Yesterday we posted an article highlighting six players coming to Los Angeles to serve as this year’s Black Aces (a practice squad that NHL teams often use during the post-season). That initial list was comprised of forwards Colin Fraser and Linden Vey, defensemen Andrew Bodnarchuk, Andrew Campbell, and Brayden McNabb, along with goalie J.F. Berube. […]
When the AHL playoff schedule was announced, many were baffled as to why the top team in the Eastern Conference, the Manchester Monarchs, were slated to only have two games at home in the opening round.
