It’s everywhere: April 22 notes

(Did I say I was gonna check in once in a while? Well, it’s been a while. And I barely know who I am anymore.)

In German: Yannick Rathgeb and Federica Boschung had COVID-19 back home in Switzerland, and Boschung got the worst of it. Thankfully she’s doing better.

Brighter news: Congrats to the Bourne and Hill families. Older kids of Sound Tigers are getting bantam drafted. And double congrats to Jeff Tambellini.

The final Central Scouting rankings came out since last we met, and East Haven’s Nick Capone has come out of relative nowhere to rank 126th among North American skaters. (When’s the draft? TBA. Along with everything else.) If there’s a next year at UConn, Capone’s captain will be Ridgefield’s Adam Karashik.


Thoughts to Nova Scotia.

And RIP, Tom Webster, Pat Stapleton, Anthony Causi, Jack Bryant, Timothy Brown, Bobby Mitchell, Thomas Miller, John Prine, Earl Graves Sr., Hal Willner, Linda Tripp, Mort Drucker, Glenn Beckert, Willie Davis, Damaso Garcia, Jim Frey, Hank Steinbrenner, Danny Goldman, Tarvaris Jackson, Howard Finkel, Sec.
