Age just a number, red just a color: Tuesday notes

Kabanov, Schremp, Rakshani och Tambellini på isen samtidigt just nu. Bridgeport Soundtigers gör avtryck överallt! — Robin Figren (@figge_22) April 14, 2015 Meanwhile back in the States, Bridgeport had 15 forwards and six defensemen (with Griffin Reinhart up with the Islanders) on the ice for practice today. No Brett Gallant (who’s expected for the weekend, Brent […] [Read More]

Change in Manchester: Wednesday notes (updated)

on
For six years, Mark Morris and Scott Pellerin developed players for the Los Angeles Kings, helping them win a Stanley Cup. Pellerin came here two years ago, and the Monarchs won a division title this year. And right now they’re both out of a job. The Monarchs and Kings announced Morris won’t be back next […] [Read More]

The General Category: Monday notes

on
We can chuckle about the roughing major, but it struck me too late last night that changing it to a cross-check does have a potential effect down the road. There are two classes of game misconducts; there are stick fouls, boarding and checking-from-behind, and then there’s everything else*. You get a game’s suspension if you […] [Read More]

Had to give it a listen. (Yay, harmonica fills on […] [Read More]

JC back to Sweden/half a final set

on
Jeremy Colliton signed to play with Mora in Sweden next year. ObFWB: “He is working hard in every byte, is dangerous forwards but also backwards.” (The story seems to have been broken by one @MrMadhawk on Twitter with a delightfully vulgar tweet that I probably shouldn’t link you to directly, even though it’s vulgar in […] [Read More]

Rough start

on
It was Stanley Cup Final time on “The Americans” tonight, and those 1981 Islanders scored one more goal on TV than these Islanders did tonight. Marc-Andre Fleury got the playoff-opening shutout, but except for maybe a Casey Cizikas flurry early, the difference seemed to be the Penguins’ play at the other end. The Big Club […] [Read More]

Reunions, many miles away

on
A couple of alumni notes, with help from Elite Prospects: Tomas Marcinko to HC Kosice*, where he played before jumping to the OHL as an 18-year-old. And Matt Keith apparently goes to Austria, joining a team with quite a few familiar names. Per Katie Strang, the team where Keith had been, HC Karlovy Vary, will […] [Read More]
