“Something like 36?!”

Former Islanders assistant Jack Capuano was named the Sound Tigers’ associate coach this afternoon, and Amarillo (CeHL) coach Joe Ferras was named assistant coach. In a dumb but brilliant coincidence, all three coaches are 40.

As Andy figured out, partly on the first try and partly on the second, that ObNewHavenReference from Sunday: One of Marshall’s and Ferras’ teammates at Plattsburgh was Chris Panek.

Edit: Argh. Meant to point out that Bill McLaughlin has, as rumored, been replaced with a two-headed monster: Andy Hutchison is the new communications (PR) director, and former Danbury ‘caster Phil Giubileo is the new play-by-play man. Good guys.
