As seen on Twitter, a feature on Jeremy Colliton. He reports that he felt fine through the Generals’ run to the Allan Cup, which is great to hear, and that he’s planning to come back to the pro game this fall.
Bridgeport’s locker room sale is May 4, if you’re interested.
Greenwich’s John Hayden moved up to 29th in the final draft rankings from the Central Scouting Bureau. Two other Greenwich kids, Wiley Sherman and Ryan Segalla, are at 104 and 169. North Branford’s Adam Erne dropped to 26th. (Adam Tambellini, Jeff’s little brother, whose appearance on this list just makes me feel old, moved up to 42.) If you know of any other locals (aside from Mark Lofthouse’s son Trent, 126), let me know.
I could quibble with a couple of Tim Leone’s playoff picks, but not many. Agree with his final.
Onetime Sound Tiger Mathieu Aubin had a goal and an assist and 11 flippin’ shots on goal as Cincinnati took a 2-1 series lead on Gwinnett with a 5-0 win Wednesday. Dallas Jackson was on for a power-play goal but took no minus and shared the team lead with four shots.
Heard an old-tyme radio clip and had to relisten: The announcer called it “Los Angeles” with a hard G. That sent me off to find this 2011 piece in the L.A. Times about how the pronunciation evolved.
And RIP, Allan Arbus.
