Currie Traded

Goaltender David Currie was traded by the Johnstown Chiefs to the Victoria Salmon Kings today [url=http://www.echl.com/cgi-bin/mpublic.cgi?action=show_news&cat=1&id=6048]according to ECHL.com.[/url] The move coincides with Jonathan Boutin's reassignment to the Chiefs and clears the way for an all-Lightning property tandem of Boutin and Morgan Cey.

Koshechkin Does It Again

The legend continues to grow. Vasily Koshechkin pitched his seventh shutout in his last eleven starts today defeating Novokuznetsk 2-0. Koshechkin improved his record to 8-3-1 on the season. This shutout was in many ways more impressive than his previous six because Koshechkin now plays behind a gutted Lada team that dumped 3/4 of its payroll at the November trade period. For the Lokomotiv, Anton But scored his 8th goal of the season as Yaroslavl pummelled Chekhov 8-1. Dimitry Kazionov went scoreless in his first game for Moscow Dynamo as they defeated Molot Perm 2-0.

Polushin Scores In Severstal's First Game Back From Karjala Break

In yesterday's lone Superleague game, Alexander Polushin scored a first period game winning goal as Cherepovets topped SKA St. Petersburg 2-1. The goal was Polushin's 7th of the season.

Two Falcons on their way to Johnstown

According to a Springfield Falcons press release, the Falcons are reassigning defenseman Gerard Dicaire and goaltender Jonathan Boutin to ECHL Johnstown. Boutin's demotion is more a case of numbers than it is a reflection of his play.

Smolenak Returns to Kingston Lineup after Suspension

After missing two games, Radek Smolenak returned to the ice for Kingston against the Windsor Spitfires Thursday night. Smolenak had an assist for the Frontenacs, but it wasn't enough as they fell 3-2 in overtime. Smolenak was suspended for two games, punishment for a checking-from-behind major he earned last week. He was the only Lightning CHL prospect in action on this night.
