Segment 1: Laval Rocket & Habs Prospects

  • It was a disappointing second half of the Rocket's six-game homestand, despite picking up two points last week. Let's take a look at Laval's performances against the Toronto Marlies and Lehigh Valley Phantoms, and talk about changes in the defense, injuries, and Cayden Primeau's slow start.

Segment 2: Around the AHL

We'll take a look at league-wide initiatives, as well as get a picture of AHL standings through one month of the regular season. Plus, we'll introduce you to this week's Player of the Week (spoiler alert: Laval fans will be familiar with this name!), as well as October's players of the month.
