BSens Claesson Rookie Season

A look into the world of the American Hockey League outside of just the normal game re-caps. Current A-Devils — plus Merrill, Gelinas — playoff-eligble By Pete Dougherty, Staff writer So with the Albany Devils competing for a playoff berth, which players are on the team’s American Hockey League “Clear Day” list? None. There is no longer a Clear Day roster. The most recent Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL and its players eliminated the Clear Day, which established in early March the 22 players eligible for playoff participation. Instead, any eligible player on a club’s roster at the time of the NHL’s trade deadline — which was Wednesday — is eligible.

Could he have gotten more for Pirri, the American Hockey League’s leading scorer last season? Maybe, but you never know what others think of your players until you make them available. Did Bowman and the Hawks give up too soon on Pirri? Again, it’s possible, but he was in the organization four years and coach Joel Quenneville had real issues with his 200-foot game.

Brandon Pirri Traded

A look into the world of the American Hockey League outside of just the normal game re-caps. Brandon Pirri traded by Blackhawks to Panthers BY MARK LAZERUS Staff Reporter March 2, 2014 7:56PM Less than a year ago, on draft day, Hawks general manager Stan Bowman was touting Brandon Pirri as his second-line center of the future. But on Sunday, Bowman traded Pirri to Florida for a third-round draft pick this June and a fifth-round pick in 2016. Pirri, the AHL’s leading scorer last season, had six goals and five assists in 28 games with the Hawks this season, but never showed the all-around game Joel Quenneville wanted to see from him. With highly skilled Teuvo Teravainen in the pipeline, Pirri — a restricted free agent … Continue reading
