  1. just saw on ECHL transactions that former Hab prospects Zach Fucale and Mike McNiven have been demoted by their AHL clubs to ECHL affiliates, both in Florida. Etienne Marcoux who showed signs of brilliance with ECHL Brampton Beast (Ottawa affiliate) last season is playing with LNAH Thedford Mines
  2. still think it should have been PK in the penalty box for a tripping penalty. Maybe Danault should not have talked to the officials during the break leading up to o/t. Soft game overall and the bizarre officiating of calling nothing for most of the game and then everything is puzzling. I agree the waved off goal was pushed in with his thigh but my lord, where was the tripping call on Subban that created the whole scenario.?
  3. Chris Leveille of the Brampton Beast has joined the CBR Brave of the Australian International Hockey League---
  4. Brampton's Erik Bradford has signed a PTO with the AHL Toronto Marlies. Brampton D Jeff King (on loan from AHL Toronto) recalled by the Marlies
  5. Brampton finished the season with two wins and a loss on the weekend. Beat Wheeling on Friday at home, beat Kalamazoo in the Zoo on Saturday ( and knocked the Wings out of the playoffs) and lost to mighty Adirondack 6-2 at home on Sunday with many vets out (for example Blain, Donaghey, Fournier, Petgrave and Brandon MacLean injured (knee). College signing Bailey Webster looked good and has size for a D man-6'4" and 215 lbs. Piancentini is small for a D at 5'8" and 165 lbs. Vincent Dunn scored both goals on Sunday and it just looked like they had a case of bus legs after getting in from Kalamazoo at 5am with a 2pm gametime. They will miss Dunn as he was traded by Ottawa to Pittsburgh as part of a package at the NHL trade deadline but Pittsburgh chose to leave him in Brampton. He was joking with quite a few of the Wheeling players Friday as I suppose he might end up playing with them next season. It was not confirmed but I think it might have been Alex Foster's last game. Foster is a former Toronto Marlie Captain, played three games for the Leafs, and was the first player out for warm ups (before the goalie) and did a lap of his end by himself. His dad Dwight is a former NHL player and his uncle is NHL vet Wes Jarvis. Chris Dreidger was in goal all three games on the weekend. PS-the inductees for the Brampton Sports Hall of Fame were introduced on Sunday and one of the four was NHL defenseman Mike Weaver who finished his career with Montreal in 2014-15.
  6. I'm just hoping next year in Brampton, they are able to afford an assistant coach to help Colin Chaulk. Can't believe no assistant this year except for a while when injured players like Blain and Henry acted as assistants. Would be nice to see a Montreal affiliate actually have some Montreal prospects. I believe there has been more Ottawa prospects assigned (off and on-especially in the case of goalies) making me wonder if affiliations might change?????
  7. Beast lost 3-2 in Worcester last night. Playing there again tonight. Have signed D man Paul Piacintini from Merceyhurst College in Erie Pa
  8. been in Florida for a week therefore no recent posts---Beast played two good games this weekend. Beat Toledo in Toledo last night 3-2 with Belleville goalie Dreidger in goal. Today vs the Indy Fuel, blew a 4-2 lead early in the third but tied very late in the third and won in o/t 6-5 with a really nice goal by Erik Bradford. Belleville goalie Hogberg in net. Special ceremony for Capt Brandon Marino who last week became the team's all time goal scoring leader. Beast won't make the playoffs but might as well try and go out with a bang. Only two more home games April 6&8
  9. Beast lost Sunday 3-2 to a very talented Cincy Cyclone team. Rick Vaive's son Justin is on the team-big guy-very whiney. There is also a Beukeboom on the roster and a few vets like Shawn O'Donnell and Jesse Shulz. Brampton had a 2-1 lead going into the third-ran into some cheezy penalties and lost D leader Jordan Henry half way through the third when he questioned the referee's ancestry and got a game MC. Brampton outshot Cincy but not enough big guys in front running interference. They played quite well for most of the game Friday getting a 4-3 win over Robbie Ftorek's Norfolk Admirals. Brampton has missed D man Mike Folkes for quite a few games due to injury. In goal, Chris Dreidger was his steady self. Referee Andrea Barone was very marginal on his calls
  10. -ECHL transactions-Dagostini returned to Brampton from loan to Laval. D Matt Petgrave returned to Brampton from Laval. G Marcus Hogberg reassigned to Brampton from AHL Belleville
  11. lost Friday in K'zoo 7-4 (last goal e/n). Were in the game until Spence got hurt. Sunday Beast lost 2-1 in a shootout to top team Toledo Walleye. Dreidger was in goal for the Beast. They badly outshot Toledo in the first two but just don't seem to have the big guys in front that are needed. I haven't check transactions to see who has been moved today........................ Addendum:, D Tyson Wilson on his way back from Laval to Brampton
  12. OH jeeze-Spence just left the game injured in Kalamazoo. TJ Sherwood, Jr goalie is there as the backup, not Dagostini as listed on the game notes.
  13. can someone show Bob Cole what difference btwn. hitting the side of the net is, and what hitting the post is
  14. D Tyson Wilson to Laval RW Ian Harris added to Brampton (off reserve?) F Jackson Leef loaned to Laval D Matt Petgrave loaned to Belleville AHL in Kalamazoo tonight, Daniel Spence in goal for the Beast; Dagostini is the back up. News: goalie TJ Sherwood signed to an SPC (Jr C goalie in the Barrie area)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the heck is going on???
  15. Brampton traded goalie Will King to Worcester today
  16. to further confuse matters, the Beast announced that Belleville goalie Chris Dreidger has been re assigned to the Beast. Hogberg sent back to Belleville. RW Ian Harris released
  17. Beast win tonight 4-1 (3 Stars-Hogberg (30 saves), Dunn, Leveille). Next games vs Kalamazoo Friday ( at home), at Kalamazoo Saturday and vs Toledo in Brampton Sunday......
  18. and Marcus Hogberg (AHL Belleville) in goal for Brampton tonight with Spence as the back up
  19. D Matt Petgrave returned to Brampton from Laval today
  20. ECHL transactions say Corrin to Laval from Brampton (thought he was already there). Vasquez released.
  21. lost 4-3 in o/t in Jacksonville this afternoon with Spence in goal. Had the lead and lost it with less than a minute to go in regulation. One point in three games---jeeze
  22. appears Dunn has been loaned back to Brampton by his new owners if the ECHL transactions are correct. And is playing today for Brampton in Jacksonville-have a feeling he travelled with the team the last few days and may have never left even through his trade to Pittsburgh
  23. just found out also that Belleville AHL player Vincent Dunn (Ottawa Prospect) who has played quite a few games in Brampton has been traded to Pittsburg as part of a three team trade involving Ottawa, Vegas and Pittsburgh
  24. Beast seem to be mailing in the balance of the season. Lost Friday 1-0 in SC and 5-1 tonight in SC. Recent waver pick King played goal both nights. SPC signee Spence was the back up. Hard to find out what has happened to Dagostini since they publish no IR list. Now they are on the bus to Jacksonville Florida. Team only seemed to do well with a top goalie like Dreidger, Fucale or Hogberg. I don't think I have to worry about playoff tickets
  25. Brampton have signed F Will Vasquez to an SPC. Played for the Carolina Thunderbirds of the FHL. D Willie Corrin on his way from Brampton to Laval again
