>News From Across the Pond

>- Former RedHawk captain Derek Edwardson has a new home for the 2009-2010 season. Eddy joins HC Fassa of the “Serie A” Italian league, after spending the previous two seasons with Heilbronner EC, in Germany. Serie A is the top professional league in Italy. Fassa plays in Canazei, in the Italian province of Trento.

– While one alum has a new home for next season, another one is staying put, yet again. Danny Stewart has re-signed for a fourth season with the Coventry Blaze, in England. Stewart, a fan-favorite of the Blaze, graduated from Miami in 2003, and helped lead the Blaze to back to back Elite League titles in 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. Coventry finished as the league runner-up in 2008-2009. 
– An Italian website has forward Marty Guerin signing with SG Pontebba, in Italy. Guerin spent the 2008-2009 season with the ECHL’s Charlotte Checkers, but missed almost the entire season with a knee-injury, suffered early on. Stay tuned to hear if this is a confirmed signing, or simply a rumor. 

>Guerin Placed on IR

>The Chatlotte Checkers of the ECHL have placed former RedHawk forward Marty Guerin on the 30-day IR. No details of Guerin’s injury were given.

More information as it becomes available.

>Miamians New Mugs…

>As the ECHL begins to update their 20008-2009 rosters, I just thought I’d share some of our Miamians photos:

For those that don’t know…here are the players:

(Top Right) Charlie Effinger, G, Gwinnett Gladiators

(Side) Nino Musitelli, F, Dayton Bombers

I’ll also be doing a “Who Plays Where” post for the upcoming season in a few days, once final cuts are made.

>Guerin Released to Charlotte

>The Hartford Wolf Pack have released forward Marty Guerin on the basis of returning him back to the Charlotte Checkers of the ECHL.

Making a difficult subject easier to understand: Guerin went to camp with the Wolfpack, but didn’t make the team, so he’ll play for Charlotte this season. Same situation with Musitelli and the WB/Scranton Penguins.

>Updates from Around the NHL

>Just a short update here. I’ve compiled this post of where our Miami alumni are, training camp wise after all the cuts, reassignments, and whatnot.

Los Angeles Kings:

Assigned goaltender Jeff Zatkoff to Manchester of the AHL

Montreal Canadiens:

Assigned forward Mike Glumac to Hamilton of the AHL

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins:

Assigned forward Nino Musitelli to Dayton of the ECHL

Other notes:

– Ryan Jones is still in the hunt for an NHL roster spot in Nashville

– Marty Guerin will be attending the Hartford Wolfpack AHL camp

– Nathan Davis is attending the Rockford IceHogs AHL camp

– Mitch Ganzak is in camp with the Binghamton Senators of the AHL

– Alec Martinez is still in camp with the LA Kings

– Kevyn Adams may indeed be a Chicago Blackhawk on opening night, as he was a free agent invitee. He’s had a solid camp for a veteran player.
