After One Game, Loktionov is AHL Player of the Week

The hat trick put up by Manchester Monarchs center Andrei Loktionov in the season opener against the Albany River Rats earned him American Hockey League Player of the Week honors for the period ending Sunday.

Loktionov Hat Trick in First Pro Game

First time a Monarchs player has ever scored a hat trick in his debut. He also got at least one assist. Monarchs won, 6-3. I haven’t seen the box score, but I’m guessing Moller got at least a couple assists, since they’re on the same line. More later. I may have to watch the webcast…

From Forum answers VII – Inside the Kings: Linking to my own comment so I can remember where I made it when I turn out to be totally wrong; feel free to ignore

[the question put to the peanut gallery is: if the cap is supposed to come down hard next year, won’t the league do something to stop all these teams from having to dump salary to get under the cap, like maybe decide to keep the cap up anyway, or create some new loophole whereby teams…
