OTTERS REPORT: Logjam up front headlines final weeks of preseason

OTTERS WRAP-UP: Goaltending battle continues for Lawr, Dekoning

   August 30, 2014 8:45 pm    0

If you thought Daniel Dekoning was a shoo-in to back up Devin Williams this season, stop right there… 2014 second-round pick Jake Lawr is starting to state his case why he should stay as a 16-year-old. Dekoning would make the most sense on paper. He’s 2 years older than Lawr. He has OHL regular-season experience…

   August 27, 2014 7:53 pm    0

Perhaps the Erie Otters defense is more set than I thought. At least that’s the impression I got from GM Sherry Bassin after today’s Prospects Game at Erie Insurance Arena. He hasn’t begun pondering the idea of acquiring a veteran on the trade market, even though he has only three experienced defensemen (Travis Dermott, Cory…

OTTERS COUNTDOWN: #2 – Williams era finally begins

   August 24, 2014 1:00 am    0

It seems like Devin Williams has been around the Erie Otters forever. In reality, it has been only three seasons. But I suspect it felt longer at times as Williams waited patiently to be the team’s No. 1 goaltender. After an extended dress rehearsal that was the 2014 OHL playoffs, and 86 games of experience…
