The Islanders announced today the signing of Peter Ferraro.
blah blah blah
Islanders. On Islanders release, headline says Islanders, lead says Islanders.
Confusion probably comes when the Sound Tigers send out a release and those doing transactions don’t see the Islanders’.
The difference would be that it would indicate he was signed to a one-way AHL deal and in order to get called up he would need to be signed to a contract with the Islanders at that time. Same situation that Freddy Cloutier found himself in last season when the Islanders suddenly needed a backup for Wade and had to sign Cloutier to a NHL deal because he was only on an AHL contract.
in the transactions it says BST signed Ferraro. Did they? What would be the difference?
Peter Ferraro will be a great player to have. His experience will be very helpful and he can still score.
