Awaiting arrivals, remembering departures: Tuesday notes

The only new face on the ice this morning for Bridgeport was Kent Simpson, up from Stockton, just in time for yet another hard skate. The other additions — Dustin Jeffrey, acquired for Cory Conacher yesterday; Mark Louis, for David Leggio; and Dyson Stevenson, last night for Matt Lashoff in an AHL deal — were […] [Read More]

Conacher, Leggio traded

The Islanders have traded Cory Conacher to Vancouver for Dustin Jeffrey. 2:16 p.m.: Jeffrey was leading Utica in scoring with 17-24-41. No word if he’s coming here or up there yet. That’s two former WBS Penguins acquired by the Islanders today. Meanwhile, David Leggio’s agent tweets that Leggio has been traded to Phoenix. Awaiting word […] [Read More]

Three in threes: WBS postgame

I don’t want to say this game kind of stuck out in August, but this game kind of stuck out in August. Three in threes against non-three-in-three teams… They just ain’t easy. Toss in giving up a goal 70 seconds in, they get nearer to impossible. And give Bridgeport credit, like Brent Thompson said: Their […] [Read More]

Leggio day-to-day/Andrey’s gone: Wednesday notes

Bridgeport practiced this morning a man short on defense — Andrey Pedan’s got a game tonight for Utica — and, for a while, with an extra goalie. But David Leggio departed early. “It depends how his body responds,” Brent Thompson said. “Right now, the big thing for me is I don’t know how he’s going […] [Read More]

Simpson up for Leggio

The Sound Tigers announced this afternoon that Kent Simpson is coming up from Stockton. Reportedly David Leggio’s got something minor. The team had today off after skating yesterday. Simpson, acquired from Chicago in the Nick Leddy deal, played one game for Stockton after he was reassigned there Nov. 17. He won it 7-4, making 27 […] [Read More]

Blasting away: Hartford postgame 2

Normally I write about something, and… well, it’s like the SI cover jinx. Sometimes it’s just regression to the mean. But last week I wrote Griffin Reinhart, and he got hurt. This week, I wrote Ryan Pulock to advance the weekend… and he’s got three goals in two games. It struck me even last night […] [Read More]

Unusual circumstances, changes: Friday notes

Rulebook geekery plus rarity equals much fun Presumably the last word on the Leggio Adventure this week, about the Leggio Rule, from David Leggio himself after the AHL rewrote Rule 63.5 yesterday to give a goalie a game misconduct for such a play: “If that’s what they feel is best for the game, I agree […] [Read More]

Leggio Rule: game misconduct

As Darren Dreger reported, there’s now what you could call a David Leggio Rule, effective immediately, in the AHL. A goalie who deliberately displaces a goal post while facing a breakaway will receive a game misconduct. Such a play will still result in a penalty shot, but that goalie won’t be around for it. This […] [Read More]
