I just got word that Angelo Esposito tore his ACL again, and it’s the same knee he injured in February. That’s certainly not good news for a player that was trying to his way back up the prospect depth chart. Don’t expect to see him back on the ice this season.
The other news is that Boris Valabik will be on his way back to Atlanta shortly. His two-week conditioning assignment with the Wolves is up after this weekend, so he’ll be back in a Thrashers uniform soon. The current plan is to carry a full roster of 23 players and then go from there.
The Thrashers have been lacking in the physicality department lately (in my opinion) so it will be nice to see what big Boris can do.
