Remember Ryan Tesink? Well, he reportedly had a full-contact practice with the Armada today.
Armada : Ryan Tesink pratique 100% contact cet après-midi à Boisbriand.

Tesink was traded to Blainville-Boisbriand in January in exchange for Saint John’s own first-round pick. He played six games with the Armada - recording a goal and three assists – and then was hit with a knee injury that has kept him out of game action since January 13.
Then the Armada complained to the league saying that the Sea Dogs traded damaged goods. A hearing was held forever ago. Yada Yada Yada. It’s mid-April and we still don’t know what’s going on with any of this.
The Armada have had a fairly easy ride through the playoffs so far, beading the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in five games in the first-round and then swept the Val-d’Or Foreurs in the quarter-finals. They have a big test this round, going up against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.
The Armada-Drakkar semi-final series begins Friday night.
