One out, one back, one new

Will have a bunch of Jon Sim for the paper tomorrow, the new guy, starting out with the fourth line (which was back to Gallant-Clark-Johnson today, Alan Quine back with Riley Wetmore and Nick Larson), battling with Dallas Jackson in the corners already. “He looks good,” Scott Pellerin said. It was obviously a really tough practice today. We were able to get all the teaching points out. It’ll take him a couple of days to get used to the systems.”

Johan Sundstrom was back on the ice, but John Persson was out; upper-body injury, day to day. Otherwise, same as it has been; same seven defensemen.

Elsewhere, Ottawa recalled Nathan Lawson from Binghamton to replace the injured Craig Anderson.
