Season in Review POLL: Story of the Month, September 2011

August is historically the slowest month of the year for hockey news – so, we’re pretty sure you’re dying without your daily fix.

As usual, we’re here to help!

Over the next few weeks we’ll be taking a look back at the biggest and best stories from the 2011-2012 season. Now, we know there are some of you out there who’ve read every single article published on MayorsManor. Meanwhile, there were likely others who fell behind at times. Well, like summer reruns on TV, here’s your chance to catch up on the things you missed this year or relive them in all their glory.

We’re going to begin our season in review with a look at September 2011 – players were wrapping up their summers, the Kings were getting ready to host HockeyFest and prospects were strutting their stuff in Rookie Camp.
