Eagles give time off Steve Kelly with immediate effect
The eagles separated in the today's morning from stuermer Steve Kelly. The 29-jaehrige Canadian played since summer 2004 in the leotard of the eagles.
Eagle Headcoach Stéphane Richer communicated Kelly before today's training that he with him do not plan no more. Richer saw no more basis after several discussions with the Canadian to continue to work with the stuermer in the future.
The Kings qualified Kelly at the end of the 03-04 season which I think means they retained his NHL rights. He may not be of much help to the Kings in the NHL at this point, BUT, there is a need for a center in Manchester this season and likely next as well. I hope the Kings at least consider bringing him to Manchester if he's interested...
