Getting back to work: Weekend notes

From a different angle, same sentiment. Tip of cap, too, to Bobby Abreu, professional hitter, and Paul Konerko as well.

Two from the recent ECHL transactions: Marc Cantin to Utah; Matt Mangene to the Florida Everblades. Meanwhile, Parker Milner will try out with Providence, Mark Divver reports. (As usual, Milner’s Twitter account had a tip.) And from an email, appears Chris Bruton will be in camp with Grand Rapids on a tryout, along with former Bridgeport teammates Josh Holmstrom and Justin Mercier and Islanders draft pick Shane Sims.

The last week of Islanders exhibitions leads up to Friday’s game in Bridgeport. We’re hoping to get to the Island at least one day this week and see what things look like. Busy with an assortment of other things around that, but we’ll keep up as we can.
