Coleman recalled to Springfield; Boutin has minor injury

Johnstown, PA (February 5, 2007) – The Johnstown Chiefs on Monday announced that goaltender Gerald Coleman has been recalled to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

Bolt Prospects has learned from sources within the Lightning organization that the reason for the recall is that Jonathan Boutin is not 100% healthy and may not be able to dress for the Falcon's next game.

ECHL Game Day 1/28: Bombers at Chiefs

Unfortunately, it looks like things might be getting a little worse in Johnstown before they get better.

DAY-3
JHN-1

Gerald Coleman stopped 29 of 32 shots faced in his first start since returning from a groin injury. Randy Rowe scored the lone Chiefs goal off an assist from Jean Desrochers. Rowe was named the third star of the game.

One small editorial: where is Zbynek Hrdel? Other than the side of a milk carton? Hrdel is scoreless in his last 5 games and has just 1 assist in his last 7 at a level of hockey where he should be a consistent scoring line player. Hrdel has another year on his contract after this one, but he's quietly playing himself out of the organization, in my opinion, unless he starts to pick it up.

First Period
DAY Herneisen, (7) (Tifu, Maiser), 14:35
