Subject:Boosting the 'Monsters
Time:07:47 pm
Current Mood:blahblah
While I'm at it, I just wanted to point everyone to the Lowell Lock Monsters Booster Club, of which I am a proud member. I would certainly encourage you to join, but I have to admit that, other than the superb newsletter, there's not much for any out-of-area folks (we do a lot of bus trips and charity stuff). But we do have former Saint John Flames fans in the club, and some other out-of-area folks.

Speaking of the newsletter (which is only superb because I've taken over editorship of the thing as of the September issue), the latest is usually released the week before our monthly meeting (typically the first Monday of the month) and within any time from days to a few weeks of its mailing, it can be found online in PDF format. September & October are up already, and there are articles about attending the Stanley Cup Finals in Tampa (which I did, specifically to see Calgary play) and the AHL Booster Club Convention (from the eyes of a rookie attendee). You'll also find an article on the new AHL rules, and editorials from both myself and the current Booster Club president. Newsletters can be found on the Calendar & Info page.

Future issues should include more Lock Monster-specific information and photos, as the season wears on, and we hope to have player bios again, too.

I thought it might be of interest to some of you.

Subject:Lock Monsters trim roster
Time:07:39 pm
Current Mood:crappycrappy
The Lock Monsters trimmed their roster today. Assignments were as follows:

The following players have been assigned to the Florida Everblades: Craig Kowalski, Damian Surma, Matt Hendricks, Tom Reimann, Dan Sullivan, Brad Church and Greg Hornby.

The following players have been assigned to the Las Vegas Wranglers: Sebastien Centomo, Patrik Nilson, Chris Stanley, Adam Huxley, Regan Darby, Darren Lynch and Dan Tudin.


Of course, this is confusing, as Lowell no longer has a "Dan Sullivan", so I'm wondering if this meant "Brian Sullivan."

Full article here.

Anyway - no surprises in my book, although I was hoping to get another look at Craig Kowalski. He really made an impression on me in goal last night, and I wanted to see if it was a fluke or what. Looks like the Carolina/Calgary-assigned goalies will be Cam Ward/Brent Krahn as projected. No idea what's going on with Rob Zepp & Davis Parley yet; depends if Lowell wants to keep 2 or 3 goalies on the roster (at least one gets sent elsewhere - the other could end up being a third in Lowell or sent down).

Would it be inappropriate of me to make a request that this page/community be decked out in Lock Monsters' colors? Reds, Purples, Grays...

I've got a feeling Staal will be getting a lot of publicity up in Lowell.
