Six to eight weeks for Rakhshani

Rhett Rakhshani will miss six to eight weeks, Arthur Staple first reported, with what the team is calling a left-knee sprain. That takes him to mid-November at the short end.

Trent Hunter earned a contract with the Kings.

The ECHL’s training-camp rosters release apparently doesn’t include guys who’re in AHL camps, or the list of former Sound Tigers on that list would probably be longer. Nevertheless, for now (with Utah TBA): Alaska — Wes Goldie. Chicago — Matt Campanale, Pierre-Luc Faubert. Colorado — Jon Landry. Elmira — Mario Larocque, Jean Bourbeau. Gwinnet — Paul Flache. Kalamazoo — Riley Gill, Darryl Bootland, Justin Taylor. Las Vegas — Peter MacArthur. Reading: Rob Kwiet, Louis Liotti, Vladimir Nikiforov. South Carolina: Trent Campbell. Edit: And no sooner… first-day ECHL transactions have Shayne Neigum signing with Ontario (Calif.), and Matt Schepke and Corey Syvret added to Trenton’s camp roster.

Another year, another Rangers beat writer at the Daily News. Jesse Spector is off to the Sporting News.

And RIP, Sylvia Robinson.
