Feel like trying to read the tea leaves? Here’s how the groups were broken up today, though if they knew whether one group or the other is playing Saturday up here, it wasn’t readily available (pairs not really paired with seven D):
F: Ho-Sang – Nelson – Chimera
Talked to Alan Quine and Scott Mayfield. One will run tomorrow. One may run Sunday, or if not, it may run elsewhere/-when.
Bridgeport announced its camp schedule — pretty much daily at 10 a.m. — with the new twist this year that sessions at Wonderland will explicitly be open to the public. Rumors of tryouts, but no names yet. They have a meeting Sunday (not open to the public, darn it) and will get on the ice Monday. Meanwhile, Hartford gets going Saturday and announced a roster that includes West Haven’s Mike Pereira.
The AHL Hall of Fame Class of 2017 includes Bryan Helmer (Matt Carkner’s brother-in-law), Doug Yingst, Rob Murray and Billy Dea.
And speaking of the River Rats (um), Albany will wear River Rats sweaters a couple of times this year, though unfortunately not against Bridgeport.
