1/22 Recap: Brennan bags winner, Persson out with neck injury

Another cold Tuesday night in Buffalo with five games on the developmental slate... In Newfoundland, St. John's co-captain T.J. Brennan fired home the game winner with 1:29 left to play as the Foggies defeated struggling Moncton, 3-2. The goal was Brennan's ninth of the season and sixth on the power play. Fellow 2007 draftee J.S. Allard continued his playmaking ways with two assists for the Fog Devils. The two teams will play it back tomorrow night at Mile One. Drew MacKenzie picked up the primary power play assist on the game winner in Waterloo's 3-2 defeat of Indiana. Brad Eidsness got a rest, giving way to Braely Torris in the Oilers crease as Okotoks traveled up Highway 2 to take on the Calgary Royals. Over the pond in DEL action, Philip Gogulla went pointless in the Sharks 4-1 win over the Metro Stars, while Felix Schutz picked up a pair of minors in Ingolstadt's 3-1 loss at Hannover. Also in Europe, Nykopings defenseman Dennis Persson missed last night's game against Huddinge with a neck injury. He's out at least a week, meaning he'll miss tomorrow's game against Vasteras - a program he should have never left - and likely Sunday's tilt with Yaxjo. Just more bad luck for the Sabres 2006 first-rounder.

What's the deal with Persson anyway? He has to be signed by June right? It's not looking too good judging from what I read about him and his situation.

Persson does have to be inked this summer. Honestly, I think the Sabres stay the course and bring him to NA to see if they can jump start him - mostly via increased ice time.
