Ever wonder how there came to be two associations in PAHL with the BADGERS nickname? According to the links below, Allegheny adopted the name in 1992 and Beaver adopted the name shortly thereafter in 1993. Both associations were proudly honoring the late Badger Bob Johnson of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Badger Bob coached the Pens to their first Stanley Cup in 1991, but passed away shortly after the victory.

Looked into this a bit. Icemen 2017-18 final rank 33/112 (29th percentile) 2018-19 current rank 85/153 (56th percentile) Vengeance 2017-18 final rank 87/112 (78th percentile) 2018-19 current rank 107/153 (70th percentile) Predators 2017-18 final rank 95/112 (85th percentile) 2018-19 current rank 113/153 (74th percentile) Icemen have slipped a bit. Was kind of surprised by that. Other two programs not exactly spotlight material but seem to have improved.
Just caught film on this one. Curious to see this great big brawl. Instead, the video shows about 4-5 kids engaged in some wrestling for a grand total of about 15-20 seconds and the teams separate. Not exactly the train wreck that everyone's making it out to be. The box score is way overblown on this. Are the teams innocent? No. But would hate to be one of the 11-12 kids with fighting majors and game misconducts. Those suspended kids are getting totally screwed. Mid-Am or PAHL needs to step in here and right this wrong for those kids. Fix these majors and misconducts. Use the video. Get it right, while you still can.
