Tyler Cuma played his first NHL game of the season when the Minnesota Wild welcomed the Chicago Blackhawks. Former 67s Bryan Bickell was playing for Chicago.
Cuma got into a fight with Belleville Bull (and Ottawa native) Shawn Lalonde. Guess they will have some interesting chats if they both return to junior. Which may not be a given for Tyler.
Looks like Cuma may be making a case to be the 7th defenseman according to Star Tribune blogger Michael Russo. Check out his blog here.
Here's the Minnesota Wild's take on the game.
Meanwhile, the 67s return from their road trip with a 1-1 record. I only caught a bit of the game on Friday. They had just given up two PPGs but were still leading 3-1. From the game sheet it looks like it was open season on Perugini. They lost 4-5 in OT. But they had a better result in Sudbury on Saturday where they won 3-1. Nesbitt wore the C and Nigro and Gibbons wore A's. Here's that game sheet.
Home opener against Niagara on Friday. Hope to see you there!
