HARTFORD, October 22, 2014: Hartford Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Wolf Pack has released forward Richard Nejezchleb from his Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement. Nejezchleb will return to his Junior team, the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League.
The 20-year-old Nejezchleb, who was a fifth-round selection (122nd overall) by the parent New York Rangers in the 2014 NHL Draft, sat out the Wolf Pack’s first four games of the season due to injury. The Prague, Czech Republic native has skated for the Wheat Kings for the past two seasons.
The Wolf Pack are next in action this Friday night, October 24, hosting the Albany Devils at the XL Center in a 7:00 PM game. Once again this season every Friday night home game features $1 hot dogs and $2 beers through the start of the second period. Tickets for all 2014-15 Wolf Pack home games are now on sale at the XL Center ticket office, on-line at www.hartfordwolfpack.com and by phone at (877) 522-8499. Wolf Pack tickets start as low as $12 for youth 12 years old or younger.
