Updated: Cormier hurt; Training camp roster set

Patrice Cormier left the Thrashers practice facility on crutches Thursday after he was hit with a puck while blocking a shot during the final four-on-four scrimmage of rookie camp.

X-rays were taken and the team will announce the results on Friday.

Cormier immediately fell to the ice after being hit with the puck. He did get up and told a teammate that he was all right.

I will provide updates and more details as they become available.

It’s crazy to see McLaren on a tryout. Would like to see him move Buff to a forward spot.

I can pare the field to 14 forwards but only to 9 defensemen. There has to be a trade(s) coming.

Is there any top names that were in rookie camp that will not participate in trainging camp. Also regarding Cormier and his court experience. What is the worse case scenario on sentencing if he is found guilty.

Chris Vivlamore, nice update on training camp. Tough break on Cormier. Hope it’s not serious. I love the upcoming weeks. The weather will get cooler. Football has started back up. Hockey and basketball follow suit. And then there’s the LCS and World Series. I can only hope the Braves can reach the NLCS and beyond. Would be a great way to send Bobby Cox off to his retirement.

Well, yesterday … I got my Center Ice ordered. I’m sure they’ll run that free preview to start the season. If there are any other insomniacs out there, the West Coast games on Center Ice are a great companion. It might be a lot of fun to watch the L.A. Kings, Phoenix Coyotes, and Vancouver Canucks this year.

That is very true about following some western teams, Brendan. A lot of folks sort of adopted the Yotes because they are under duress as a franchise but still played themselves into the playoffs in spite of all the drama. I need to call about my CI.

Kracker, have you decided which team(s) in the Western Conference that you will follow this year? I think I’m going with the Kings and Coyotes. What Phoenix did last year was remarkable. In the post-Gretzky era of the Coyotes, the team made the playoffs, all while the threat of relocation was ever present. That takes character, as a franchise. They seemingly made a commitment to ignore all external aspects of the team, knowing that, as players, they had no control over it anyway. The results were a 4th place finish, while contending for their division championship. I’m just sorry they drew Detroit as a 1st round opponent. I sincerely hope the Coyotes can make it back into the playoffs this year and win a round, or two. In their franchise history, they’ve only won two series, since 1979-80. When we speak of Thrasher failures, we should realize that other clubs have had a worse go of it than we have.

SCHUBERT, the Alaska Aces have a spot reserved just for you.

Well, scratch Cormier off my Thrashers list above. Having depth is a good thing.
