The Adirondack Thunder have been busy the past 24 hours making a flurry of moves. They have added two more healthy defensemen while also trading one away, placing on reserve and one more on the IR. Let’s take an insight look at what has occurred over the last 24 hours.
Ryan Black Traded To Greenville
The Adirondack Thunder have traded defensemen Ryan Black to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits in exchange for future considerations. Black, who was acquired by the Thunder eight days ago, never appeared in any contests for the Thunder. Black was likely brought in to solidify some depth if needed due to injury. He was likely the odd man out due to “slight over-crowding” on the blue-line. The Thunder had 11 healthy defensemen when the day began.
Jeremy Groleau And Colby Sissons Re-Assigned To Thunder
The Binghampton Devils re-assigned defencemen Colby Sissons and Jermy Groleau to Adirondack. Sissons started the year with the Thunder and saw action in three games played in which he recorded one assist before being sent to the AHL. Sessions played in two games while with Binghampton where he failed to find the scoresheet. Groleau is making his first stint with the Thunder after playing in seven games with the Devils. He had eight shots and was a -3 over the course of those seven games played.
Defensemen Michael Sdao missed all three games during the Thunder road trip and was placed on the IR on Tuesday. Fellow Thunder defensemen Zach Borsoi was also placed on reserve on Tuesday. However, Sdao hasn’t played great in the six games he’s appeared in, failing to find the scoresheet over the course of those six games played.
Michael McNiven Named Goaltender Of The Week
The ECHL announced earlier on Tuesday that Michael McNiven was named goaltender of the week. McNiven appeared in two games last week while stopping all 52 shots he faced during those games. He currently has a 108 minute shutout streak going. McNiven beat out Thomas Sholl of the Idaho Steelheads who was the runner-up for the award. Sholl posted a 2-0 record with a 0.98 goals-against average and .956 save percentage.
