Wednesday reading: Crabb, Trouba, LaLeggia, Merrimack AD

Former Tiger Joey Crabb talks about why he chose the Capitals: a chance to make the playoffs. Here is more from the Anchorage Daily News and that he likely will be on the fourth line.

Michigan signee Jacob Trouba, pictured, will not head to the OHL, which has denied offering Trouba, the top college-bound player chosen in the recent NHL Draft, $200,000 to go to Kitchener. He was the ninth pick overall by Winnipeg. He would have been the 22nd Wolverine to leave the program early or never even show up since 2000.

DU defenseman Joey LaLeggia is featured by the Edmonton Oilers in their daily development camp feature.

The Merrimack athletic director has been put on paid leave over a “personnel matter,” according to USCHO.
