News And Notes: Murphy, McIvor, Boudens, Maillet

A few tidbits as a long off-season drags on:

- Recent graduates Marcus McIvor and Matt Murphy have found a home for next season as both have signed with the ECHL's Fort Wayne Komets. The Komets, who are an affiliate of the Vegas Golden Knights, also inked Acadia forward Stephen Harper to a contract. The trio will join former Red Matt Boudens, who just completed his rookie season with the Komets. Boudens scored ten goals with Fort Wayne while also appearing in ten games with the AHL's Chicago Wolves.

- Former Reds - and U Sports - superstar Philippe Maillet has been named to the Washington Capitals 31 player playoff roster. Maillet led their AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, in scoring this season with 17 goals and 27 assists in 61 games. As one of the top four teams in the conference when the season was suspended, Washington will receive a bye through the first round of the playoffs. They will instead play seeding games against Boston, Tampa Bay, and Philadelphia. The playoffs get started Saturday in Toronto and Edmonton.
