CANTLON’S CORNER: A THANKSGIVING APPETIZER

ROSTER CHANGES 

The weekly Hartford Wolf Pack roster cha-cha-cha continues. Back to the Gwinnett Gladiators (ECHL) heads good guy defenseman, Bretton Stamler, while the Wolf Pack’s ECHL affiliates, the Greenville Road Warriors receive forward Chris McCarthy. Making the return trip back to Hartford from Greenville is defenseman Steve Spinnell who’s played in three games for the Wolf Pack. Spinnell has no points and 11 PM  and a minus-1.

One change to this lineup change is that Bretton Stamler’s life has taken a right turn after he signed a deal with the Hamburg Freezers of the German DEL for the remainder of the season because of an injury to their veteran, former Philadelphia Phantom Frederik Cabana.

According to a team press release, the recommendation to Sports Director and one-time New Haven Nighthawk, Stephane Richer, was from former Hartford and Greenville teammate and current Freezer defenseman Sam Klassen.
