More moving and shaking rumored in the AHL, as we get in the thick of Silly Season. Jeff Malcolm is doing his best to prove he belongs in Hartford once King Henrik returns to his Broadway throne. Though a man of few words, Winston Day Chief is commanding respect in the Rapid City locker room, while Jayson Megna is making a name for himself in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Meanwhile, in Toronto-- patience is the name of the game for the Marlies. All that, plus news, notes, and We Hardly Knew Ye.
This edition of the Farm Report has Scotty talking about some of the moves made at the ECHL trade deadline, the moves made by some AHL franchises, and what the move to California could really mean for the AHL and the NHL parent teams. Rod Aldoff is none too pleased with his two-time SPHL champion Ice Flyers, while the Quad City Mallards are flying together despite call-ups and injuries. All that, plus some news and notes, as well as We Hardly Knew Ye.
A crazy end to the week has Scotty talking about the possible AHL moves between Hamilton, St. John's, and Winnipeg (not to mention Bridgeport) that will shake up the already shook AHL alignment. Happier news from Hamilton, as Shane Bakker is a great feel-good story for the Bulldogs and psych students everywhere. Jason Shaya is a name that you may only know from the broadcast booth, but he has quite the on-ice resume as well. Monthly awards happened, plus weekly awards, new leases, new owners, and of course We Hardly Knew Ye
In this week's Farm Report, Scotty looks at how Dany Heatley has been able to transition from the NHL spotlight to the AHL bus trips. The Indy Fuel have been making noise in the standings, but how about at the box office?? Tyler Brown used this summer to readjust himself and his game, while RG Flath is using the move to the ECHL as a learning experience in his leadership role. All that, plus News and Notes and We Hardly Knew Ye
The Farm Report is back after a week off, but still a little worn out. Worn out is something the Hershey Bears aren't because they're on a huge run to start 2015 and it's all thanks to Troy Mann. Toledo has welcomed back hockey with open arms and the team is doing what they can to return the favor to the community. Parker Milner is trying to find a community to settle down, while Tom Kuhnhackl has settled down into a new role in the Penguins organization. All that, plus News and Notes and We Hardly Knew Ye.
