Thompson (younger) drafted: Monday notes

In Phase 1 of the USHL draft, Tyce Thompson, Brent’s younger son, went to Dubuque in the seventh round. Christian LeSueur, of Greenwich and Brunswick, went to Sioux City in the fifth round, and Sioux City also took Tommy Craft, a defenseman from Hamden, in the ninth.

USA beats Russia; Arcobello nets winner

The young Americans came up with a big World Championship win this morning in the Czech Republic.

Three wins, franchises survive: Wednesday notes

Micheal Haley had an assist and an empty-net goal to keep Worcester alive, in the playoffs and as an AHL franchise. The Bears have another shot to close out the series at home Friday and, if necessary, Sunday. (Almost 9,000 at Giant Center on a Wednesday night. Respect.) A couple of Conor Sheary goals (20 […] [Read More]

Game 5 in Hartford: Tuesday notes

Hartford got the Game 4 win it needed to stay alive in Providence tonight. Yann Danis allowed only a power-play deflection, and Tyler Brown’s deflection of Tommy Hughes’ shot proved the game-winner in a 2-1 win at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Game 5 is Friday night at 7 in Hartford. The word from Rangers camp […] [Read More]
