Aces get Connolly back, also get D-man from Abbotsford

Posted by DOYLE WOODY, on December 13, 2013 

The Alaska Aces have received reinforcements ahead of tonight's game at Idaho.

The AHL's Abbotsford Heat assigned winger Brendan Connolly back to the Aces. He owns 6-11--17 totals in 18 games and should help a power play that has failed on 26 straight occasions in the last five-plus games.

What could really help as much or more is the arrival to the Aces of defenseman Drew MacKenzie from Abbotsford -- the Aces currently are young and not particularly deep on the blue line. MacKenzie owns 1-4--5 totals in 16 games with Abbotsford.

Last season as a rookie, MacKenzie went 1-8--9 in 27 games for Abbotsford and 5-9--14 in 25 games for ECHL Utah.

In four seasons of college pucks at Vermont, MacKenzie went 17-47--64 in 133 games.
