Harper, Cepis share ECHL Player of the Week nods

Even though the Trenton Titans will not have any more games to play after the end of this week, it doesn’t mean their players have thrown in the towel. Coming off an impressive resurgent week of almost nothing but victories, forwards Shane Harper and Jacob Cepis shared the ECHL’s Player of the Week honors. Two-thirds of Vince Williams’ top offensive line combined to strafe enemy goaltenders for 12 goals and 27 points.

Reading Redux: Gill once again named top goalie in ECHL

Riley Gill is on quite a streak backstopping the Reading Royals — the top overall seed in the Eastern Conference.

Part of his success is his stinginess: allowing two goals or less in 11 of his 12 appearances. So, it’s no surprise that for the second consecutive week, Gill was selected as the top goaltender in the ECHL. The 28-year-old …

The Dirty Half Dozen: Six choices for the next Flyers head coach

No matter which way you figure, the sands in the hourglass of Peter Laviolette’s tenure as Philadelphia Flyers head coach are rapidly descending towards the bottom. The power vacuum, whether it is created during this six-day block, at the trade deadline or following the completion of this truncated season, will leave a huge question mark as far as discerning which direction the franchise will head going forward. When it occurs, Laviolette will be the latest in a string of those given the reins, who didn’t manage to make it through four seasons at the helm. That’s where our feats of …

Titans captain done for season

Andy Bohmbach endured a concussion, multiple American Hockey League call-ups that went nowhere, and near-constant roster upheaval, but always held it down this year as the heart, soul and captain of the Trenton Titans. His season is done. Per Mike Ashmore of the Trentonian, Bohmbach was placed on the 21-day injured reserve list by the club on Wednesday, stripping the struggling team of their best player for the final games of the regular season. The report is he’ll need shoulder surgery. Trenton is in action later tonight in Elmira, in the club’s final matchup this year, then will come home …
