Packard/Kelly Recalled to Springfield
The domino effect of Evgeny Artyukhin and Nick Tarnasky's callup to Tampa reached Johnstown as winger Dennis Packard has been recalled to Springfield of the AHL. Packard, who had a goal and the clinching shootout talley in Johnstown's last exhibition game, will be available when the Falcons play Hartford at home Friday night.
Also recalled to Springfield was C Justin Kelly. Kelly had 65 points in 57 games last season with Adirondack of the UHL.
Mastovich says that Kelly is currently injured. It will be interesting to see Springfield's lineup this weekend.
