Burning off a bunch of time off before camp starts…. not that it’ll be all that convenient once it begins. For the most part, camp is planned to be on the Island (at Syosset) start-to-finish, except for that swing up I-290 for the two exhibition games. We’ll try to pick it up when we can. (Plan not yet decided, partly because, yeah, burning that time off…)
The first full practice is Saturday. Other accumulated notes:
Jordie Johnston, a Bridgeport tryout last spring, is a Connecticut Whale tryout this fall.
Bill Cain says we’ve got a new beat writer in Glens Falls. Heather Galindo announced a few days ago that she’s replacing Third Intermission-mate Andrew Ferraro at the Chronicle on the Aeros. Haven’t heard about Binghamton.
New Canaan’s Max Pacioretty went to Switzerland on a lockout deal.
From USCHO, Kurt Kleinendorst to Alabama Huntsville.
Good stuff from Jesse Spector and Keith Primeau on his concussions. Primeau has been very open with his experiences, and I thank him for that. It was an article I read about him several years ago that let me realize my own experiences weren’t crazy. Always good to get a reminder.
