The prodigal son Mark Flood returns.
Moose practice jerseys look a bit different this year.
Not Adidas. CCM branded.
I'm on vacation this week, forgot about this today. I'll try and check it out tomorrow.
And Jets practice at 11.
Winnipeg, MB – The Manitoba Moose Hockey Club announced today the team has released the following six players from their tryouts with the club:
Think that Hutchinson could be assigned to another AHL team? Like we take an AHL contract back that isn't a goaltender.
I like Jamie Phillips too much.
They can loan him to another AHL team if they work out a deal with that team. I think it's rather unlikely. Reports were Jets only signed Phillips after they missed on a college UFA (can't remember which, maybe O'Connor?), I don't think they see much in him. He is in last year of his ELC, was just average in AHL and ECHL last year. Likely does not earn a new deal next year.
UFA goalie was Nick Ellis from Providence who signed with Edmonton. One local scribe said on twitter today that Hutch is turning down interview requests.
Hot damn! A good old fashioned goalie controversy (pronounced con-TRO-ver-sy of course). Could True North be heading South? Inquiring minds want to know.
Moose preseason game tonight
Webster and DiGiacinto signed contracts with the Ice Men. With Comrie joining the team, Phinney has been assigned to the Ice Men as well.
Brody Sutter with 2G and Buddy Robinson with the other. 3-2 pre-season win.
At the AHL.com preseason doesn't exist apparently. How sad is that? At least publish the scores and how hard can it possibly be to have a scoring summary uploaded?
Right? I tweeted them asking for assists but no response yet. I'll post them if I get them.
The Moose put this on their site
"Access from your area has been temporarily limited for security reasons."
The Moose website has blocked the access from Finland (and probably other places). This is really starting to piss me off.
Here's the MooseTV youtube version of the highlights
Boy, did Iowa blow that one late. And just a terrible turnout. You would think the REA would be packed for a pre-season AHL game. Can't see Fargo ever getting an AHL team with that level of support.
