6:55 PM — Marco Cousineau in goal for the Jackals…
6:50 PM — Trenton starters are…
Rest of Trenton roster is…
Vichorek, Leaderer, Southorn, Godlewski
Zancanaro, Stoesz, Lombardi, Nagy, Potacco, Arhontas, Germain
6:40 PM — Arhontas, as you can see, will wear #25. I last saw him in the ECAC Playoffs this month…undersized kid for sure. Slightly shorter than Tony Zancanaro if you can believe that. Grinder, hustle guy…not the most skilled kid out there for sure, but the effort was always there when I saw him. I’ve seen him play eight times in person for Princeton…he was 1-3-4 with a plus-one and two PIM’s.
6:34 PM — And here’s Arhontas from warmups…
6:26 PM — Here’s Arhontas from this year…
6:25 PM — Trenton signs former Princeton forward Matt Arhontas…
(PR) Trenton, NJ – The Trenton Devils today signed forward Matt Arhontas. The announcement was made by Albany and Trenton General Manager Chris Lamoriello.
Arhontas, 24, recently concluded his college career at Princeton University (ECAC). In four seasons with Princeton, the Naperville, IL native compiled 28 goals and 37 assists with a plus-15 in 127 career games, posting a career-high 19 points his senior year. Arhontas played three seasons of junior hockey with the USHL’s Waterloo Black Hawks from 2004 to 2007, serving as captain his third year and scoring a career-best 18 goals and 45 points. The 5-7, 160-lb. right-handed shooter was born March 10, 1987.
Trenton hosts Elmira Wednesday at 7 p.m. and plays its final home game of the 2010-11 season against the Reading Royals Friday at 7 p.m.
3:40 PM — As is the norm, not a whole lot going on at this time of day. But, since I’m here, I’d might as well update you on the travels of Ryan Ginand, who was recently called up to AHL Albany.
In two games, Ginand has two goals and two assists and is a plus-two with seven shots on goal and four penalty minutes. Couldn’t be happier for him…nice to see he’s making the most of an opportunity that he deserved much earlier in the season.
Curtis Marouelli is your referee for the evening. Purchase tickets accordingly…sitting behind the glass behind the benches might be ill-advised, as coaches will likely be punching it often throughout the evening.
