Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned forwards Josh Nicholls to the Wolf Pack from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Nicholls, a rookie out of the Western Hockey League, played four AHL games during a previous stint with the Wolf Pack, going scoreless with six shots on goal. In 51 games with Greenville, the former Saskatoon Blade has 14 goals and 18 assists for 32 points, good for fifth on the team, along with 14 penalty minutes. Nicholls is currently riding a ten-game ECHL point-scoring streak, with seven goals and seven assists for 14 points over that span.
Nicholls, who was a seventh-round selection (182nd overall) by Toronto in the 2010 NHL Draft, was signed as a free agent by the Rangers March 5, 2013.
The Wolf Pack travel to Albany tonight for a Northeast Division game, taking on the Devils at 5:00 PM at the Times Union Center. All of the action of that battle can be heard live on Fox Sports Radio 1410, and on-line at www.foxsportsradio1410.com and iHeartRadio. Video streaming is available at www.ahllive.com.
The Wolf Pack’s next home game is this Wednesday, March 19, a 7:00 PM contest against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. That's a Wolf Pack "Winning Wednesday", meaning that if the Wolf Pack win, each fan can get a free ticket to the next Wolf Pack home game, which is Friday night, March 21 against the St. John’s IceCaps.
