A Springfield Falcons press release was issued stating Adam Henrich and Zbynek Hrdel have been reassigned to ECHL Johnstown. Henrich was in the Falcons lineup for their season opening, 3-2 win, over the Hartford Wolf Pack on Saturday, October 7, but didnâ€™t register a point. The 6-foot-4, 238-pound native of Thornhill, Ontario split the 2005-06 season between Springfield and Johnstown recording 18 goals and 26 assists for 44 points in 63 games shared between the Falcons and Chiefs. Hrdel also was in the Falconsâ€™ opening night lineup, but was a healthy scratch for both games against the Norfolk Admirals this past weekend. Hrdel also shared time in both Springfield and Johnstown last season collecting 11 goals and 15 assists for 26 points in 61 total games split between the Falcons and Chiefs.

ECHL.com is reporting the Chiefs [url=http://echl.com/cgi-bin/mpublic.cgi?action=show_news&cat=1&id=8865]have cut tryout forward Gary Klapkowski today.[/url] Tryout defenseman Ian MacLean still remains in Chiefs camp, but may be just a placeholder until Brady Greco can return from his shoulder injury.

Ouch. SPR-1 NOR-8 Sean Burke allowed 5 goals on 14 shots for the loss before being lifted for [url=karri-ramo]Karri Ramo[/url] who allowed 3 on 17. Jared Aulin scored the lone Falcons goal. [url=marek-kvapil]Marek Kvapil[/url] was a scratch for Springfield. It should also be noted Ramo got multiple penalties for leaving the crease and initiating a fight with Admirals goaltender Sebastien Caron in a bloody and fight marred third period. Game sheet from [url=http://stats.theahl.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=1002266]TheAHL.com.[/url] Following this disasterous effort I expect some changes might be made before next weekend's batch of game. It was already a likelihood that some of the lower line/healthy scratches like [url=andre-deveaux]Deveaux[/url], [url=adam-henrich]Henrich[/url] or [url=zbynek-hrdel]Hrdel[/url] might be on their way down for Johnstown's opener, but given the strong play of [url=stanislav-lascek]Lascek[/url] and [url=radek-smolenak]Smolenak[/url] in the Chiefs' preseason games this weekend, now might be the time for Springfield to entertain more wholesale changes.
