AHL: Week 1 Recap



The American Hockey League season is officially underway, having begun on Friday October 12th, with a total of seven games taking place. While I would absolutely love to do a little analysis on each game, doing so would result in a ridiculously long post and would take so long that Week two would already be underway but the time I got around to posting it. So instead I decided that I would just cover all the scores from this past weekend and some other AHL news.

Other American Hockey League news that is a result of this opening weekend is that Crunch player Corey Conacher was named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week. In his opening weekend Conacher led all players with five points, two goals and three assists, in two games.

Another top news story was the signing of goaltender Ben Bishop by the Binghamton Senators. Bishop has appeared in games for the Ottawa Senators as well as the St. Louis Blues. The 32012 All-Star was name the Reebok Top Goaltender during the skills competition.
