So - here is what the depth chart looks like so far...
Patrick Kennedy (Utica contract)
Alex Biega (R)
Frank Corrado (R)
Kent Huskins (Utica contract)
Bobby Sanguinetti (R)
Jeremie Blain (R)
Kane Lafranchise (Utica contract)
John Negrin (Utica contract)
Seems like Mallet will be in tough to stick in the AHL at center...
Also, with three Utica contracts on defence, will McEneny be destined to begin his pro career in Kalamazoo?
Lain is 25 and Archibald is 24 - you've got to think that this is the year that determines if they ever get a bottom 6 NHL job - or are career AHLers. Grenier, and Friesen are 23 and are pretty much in the same boat.
Kenins is also 23, but will be getting his first chance at North American pro hockey - I am curious to see how he will do.
It's a great day for hockey!
