a-Former Norfolk Admirals, new San Diego Gulls. p-Former Portland Pirates; AZ affiliation moves to Springfield. To keep this manageable, other affiliation-swap coaches are assumed to move with the affiliation until we hear otherwise.

From yesterday: A nice Amalie Benjamin piece on the NHL’s Damian Echevarrieta.

Soundin’ Off Book Club: This cartoon from a couple of weeks ago is so accurate. Very enjoyable read.

And one more reminder (well, maybe another) about The Big Assist Wednesday night at Terry Conners Rink in Stamford. The latest rosters don’t include Justin DiBenedetto (darn) but do include Jon Landry, Sean Backman and Colin Markison, plus some dudes like Atkinson, Moulson, Quick, Shannon, Sifers, Arcobello, Kreider.
