Radio Interview with Coach Morris
Monarchs Coach Mark Morris began his season long Monday morning interviews on the radio this morning. During the interview Morris indicated that he and Hextall spoke last night, the Kings will be sending five (5) players to Manchester today and he expects the names to be announced sometime today. He pretty much hinted that Simmonds is an exciting young player from the Kings that Monarchs fans "might" get a look at but whether he is going to be assigned to Manchester remains to be seen...
Morris also indicated that Reading remains an ECHL affiliate of the Monarchs and that players are likely to be sent there. With that news, it might be possible that Reading and Ontario each will be getting a goalie from the Kings organization...
Other than that, they're a young team, currently only one "veteran" (Marty Murray) in the lineup. Didn't want to speculate on the five guys that are coming or if a player or two more will be added to the Monarchs roster...
Spoke about the compete level being high in their late 3rd period loss yesterday. They played with a short bench. Jon Rheault played well, scored a goal and was going to the net all night. Very involved in the offense...
Paul Crosty saw more ice time at left wing than he has in a very long time and he had a good time with it. Got in a scrap and thrown out late in the 3rd...(To Reaper and Johnny U. it was against McLaren, I have no idea how he did.)
Glad to have all the tryout guys in town and in the lineup. They all played well...
That was about it...
