Conservation of Holmstroms: Monday notes

The Islanders announced they’ve signed Simon Holmstrom, their first-rounder, to his ELC. We’ll see where he winds up, but that can officially be here now.

Meanwhile, San Diego has its coach, and he’s no stranger to the Anaheim organization:

TEAM Old New
HFD Keith McCambridge (4/16)  — 
CLE John Madden (5/29)  Mike Eaves (6/18) 
SD Dallas Eakins (ANA, 6/17)  Kevin Dineen (7/15) 
CHA Mike Vellucci (6/28)  Ryan Warsofsky (7/10) 
WBS Clark Donatelli (6/28)  Mike Vellucci (6/28) 

That leaves just Hartford, the first vacancy, without a coach at the moment.

Dave Borges on a couple of Connecticut kids playing minor-league ball together, and one of them is Dean Lockery, nephew of Bridgeport penalty timekeeper Frank Camera.

And RIP, Pernell Whitaker, Bob Guarente, Walt Michaels and Denise Nickerson.
