Newtown to National team: Monday notes

“Where’s my spy camera?” Patience.

Newtown’s Melissa Samoskevich was chosen for the U-22 select national team that’ll face Canada later this month.

Former future Sound Tigers defenseman Robbie Russo signed with Detroit less than 24 hours after falling off the Islanders’ reserve list.

Michael Pelech, Adam’s brother, signed with Norfolk (ECHL). I may have to stick that tag there every single time this year to keep it straight in my mind. (Manchester, too.)

Ex-Springfield Falcon Daniel Briere calls it a day.

Fifty years after the Beatles at Shea? Impossible. (Had never heard that in its entirety. Darn.)

And RIP, Bob Fillion and Julian Bond.

Michael Fornabaio
