Contrary to my earlier post, it was Hugh Jessiman and not fellow Connecticut native Chris Drury who scored the game-winner. We talked to Hugh just now, and the great revelation was he spent the summer working with a boxing coach to improve his fighting on the ice, as well as his core strength.
Meanwhile, Tom Renney said he plans to cut a dozen players later today, although none of them sound like they’ll be major surprises. He mentioned that Jessiman and Lauri Korpikoski will play in some exhibition games, and my assumption is most of the top prospects will as well.
All 39 remaining players will make the trip to West Point, where they’ll have team-building experiences and have lunch with cadets on Thursday.
More in a bit…
