Playing in Germany, apparently.

I forgot that guy existed until right now.

The last I found out he suffered a head injury, (concussion I believe), and part way through last season, I found nothing about where he was playing or if he was playing.

FWIW on Drazenovic. He'll be a good AHL scorer for you, and he didn't look out of place in two short call-up stints with the CBJ last year. He's been well-coached by Brad Larsen in Springfield.

AHL journeyman goalie in on a minor league deal. I wonder what this might mean for Zatkoff or Hartzell?

Hartzell will probably have to battle hard for the WBS back-up spot or be the full time starter in Wheeling, right?

That's most likely, I think. They might want another safety valve in case of a Zatkoff playoff implosion, too.

Competition in training camp, and a 3rd minor league goalie so we can send one to Wheeling. Killeen is gone and who knows whether Montreal will send down a goalie again.

I'm surprised the article did not mention that Peter Mannino has local ties. Ten years ago he won the NAHL championship with the Pittsburgh Forge. Dylan Reese was also on that team, founded and managed by former Pens head coach Kevin Constantine.

I knew than name sounded familiar. I used to go to a lot of Forge games.

The Pens will be Mannino's 12th team since turning pro. That's insane.

Lets be honest.. we all knew the Shero's mancrush on Chris Conner would resurface sooner than later. It was only a matter of time. He can't contain himself when it comes to undersized grinders.

Brian Gibbons re-signed. One year, two-way, $550,000 NHL salary. Source.

Good for him. He's a very nice player for the Baby Pens.

I just hope there's a college FA named Benny Marmoset we can set our sights on in the near future.

Tom Grace is leaving WBS to zam his way into the role of Manager of Team Services for the Panthers. Congratulations to him, but for WBS fans, today is a day of mourning. It is no longer on like Donkey Kong.

This is a sad day. I really enjoyed listening to the highlights people would post

I'll always have my talking Tom Grace bottle opener. Now I'll have to pour some out every time I use it.

not a huge fan of his PBP but he seems like a decent guy, good luck to him.

Good heavens! I guess my dream of pairing Grace and Errey is dead.

I guess this means Mike O'Brien is taking over the PBP job full time now.

He's much less biased than Grace, but he doesn't seem to have a real handle on what calling a game actually entails, and his yelling is kind of obnoxious.

Hopefully practice makes perfect.
