Hot on the heels of the Sea Wolves first win streak of the season, coinciding with the assignment of Ryan Munce and the return of Stan Lascek from pre-season injury, perhaps it's time to review the Lightning ECHL stats thus far:
F Radek Smolenak: 15gp; 5-7-12; -2; 10 PIM; 2 PPG
F Stanislav Lascek: 2gp; 2-3-5; +3; 2 PIM
F Marek Kvapil: 6gp; 1-3-4; -1; 7 PIM
D Jay Rosehill: 2gp; 0-0-0; Even; 6 PIM
F Zbynek Hrdel: 5gp; 0-0-0; -2; 0 PIM
F Brandon Elliott: 11gp; 0-0-0; -2; 32 PIM
G Ryan Munce: 2gp; 125 mins; 2-0-0-0; 2.88 GAA; 0.934 SV%
Taking Munce's spot on Norfolk's roster will be goaltender Karl Goehring, who has been signed to a PTO contract. Goehring, 29, was 0-1-0 in 2 games this season for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with a 2.11 GAA and .909 save percentage. The 5'8" 160 lbs goaltender spent last season with Milwaukee of the AHL where he compiled a 22-15-4 record with a 2.69 GAA and .908 save percentage. Goehring, born in Apple Valley, MN, played his college hockey with North Dakota.
The Admirals also released forward Mark Rooneem from his PTO contract.
Tough to win on 50% of an effort.
