After today’s loss to Nashville, the Islanders sent Kevin Poulin back down.
A report from Yaroslavl has Anton Klementyev joining Lokomotiv. (Saw it from Dmitry Chesnokov on Twitter.) Certainly the logical destination. Anyway, the Islanders report no change in his status as far as they’re concerned.
(ObFWGoogle Translate is a different variety today, which throws cold water on all OBFWGT we’ve had: Somehow, though the original Russian says he played for the New York Islanders (“Нью-Йорк Айлендерс”), the translation renders that as “New Jersey.” Chilling.)
Elsewhere, the Lightning called up Trevor Smith.
Always good for a read on this day: let freedom ring.
And finally, with Albany’s win over Adirondack today, first through fourth in the
Berkshire League Northeast are separated by only two points, and first through fifth by five. (Granted, wildly differing games played, and on top of that, the Whale, in first place in the division, have only the seventh-best record in the conference. But still.)
Try it again: See you Tuesday. We’ll chat on this post.
Edit: To break stuff out from the chat, Nic Riopel and Joey Haddad (the latter after skating Tuesday) have been released from PTOs. Jeremy Colliton skated and is making progress. Also, regarding a late question, I spaced on Montoya: He was never on IR, as Eric Hornick noted on Twitter in the afternoon. Team won’t have an official practice Wednesday, but we’ll update as necessary.
