Aces bolstered by return of Wrenn, signing of B.J. Crum

More additions for the Alaska Aces as they prepare to close a three-game road trip with a matinee at Las Vegas today.

Rookie defenseman William Wrenn, who had been loaned to AHL Worcester in his first promotion to that league, is back with the club. Also, former Aces defenseman B.J. Crum, who had been playing in the Southern Professional Hockey League.

The Aces still have two defensemen up in the AHL -- Kane Lafranchise at Oklahoma City and Corey Syvret at Toronto.

Speaking of Wrenn, the ECHL announced the participants in Tuesday's skills competition in Loveland, Colo,, where the All-Star Game is set for Wednesday. Wrenn will compete in the Hardest Shot and Breakaway Relay categories. The Aces say he'll head from Las Vegas to Colorado before returning home for a three-game series against San Francisco starting Friday.
