Camp invites, farm interests: Notes on a Monday

Have been sitting on most of these links for a while, but a bit of news to spur actually posting it: The Islanders announced PTOs for Matt Carkner, Tyler Barnes and Parker Milner, all of whom are under contract to Bridgeport. Missouri, Bridgeport’s ECHL affiliate, signed Patrick Cullity and Wes Cunningham. Cunningham was briefly, twice, […] [Read More]

A few notes (Vaughan to CHI, Krys to BU)/couple of stories

–Scooter Vaughan to the Chicago Wolves. –Ridgefield’s Chad Krys says he’s going to Boston University. –Larry Brooks says the Rangers won’t be bidding on Robbie Russo, who comes off the Islanders’ reserve list tomorrow. Further afield, two NYC stories that I don’t really remember: The Bowery Boys on a fair in the Bronx — not […] [Read More]

Home again (long, windy, messy): vacation notes/bookkeeping

If you missed this afternoon’s news, Matt Carkner will return on a two-year AHL contract, and Kevin Poulin also re-signed. Wrapping up two lost weeks from there… For a few days a couple of weeks ago, I was out in Chicago, and we stayed out near O’Hare to save a few (hundred) bucks. When my […] [Read More]

(Thanks, Ray) The Amerks have a new coach, or as Kevin Oklobzija says, an old coach: Randy Cunneyworth. TEAM Old New SD-a Jarrod Skalde (4/21)  Dallas Eakins (6/26)  […] [Read More]

They’re all coaching now: Friday notes

An Adirondack-Manchester ECHL game might be worth a trip this year just for the Sound Tigers nostalgia. The Adirondack Thunder named Cail MacLean head coach Thursday. MacLean, you may remember from the 2003-04 team; Manchester recently named 2004-05 Bridgeport defenseman Rich Seeley head coach. Trumbull’s Alex Vazzano said he’s signed with Greenville, hoping for an […] [Read More]

NWHL schedule/Kevin comes back: Tuesday notes

The National Women’s Hockey League released its schedule, beginning with New York at Connecticut at Chelsea Piers in Stamford on Oct. 11. Unfortunately U.S. star Amanda Kessel won’t play her senior year at Minnesota. Concussions. Darn it. Neat note from Victor Fernandes: Kevin Putzig is leaving Erie to join the Islanders. Appears that Trumbull’s own […] [Read More]

Here and gone: Coupla Wednesday notes

The Islanders announced yesterday that Mike Halmo and Kevin Czuczman accepted their qualifying offers, so they’re under contract for next year. QOs were scheduled to expire Wednesday for Kevin Poulin and Brock Nelson, though conceivably they could’ve been extended (haven’t heard anything for sure). What’s that mean? Not much, directly. They’re still restricted free agents. […] [Read More]
