Yesterday was a busy day for the Whale, as they made six moves to fill out the roster in time for their Calder Cup run. The Whale called up forwards Jason Wilson, Danny Hobbs, and Jordie Johnston, and goaltender Scott Stajcer from the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL. In addition, the Whale signed forward Michael Kantor and defenseman Charlie Dodero to ATOs from Sudbury in the OHL.
All six will be with the Whale for their next game on Friday.
Assistant GM (and GM of the Connecticut Whale) Jim Schoenfeld continues to be active, as he has signed another player to an AHL contract. This time, Schoenfeld has inked undrafted forward Jordie Johnston out of Ferris State.
Johnston, who stand at 6’0 and 180 lbs, finished his four-year career at Ferris State with a career line of 30-27-57 with 102 PIMs in 136 games. Following graduation, Johnston played three games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, but was not given a contract.
