A few last pieces of business to take care of before we get underway for real tomorrow night:
-For 24 hours starting Monday afternoon, most of Albany and New Jersey held their collective breath as Scott Wedgewood was placed on waivers. Despite a flurry of activity on Tuesday involving the waiver wire (including New Jersey picking up P.A. Parenteau), he managed to clear and was reassigned to Albany.
-Just as Wedgewood cleared, Seth Helgeson took a turn through the waiver wire and cleared on Wednesday afternoon. He was reassigned to Albany to make room for Kyle Quincey’s return from IR.
-Patch Alber and Mathieu Brodeur were both released from their PTOs Thursday. Both will return to Adirondack.
AHL teams have until midnight tonight to submit their Opening Day rosters to the league. As of press time, none have been posted.
Now…how will I be covering things this season? Here’s what to expect starting tomorrow:
First of all…I’m going back to daily previews! I’ll be returning to the three hours beforehand schedule. Plan is for opponent stats, notes, maybe some pertinent links.
Weekly recaps will still be around, either on Sunday or Monday morning depending on the schedule.
I also plan on getting back into game photos (admittedly I slacked on that last season), and all photos will be over on my Flickr page. I’ll post links on social media as often as needed.
