AHL Quick Fire
AHL/CCM Player of the Week
Grand Rapids Griffins’ goaltender Jared Comeau has been named the AHL/CCM player of the week. The goaltender was perfect in 2 games last week stopping all 66 shots against him. His feat came against the league’s best offence, the Manitoba Moose.
Coreau was also called-up this week after the Detroit Red Wings traded G Petr Mrazek to the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Perth, Ontario native was tied for third in wins in the AHL before his call up.
We have multiple trades to announce!

The New York Rangers have acquired from the Boston bruins, defenceman Rob O’Gara and a 3rd round pick for D Nick Holden. Holden will report to the Bruins and O’Gara is likely to join the Hartford Wolfpack for the rest of the season.
