Here's a quick update on the news from this weekend.
- The Jr. Blades won both of their games against the Tampa Bolts this weekend. There should also be a fight video going up at the Jr. Blades YouTube channel at some point.
- Woody has a great story up on how training camp has been going so far. The opening day is here, and today's report is here.
- In case you didn't click that second link, Francis Lemieux and Shea Guthrie got into a fight. This is funny when you consider they rode back from Norfolk together. I guess you can't blame Lemieux though, Guthrie looks like the kind of person who sings (off-key) in the car.
- In case you missed my tweets over the weekend- McColm, Paquet, Guthrie, Raymond, Imbeault, Sarazin, Hendrikx, and Egener were all released from their try-outs and are either back in town or expected to arrive in the next few days.
- The Charlotte Checkers have assigned four players to us (click their names for their stats)- Matt Beca, Mike McKenzie (You can find him on Twitter here), Matthew Pistilli, and Elgin Reid.
- The Admirals have reassigned Mitch Fadden.
- That brings the roster to 21 players, plus the 6 players on try-out (Richie Smith was cut yesterday) brings the grand total to 27 players. The ECHL only allows 20 players (they don't count players on the injured reserved list). There still may be some more players arriving from our affiliates (one should be a goalie coming from Norfolk). Cuts will be announced Saturday.
- Most importantly... the Alumni Game is tomorrow!
