On defensemen

Among my favorite Family Guy bits is in the (first) Star Wars episode, when the power comes back on and everyone cheers a sarcastic “heyyyyyyy!” ‘Cause it’s so true. Just did it.

Stockton has acquired from Fort Wayne the ECHL rights to Mathieu Gagnon, so he’d be able to go to the Thunder with the rest of the guys from here if he’s sent down. Meanwhile, a report from Germany has Ty Wishart a candidate to go to Germany. (Hockey365 punched that onto my twitter feed.)

Free backpack if you get there early when Bridgeport visits Hershey on Nov. 9. Go to the Dec. 21 game instead. Seriously, take a look.

And RIP, Julie Harris, Tony Russo and Dean Meminger.
