No, You Haven’t Missed Anything

It’s the middle of summer. The Top 100 AHL Free Agent Big Board and Beyond is pretty well picked over with players signing with teams. There is nothing out there in the hockey world that is worth noting. You haven’t missed anything.

Barry Goers was the Friday re-signing by the Penguins back on July 8. Since then, nothing but tumbleweeds.

Even the AHL is running retread news on its Twitter feed this morning….

Possible news includes a new assistant coach on Coal Street….

Down 81, ex-Penguin Reid Cashman was named assistant coach of the Hershey Bears filling the role of Bryan Helmer who took the position of VP of Hockey Operations for the departing Doug Yingst.

That’s about it. We are probably about five weeks away from an AHL schedule. If / when Coal Street makes an announcement on a new assistant coach, I’ll have a blog here. But otherwise, go outside and enjoy the warm weather.

    Seeing as how we lost a team in our division, I guess we might see more of Bingo this season — or maybe Albany and Utica.

    Do you think WBS could use a couple more Forwards?

      I think it depends on what / who Pittsburgh can sign. They may look for themselves, if not, they can sign for WBS. WBS could sign a guy to AHL deal too. Will they? I don’t know.
