Let’s go over some news and notes:
- With such a horrible start to the season, frustration is running rampant. Jason Zucker believes everyone on the team needs to be better moving forward. Including head coach Bruce Boudreau.
Zucker: "I think more than (a meeting's) going to have to jumpstart us to be honest with you. It’s going to be each individual guy from Bruce on down. Bruce has got to be better. We’ve got to be better. Everybody’s got to be better. That’s it."— Michael Russo (@RussoHockey) October 18, 2019
