Kabanov on unconditional waivers/(updated) signings, notes

on
Kirill Kabanov, a character, funny — hilarious at times. Still aggravated coaches and earned himself an early-season trip to Stockton this year. Injury muddled up his first pro season here; the second ended with assignment to Sweden. Won’t be a third, at least not here: Ren Lavoie broke that the Islanders have placed Kabanov on […] [Read More]

Belated tip of cap, JC: Monday notes

on
I don’t know how I missed this, but Jeremy Colliton announced his retirement earlier this month in Sweden. Concussions. Brutal. (In talking with someone about the Dane Byers hit on Aaron Ness a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned it being about 100 feet (I was off by 30-40) from where Colliton took that hit […] [Read More]

Kabanov overseas

on
MoDo announced this afternoon that Kirill Kabanov has been loaned over there for the rest of the season. It’s probably a good move for everyone. Kabanov had been a healthy scratch quite a bit, including three of the past six games here, and sure looked like it was headed at least for four of seven […] [Read More]

Shuffled deck, familiar hand

on
So we’d heard Tuesday night that Kirill Kabanov was on his way back, that Sean Wiles was on his way in, that it sure looked like Chris Langkow was joining them. True on all of them come this morning — though Kabanov’s still en route — but the other half of that equation turned out […] [Read More]

Kabanov to Stockton

on
The Islanders reassigned Kirill Kabanov to Stockton (ECHL) this afternoon. They’re framing it as a hockey decision; get him more minutes, work on his game in both ends, and so forth, sing along, and playing on the third line, he probably could use some more time. His “personal-reasons” absence this morning suggested more, and a […] [Read More]

Kabanov in, Sundstrom out

on
So after the first off-day with NHL hockey to watch (was stuck with the Tampa Bay feed yesterday afternoon — missing channels on your free preview? It’s Comcastic! — but it was a good broadcast; Rick Peckham’s always nice to hear, and apparently Ullstrom-Aucoin-McDonald would be fun at any level), the Sound Tigers got back […] [Read More]

Full house…

on
…and maybe getting fuller. Bridgeport’s injured players were, except for Calvin de Haan, all on for the full practice Friday, and the only one in red (no-contact) was Kirill Kabanov. And Scott Pellerin said Kabanov could be ready to take contact Monday. Progress. Matt Watkins, John Persson and Marc Cantin were all back in full-contact […] [Read More]

A new start

on
A note before the news of the day: Bridgeport’s auction for Sandy Hook has begun. Some nice stuff from around the hockey world. Same lines. Same pairs. But something coming. Scott Pellerin said he hadn’t talked with the Islanders yet about the plan for the near future, what decisions they might make about the lineup […] [Read More]

Springing back

on
The team says they’re expecting a full recovery from Kirill Kabanov; it announced this morning he had surgery on the cut to his left wrist in Worcester. His recovery timetable is TBA, after he’s evaluated. (The team said that’ll happen Monday. Hopefully we’re a functioning society Monday. #sandy) Kabanov (whose parents were at the game […] [Read More]

One to four losses

on
Calvin de Haan’s out for the year. Anders Nilsson, nothing new on him. And now Kirill Kabanov and Nathan McIver get hurt in this clinker for Bridgeport. They weren’t sharing details on Kabanov, beyond a cut to the wrist, immediately after the game, but the simple fact that they flagged down the referee to blow […] [Read More]
