The Admirals made a roster move today, calling up Ben Ryan from Cincy, and sending Joel Champagne to the Cyclones.
Ryan was injured during training camp, and has spent the season so far in Cincy getting back into hockey shape. In 3 games, he had two goals and an assist.
Champagne started out with the Admirals, and received praise from the coaches early on for playing a good North-South game. But Champagne has seen his ice time dwindle, and often would become a victim of a shortened bench in-game.
With Ryan Thang gone, these moves still leave the Admirals with just 11 forwards on the roster. But they’ve got until Friday to get that worked out.
