Newtown to National team: Monday notes

on
“Where’s my spy camera?” Patience. Newtown’s Melissa Samoskevich was chosen for the U-22 select national team that’ll face Canada later this month. Former future Sound Tigers defenseman Robbie Russo signed with Detroit less than 24 hours after falling off the Islanders’ reserve list. Michael Pelech, Adam’s brother, signed with Norfolk (ECHL). I may have to […] [Read More]

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

on
–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]

Hockey, Day (KC1): A visit to an Island

on
Called up the blog template on this computer for the first time since the last day of the year. Deleted out all the templates for penalty minutes, top-scoring defensemen, Alan Quine with the most assists since…. Ah well. But hey, kiddie camp, rebirth, new hope and whatnot. Arrived at the gleaming, if bankrupt, Twin Rinks […] [Read More]

Pulock (and Pokka) named all-rookie

on
The AHL’s all-rookie team includes a Sound Tiger for the seventh time in 14 years: Ryan Pulock’s 17 goals helped earn him the honor, as the league announced today. Pulock is joined on the team by Islanders draft pick Ville Pokka, who has 30 points and rates a plus-2 for Rockford. Pokka was technically assigned […] [Read More]

Ness and fog: Wednesday notes

on
Sounds like cautiously optimistic news on Aaron Ness. Though Brent Thompson said he was waiting on the results of Ness’ MRI, “as far as the day-to-day recovery, he seems to be getting stronger, moving a little bit,” Thompson said. The warm, muggy weather outside carried inside as well: The glass was misted over, the ice […] [Read More]

Squared away: Saturday notes

on
Notes from the stats update: Scooter Vaughan scored three short-handed goals, which led AHL rookies (as well as, um, defensemen, though that’s obviously bookkeeping; he was playing forward). Appears he’s the first Bridgeport rookie to score three short-handed goals. (Frans Nielsen did it in 2006-07, but he had too much European experience to be considered […] [Read More]

Strome all-rookie (Langlois, too)

on
Ryan Strome obviously had a remarkable rookie year for Bridgeport, though you had to wonder whether voters planned to focus on that brilliance in a short period of time (crazy stat in tomorrow’s notebook; meanwhile, despite playing just 37 games, Strome’s still sixth among rookie scorers) or would reward those who’d been in the AHL […] [Read More]

‘Tigers are hot': Providence postgame

on
Shots were something like 17-3 at one point in the first, all Providence. There are times that doesn’t say much about the territorial game, but tonight, yeah, it did. Totally. The first was the Bruins’, except for Kenny Reiter, who shook off four weeks’ rust after a couple of minutes and was brilliant the rest […] [Read More]
