*Ed. Note: per sources, Kevin Gagne is currently not with the Gulls although he does appear on the team’s online roster.


  1. According to the Elite Prospects site, Dannick Gauthier signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning this season and was sent to the Wichita Thinder of the ECHL. Jacob Desseres, after his 4-years with University of Calgary Dinos, signed with the Calgary Flames and is with their ECHL team the Colorado Eagles, he played one game last year for the Adirondack Flames.

  2. Ryan Tesink is still St.Louis property, but the assigned to Quad Cities of the ECHL so he'd be closer to the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, so he may get a few call ups this year.

  3. All of this information is listed above.

  4. Thanks, Charles. I missed the NHL affiliations for Ryan, Danick and Jacob. I'm sure DK will help keep me straight with upcoming reports as well.
