Four ofContinue reading “Small Sample Size, Big Opportunities for Gains”

Black Bears Trade Sinclar, Kittleson to St. Cloud

After two games of the season, the Maryland Black Bears are making moves already. Wednesday, they traded defenseman Bryden Sinclair and forward Logan Kittleson to the St. Cloud Norsemen for a tender contract and draft pick. Neither Sinclair nor Kittleson played in Monday’s game.
