Today’s hockey minute: NHL “borrows” and “returns” AHL players a lot, apparently….


My #1 burning hockey question: do they still wear mullets?

The other thing I need to learn is this business of “returning” and “borrowing” players from the AHL team.

I saw the news on the site about two players called up to the Boston Bruins:

The Providence Bruins, member of the American Hockey League, announced that the Boston Bruins have recalled goaltender Tuukka Rask and returned netminder Jordan Siglet to Providence. The P-Bruins have 22 players on their roster, including 13 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.

Rask, 20, is off to a 6-1 start in his first professional season, ranking him second in the AHL in wins and sixth with a 2.00 goals-against-average.

Then today…this:

The Bruins returned Matt Lashoff and Tuukka Rask to Providence today. Lashoff played 9:26 last night against Buffalo, registering one shot.

So it seems it’s pretty fluid back and forth. Research needed.

And I may have found the answer to question # 1 here:

Anaheim Ducks’ George Parros – is he rocking a fu and a mullet?

The ‘stache rivals JR’s.
