Nailers add defensemen to training camp

Miami of Ohio standout defenseman Mitch Ganzak was added to the Nailers training camp today.

Ganzak played two games for the Manitoba Moose last season and recorded an assist for the Moose, after completing his collegiate career.

Former Wheeling Nailer, Tobias Holm was also recently added to the training camp roster. Holm last played stateside in 1998-1999 and played for various teams in Europe since leaving the Nailers.

The Baby Pens are expected to make 2-3 more cuts when the ECHL season starts. They are currently carrying 15 forwards J.M. Daoust, Mark Letestu and Nick Johnson appear to be on the hot seat while Adam Henrich has a very outside chance of reassignment. The cuts wouldn't be because they cannot hang in the AHL, but moreso to give them more playing time to develop.

David Brown was recalled while Wilkes-Barre/Scranton starting goalie John Curry is nursing swollen ankles he is expected to return to Wheeling when Curry is ready to go.

Forwards Aaron Grynol, Anthony Attanucci, Travis Van Dyn Hoven and Matt Armstrong have been cut. Also being released were defenseman Arthur Kiyaga, Tom Collingham and Mike Gooch.

I saw some "push" in our boys in fridays pre-season game with J-town, something we had little of last year. If injuries don't plague the "big" teams we may be o.k.

Should've given Grynol a better look. He hasn't played in 5 seasons but given time he has the talent to crack any AHL lineup let alone ECHL
