Former Eagles in the AHL

While the NHL lockout continues with no end in sight, the puck dropped in the AHL Friday night and there are plenty of former Eagles on rosters throughout the league:

Abbotsford Heat (CGY): Krys Kolanos

Albany Devils (NJD): Joe Whitney

Connecticut Whale (NYR): Chris Kreider

Hershey Bears (WSH): Barry Almeida

Lake Erie Monsters (COL): Paul Carey

Rockford IceHogs (CHI): Jimmy Hayes, Ben Smith

Springfield Falcons (CLB): Cam Atkinson

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (PIT): Brian Dumoulin, Benn Ferriero, Brian Gibbons, Philip Samuelsson, Carl Sneep

Worcester Sharks (SJ): Nick Petrecki

The Penguins organization added to their already sizable stable of former Eagles by landing Brian Dumoulin in draft day trade with Carolina and signing Ferriero as a free agent after three years with San Jose. Dumoulin should make his professional debut tonight after being scratched by Charlotte for all three games after he signed last spring.

Thanks to the lockout, players on entry level or two way contracts who would otherwise be in the NHL - Kolanos, Kreider, Hayes, Smith, Atkinson, and Ferriero amongst them - are playing down a level. The resulting roster crunch has cost two former Eagles their roster spots, as Providence sent Tommy Cross (South Carolina) and Charlotte sent John Muse (Florida) to the ECHL.

Action got underway with seven games last night, with Kreider registering an assist, two shots, two penalty minutes and a minus one in his first regular season pro game. Paul Carey registered three shots and was otherwise held off the score sheet in just his third pro game. Petrecki was a minus three with one shot and two penalty minutes as he began his fourth pro season, while Kolanos was a scratch. Fourteen additional games are on the schedule for today.
