Slow days around the ice right now.
A few notes of interest from the web world.
A couple of former Kitchener Rangers defencemen are joining new teams. Ben Shutron has moved from the University of New Brunswick to the ECHL's Orlando Solar Bears.
Big Boris Valabik, who once played with the Atlanta Thrashers, has gone from the top level in Slovak hockey to the second tier in Russia in the Supreme Hockey League.
In the prospects department, pint-sized Jeremy Bracco (5th round, 2013) is proving that size doesn't matter.
Bracco is coming off a huge year with the U.S. U-17 team where he led the squad in scoring with 74 points in 54 games.
The 17-year-old is eligible for the 2015 NHL draft and committed to Boston College.
An interesting portion from the story courtesy of the USA Hockey Magazine reads: "Bracco said that as of right now, he is determined to live out his dream of playing college hockey and earn a world-class education."
A bunch of former Rangers have committed to CIS squads for the up-coming season - Eric Ming (Queen's), Stephen Midensky (Ryerson), Zach Lorentz (UW) and Tyson Teichmann (St. Thomas).
