  • Ryan Strome's stay in Bridgeport was made easier by his teammates who reached out to him. Suck on that, Nino. [Newsday]

  • Today in Travis Hamonic: Trading Tyler Myers makes sense for the Jets because he is appreciably worse than Hamonic. For the Islanders: enh, who cares? Includes video of other options. [Sportsnet]
  • Joe Whitney's hat trick helped the Sound Tigers beat Hartford. Check out those retro (early 1990's) uniforms. [CT Post | Soundin' Off]
  • Make it 11 wins in a row for the Missouri Mavericks. Carter Verhaege had quite a game against Indy.
  • Parker Wotherspoon scored the game-winner for Tri-City in their victory over Spokane. [Tri-City Herald]
