Lake Erie Monsters roster 2010
Redmond’s story is remarkable. He suffered a stroke as a youth and severed his femoral artery at a morning skate with the Winnipeg Jets. Both times, doctors told him there was a 50/50 chance he could resume his hockey career. Nice to see him don the Red, White and Blue — his first opportunity with USA Hockey.
USA’s U18 World Championship team got five points from University of Denver recruit Auston Matthews — widely considered the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NHL draft — plus another goal by Pioneers incoming freshman Troy Terry of Highlands Ranch in beating Slovakia 10-0 on Friday in the Swiss-hosted tournament. Matthews, in a lot of ways, is the American version of Connor McDavid. Don’t scoff — the Arizona product, 17, just broke Patrick Kane’s U18 record for points by an American. Matthews is drafted by Everett of the WHL and is also considering North Dakota, Michigan, Boston College and Boston University for his one-year stint, similar to what Jack Eichel did this season at BU. Matthews missed the 2015 draft cutoff date by two days (he was born Sept. 17).
Here’s the website for the Avalanche’s new American Hockey League affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage. The five-year contract with the clubs begins next season. The Avalanche produced the following news release Friday (I continue to get asked the obvious: yes, all Lake Erie Monsters players under contract with the Avalanche will relocate in San Antonio, and all Rampage players under contract with the Florida Panthers will relocate to their new AHL affiliate in Portland, Maine):
“We are pleased to announce this new affiliation with San Antonio, ” said Avalanche Executive Vice President/General Manager Joe Sakic. “The Rampage organization has a great reputation and we look forward to our prospects developing in such an environment.”
The Lake Erie Monsters in Cleveland have served as Colorado’s AHL affiliate for the past eight seasons dating back to 2007-08. Prior to that, the Avs split an AHL affiliate with the Carolina Hurricanes for two years, spending the 2006-07 campaign in Albany, N.Y. (Albany River Rats) and 2005-06 in Lowell, Mass. (Lowell Lock Monsters). The Cornwall Aces (Cornwall, Ontario) served as the club’s primary affiliate during the Avalanche’s inaugural season of 1995-96, followed by 10 years with the Hershey Bears in Hershey, Pa. (1996-2005).
