Holloway injured his knee on this play. Expected to miss a few months. Horrible luck.




Fell into the boards knee first last game. Kid seems to have the Tyler Benson tier luck early in his career.

Sucks, he was just starting to get comfortable.

I'm worried he is going to turn into another JP. A player who has skills and the potential to be more than he ends up. Holloway brings things I like but I worry about the scoring and now the injuries are piling up.

Extra challenge - Connor Brown is skating again and path of least resistance for the team is to just insert him in that spot...Blowing next year's cap in the process.

That's happening. Zero percent chance the org has any interest in avoiding it.

I guess will be good to just get that game 10 out of the way so we can wait until next year to be mad about it again :) Maybe Brown will sign for league min next year and score 30.

Huh??

They must be calling someone else up, because even if Brown is healthy, they still are short someone. Not sure who it could be though. No one lighting it up on the farm team at the moment.

My guess would be Lane Pederson. Low offence 26-year old journeyman fits what we usually look for in a fourth liner.

Too bad for Holloway, he was starting to look like a real NHL player lately.
