Another one bites the dust.
I woke up to the news this July 4 that HV71, of the Swedish Hockey League, has signed away WBS winger Riley Holzapfel. HV71 already has a photo of Holzapfel in their uniform although I’m not sold on it being a photoshop.
Suffice to say, it is going to be a completely different WBS team in the Fall.
Elsewhere, you can check out the annual AHL Free Agent Big Board, a massive undertaking that Jonathan Bombulie creates. This year, he was assisted by Michael Cignoli of The Saratogian who covers the Adirondack Phantoms. You can check out the Big Board here. It will be updated regularly.
Speaking of updating, my 2013 Offseason Moves List has been updated to reflect the Holzapfel transaction.
Happy Fourth of July. Big day tomorrow with the start of Free Agency. Check out the blog tomorrow. I’ll be live blogging all day.
