The Islanders announced their qualifying offers on today’s deadline, retaining the rights to Devon Toews, Kyle Burroughs and Ross Johnston from last year’s Bridgeport roster. Kyle Schempp will be an unrestricted free agent, as will Alan Quine, the Sound Tigers’ seventh leading scorer in team history, 51-86-137.
I haven’t seen more detail on the passing of Sergei Ogorodnikov, though his teams posted tributes, including Bridgeport.
To close a few tabs: Pittsburgh’s re-signings today included Kevin Czuczman, who settled into a key role with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Chris Elsberry on Charlie Capalbo, the former Fairfield high school goalie, who seems to be doing great in his fight against cancer.
And RIP, the great, the legendary, Dan Ingram. The master.
