Word on the street is that tough guy Gordie Dwyer has been invited to Isles camp. It is likely however that this invite is to fill a roster spot down in Bridgeport rather than the big club. Mind you this is just a rumor right now.

This was worthy to note because the following bruisers are currently on the Bridgeport roster: Jackman, Bootland, and Pitton. I think it’s safe to say that the Isles organization does not want any of their prospects pushed around. This should enable the kids to learn the Ted Nolan grit system early on if anything. I think I may just have to follow Bridgeport a little closer this year.
