A change, a suspension: Tuesday notes

(an incomplete header… fixed, slightly) Missing today at Wonderland were two names missing from Sunday’s lineup. Johan Sundstrom still isn’t feeling well, Scott Pellerin reported. But Jon Sim, a healthy scratch the past two games, was released this morning, Pellerin said. “Looking at the makeup of our team, the guys coming back, the style we’re […] [Read More]

Sim released/Two games for Cornell

More in a little, but newsy bits from the past couple of hours. Scott Pellerin said after practice that Jon Sim has been released from his PTO. Sim had been a healthy scratch the past two games and four of the past 11. After the ride home, caught the AHL’s announcement that it has given […] [Read More]

A day’s work

So they worked. They skated at the Wonderland of Ice. Awhile. Started on one sheet; went to the other. (That’s not that unusual here, but they gave both sheets a beating.) They do skating drills with coaches calling out “first period,” “second period,” “third period.” Naturally, today there was overtime. “They’re going to put in […] [Read More]

One out, one back, one new

Will have a bunch of Jon Sim for the paper tomorrow, the new guy, starting out with the fourth line (which was back to Gallant-Clark-Johnson today, Alan Quine back with Riley Wetmore and Nick Larson), battling with Dallas Jackson in the corners already. “He looks good,” Scott Pellerin said.

(Well there’s a veteran) Report: Sim returns

No weather delays (yet), no curious waivers, no midnight burps from the server: The News of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, first reports that their hometown boy Jon Sim is signing a PTO with the Sound Tigers. The team is not fond of confirming these things until the guy’s in the house, so doubt we’ll get […] [Read More]

Sim gone

So contrary to what I got told last night, whether or not Jon Sim is banged up, the Islanders told Katie Strang he just isn’t reporting to Bridgeport. And with that, they placed him on unconditional waivers to release him. Edit: Strang just tweeted that Sim plans to go to Switzerland. [Read More]

Off-day bits

Jon Sim is on waivers again. Saturday was his 10th game since his last clearance, so this may just be a chance to restart the clock. Guess we’ll see Tuesday. The Sound Tigers reassigned defenseman Matt Duffy from Kalamazoo to Gwinnett in the ECHL. All-star rosters come out tomorrow afternoon at 3. In addition to […] [Read More]

Another log on the fire

The Islanders put Jon Sim on waivers today, so there’s a chance he could be here for tomorrow’s game. It’s already a crowded house at forward for these guys. It’s the first 15-game night in AHL history, so here’s one-fifteenth of the league’s lineups: BRIDGEPORT F: Colliton (A)-Bailey-Rakhshani Svendsen-Ullstrom-Blight Labelle-Hisey-Yablonski Haley-Marcinko-Figren (Bourbeau-scratch) D: O’Neill-Klementyev Katic-Reese […] [Read More]
