This is the time of year when hockey news just kind of stops.
The major free agent push is over, and we are still at least three weeks away from seeing the AHL schedule.
The prospect camp went really well, and it was nice of the wide to include some video from those games and shootouts.
Aeros head coach John Torchetti got to work with some of the guys that he will be coaching down in Houston next year, and speaking of which, he and the Wild have yet to announce Torchetti's assistants.
The Wild M.O. has been to have two assistants working with the head coach down in Houston, so expect some news on that later this week.
I really wish I could take a guess as to who might be coming here to join him, but it really could be anybody.
The last time he had a head coaching gig, with Moncton of the QMJHL, he took Tony Martino with him. Scott Allen worked with him in San Antonio back in 2002-03, but he is now an assistant with the New York Islanders.
Martino last coached in 2008-09 when he took over for a very poor Tulsa Oilers team that featured former Aeros center Jeff Christian.
That is all for now ... I do think we'll finally hear from the Aeros this week as to when their home opener may be. Based on all the other reports from other teams, and how many of them are opening on Oct. 7 and 8, expect the Aeros to open up on the road.
I think the Aeros won't be at home until that second week.
