Friday notes

South Carolina (ECHL) signed Quinnipiac’s Zack Currie. Via Elite Prospects, Yale’s Colin Dueck to Idaho.

We’ll have a coach in Iowa Monday. Edit: Mark Emmert of the Des Moines Register reports it’ll be Kurt Kleinendorst, Calder Cup winner with Binghamton.

A wild (and three-year-old, but he RT’d it into my timeline this week) story from Canadian legend Roy MacGregor on Canadian legend Tom Thomson.

Tip of cap to Michael Cignoli (no longer @MCSaratogian), who’s going back to Wilkes-Barre after a solid year on the Phantoms.

And a big tip of cap to Jamie Palatini, who’s departing the Sound Tigers after three years putting up with me 24 hours a day as PR and community-relations man. We’ll miss him.
