They’re all coaching now: Friday notes

on
An Adirondack-Manchester ECHL game might be worth a trip this year just for the Sound Tigers nostalgia. The Adirondack Thunder named Cail MacLean head coach Thursday. MacLean, you may remember from the 2003-04 team; Manchester recently named 2004-05 Bridgeport defenseman Rich Seeley head coach. Trumbull’s Alex Vazzano said he’s signed with Greenville, hoping for an […] [Read More]

Rule changes, calculations, Souza, DiBo?: Friday notes

on
The AHL released its rules changes and playoff format from this week’s Board of Governors meeting. It’s yet another chance for people to get worked up over the California teams’ playing 68 games as opposed to everyone else’s 76. Logically, to account for the imbalance, the playoffs in the Pacific Division — and in the […] [Read More]

Round 2. Today’s the day we expect the Islanders to actually start acknowledging the guys they’re bringing in for Bridgeport. Ren Lavoie reports another this morning: James Wright, former Admiral, Rampage, Lightning, Jet. He played last year in Zagreb, Croatia, with a bunch of former Sound Tigers at one point or another.

Free Agency ’15, Day 1: Arcobello to Toronto

We’ll work off this post unless something crazy happens to change our minds. Happy Canada Day. And Merry Christm… If July 1 UFA frenzy is like Christmas, this is a Christmas when you're too old to get fun toys and know all the gifts are pajamas or socks. — Tom Gulitti (@TGfireandice) July 1, 2015 […] [Read More]

Paliotta to Columbus

on
Three days ago, we got all excited about Stamford’s Ryan Haggerty joining Westport’s Michael Paliotta, his ex-USA Hockey teammate, with the Chicago Blackhawks after Haggerty was traded there. Today Paliotta’s gone, part of a seven-player-plus-a-pick trade that sends him with centerpiece Brandon Saad to Columbus. Marko Dano and former Ranger Artem Anisimov are the bigger […] [Read More]

Arcobello non-tendered: Monday notes

on
Assembled, to the best of our ability, the annual Chicken Tenders list: players who weren’t tendered a qualifying offer, thus becoming unrestricted free agents Wednesday. A late addition: Milford’s Mark Arcobello, not tendered by Arizona after a season in which he played for four NHL teams. (They also non-tendered John Moore, whom they got from […] [Read More]
