Guy Howie Hanson: Tufte called up by Dallas Stars

Former local college hockey standout Riley Tufte was called up by the Dallas Stars on Thursday. The 6-foot-6, 230-pound left wing, in his third professional season, had scored a goal in three straight games for the Texas Stars in the American Hockey League. He had five goals and seven points in 10 games.

. Rookie Springfield defenseman Scott Perunovich of Hibbing leads the American Hockey League in scoring with 17 points, including two goals, in 10 games.

. The Duluth Fire Department has purchased a MultiForce Air Lifting Bag to allow firefighters to lift objects during rescue operations, thanks to a $10,000 donation from a local credit union.

“Adding the MultiForce Air Lifting Bag to our toolkit will make rescue personnel faster, safer and more versatile,” Duluth Fire Assistant Chief Dennis Edwards said in a press release. “This equipment will be used in crash rescues as well as building collapse and trench rescue operations.

“We know this will be useful on several types of calls that we respond to. Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in emergency response calls where a person is pinned under a vehicle, or a car goes through a building. This equipment will allow us to be able to have the equipment needed to lift heavy objects quickly and to stabilize the situation so that we can provide the assistance needed to save lives.”
