Catching Up With Rising Star Frank(ie?) Corrado

Back in June, I was fortunate enough to chat with Vancouver Canucks prospect Frank Corrado. He had just come off a strong season for the Sudbury Wolves (being nominated for best OHL defenseman along the way).

Things couldn't get better for the young blueliner, right? Wrong. After our chat, he was named the 7th best prospect by Canucks Army this summer. And he was then named the Captain of the Wolves. I can't decide which one holds more clout and I'm sure he feels the same way. He has rewarded the Wolves by posting prolific numbers while shouldering most of the "heavy lifting." In fact, he recently decided that shutting down Niagara's best players wasn't enough, so he tacked on 5 assists of his own.

I figured now was as good a time as any to catch up with Corrado, and see what he's up to. Other than crushing the souls of his opponents in the Ontario Hockey League, of course.

Wolves Take Wild One, Get Back in Win Column

Eddie Lack debuted his spiffy new gear tonight.

The Wolves came into this tilt against San Antonio with a two-game losing streak, which was a cause for no concern because of the manner in which they had lost both games. They had completely fallen apart in the final period, collectively imploding. Coming into this one the Rampage weren't exactly lighting the world on fire, either, holding a 2-2-1 record (good for last place in a stacked South division). In hindsight, we should have expected them to struggle without the calming presence of Tim Duncan.

This was a wild game, which featured a flurry of goals from both teams. The Wolves blew a three goal lead in the third period, but a late goal from Jordan Schroeder - which made it 6-5 - allowed them to hang onto a much needed 2 points, getting back in the win column.

The SYAE Podcast: With J.Bowman

This jersey may or not belong to my guest today.

This time around, I'm joined by J.Bowman - which had to happen, after his recent appearance on the Fake SportsCentre - as we discuss some of our insights from the Wolves' visit to Abbotsford this past weekend, the lockout, and whether or not the Stanley Cup champion will have an asterisk by their name due to the shortened season.

We also go on an elongated tangent about the "rules" of wearing player jerseys, and just how much we miss the Vancouver Grizzlies. And there's lot more, but I'm not willing to divulge everything in this tease.
