice dividers at the Brett Memorial Ice Arena as Mat-Su and ASHA have partnered to acquire a set for the Wasilla facility. The MTA Events Center will have a set shortly thanks to the hard work from Tracy Kalytiak and PAHA who secured the independent funding for their upcoming set of the hard ice divider boards.

It is ASHA's hope that we will see more coming to all the rinks.
