[EHM 2018-10-08] Morale Shinny

Tier 3

The Brampton Beast are ranked 20th out of 27 in the Season Preview with Justin Baker MVP and Jerry Kuhn as the key arrival.

A contract is offered to Ryan Kyle. Three more exhibition games until the season starts with a game of shinny after that.

Tier 2

The IceCaps have shinny with the Habs today and just two more exhibition games before the season starts.

"So Mikko, we had high hopes and believe that you are an excellent hockey player and person. After an exciting camp and with the new season about to begin it appears our initial thoughts are not working out. Depending on your wishes, we can mutually disolve the contract, put you on waivers, or pay out a release. It's completely up to you."

Mikko Koivu was put on waivers.

Tyler Bozak came as a try-out player for a week.

    Domi(8)-Lehkonen(8)-Dadanov(7)
    Bozak(7)-Rychel(7)-Byron(7)
    Thornton(8)-Dawes(8)-Gallagher(9)
    Pezzetta(8)-Tatar(8)-Reaves(8)

    Alzner(8)-Green(7)

    IR-Shipachyov DtD
    HS-Deslauriers-Ritchie-Jokinen-Hischier-Koivu-Baun

Baun and Jokinen are try-outs so they don't count against the player cap. There is also no extra defenseman being carried, so we have three forwards.

Trade
Defensive LD-man Simon Bourque was traded to Calgary for LD Brett Kulak who arrived lacking game fitness and was sent to the farm.

This may be Koivu's last game to prove himself.

Exhibition Nine Devils 4 @ Habs 7

    Hischier(10)-Domi(10)-Dadanov(10)

    Alzner(7)-Green(8)
    Ouellet(6)-Honka(6)
    Zenko(6)
    Price(-)

Green just edged out Weber for the most ice-time for defense and Rychel took it for offense. Ouellett, Ritchie and Tatar had the least.

Winter/Relaxing Soft Drink: Diet Caffeine Free Great Value Cola (was Diet Mugs Root Beer but it's unavailable here now)
Refreshing Summer Soft Drink: Diet Tonic Water (was Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale, which is still awesome)

[EHM 2018-10-03b] Exhibition Eight - Kings 2 @ Habs 1

RFA Ouellet accepted a four year contract from the Habs worth an average 1.95M. This will take some pressure off DeSimone although it will also limit DeSimone's chances of making the pro club.

AHL/ECHL Exhibition & TC

The Beast whomped the Swamp Rabbits 6-3 with Flanagan leaving the ice with an injury and Brodeur, Brine, Vermeersch and Chouinard excelling.

The Beast training camp was a whirlwind.

Off the bat, Etiene Brodeur and Luke Ripley impressed in the early drills while Ryan Kyle and Tim Cavar looked slack, needing improvement.

[EHM 2018-10-02] Exhibition 6-7 and Farms

Exhibition 6 Blackhawks @ Canadiens

There has been a lot of discussion about the next few games. There are players that will need to be traded or let go or possibly put through waivers.

Unfortunately, despite Michael McCarron and Zach Hyman playing very well, it's likely they'll be sent to the farm. It's either that or get rid of Reaves and Drouin, neither of whom are likely to have any benefit on the farm.
