Tip of the hat to frequent commenter John, who noticed that Jeff Hamilton and AK Bars Kazan have parted ways. I haven’t heard word yet on where he’ll land. As noted in the news item on Kazan’s site, Hamilton went eight games without a point but racked up 16 penalty minutes. (He also, according to […] [Read More]

Kevin catches up to dad

Kevin Colley is in the Islanders’ lineup tonight to take Petteri Nokelainen’s spot. It’s Kevin’s NHL debut, and I wouldn’t want to be the first Rangers defenseman he can line up.

…and sadly I had nowhere to put it… From Darien’s own Ryan Shannon of the Pirates, talking about the pro game: “It’s more intense. There’s always a chance you might get your head knocked off.” And while we’re on the gamer: Rest in peace, Rich… [Read More]

As the Sound Tigers prepare for their fifth-season home opener, here’s the lightning primer on the franchise’s history and first four seasons… 2000: Bridgeport? Of the American Hockey League? Roy Boe. Todd Boe. Peter Ricciardi. Brian Kelley. Brian Keegan — who’s still here. Harbor Yard arena goes up; the Islanders come up. 2001: Beach Tigers? […] [Read More]

*-Dave Guard, 10/19/34-3/22/91 So the monthly mailbag idea didn’t draw any e-mails. (Well, it drew one, asking to be added to my mailing list. The problem is, the monthly mailbag idea is kind of the reverse of that. Nice to be remembered, though.) So for the heck of it, a one-off: commenting on the comments. [Read More]
