Six to eight weeks for Rakhshani

on
Rhett Rakhshani will miss six to eight weeks, Arthur Staple first reported, with what the team is calling a left-knee sprain. That takes him to mid-November at the short end. Trent Hunter earned a contract with the Kings. The ECHL’s training-camp rosters release apparently doesn’t include guys who’re in AHL camps, or the list of […] [Read More]

Staios signs/Jersey lineup

on
Tryout successful, Steve Staios has reportedly just-announcedly signed with the Islanders, adding depth to the defense here and on the Island. Meanwhile, the Isles’ lineup tonight in New Jersey. Doubt it’s the exact inverse that’ll show up in Bridgeport tomorrow night, but it might be instructive in some ways. [Read More]

Campin’ road trip

on
Cough mostly suppressed and pee wee projects done, sneaked down to the Island this morning, mostly to put together some kinda advance for Saturday (well, Saturday’s game, Friday’s paper); also collected stuff for a future story. A thought or two: –As noted by several, including this Katie Strang tweet, there’s some buzz around Aaron Ness’ […] [Read More]

First wave, advance warning?

on
Arthur Staple first reported the five Islanders on waivers: Tomas Marcinko, Trevor Frischmon, Tim Wallace, Ty Wishart, Dylan Reese. That’s most of the most-likely candidates to be sent down who’d need to clear. Sound Tigers reference in this Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon feature. Neat Kirill Kabanov story from Chris Botta. The NY Post’s Joel […] [Read More]

Rule changes ’11-12

on
The AHL posted its 2011-12 rulebook Tuesday. The worst change is a slight adjustment in the spacing in some spots. One more or fewer line per page means identical rules aren’t in the same spot when you alt-tab back and forth. Darn it. I may have missed a few unmarked changes. Let’s try anyway. 2.1 […] [Read More]
