Pedan to Stockton, attrition: Thursday notes

on
He wasn’t cracking the top six here with the present cast, so Andrey Pedan got a seat on a plane… though not the best seat. He’ll join Stockton for the Thunder’s two games in Idaho this weekend. Brent Thompson said he’ll be back, but he’s got to play, and with eight defensemen, he wasn’t expected […] [Read More]

Off-day bits: Wednesday notes

on
Team got the day off today. Two further days of practice before Saturday’s trip to Albany, then Springfield in town Sunday (with the president across town). Mike Russo says referee Dave Lewis broke his jaw last night in Boston. Fits right in with the Wild. Of course, who isn’t hurt in Boston right now? (Mark […] [Read More]

Familiar line change/Huskies vs. Bobcats: Tuesday notes

on
One swap — well, one and a half — from Sunday’s lines to note: A trio we saw a bit Sunday, Lee-Quine-Mouillierat, was together, giving a longer look at Alan Quine in the middle and Kael Mouillierat on the wing. That put Sebastian Collberg where Quine started Sunday, with Mike Halmo and Johan Sundstrom. Mark […] [Read More]

6D evidently overrated: Albany Postgame

on
Fairly sure Griffin Reinhart played more tonight than in his last two NHL games combined. For the second time in three games, a defenseman was missing most of the night (see the pregame post for Aaron Ness’ update; tonight, Andrey Pedan gets the ever-popular interference major/game misconduct for a hit on Stefan Matteau). Then with […] [Read More]

Chemistry lessons ’15: Thursday notes

on
Another few tweaks to the top-nine forwards this morning: Lee-Mouillierat-Collberg, Persson-Quine-Halmo, Zolnierczyk-Sundstrom-Gillies. “Chemistry,” Brent Thompson said. “Just trying to find chemistry.” It’s that time of year. It was Game 7 last year when Lee-Strome-Halmo first started together. Lukas Sutter has an AHL deal, as Darrell Romuld reported; the lone tryout remaining is Colton Gillies. It […] [Read More]

JJ goes home: Tuesday/Wednesday notes

on
Still on vacation but checking in on Twitter: A few moves the past couple of days, including one of note today as Justin Johnson goes home, signing with the Alaska Aces. Tim Leone meets Jon Landry; good stuff ensues. Darien’s Kevin Sullivan, off an NCAA title with Union, signs with Cincinnati. Ryan Walters’ agent says […] [Read More]

Remembering, three years later: weekend notes

on
Sept. 7 remains a great day in lots of ways for me: important family day, and it’s the anniversary of the blog (entering its 10th season, somehow). But now it’s also the anniversary of the Lokomotiv plane crash. Still devastating to think about checking the Yaroslavl roster page over at EliteProspects that night three years […] [Read More]

What’s on sale: Tuesday notes

on
The sale of the Islanders doesn’t sound as if it includes Harbor Yard Sports and Entertainment at the moment. That’s what we heard from Bridgeport, most directly from Howard Saffan. He’s impressed with both new owners. They’ll take their two years and see how everything goes. As of now, Saffan said, HYS&E isn’t involved. Two […] [Read More]

Penguins come back (2x): Saturday notes

on
The story Friday in Wilkes-Barre was whether Chuck Kobasew, out since St. John’s Game 1, or Andrew Ebbett, out since the Binghamton series. could return for Saturday’s Game 5. Four points later, yes, yes they can. Game 6 is Tuesday in St. John’s after the Penguins tied it with 7:30 left, won it with under […] [Read More]

Worlds board/high school boarding majors: Tuesday notes

on
It’ll be USA-Czech Republic bright ‘n’ early Thursday morning in the Worlds quarterfinals. The United States won both those must-win games and finished second, taking Tuesday morning’s game 5-4 against Germany. Matt Donovan had one of the Americans’ four go-ahead goals. Johnny Gaudreau’s did it for good. Ovechkinless Russia still beat Belarus to keep the […] [Read More]
