    I don't which thread this belongs.

    Is Kingston Frontenacs releasing Linus Nyman and Eemeli Rasanen to Finland's U18 WJC team.
    And is there any timeline or schedule when that decision is ready?.

    Is there a deadline to add players? I noticed the tournament has started but are you allowed to add players as the games go along?

    Teams can add more players if they have free spots.
    But all rosters has to finalized before U18 WJC quarterfinals so the deadline for player adds is somewhere next Monday-Tuesday range

    Just checked Finland's roster in official tournament website.
    And there was Nyman and Rasanen.

    Thanks for releasing Nyman and Rasanen Finland's U18 WJC team.
    Nyman was great tonight versus Switzerland 2 goals and assists and player of the game.

    So next year? I expect Nichol, Helvig and Murray as OAs, although Harding could be valuable as well if they want to deal Helvig. I think they need to get some more 19 year olds (particularly one on defense). Only ones now are Field and Cranford. I don't know if Davis returns.

    Robertson -- Nichol -- Nyman
    Dunkley -- Neumann -- Cranford
    Popov -- Burnie -- Pringle
    Larabie/Drewitt -- Morgan -- Field
    Larabie/Drewitt -- Davis?

    Paquette -- Rasanen
    Murray -- Brahaney
    Brand -- Gordon
    ??

    Helvig
    Peccia
    Dugas

    So without warning of any type the Frontenacs are having a school day game . Season ticket holders do not get a ticket for this game even though we paid for 34 games. But wait we get a buddy pass to used some other game.... I don't need a buddy pass I already have a ticket for the rest of the games.

    29 Nov vs Ott

    PURE B.S.

    What should we expect from Todd Gill ?? What style did he encourage when in Kingston? Would you take him back if he was available?

    When he was here he scared the crap out of me, I'm on record for saying that, and obviously I am just a fan. He's a no nonsense type of coach for sure.

    At this point in time no but I also think he got a raw deal when let go.

    Kingston was a mess when Gill arrived on the scene and I give him full marks for turning the franchise around,I think he got a raw deal too....He will get a lot out of the players and make them accountable on and off the ice,He has a pretty good track record of getting kids to develop...I think he is a puck possession type of coach that likes to create chances off the cycle,but he had so many small guys that were marginal OHL players it was hard to do in Kingston...I think he will be great in Owen Sound.

    Thanks Fronts fans. Todd was on the radio and noted that he has mellowed a bit over the years. In the interview with our GM he noted that Todd really stressed the importance of winning the faceoff and being in possession of the puck.

    It looks like I will be doing a project at Novelis hoping it coincides with the OHL season so I can see a game at the K Rock.

    Thanks for that valuable piece of information sometimes it's hard to piece together what a new coach is like when you only see that team a limited number of games all season. And his record seems to be decent in the east how that will relate to the change crossing conferences and coaching in the west will be shown in time for Gill.

    As diehard fans of Jr hockey most fans don't have to look very far to see which conference is in someway always a powerhouse (OHL league standings) can prove that on a consistent yearly basis although not to discredit the east for challenging the west and in some rare occasions prevailing

    Best of luck to the Frontenacs in 2017/18 season in the east

    So let's review the Fronts changes

    1) Assistant coach Supryka - gone

    Replaced by Kurtis Foster

    2) Coach Paul MacFarland gone

    Replaced by Jay Varady

    3) Gm Doug Gilmour - becomes President of Hockey Operations

    4) Darrin Keily moves up to GM ( to be honest I think he has been doing quite a bit of this last year)

    5) Head Scout Jeff Mckercher gone

    6) new way of doing 50/50

    7) a school game added this year (yes I have issues with this the way it was done)

    8) new STH vip cards which give some sweet discounts in the city, plus a early entrance to a a lounge area before the game doors open.

    Same with Eemeli Rasanen. Him and Paquette will be the anchors on the blueline this year for the Fronts.
