With Trevor Frischmon reportedly banged up (“day-to-day,” per Brent Thompson), missing his first game in a long while, left winger Blair Riley comes up from Chicago of the ECHL (former BST trainer Mike Schroeder’s team) on a PTO. Riley’s wearing No. 5, the lowest number worn by a Sound Tigers forward by a Sound Tiger in the regular season. (Two caveats to that: Mike Davies wore 3 in the 2010 playoffs, and Paul Flache was wearing 5 when he played some games at forward in 2005-06.)
Oh, yeah. And the Sound Tigers are wearing… that. It’s black and blue and kinda orange-and-grayish. (White numbers and names, though. Phil Giubileo caught that difference.)
Looks from the rushes as if de Haan is in and Olson is out. We’ll check for the officials. edit: indeed.
F: McNeely-Colliton (C)-Rakhshani
D: de Haan-Wishart
F: Grant-(Audy-Marchessault)-Zuccarello (A)
R: J.Hebert. L: Galvin, Wahl.
I’m short an ‘A’ for Hartford. Will add it if it exists. Brendan Bell did skate with the forwards in the rushes; we’ll see if that sticks in the game. Edit: Bell starting on D.
Micheal Haley was otherwise occupied today (but similarly dressed).
