Cannon Blasts - August 21, 2014

Your (every other) daily barrage of Cannon Blasts!

  • The club announced yesterday a new ECHL affiliation with the Kalamazoo Wings for the 2014-2015 season.
  • Porty detailed Nathan Horton as part of covering every player on the roster before the season starts. CBJ fans may be worrying a bit about another Horton setback - "There have been whispers this summer that Horton had an ailing back, that at one point he put the brakes on his conditioning to avoid a serious injury. GM Jarmo Kekalainen said Horton was just doing "maintenance and strengthening," that his back is "fine."
  • Oh, NHL...changing up the Draft Lottery. We would be interested if this were any of the previous 15 drafts.
  • For all of you that bought McElhinney's #31 sweater last season, well, I've got some bad news for you.
  • Preseason tickets go on sale TOMORROW. That's right - exactly one month until we get to see some hockey! (Note the time change on 9/21 against St. Louis - now a 6:30 P.M. start)
  • (No Johansen news as of now)/

Make sure to check the site as we ramp up previews and coverage for the season. It won't be long now!
