Quebec City police search for Gervais Munger, missing co-owner of a QMJHL team


There’s some scary news out of Quebec City this weekend, as police search for Gervais Munger, co-owner of Quebec Major Hockey League team the Chicoutimi Sagueneens. Here is more about the troubling situation from the Toronto Sun.

The search for the popular owner of a Quebec junior hockey team who went missing in a boating accident is entering its second day.

Quebec provincial police divers will begin searching Lac-St-Jean on Sunday for any signs of Gervais Munger.

Munger, who is in his 50s, went missing Saturday in the massive lake some 230 kilometres north of Quebec City.

Munger was apparently thrown from that boat along with two other men who managed to swim to shore.

It’s a disturbing situation. Best wishes to Munger, along with his friends and family. We’ll keep you updated on his situation.

Sharks send three to AHL; still waiting on Torres suspension

The San Jose Sharks have assigned forwards Nikolay Goldobin and Melker Karlsson and defenseman Mirco Mueller to AHL San Jose.

Goldobin and Mueller are both first-round picks — the former in 2014, the latter in 2013.

Goldobin had one goal and two assists in five preseason games. It’s possible he could be called back up when the NHL suspends Raffi Torres.

Torres remains part of the 23-man roster (see below) but is facing a lengthy ban for his hit on Anaheim’s Jakub Silfverberg. Torres has a hearing today.

Rookie defenseman Dylan DeMelo is also on the roster. The 22-year-old had one goal and two assists in four preseason games.

Glencross released from another PTO, this time by Avs

Washington Capitals v Ottawa Senators

Curtis Glencross’ hard-luck preseason continued on Monday, as the Avalanche announced they released him from his training camp tryout.

Glencross had previously been cut from Toronto’s camp, which he described as “kind of a shock” move. Following that release, the 32-year-old quickly shifted to Colorado but arrived fairly late in the overall process, and only got a bit of exposure before being let go.

While some thought yesterday’s trade of Freddie Hamilton to Calgary may have opened up a spot for Glencross, the Avs now appear to be going in a different direction.

A two-time 20-goal scorer that netted 13 in 71 games last year, it’s unclear what lies ahead for Glencross.
