Mouillierat

Forgetting the past: Binghamton postgame

on
For the sake of all that’s holy: Forgot to ask Mouillierat why he left warmup early. Other things had happened in between, like this (in the Idaho version, I think that’s Chris Bruton who follows him behind the net) and six more goals. It’d been a while since they’d gone to center ice and saluted […] [Read More]

Mouillierat goes high wrap (updated)

on
Guess Kael Mouillierat was fine, early warmup departure or no. The AHL tweeted a .gif of his opening the scoring tonight with the ol’ High Wrap, picking the puck up on his stick blade, lacrosse-style whipping it around from Peter Mannino’s right and scoring. Edit, 10:45 p.m.: Should’ve put this on earlier, but the Sound […] [Read More]

Halmo, Mouillierat, Mayfield back

on
Two-thirds of a top line — or, a third of their top six — returns tonight for the Sound Tigers. Mike Halmo’s back from injury; Kael Mouillierat’s back from the NHL. Lengthens the lineup just a tiny bit, no? Scott Mayfield comes back from his six-game suspension, too. The Sharks have one to scratch. First […] [Read More]

Snowy Thursday notes

on
Wasn’t able to get to practice this morning — fortunately didn’t land on 13 and make an accidental left; sweet merciful… — but a few moves in the organization. Ryan Toohey had last night from Naples that Kevin Czuczman is coming back up after last night’s game with the Everblades. Six games, 11 shots and […] [Read More]

That time of year: Stretch traded, Wednesday notes

on
C.J. Stretch, Brent Thompson said this morning, is a really nice player on a good team. When the Sound Tigers signed him, that’s what they were hoping to be. Oklahoma City’s leading the Western Conference; that’s what they are. They know Stretch well. And they wanted him, and today, the Sound Tigers sent him back […] [Read More]

‘Rat to the Show: Friday notes

on
The Islanders needed a forward with Mikhail Grabovski out indefinitely, and they called for Kael Mouillierat. Playing under his first NHL deal this year, he could make his NHL debut. “It’s well-deserved, well-earned, considering the course of his career,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s been one of our top forwards, one of our key players on […] [Read More]

Got one: Hartford postgame

on
That’s not playoff hockey, you know. The 60 minutes before it had its moments — the first two periods were totally Sunday-afternoon hockey, shots on goal 13-10 and whatnot, but still — and then it comes to four-on-four, and David Leggio, who’d given up one from 90 feet a period earlier, makes some big saves. […] [Read More]

Down with a fight (eventually): Springfield postgame

on
The gamer is almost exclusively about the last 35 seconds, so I’ll try to dwell on the first 59:25 here after mentioning that Brett Gallant, if nothing somehow changes, has a suspension of two automatic games coming to him, one for the instigator in the last five minutes, one for his third game misconduct (he […] [Read More]

Outshot, shot down: St. John’s postgame 1

on
Shots on goal don’t always reflect the flow of a game, the territory of a game, the possession in a game. But for two periods, these kinda did. Actually, so did the third’s, but we digress. Bridgeport led 2-0 though the IceCaps had an edge in shots and in chances, in part because of one […] [Read More]

Starting where you started from: St. John’s pregame

on
Opening day, coming back to where he established himself in this league, playing the team he helped to the Calder Cup Final: I figured it’s just another game once the puck drops, but was this day special at all for Kael Mouillierat? “Every opening day is special. It doesn’t really matter who you’re playing; you’re […] [Read More]
