Announced Sunday morning by the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins was the following roster moves…
Forwards Derek Army, Garrett Meurs and Nick Sorkin; defensemen Danny Fick, Dan Milan and Kevin Schulze; as well as goaltenders Leland Irving and Adam Morrison were all released from their tryout agreements with the Penguins. Army, Meurs, Fick, Schulze and Sorkin will report to the Penguins’ ECHL affiliate, the Wheeling Nailers.
Some of the names competing for jobs remaining in camp are Reid Gardiner, Cody Wydo, Jarrett Burton, Miloš Bubela, Christian Hilbrich, Gage Quinney, Adam Krause, Michael Webster and Ryan Segalla. You can probably safely say they will play this afternoon in Hershey.
In goal, Doug Carr looks to have won the backup job by default. I say that because Leland Irving most likely has a job lined up elsewhere. Carr is signed to an ECHL deal with Wheeling, so let Irving sow his seeds at his new job and let Carr back up and get AHL experience while Tristan Jarry remains up with Pittsburgh.
Wilkes-Barre plays once next weekend, home against Hartford then not again until October 21 against Springfield. A lot can happen between now and then.
More later after the final preseason game in Hershey.
