For those interested, Schell scored his first goal in his first game.
It wasn't a glamorous goal... it was one of those goals that had the speed of molasses and just barely crossed the line while the goalie was diving backwards from being out of position - but it was a goal no less! I had the chance to chat after the game and he is happily making himself right at home with the team.
BTW, is it pronounced SHell, or SNell? That sounds like a stupid question, but our commentators say SNell. Confused the crap out of me.
They usually pronounce it Schnell or Snell up here in our small rinks in Saskatchewan. As most people don't seem to notice there is not an N anywhere in the name. Don't worry, I am sure he does not care how they say it, he is there to play and play well.
It's pronounced just like it's spelled. They must have read it wrong, or someone typed it wrong on the game notes. That happens way more times than it should in the minors.
That's what's weird though. Our commentators are great, and they make sure they know how to exactly pronounce a guys name before saying it. I've never heard them goof on a name before. That's why I was so confused.
