Here's a Quarter, Call Somebody Up to the AHL

- Former Wheeling Nailer and current Youngstown SteelHound goalie, Andy Franck has been called up to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League today.

Franck, 26, is 11-2-1 in 14 games for the SteelHounds and he leads the Central Hockey League in wins. Earlier this season Franck won seven straight games to lead the Hounds to the best start in franchise history.

In two years with the Nailers Franck compiled a 60-41-9 record with eight shutouts and was named to the ECHL All Rookie and All Star teams in his first season.

- Yesterday, Wheeling Nailer Adam Henrich has been signed to a professional tryout contract by the Norfolk Admirals. Henrich has been the top offensive producer for the Nailers this season as well as one of the top producers in the entire ECHL despite being suspended for the first three games of the year. Henrich has accounted for 10 goals and 10 assists in just 12 games.

- David Laliberte has been recalled for a second time this season to the Philadelphia Phantoms and has already played in two games with the Nailers AHL affiliate this season.

I know Hellemeyer was "waived" today- was he only intending to play last night's game, or is he thinking about coming back?
