Tonight’s lineup against Hartford in Worcester looks a fair bit like yesterday’s practice:
F: 40 Matt Gaudreau-24 Travis St. Denis-25 Casey Bailey
32 Ross Johnston-18 John Stevens-11 Tanner Fritz
29 Connor Jones-16 Kyle Schempp-10 Ryan Bourque (A)
51 Yanick Turcotte-48 Jeff Kubiak-21 Ben Holmstrom (C)
D: 2 Seth Helgeson (A)-38 Sebastian Aho
27 Parker Wotherspoon-8 Kyle Burroughs
46 Patrick McNally-41 Mike Cornell
G: 33 Christopher Gibson
70 Kristers Gudlevskis
Brent Thompson said the other day he plans to have Gibson go the distance tonight.
(Programming: I’ll probably update this as the pregame post and tack on the Wolf Pack lineup tonight.)
Edit, 5:10: Arrived at the (very nice and brand-spankin’) Worcester Ice Center. Twoish hours to gametime. The Islanders called up Devon Toews earlier with one more preseason game to come.
Pregame reading (and listening) while we wait:
—Kenny Agostino and Ville Pokka cleared waivers.
–And RIP, Anne Jeffreys.
–Ben Holmstrom is in fact wearing the ‘C’ tonight.
F: 10 Cole Schneider (A)-39 Dan DeSalvo-88 Dan Catenacci
11 Matt Puempel-29 Vinni Lettieri-9 Joe Whitney (A)
7 Adam Tambellini-24 Boo Nieves-17 Scott Kosmachuk
21 Ryan Gropp-34 Gabriel Fontaine-44 Eric Selleck (A)
D: 27 Ryan Graves-4 Neal Pionk
51 Alexei Bereglazov-6-Brandon Crawley
74 Sean Day-3 John Gilmour
G: Brandon Halverson
30 Alexandar Georgiev
R: T.Koharski, G.Miller. L: T.Whittemore, Leavitt.
