Turkey Lurky Dee and Turky Lurky Duh

Fresh off my turkey coma and here to smack ya with some news.

Sean Collins finally got one for the belt Wednesday night with his first goal of the season which he took off the chin... literally.

Francois Leroux debuted for the Nailers Wednesday. He looked a little sluggish, but did play the body well in front of the net, pushing Dayton forwards around like no ones business.

Does anybody find it odd that there have only been two fights at home this season and we have Bissonnette, Boogaard, Patrick, Leroux and had Manson? And they both came the same day against Dayton on October 27th? That tells you something about the teams discipline this season. Actually Wheeling is currently the least penalized team in the North division with 253 total PIM.

Adam Henrich is currently sitting number ten in the ECHL with 9 goals.

David Brown has the sixth highest save percentage in league (.928).

Former Nailer Joe Guenther was traded by Elmira to Florida for Thanksgiving.

Rookie winger Aaron Clarke, who has been on the 30-day IR is scheduled to come off the IR and get his season started underway. While defenseman Todd Spencer has been placed on the 7-day IR.

The Nailers will have two of their homegames broadcast on the NHL Network.
December 22nd Cincinnati at Wheeling from the game on December 15th.
March 8th Trenton at Wheeling from the game on March 1st
