One on, two out

Steve Oleksy indeed joined the team on a pro tryout. He’s apparently insurance for Benn Olson, who like Chris Langkow was out today. “We’ve got a couple of guys banged up, upper-body,” Brent Thompson said; he wasn’t sure if they might be out for the weekend. That left 12 forwards and seven defensemen to go with the three goalies.

They got skated hard at the end of practice. Welcome home, fellas.

Reminder that the chat will be Wednesday instead of today, still at 1:30. Off to work on said story right now.

Edit: They had the defenseman this morning, and it looks like they’ll have the forward tomorrow: Afternoon’s ECHL transactions have Alaska loaning Dan Kissel to Bridgeport. Second-year pro has yet to make his AHL debut.
