Hrdel Returned to Johnstown

The Falcons have also announced that they have returned winger Zbynek Hrdel to Johnstown of the ECHL. Hrdel was recalled from the Chiefs when a rash of injuries hit the Falcons with Justin Keller out with a high ankle sprain, Randy Rowe out with a bad lower back and Norm Milley shelved with a broken jaw. The move likely signals that Keller or Rowe will be returning this week as Milley is projected to be out 2-4 weeks.

ECHL Game Day 1/7: Chiefs at Stingrays

7-2 seems like a popular score.

JHN-2
SC-7

Morgan Cey stopped 38 of 45 in the loss. Eric Przepiroka and Andre Deveaux had the Chiefs goals. Helpers went to Jean Desrochers, Ian MacLean, Adam Henrich and Andrew Martens.

Needless to say, no minor pro player is getting Prospect of the Week after this weekend.

ECHL Game Night 1/6: Chiefs at Lynx

The Midterm Evaluation rolls on as the Chiefs roll into Augusta, Ga and the James Brown Arena as Johnstown tries to prove "they've got soul and they're super bad" and Augusta is just "talkin' loud and saying nothing." Bolt Prospects is live blogging the game via the B2 Networks feed and will post game updates during the intermissions.

ECHL Game Night 1/5: Chiefs at Gladiators

Morgan Cey had to face 70 shots tonight between regulation, overtime and the shootout. 70.

JHN-3
GWT-4 (SO)

Morgan Cey stopped 59 of 62 shots faced in overtime and regulation before allowing 2 of 8 penalty shot chances to take the shootout loss. Have mercy. Andre Deveaux led the Falcons with 2 goals and 1 assist while Radek Smolenak had 1 goal and 2 assists. Adam Henrich, Geoff Waugh and PJ Atherton had individual assists. Gwinnett tallied the tying goal on the power play with under 2 minutes to go in regulation to force overtime. Naturally, Gwinnett, being the organization and county in Georgia with the utmost of humility and class (that's sarcasm) did not give a single star in the game to a Johnstown player even though Deveaux and Smolenak had the game high in points and Cey stopped 59 shots. Considering the media pool for Gwinnett includes a certain massive Thrashers homer/online editor for HF, I'm not surprised.

Some good news from the night: Gerald Coleman is on the bus for this swing through the south and was in uniform as Cey's backup.
