New guy!

Matt Donovan joined the optional practice in progress, putting all 10 ATO players on the ice at the same time. A few familiar faces here for him, which he figures will help.

Only three non-ATOs on the ice: Romano, DiBenedetto and Marcinko. DiBenedetto and Marcinko both said they’re feeling better; no guarantee on them for the weekend yet, though.

Stephane Da Costa signed with Ottawa.

Nothing shocking on the AHL all-star teams.

Edit: Onetime Sound Tiger Wes Goldie is a first-team ECHL all-star.
