I talked to Iowa coach Derek Lalonde about a variety of subjects, including Gustav Olofsson, Teemu Pulkkinen being named AHL Player of the Week with five goals and two assists in four games and Nick Seeler's knockout of Connor Brickley the other night

It was a scary moment as Brickley was knocked out and had to be taken to a local hospital after being removed on a stretcher.

Brickley took a long, fast, illegal run at Zach Palmquist and Seeler was standing up for his defense partner.

"He was doing the right thing," Lalonde said of Seeler. "He was doing what he felt was right and instinctive, which we preach as a team all the time and I appreciate.

''Their guy took a run and put our D-man in a very vulnerable position. He stuck up for a teammate. It was one of those scary moments. ... Nick came right to the coaches room immediately after the game and wanted to know how he was."

Lalonde said from what he understands, Brickley is OK other than a concussion.
