Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned forward Josh Nicholls from the Wolf Pack from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Nicholls, a rookie out of the Western Hockey League, had played two games with the Wolf Pack since being summoned from Greenville on Saturday. All told in AHL action on the year, Nicholls is scoreless with nine shots on goal in six games.
In 51 ECHL games with Greenville, Nicholls has 14 goals and 18 assists for 32 points, 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 are next in action tomorrow night, Wednesday, March 19, hosting the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in a 7:00 PM game at the XL Center. 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 this Friday night, March 21 against the St. John’s IceCaps.
