They belong to the World: off-day notes

on
The United States team that’ll seek our first non-Olympic world championship since 1933 will include Matt Donovan and Brock Nelson, USA Hockey announced Tuesday. The tournament’s in Belarus beginning May 9, and Peter Laviolette was named coach of the team earlier in the day. The Flyers were busy, signing Andrew MacDonald to a massive contract […] [Read More]

Springfield postgame: I mean, come on

on
Seriously. “We had a couple of mistakes on the penalty kill that cost us,” Scott Pellerin said. “It’s going to happen in a game. We had some other opportunities to finish, to get two points; 5.4 seconds away from getting a point? Come on.” No way: That’s what I said. He’s frustrated, and it’s hard […] [Read More]

Round 2: Late Thursday notes

on
Brett Gallant vs. George Parros tonight. Did a heck of a job. I feel like I could’ve written twice what I wrote on Gallant’s NHL debut (Friday’s paper, would you?). Space allowed what it allowed, so some stuff hit the floor, but one bit I had to share. Brett’s dad was awesome to chat with […] [Read More]

Vaughan re-ups: Thursday notes

on
Scooter Vaughan’s PTO was set to expire this weekend. Good news for him and the Sound Tigers: He’ll be here a lot longer than that. Vaughan signed an AHL deal for next season, earning his way to a contract with a solid second half of the year, moving from defense to forward, staying in the […] [Read More]

Gallant to The Show

on
Brett Gallant’s an NHLer. Fresh off yesterday’s record-setter, Gallant got the call from the Isles today. After 141 AHL games, the last 140 of them here, he could make his NHL debut tomorrow. Got to be one of the neater call-ups for this team, a guy who came up that first time, we figured, as […] [Read More]

Who are these guys: Hershey pregame

on
Matt Watkins, one of the first guys out for warmup for Hershey, was the captain of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at the end of last season. He played with only three guys dressed for Bridgeport tonight. Steve Oleksy only played with three, too, but that’s only because of Chris Langkow, who obviously left and came […] [Read More]

Everybody’s (been) here: Springfield pregame

on
Including the new guys, Victor Crus Rydberg, Brant Harris and Mathieu Gagnon — that’s all, right? Nobody else new since yesterday? — there’ve been 26 forwards here since the AHL trade deadline. Seriously, 26 in less than a month. Nine of those are down in the Coast; two are up. The D corps has been […] [Read More]

Playoffs somewhere: Monday notes

on
Bridgeport treated today’s practice a little like a morning skate, Scott Pellerin said, complete with the forwards all wearing orange rather than different colors for different lines. That’s OK. A slew of Sound Tigers weren’t there anymore. Stockton should be loaded up next month. Bridgeport sent Matt Mangene, Jeremy Langlois and Riley Wetmore to the […] [Read More]

Couple of Monday notes

on
A packed house at forward again/still, with Chris Bruton seemingly closer to returning. Adam Brace was here this morning but this afternoon is on the transactions as going back to Stockton. The playoffs in junior hockey are in full swing. There are a couple of series in which Islanders draft picks are playing each other, […] [Read More]
