After a season in which he played in the AHL All-Star Game and made his NHL debut, Mark Arcobello re-signed with Edmonton, the Oilers announced. He had 68 points in 74 games for Oklahoma City this year and added another 20 in 17 playoff games.
Welcome the Utica Comets.
And Notre Dame-West Haven announced it has hired Tim Belcher away from Lyman Hall to be its next head hockey coach, replacing the retired Bill Gerosa. Belcher’s a 1993 alum of NDWH.
(And just to wreck the alphabetical theme, Kael Mouillierat, who of course, no, no way could’ve helped an AHL team last year before the IceCaps finally signed him, re-upped with St. John’s.)
Evening edit: Syracuse kept the final going with a 3-2 win at Van Andel Arena. Richard Panik set up Ondrej Palat and scored himself late in the second to erase a 2-1 deficit. Game 5 is Saturday night.
