Winter Hawks

Next: Portland plays host to Kamloops at 7:30 tonight and Chilliwack at 5 p.m. Sunday, both in Memorial Coliseum.

Notes: Hawk President Jack Donovan says the ship carrying the four new big replay screens and 16 televisions for Memorial Coliseum 'has been on the high seas for about eight days,' and should reach Los Angeles in a couple of weeks. There, shipment to Portland could be delayed by security inspection. 'Our hopes and dreams are that they will be up and running by Thanksgiving,' he says. Donovan adds that the screens and TVs are 'brand-spankin' new … with all the top technology that's out today.'

Coach Mike Williamson emphatically says captain Kyle Bailey 'has been good,' along with Rob Klinkhammer and others in terms of leadership. But the Hawks could rotate the captaincy and assistant captaincies, per their plans, on Wednesday.
