So as some rumors predicted, a couple of St. Louis Blues signed with the UHL’s Missouri River Otters. Barret Jackman and Ryan Johnson are the newest Otters.
I’m worried about these NHLers in the lower leagues, though.
It seems like Dale Purinton, usually a spare defenseman for the Rangers, may be banned from the ECHL for fighting. Right now, he’s suspended indefinitely.
And Derian Hatcher had a tough time out his first night as a Motor City Mechanic. Fans called him a scab and told him to go home.
I would have kept shouting back “I can’t go home! I’m locked out!”
Seriously, though. Those NHL guys need to be careful.
