Cavosie Comes Back to Albany

By Phil Janack

Schenectady Daily Gazette, February 25, 2008

Cohoes native Marc Cavosie is joining the River Rats.

Cavosie will be at practice Tuesday morning at RPI's Houston Field House, where he starred for three seasons from 1999-2002.

The 26-year-old forward, who also played at Albany Academy, is in on tryout from the Reading Royals. He split this season between ECHL teams in Reading and Columbia.

Cavosie had 10 goals and 24 points and was plus-9 in 24 games since joining Reading. He is 12-18-30 and plus-1 in 41 games overall.

Drafted by Minnesota 99th overall in 2000, Cavosie turned pro following his junior season at RPI and won a Calder Cup as a rookie with the Houston Aeros, then captained by ex-Rat Sylvain Cloutier. That summer, Cavosie's father, Tom, died in a boating accident while fishing off the coast of Newfoundland.

Last season, Cavosie played 27 games in Sweden before returning to North America and resuming his degree at RPI. He last played in the AHL with Philadelphia in 2005-06.

Cavosie's arrivial coincides with the absence of second-year forward Nicolas Blanchard, who was injured in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win at Bridgeport. Coach Tom Rowe said Blanchard will miss about a week.

Albany hosts Binghamton Wednesday night at 7.
