Two newcomers: Wednesday notes

The remade Sound Tigers lineup includes Joey Martin, as was made apparent yesterday, and Justin Mercier, a left winger who’d been with Iowa until just a couple of days ago.

They skated together today with Joey Diamond, keeping the other lines intact as they were this weekend. Scott Pellerin reiterated what he said yesterday about expecting to keep things going, line missing or not.

(Mercier had an interesting week. If the whole story doesn’t fit into tomorrow’s story for the paper, will relate it here instead. He’s also an honest-to-God AHL veteran: 264 NHL/AHL/DEL games played before this year.)

One week to the NHL deadline. Arthur Staple recaps where the Big Club stands.

Pekka Rinne will rehab with Milwaukee.

And “The Americans” returns tonight. Liked it a lot last year. If Alan Sepinwall says it’s even better this season, well then.
