According to the Johnstown [i]Tribune-Democrat[/i], forward Randy Rowe will decide on his immediate future
this week. Rowe is in talks with as many as five NHL teams, including the Lightning. Rowe was under contract with Springfield last year, though he spent all but four games in Johnstown where, despite contending with an abdomen problem and a near season-ending neck injury, he still scored 28 goals and 43 points in 45 regular-season games with the Chiefs. He also had two goals and four points in five playoff games.
â€œIâ€™m definitely thinking about Tampa-Springfield-Johnstown again,â€ Rowe told the [i]Tribune-Democrat[/i].
â€œThere was just a lot of talking with teams,â€ he said. â€œIâ€™m not getting any younger. I just want to make sure Iâ€™m in the right place to get called up to an AHL team. Camps are starting Saturday and Sunday in the AHL. Itâ€™s one of those things that itâ€™s your future and youâ€™ve got to make sure you make the right decision.â€
