NWHL schedule/Kevin comes back: Tuesday notes

The National Women’s Hockey League released its schedule, beginning with New York at Connecticut at Chelsea Piers in Stamford on Oct. 11.

Unfortunately U.S. star Amanda Kessel won’t play her senior year at Minnesota. Concussions. Darn it.

Neat note from Victor Fernandes: Kevin Putzig is leaving Erie to join the Islanders. Appears that Trumbull’s own — who’d been a longtime Bridgeport stickboy as a kid and assistant equipment manager recently before going out to join the Otters — will be on the NHL staff. Cool news.

Sean McIndoe does an NHL year in review in the form of the IMDB “goofs” page. Gets the snarky tone, too.

And RIP, Bill Arnsparger, Irv DeKoff, Theodore Bikel, Dave Somerville (thanks, Hank), Alex Rocco, E.L. Doctorow and George Coe.
