Yann Danis was returned to Bridgeport.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Don't ask me folks, I just write the blog here.
DiPietro gets hurt again without extended practice along with Sillinger and Gervais it's more than fair to question what the rush was and if the team looked out for the players?
Only management knows how this was handled behind the scenes.
DiPietro was going to have to play a game somewhere whether it be Bridgeport or here.
Is this desperation or are these players actually ready? It may take a while to know regardless how anyone plays tonight.
Blake Comeau was apparently demoted on paper to Bridgeport on 12/24 and recalled for tonight's game.
