The bullet points on Bridgeport’s walking (and limping, and getting around on crutches) wounded:
–Kyle Burroughs is “week to week,” Brent Thompson said, which honestly is better than I thought it was when they half-carried him off the ice Sunday. It looks long-term, but they’ll see how rehab goes and keep evaluating him.
–Marc-Andre Cliche has arrived, but he’s being evaluated by team doctors, Thompson said. It sounded like more than a physical. Cliche had missed a couple of games before the trade.
–Kane Lafranchise practiced, as did Loic Leduc in red no-contact. Sounds like Lafranchise is good to go, while Leduc is day-to-day depending on pain.
–Colin Markison wore red today; Thompson said he’s fine.
–Scott Mayfield came on and skated late. Talked to him a little and will write a little for tomorrow’s paper. (He artfully said something but nothing about the injury. Pro. Darn it.)
Lines were as they were before Sunday’s late swap: Mike Halmo back with Carter Verhaeghe and Bracken Kearns.
Sacred Heart’s Justin Danforth was named second-team all-Atlantic Hockey.
I don’t mean to make light (too much), but meldonium sounds like the 125th element or something. It fits nicely in the Tom Lehrer song.
And RIP, legendary George Martin.
