October 17-23 CBJ Prospect Week In Review Part 1 CHL
Back at it Jackets nation time for the week in review, it was a rough weekend in Springfield as the Falcons went 0-3 this weekend. The Falcons only scored two goals last week and Cam Atkinson was part of both off them. Atkinson had a assist on Saturday on Wade Macleod’s goal and then scored the only goal in a 4-1 loss on Sunday. The Chicago Express went 1-1 this weekend winning its home opener then losing on Sunday to South Carolina. Going off a tweet it appears someone with at least a little connection to the Jackets is heading to the Windy City, as Paul Dainon was not looking forward to a 15 hour drive.
