The primary focus will be the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL, the Toledo Walleye of the ECHL, and the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL, as well as any interesting news at the NCAA level.
Lake Erie Monsters
Not much went on for Lake Erie since the last roundup, as they only had one game scheduled in that time span. The Monsters got back to .500 with a 3-2 shootout win over the Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday at the Q. The Monsters have another stretch of off days before they head out to Abbotsford for two games against the Heat (October 25th and 26th).
