With all of the excitement surrounding the second coming of Pheonix Copley to Hershey, last night’s report and subsequent gif on Twitter left many holding their breath. It’s okay to let that go.
Word came this morning that Copley was suffering from dehydration. Having not been in Syracuse at War Memorial at Oncenter, I can’t tell you if it was warmer than usual, and while certainly not downplaying the seriousness of dehydration, it’s better than most of the other injuries goaltenders can endure.
Hershey’s ECHL team, the South Carolina Stingrays, played at Colorado last night. Parker Milner was in net for them (corrected from earlier), so will the Bears make an attempt to get Milner back to Hershey by tonight’s 7:00 puck-drop with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton? Or they could dust off someone from the past to back up Vitek Vanecek – is Olie Kolzig in the house?
Whatever Hershey decides, fans will probably have to wait to see Copley return to the ice at Giant Center.
