A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
In advance of opening night this Saturday, the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins have announced that they have signed Ryan Segalla to an AHL contract and in the same press release send him and six other players to the Wheeling Nailers.
They are forwards Miloš Bubela, Gage Quinney and Cody Wydo, as well as defenseman Brett Stern, Michael Webster and Christian Hilbrich.
Here is a look at the roster, consisting of 24 players, as of October 10.
Highlighting, it looks like Patrick McGrath, Reid Gardiner and Adam Krause have all tentatively made the team. Gardiner is still on a professional tryout agreement, which I believe is good for 25 games, so what Coal Street may be thinking is see how he does in those 25 games before committing to him full time by way of a standard players contract.
I did call Gardiner a diamond in the rough type player based off of his production last season with Prince Albert of the WHL.
