SURPRISE: Kent Hughes makes a change in goal, and goalie Strauss Mann officially joins the Laval Rocket

Here's something interesting.

A few days after finally putting an end to the three-goalie situation at the Laval Rocket, General Manager Kent Hughes is already bringing back Strauss Mann.

An intriguing change in the net.

Strauss Mann already arrives in Laval!




See the announcement:

«The Rocket has recalled goalie Strauss Mann from the Trois-Rivières Lions.»

- Laval Rocket

«After two quality starts in Trois-Rivières, Strauss Mann is immediately recalled to Laval.»

- Anthony Marcotte

This means that after just two games with the Lions, Mann is already back with the Rocket. Interesting.

Honestly, we thought the three-goalie situation was over for good in Laval, but oh well.

What does this announcement mean for Kasimir Kaskisuo and Jakub Dobes? Good question, but we'll keep an eye on it for you.

Some speculate on a possible trade involving Dobes, but we're not there at all for the moment according to all indications.

Strauss Mann, 25, has a save percentage of 0.955 in Trois-Rivières and a goals-against average of 1.42. In Laval, it's 0.879 and 3.69. (in a total of 17 games)

Stay tuned!
