Whale Send Yogan, Wilson to Greenville

Hasn’t exactly been a normal year for roster movement, what with no callups to the locked-out NHL, but the Whale did have two transactions today, moving forwards Andrew Yogan and Jason Wilson to their Greenville affiliate in the ECHL.

Jason Wilson

Both guys have been hurt—Yogan had missed the last four games after getting dinged up November 16 against Portland and Wilson had yet to play this season, after undergoing offseason surgery.

The departure of Yogan, who had one goal in 11 games on the year, seems to indicate that Shayne Wiebe has grabbed hold of the 13th forward spot, at least for now.  Wiebe came up from Greenville when Yogan was hurt, and played one game before sitting out the last three.  He is the Whale’s only extra healthy body at this point, with Jyri Niemi still off the ice from the effects of the hit he took from Bridgeport’s Colin McDonald November 11.  Dylan McIlrath has started skating after practices but has yet to take part in a full practice.

A tough three-in-three this weekend…a trip to Providence on Friday and then a pair of first-place teams, Syracuse and Springfield, coming to the XL Center Saturday and Sunday.

You can watch a preview of the two home games here.
