Rearranged lineup: Wednesday practice

on
Missing today were Andrew Rowe and Tyler Shattock, let go from their tryouts, and Loic Leduc, sent to Stockton. All three got praise from Brent Thompson, who said Leduc may have been the most-improved player in camp. Just not a lot of room at this point: They’re at 15 forwards, eight defensemen and three goalies. […] [Read More]

Remade defense: Boychuk, Leddy in; Pokka, Brennan out

on
Arthur Staple was all over the Islanders’ late-camp revamp of their defense corps today. The Big Club traded from numbers back there and from draft picks to acquire Johnny Boychuk from the cap-pressured Bruins for two second-round draft picks and a conditional third-rounder, then Nick Leddy and goalie Kent Simpson from cap-squeezed Chicago for prospect […] [Read More]

Roster takes shape: Islanders cuts

The Islanders as promised dropped their big set of cuts just before noon, sending 11 players here: Sebastian Collberg, Brett Gallant, Mike Halmo, Kael Mouillierat, John Persson, Alan Quine, Johan Sundstrom, Scott Mayfield, Andrey Pedan, Adam Pelech and Ville Pokka. Arthur Staple reported as well that David Leggio, Kevin Poulin, Aaron Ness, Jack Skille and […] [Read More]

First Islanders cuts

on
The Islanders’ first cuts include Sebastian Collberg, Jesse Graham, Loic Leduc, Andrey Pedan and Adam Pelech, assigned to Bridgeport. Sound Tigers contracts Chris Langkow, Scooter Vaughan, C.J. Stretch, Mark Nemec and Philippe Trudeau were also released from assorted NHL tryouts. Unsigned draft pick Lukas Sutter was also sent to Bridgeport’s camp, which Arthur Staple noted […] [Read More]

Vanek for Collberg

on
The Islanders traded Thomas Vanek to Montreal at the wire, bringing back Sebastian Collberg, a 20-year-old right winger, under contract per CapGeek but playing at home with Frolunda (SHL). There are conditional draft picks reported in a few different directions contingent on the Habs’ making the playoffs. Collberg was the 33rd pick in the 2012 […] [Read More]

AMac for Mangene (and some picks)

on
The Islanders have traded mainstay Andrew MacDonald for a Maine Black Bear and two draft picks. MacDonald goes to the Flyers; they get two picks and Matt Mangene, second-year pro forward who’s been with Adirondack. Capgeek has him a restricted free agent after this year. Edit: As you’d expect, AHL transactions have Mangene assigned to […] [Read More]

Isles cut to 23

on
Nothing stunning in what the Islanders did today to get to 23. Matt Donovan and Brock Nelson stick, as does Griffin Reinhart, at least for the moment. They kept 13-8-2, sending down Joe Finley along with most of the cast that you pretty much figured were on the way. If Nelson and Donovan were in, […] [Read More]

Finley on waivers

on
Bob McKenzie first reported this morning that Joe Finley is on waivers. If he clears, he’s eligible to be sent to Bridgeport. Finley has been practicing with that Syosset/don’t-call-it-Bridgeport group. This seems to point in a direction, but of course final decisions aren’t due until tomorrow afternoon. The Islanders play their last Grapefruit-League split-squad games […] [Read More]

First cuts ’13/Quine signs (updated)

on
Basically the only two people who survived that mini-Sound Tigers camp this week were two tryouts. Sean Wiles and Brayden Irwin remain on their PTOs; the rest of the cast is headed for California. Assigned to Stockton were Mathieu Coderre-Gagnon, Ben Rosen, Nick Larson, Sean Escobedo and Parker Milner. Released from their tryouts and sent […] [Read More]

Sound Tigers sign five

on
The Sound Tigers just announced five signings, some we’d heard, but probably most notably Justin Johnson, late of Manchester. Johnson becomes the first of the likely Sound Tigers with over 200 pro games (293, in fact 317 — forgot playoffs), with 103 107 of those in the AHL for the Monarchs. Here’s a nice Dan […] [Read More]
