PuckChatter~Radio is LIVE on Tuesday afternoon, May 7th at 4pm with special guest, the Voice of the AHL Rockford IceHogs, Mike Peck.
Rockford came up 1 win short of making the playoffs this season but, in doing so, became the first team in AHL's 77-year history to record 42 wins and not earn a playoff spot.

Author Mark Yost reads the first two chapters of "Cooper's Daughter," the first book in his widely acclaimed Rick Crane Noir Series from Stay Thirsty Press.
In the first chapter, we meet Rick Crane, the classic anti-hero in the mold of private eyes like Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. While Rick is having his morning coffee, he's approached by Bill Cooper, the distraught father of a young girl who was murdered. The police have quickly shuffled the case to the back of the Unsolved Crimes file, and Cooper has asked Rick to find out what really happened.
