Cunti, Quick Scratched

The official freshmen debuts of Kevin Quick and Luca Cunti will have to wait.

Quick is a healthy scratch for No.10 Michigan vs. No.2 Boston College tonight in the Icebreaker Tournament, according to The Michigan Daily. Update: This game is finished with Michigan winning 4-3 in overtime.

According to the St. Cloud Times, Cunti has not received his amateur status clearance from the NCAA as of yet and is therefore not eligible for St. Cloud State as they play Canisius in their opener.

The Book on Boutin

There have been a lot of questions surrounding goaltending prospect Jonathan Boutin in the last week or so.

Eyebrows were first raised roughly a week ago when Boutin, a 2003 third round pick who was named AHL Goaltender of the Month last December for AHL Springfield, was demoted to ECHL Mississippi and Ryan Munce was named the backup netminder in Norfolk.

Just a few days and one Admirals regular season game later, it was learned Ramo would miss 3-4 weeks with a high ankle sprain, opening the door for Boutin's return.

However, eyebrows were raised even higher when Morgan Cey was named to the Admirals roster instead of Boutin, who was thought to be a sure-thing for Norfolk going into the season.

Ramo Out 3-4 Weeks

(Norfolk Admirals release)

Today, Norfolk Admirals General Manager Claude Loiselle announced that goaltender Karri Ramo has suffered a high ankle sprain and will be out three to four weeks. Subsequently, the Admirals have recalled goaltender Morgan Cey from the Mississippi Sea Wolves (ECHL).
