A win? In Wilkes-Barre?

on
Trevor Smith gives his seal of approval to the light-up nets that Wilkes-Barre uses. He didn’t see the puck go in when he scored, but he saw the posts light up. At least, until Sean Bentivoglio almost killed him in the celebration. Just a gritty, get-it-done road effort, contributions up and down the lineup. And […] [Read More]

Time to Fret

on
Kimber noted it earlier, and it’s apparently still the case that Colton Fretter’s gear hasn’t arrived in town. If he’s not in, that’s why… [Read More]

Deadlines tracker

on
I actually thought this would be a busier deadline for Bridgeport/NYI, either in departed prospects or in dumped UFAs. The middle ground — somewhat quiet — isn’t bad. Nothing like two years ago, when the playoff race was basically set and everyone’s parents were sellers. But still, around the East now that it’s over: PHILADELPHIA […] [Read More]

Deadline 2

on
The Sound Tigers haven’t done this before: Colton Fretter is the first player the Sound Tigers have ever acquired after the NHL deadline and then placed on their Clear Day list. (Stephen Wood last year was the first one they had ever acquired, in that swap for Peter Ferraro, but Wood didn’t get a spot […] [Read More]

New player: Colton Fretter

on
Had just left Shelton when word came down that forward Colton Fretter is coming from the Wolves. Update: It’s an AHL trade, because he’s on an AHL deal; “future considerations” go the other way, which probably amounts to “nothing.” Also, Jason Pitton is going to have shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Quiet middle day

on
No sooner do I type that header than we get the first loan deal of the day: Nolan Baumgartner back to Manitoba. The Tigers are quiet so far. Robert Nilsson and Petteri Nokelainen were among those papered-down to the AHL yesterday for Clear Day eligibility. Ottawa fired John Paddock. Nice bit in the NYTimes about […] [Read More]

Ain't that a shame*

on
Jeff Hamilton, waived a while ago, got assigned to Albany this afternoon. A late deal: Tampa sent Jay Leach to Anaheim for Brandon Segal. Just like Keith-Bootland: The Ads were in Portland, so they just swapped dressing rooms. Was going to post a team-by-team look at the deadline, but I’m thinking of waiting until Thursday; […] [Read More]
