Hurting and recovering/RIP, George Martin: Wednesday notes

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.

West Haven’s Mike Pereira signed another PTO with Utica. His Reading Royals picked up Mike Pelech, one of Adam’s older brothers. The ECHL trade deadline is Thursday at 3.

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.
