Goalie Swap

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have switched around their goalies as they sent John Curry to Wheeling and called up Dave Brown to take his place.

WBS picked kind of an odd time to take Brown, as he probably has played his two worst games of his brief professional career, but none-the-less it's a good thing for Brown to experience life int he AHL and to get some time facing higher caliber players.

Curry, assigned to the Nailers in the preseason, was sent by the parent Penguins to the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL to get some playing time. While playing for the Wranglers Curry put up impressive numbers going 4-1 with a 2.81 GAA and a .905 save percentage earning him his first AHL call-up.

Curry has played in 3 AHL games for the Penguins going 1-2-0 with a 2.66 GAA and a .901 save percentage.

Curry had also played for the United States National Team this season at the Deutschland Cup in Hannover, Germany, posting a 1-0-1 record with a 1.92 goals against average and a .946 save percentage.

The Nailers then sent goalie Terry Denike to Reading for "undisclosed considerations."
