You may have seen by now that Frans Nielsen got the call to fill in for Shawn Bates. He didn’t practice today with the Sound Tigers, already off to the Island. (While these 2 p.m. practices are nice, you pay for it on the writing side.) They had a team-wide shootout competition at the end Read More

And longer term, Brandon Cullen (concussion) got another OK to ride the bike again. Chris Campoli skated with the team today but isn’t Read More
