Former Aces winger Howes summoned to AHL

Posted on January 3, 2013 

Figured this had to happen at some point, given former Alaska Aces winger Scott Howes' sizzling start in the Central Hockey League this season -- he has been signed to a tryout agreement by AHL Springfield.

Howes, the Kelly Cup MVP in 2011 on the Aces' run to the title, leads the CHL in goals and power-play goals, and is tied for sixth in points. In 22 games for the Allen Americans, Howes has racked 21-14--35 totals and a +9 rating, with 10 power-play strikes.

Howes played most of last season in the A, going 11-11--22 and +4 in 49 games with Bridgeport.

How's this for coincidence? Springfield's next game is Friday, when it entertains Bridgeport.
