That day got long…
–Was hoping to meet Linus Soderstrom, but he wasn’t on the ice today; not wanting to push him as he recovers from his last-season-ending shoulder injury. Josh Ho-Sang and Parker Wotherspoon also weren’t out there today.
We still talked to a few other people today and should have a couple of other stories during the week.
–Whole Bridgeport coaching staff was there, Eric Boguniecki, Matt Carkner on the ice, John Vazzano upstairs; Bernie Cassell, Chris Terreri among those out there as well. (Trainer Dave Stickney was let go in the springtime; they’re working on a decision on a replacement.)
Elsewhere, Hershey hires Spencer Carbery.
And among those going to the Hall of Fame: sorta-local boy Marty St. Louis, and the legendary Willie O’Ree.
