Today in the "A": Monday Quick Hits

Monday was "Clear Day" in the "A". All 30 teams submitted their Clear Day rosters to the league office in advance of a 3:00 PM Eastern time deadline. The Clear Day rosters call for 22 players. According to the league website:

"Only those players listed on a team’s Clear Day roster are eligible to compete in the remainder of the AHL regular season and in the 2012 Calder Cup Playoffs, unless emergency conditions arise as a result of recall, injury or suspension."

The league will release the Clear Day rosters later today. I'll have the Falcons Clear Day roster here at The Cannon.

Elsewhere around the AHL, Rockford IceHogs goalie Carter Hutton was named the AHL Player of the Week. It's the second time in seven weeks for Hutton to be so honored. After playing for the Worcester Sharks last season, Hutton signed as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks organization.

Speaking of the Sharks, they will be hosting the Bridgeport Sound Tigers tonight at 7PM. The Sharks are holding onto the eighth playoff spot in the East, with a group of five teams all within three points of them. Following the Sharks in the standings are: Manchester (61 pts), Portland (60 pts), Adirondack (59), Springfield (59) and Providence (58).
