It’s an Erie coincidence

Two things, one of which made the story, another of which didn’t…

1) Probably should have pointed it out in the story, and it just hit me that I didn’t: Next year. O’Marra, being just 18 and having played only three years of major junior, can’t play for Bridgeport next season (except, like now, after his junior team’s season ends). It’s the Islanders or the Otters (or, in case of an OHL trade, that new team) for him.
2) The Sound Tigers were planning to bring in T.J. Kemp from Reading (ECHL) to fill out the defense. He’s a Mercyhurst guy, but after Jody Robinson’s time. Played eight AHL games in this, his rookie year, for three different teams… He was plus-1 in three games with Peoria, then minus-5 in three with Iowa, then earlier this month went plus-1/minus-1 in two games with Milwaukee.
