Leggio day-to-day/Andrey’s gone: Wednesday notes

Bridgeport practiced this morning a man short on defense — Andrey Pedan’s got a game tonight for Utica — and, for a while, with an extra goalie. But David Leggio departed early. “It depends how his body responds,” Brent Thompson said. “Right now, the big thing for me is I don’t know how he’s going to respond. We’ll see. He’s day-to-day.” Kent Simpson otherwise held down the spot opposite Kevin Poulin.

First practice in the post-Pedan era. “With the amount of games he’s played for us, and with the depth of our defense, I believe this is the best thing for Andrey individually,” Thompson said. “It is possible, still, an outside chance with new scenery, new life, you never know where it can take him. … It’s an opportunity for him to get another chance, and it’s a great job by the Islanders getting a third-round pick.”

Meanwhile, as foretold from Sweden on the weekend, Ty Wishart has indeed gone to Mora to join his ol’ teammate. Fun with Google Translate: “(Wishart) will bring peace in our game” –J.Colliton. Almost biblical.

The storm pushed up Bunnell-Stratford to last night. Fun game. Credit to the Bunnell band for a medley of songs by The Who. Well done. Though I’d have loved a deep track or two. “The Good’s Gone.” “Much Too Much.” (Discovered, almost 50 years later, their first two albums over the summer. Some gold in there.)

The storm has also postponed Worcester-Portland tonight in Maine. Things were OK out there when I was out in the morning, but it’d apparently changed back and forth from snow to sleet/rain at least once on the hill between Exits 12 and 13 in Shelton. Be safe.

And RIP, Gilles Tremblay.
