Around the Farm: Connor Allen nets first pro goal as Pack stays unbeaten

Connor Allen, the last defenseman cut from the roster during preseason, notched his first professional goal last night in Hartford’s 3-2 win over Portland. Danny Kristo also scored in the contest, with his goal holding up as the game winner. The scoring lines from all prospects from the AHL, CHL, NCAA, and international play are below. International Calle Andersson (Malmo, HockeyAllsvenskan...

Kristo among those sent to Hartford in today’s cuts

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have cut the following players, and sent them to the AHL’s Hartford Wolfpack: Goalies: Cam Talbot Defensemen: Tommy Hughes, Aaron Johnson, Dylan McIlrath, Danny Syvret Forwards: Micheal Haley, Michael Kantor, Andrew Yogan, Danny Kristo While most of these were predictable (I got 8 of 9 correct), Kristo being sent to the AHL is a bit of a surprise....

Preseason Game 4: Shaking off rust in Edmonton

(Photo: LoHud) The Rangers are in Edmonton tonight to take on the Oilers in their second of back-to-back games, and second of a four-in-five stretch to close out the preseason. The lines for tonight’s game have generated some discussion, particularly when you look at the forward lines. This is a team that needs to shake off the rust, but needs to give their highly touted prospects...

Musings: Traverse City is here – hockey is back.

A goaltender actually worth his salary: The King Corey Crawford got $6m per year long term? I think it’s clear at this stage that Henrik Lundqvist is going to get a serious pay rise. Some goaltenders are products of great teams (Crawford, a good but not great goalie may be exhibit A here) and some are great goaltenders who make teams better – a la Lundqvist. Unless he signs a...

Wish I could tell you that there would be some live coverage of the event but that sadly will not be the case. ...

A headscratcher

Troy Donnay (OHL Images) Wednesday saw the New York Rangers sign defenseman Troy Donnay of the Erie Otters to a NHL entry level contract. Donnay who attended the recent Ranger prospect camp at the beginning of July is 6'7 185 and will be scheduled to play his 4 year in the OHL during the 2013-2014 hockey season. I have to admit that I am wondering what the Rangers saw in...

And then there was none

Tommy Hughes (#14) (Saskatoon Blades) This is why we watch ice hockey because no matter what level we are watching, the last minute of any game can come down to a matter of inches as the Portland Winterhawks held off the London Knights 2-1 to advance to Sunday's final of the 2013 Memorial Cup. It wasn't the textbook classic game but it was a fight and forgive the corny cliche...

Back to backs break Blades

Tommy Hughes (OHL Images) In the end the Saskatoon Blades that their critics said weren't deserving of hosting the 2013 Memorial Cup gave fuel to those same critics by bowing out of the Memorial Cup after a 6-1 loss to Tommy Hughes and the London Knights in the tiebreaker game. Pick a word or cliche and it will fit as the curse of back to back games kept it's streak intact...

London got run over by the Mooseheads

If there ever was a need for a mercy rule in hockey then boy did the London Knights need to be put out of their misery. The Halifax Mooseheads just beat on the London Knights 9-2 at the Memorial Cup on Tuesday night earning at the very least a spot in the semifinals. This one was over very quickly as Halifax scored 5 first period goals on just 11 shots as the QMJHL champions...

Staying Alive (barely) Day 4

London Knights 2103 OHL Champions (OHL Images) It almost seems just totally unfair that the London Knights defeated the Barrie Colts 3-2 in game 7 of the OHL Finals to win the OHL Championship for the 2nd straight year. The Knights scored the game winner at 19:59 of the 3rd period on a goal that needed video review before the video replay officials said it was a good goal. There...

The London Knights scored at 1:30 of the first overtime to give the Knights a 5-4 win and send the game back to London Monday for a game 7. That was...

Three prospects playing, three prospects on the losing end of the score and now all three's team's are on the wrong side of a 3-1 series lead. The Portland Winterhawks were called the "Evil Empire...

Colts stampede knights

Mitchell Theoret (OHL Images) Corny headlines day 2 but as the OHL Finals shifted to the home of the Barrie Colts for game 3, the advantages of home ice played a key role in helping Barrie earn a 6-3 win over the London Knights and a 2-1 series lead. Mitchell Theoret (NYI 2011 7th) of the Barrie Colts got the nod to start the game as did Tommy Hughes (NYR 2013 UFA) but while...

Seriously it was just like what Portland did to Edmonton on Saturday night as the Knights just flat out dominated the Colts. ...

A Ranger/Islander playoff series (sort of)

Mitchell Theoret (OHL Images) It seems really ironic that the only New York Islander prospect still playing in the Canadian juniors is 2011 7th round draft pick Mitchell Theoret of the Barrie Colts. But yet Theoret who the Islanders haven't decided whether or not they are going to sign (they have until the end of May) finds himself in the OHL finals after his Barrie Colts defeated...
