No Ward, Ftorek in Adirondack

on
Coaching news Saturday afternoon from Calgary/Abbotsford/Adirondack, and disappointing most likely to New Haven fans of a certain age: The Flames announced that Troy G. Ward and Robbie Ftorek won’t accompany the team across the country. TEAM Old New BPT Scott Pellerin (5/2)  Brent Thompson (5/2)  MCR Mark Morris (5/7) — HER Mike Haviland (Colorado Coll., […] [Read More]

Adding Boyle: Thursday notes

on
Jaro Halak worked out for the Big Club. Thursday, they went at it again, sending a conditional draft pick to San Jose for veteran defenseman Dan Boyle. If they sign him, it’s more defensive depth, an older guy, obviously (37), but one who’s been a top player for a long time. If not, it’s a […] [Read More]

Worlds notes: Late early for U.S.

on
Catching up… It’s a long tournament as these things go, the World Championship, especially under the current format. But it’s getting a lot shorter for the United States after Thursday morning’s 6-5 loss to Latvia (Brock Nelson had two, and Herberts Vasiljevs got what turned out to be the winner) and a 4-3 overtime win […] [Read More]

Fives wild: Wednesday notes/Worlds locals

on
All three AHL games had a five-goal period tonight, a different period in each game, and two of the three needed overtime. After Providence scored two goals in the first 66 seconds of the third, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton had to come back from three goals down in the last 13 minutes to force overtime. It took over […] [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]

Whited out: Tuesday notes

on
It snowed in St. John’s. No, really*. Snowed. Like mad, apparently. Didn’t cool off Norfolk, which won its fourth in a row, with the winner from John Kurtz, who had five goals in the regular season and 14 in his AHL career. Playoff hockey, baby. John Gibson made 42 saves, and rookie Nic Kerdiles had […] [Read More]

Less-than-magic numbers: Late Wednesday notes

on
Stockton added Mathieu Gagnon and Andrey Pedan to their roster, leaving one spot open for everybody else. Adirondack beat Syracuse in a shootout, relegating Bridgeport to last place in the Northeast Division. (Adam Erne of North Branford scored his first pro goal for the Crunch.) Portland lost in a shootout to Albany (clinching a Devils […] [Read More]

Second game of the roadie at Adirondack tonight. We’ll be listening to Bob Rotruck (A href=”http://tunein.com/radio/Q1017-s28560/”>audio/video) and following Corey, Diana, Bob and the Phantoms on Twitter. With Michael Grabner back and emergency conditions terminated, the Islanders sent Johan Sundstrom down this afternoon. Wouldn’t imagine he gets to Glens Falls, but we’ll see, as well as […] [Read More]

Hockey in New Haven: Wednesday notes

on
While Yale and Fairfield’s staffs take over Webster Bank Arena this weekend, the Sound Tigers borrow Yale’s barn. Bridgeport will practice at Ingalls Rink the next three days. (We’ll probably miss out, over with the Fairfield and Yale folks.) No apparent changes to the roster today. Slackers. Tonight Roy Sommer coached his 1,257th AHL game, […] [Read More]
