I have received a couple things worthy of blogging about regarding the Storm.
First, they have traded Michael Pilot to Ohio. I'm not sure what they got in return, but I'd imagine a draft pick or maybe even cash. Pilot, who is an 87, would bring veteran leadership to Ohio and would also clear up Tri-City's overage player problem, for a bit anyways. Though it sounds like Pilot doesn't seem too interested in going out to Ohio and playing. Who can blame him?
Second, it sounds like a defenseman has been injured. Maybe Brandon Martell, which if is right, is a huge blow to the Storm's defense. But, here's where that overage issue comes back into play. My source has informed me that Bliss Littler has added Pierre-Paul Lamoureux to the roster to take the place of the injured defenseman. Pierre-Paul is an 87, so that once again gives the Storm 5.
Protected lists are updated to reflect changes for Omaha, Lincoln, Ohio, and Tri-City.
