Roster shakeup for the Wolf Pack
Saturday October 31st 2009, 4:03 pm

Following last night’s debacle against Hershey, and with Dane Byers and P.A. Parenteau staying in up in New York for at least the weekend, Wolf Pack General Manager Jim Schoenfeld has made a number of roster changes:

Reassigned by NY Rangers to Wolf Pack from Charlotte (ECHL):
Goaltender Matt Zaba (3 GP with Charlotte, 2-1-0, 3.58 GAA, 88.4% save percentage)
Forward Chris Chappell (3 GP with Charlotte, 0-1-1)

Recalled by Wolf Pack from loan to Charlotte (ECHL):
Forward Ryan Garlock (4 GP with Charlotte, 1-2-3)

Signed Professional Tryout (PTO) agreement with Wolf Pack:
Forward Derek Couture (4 GP with Charlotte, 0-5-5, 6 PIM)

Reassigned by NY Rangers from Wolf Pack to Charlotte (ECHL):
Goaltender Miika Wiikman (4 GP with Wolf Pack, 2-2-0, 3.27 GAA, 88.8% save percentage)
Forward Ryan Hillier (4 GP with Wolf Pack, 0-0-0, 2 PIM)

So when it all shakes out, Zaba, Chappell, Garlock and Couture — who was a late cut from training camp because the team just didn’t have room for him — end up in Hartford.  Hillier and Wiikman — who had actually been playing pretty well — end up in Charlotte.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t puzzled by the decision to send Wiikman to Charlotte.  It would appear he just doesn’t fit in the organizations plans, regardless of how he plays.

The Pack are back on the ice at home tonight against the Providence Bruins at 7:00pm.
