The Prospects

New ECHL partnership will send Syracuse Crunch depth players just down the road: “The Adirondack Thunder, based in Glens Falls, announced Tuesday that it will be ECHL home of some Tampa Bay prospects that don’t stick with the Crunch. Tampa Bay will be the secondary affiliate of Adirondack, as the Thunder’s true affiliation is with the New Jersey Devils. Technically, the Lightning’s arrangement with Adirondack is called a ‘working agreement.’” [Syracuse.com]
