With the news yesterday that Patrick Cehlin would be reassigned there was some curiosity on my part as to what the counter move would be. Late this afternoon we have the answer. The Milwaukee Admirals have assigned defenseman Jonathan Diaby and loaned Joe Pendenza to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.
Diaby has been often rotated on defense this season with Jimmy Oligny and has played in 10 games, recorded no points on offense, has a plus/minus rating of -1, and racked up 41 penalty minutes with 3 fights to his name.
Pendenza has also been a player that has rotated often in the forward group with him tending to swap places every now and then with Frédérick Gaudreau. This season Pendenza has played in 13 games, scored 3 goals, has a plus/minus rating of +6, and only 2 penalty minutes.
Thoughts on today’s roster moves? Surprised to see one or both of these two to go down to the ECHL?
