2016-17 General IceCaps/Beast Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

dlbalr    645

With the minor league seasons set to get underway, it's time to get the general discussion thread going.  Use this thread for any small news/roster notes for both St. John's (AHL) and Brampton (ECHL).

 

A couple of notes regarding the IceCaps:

 

- Max Friberg has been named team captain, replacing Gabriel Dumont.  Mark Barberio and Jacob de la Rose are the alternates.

- The team has signed G Bryan Pitton to a PTO to back up Zach Fucale while Lindgren is up with Montreal.

Under the category of head scratching moves, St. John's has signed Yann Danis to a one year contract (not a PTO).  http://www.stjohnsicecaps.com/article/icecaps-sign-goalie-yann-danis-to-ahl-contract/

 

That would imply that someone will be going to Brampton once Lindgren gets re-assigned (and would somewhat quash the notion of potentially claiming back Condon in a few weeks).

I don't hate the idea of a vet goalie in St John's with Lindgren

Maybe Bergevin doesn't want to get any closer to the 50 contract limit?

They must want Lindgren and Fucale to get as many games as possible. Didn't see a problem with them splitting games down the middle but I guess the team is adamant for Fucale to play in the ECHL.

I guess they assumed condon would get to St. John's.  Since that didn't happen, this move was made.

Fucale has to be odd man out. I have never been impressed with his consistency. Too many stinkers. Danis will not hurt us.

I'm not saying I like the fact McCarron head butted someone, but I do like the fact that he's a feisty dude.

Agree, headbutt not recommended nor endorsed, but sounded like he was taking a few punches and I assume was tied up and did what he had to do.

With Price off IR, Lindgren has been sent back to St. John's.  The IceCaps also released Bryan Pitton from his PTO.

Not a big fan of ECHl or Ahl new websites- we were able to get gamesheets and at least have an idea what is going on

You can still get gamesheets on the AHL site at least (I haven't looked at the ECHL's yet).  If the scoreboard across the top doesn't load - and that's hit or miss - open up the daily scores page.  On the bottom right of each score are three letters in a circle, S, R, and T.  S is the scoresheet.

Hudon      5g in 6 games

Anrighetto 6pts in 4gms

Scherbak 3pts in 6gms

McCarron 3pts in 4gms

Lindgren playing very well, only 2gms so far but still 1.50 .961%

 

Icecaps now are 2-3-1

Can Hudon get called up and not need waivers to be sent back down, but Andrighetto would need to clear if called up temporarily? I wonder if some GMs almost bit on Sven when he was on waivers and now thinking they missed out?

Andrighetto can be called up, and as long as he isn't on the roster for 30 days can be sent back down without waivers

 

This is cumulative... so if he's called up for 14 days, sent down, called back up for 17 days, he'd need waivers to go down the second time.

Thanks Ben.

Hudon not only has scored 5g, he has had numerous (couple at least) breakaways but didn't score on.

Fucale has been sent to Brampton.  It's nice to see common sense prevail after Lefebvre said last week that they were planning to keep three goalies up.

No de la Rose this weekend after he fractured a finger while blocking a shot on Sunday in Hartford.

Carr has been sent to St. John's, I assume just for the weekend to get into some games.  No corresponding recall has been announced (but that might change after 5 PM EST today).

St. John's has signed defenceman Julien Brouillette to a PTO to take Hanley's spot on the roster.  He played in the SHL last season and spent time with St. John's back in 2014-15 when it was Winnipeg's affiliate.
