Well this didn’t take too long. After being sent down to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL just a little over a week ago – Joshua Shalla has been recalled to the Ads.

There was never any counter move made when he was initially sent down. So I’m pretty doubtful there will be one made with his recall this afternoon.
With his move down to Cincinnati Shalla missed out on the Ads three-in-three last week and played in three games for the Cyclones. In those three games Shalla produced one goal off of eight shots with a +2 plus/minus. With the Ads so far he has suited up for sixteen games and has two goals and two assists with a -8 plus/minus.
I wasn’t all that sure with his move down last week if this would be a long or short term move. Today we get the answer. Perhaps this was all a matter to get him better looks on the ice while getting more playing minutes than he was earning on the lower forward lines with the Ads.
What do you make of this move? Considering the Cyclones have a game tonight, shouldn’t Shalla have stayed in Cincinnati for at least one more game?
