Wednesday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum - Donskoi picking it up at WJC
Going to be on the road most of the day, so we'll kick this off with little fanfare. Anything goes down, plop it into the comments.
- From the WJC: USA destroyed Slovakia 6-1 Tuesday; Drew Shore (6 SOG) scored his first goal of the tourney while Nick Bjugstad picked up an assist (and 7 shots!). Both were a +1. The Americans play Germany Thursday.
- Canada did one better in a 7-2 thrashing of the Czech Republic. Erik Gudbranson notched an assist as Quinton Howden went scoreless; neither registered a SOG. Team Canada faces Norway this evening.
- Joonas Donskoi broke out nicely with 2 assists as Finland shut down Switzerland 4-0. The 99th pick in last summer's entry draft finished with 3 SOG and a +2. The Fins take on Germany this afternoon.
- The Amerks appear pleased with the additions of Keaton Ellerby and Bill Thomas.
- Thought you knew everything about Dale Tallon's tenure as Chicago's GM? We beg to differ. Here be The Blueprint.
- A number of Panthers will be rather busy throughout the day. (Let us know if you bump into any of them.)
