The Hartford Wolfpack have cut 14 players from AHL camp. They have assigned four players to the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors (these are guys that are signed to ELC’s by the Rangers), they loaned another four to Greenville (AHL contracts, sent to ECHL), released another three from tryouts (and joining Greenville), and outright released another three. From the press release:
Loaned by the Wolf Pack to Greenville (ECHL):
Goaltenders (1): Jeff Malcolm
Defensemen (2): Charlie Dodero, Mike Marcou
Forwards (1): Andrew Rowe
Released from training camp tryouts and joining Greenville (ECHL):
Forwards (3): Sean Ambrosie, Brandon Hynes, Matt Kirzinger
Released from training camp tryouts:
Defensemen (2): Sam Klassen, Jason Lepine
Forwards (1): Scott Arnold
The Pack now have 24 players remaining in camp:
Forwards (14): Ryan Bourque, Andrew Carroll, Brodie Dupont, Micheal Haley, Marek Hrivik, Kyle Jean, Michael Kantor, Chris Kreider, Danny Kristo, Oscar Lindberg, Brandon Mashinter, Shawn O’Donnell, Darroll Powe, Andrew Yogan
The biggest surprise is seeing Michael St. Croix (I’m assuming that’s who Chris St. Croix is on the press release) sent to the ECHL. I also would have liked to see Sam Noreau on the AHL team, but he needs some help with skating.
The Pack will probably add two more players (JT Miller, Jesper Fast) once the Rangers are fully healthy, meaning there may be more moves coming.
