Hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend. Though I doubt Tuesday was as good for you as it was the people of Manitoba.
The Jets are back with the NHL’s announcement of the Thrashers’ move to Winnipeg Tuesday morning. And yes, some in Atlants do care. Also, former Tigers Bill and Lee Sweatt will have a new home next season whether they get called up by the Canucks or not.
Here’s my favorite tweet so far about this: GlobeKPDKevin Paul Dupont “Saskatoon. How long must we wait?”
I think we know the answer.
Denver announced its alternate captains which includes a fifth-year senior, Omaha’s Dustin Jackson, who had said his goodbyes at the annual awards banquet and apparently changed his mind. He missed the 2009-10 season with a broken leg and the 2010-11 alternate captain missed 12 games this past campaign with mono. The others are Drew Shore, John Lee and Paul Phillips. The captain will be chosen this fall from among those four candidates.
In what I mistakenly had assumed was a done deal, former Tiger Guy Gadowsky took over the Penn State club hockey team. It certainly makes sense and gives the current players a year-long tryout for the varsity program so Gadowsky and his staff can figure out where those guys fit in their system.
