Bruno Gervais is the Saratoga Spine Player of
the Week. The 29-year-old veteran defenseman recorded
a three-point night on Saturday, the most for
the Phantoms this season. Gervais assisted on
the first two Adirondack goals and then blasted
home one for himself for his third of the year.
Gervais provides valuable experience to the blueline
with over 400 games played in the NHL, mostly
with the New York Islanders. Gervais is also a
brand-new Dad welcoming little boy Gabriel to
the family four months ago.

of the second period for the B-Sens and then a

A large gathering of 4,618 jammed into the Glens
Falls Civic Center on Youth Jersey Night and saw
some wild back-and-forth action especially at
the end of the second period. When the dust had
cleared, Albany emerged with a 5-2 lead and were
able to hold off the Phantoms late rally attempt
for a 5-3 final to even the season series at 2-2.
Tim Sestito had one goal and two assists for the
Devils and Joe Whitney had a goal and a helper.
Adirondack received goals fro Brandon Manning,

Adirondack lost a 6-3 decision at the Penguins
on October 18.
Former Adirondack Phantom Harry Zolnierczyk returns
to Glens Falls for the first time since being
traded late last season. "Harry Z" leads
the Penguins with eight goals. The Flyers organization

in exchange for Jay Rosehill and Zolnierczyk spent
the rest of the season with their affiliate in
Norfolk. Last summer he was dealt by the Ducks
to the Penguins for defenseman Alex Grant.

the league in wins at 10-3-2, 2.34, .900.

experience. The 34-year-old is returning to his
original stomping grounds for the twilight of
his career where he starred from 1999-2003. He
is the all-time leader in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
history in games played (349), goals (107), assists
(161) and points (268).
The Penguins are third in the league in offense
at 3.67 goals per game trailing Binghamton and

Sensational Russian Rookie Nikita Kucherov has
been lighting it up with 13-11-24 which is currently
second in the AHL in points and also second in
goals. But Kucherov was recently called up to
parent-club Tampa Bay and scored his first career
NHL goal on Monday night. Another young Russian
talent is close behind for the team scoring lead;
Vladislav Mamestnikov has 8-13-21.
Former Adirondack Phantom and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
defenseman Joey Mormina serves as an alternate
captain. Former Albany River Rat Mike Angelidis
(2006-10) is back with the Crunch as their captain.
The Crunch have been a particularly streaky team
this year. Syracuse was 9-3-1 a couple weeks ago
but have gone winless in their last four with
a mark of 0-3-1 including back-to-back losses
to Hamilton last weekend 4-1 and 3-0.
