Good news for Alaska Aces winger Evan Trupp of Anchorage, who the AHL's Abbotsford Heat, Alaska's affiliate, have signed to a standard AHL deal.
Trupp sticks with the Aces on loan and will be in the lineup tonight against Stockton.
The move likely gives the Aces salary-cap relief. A player under AHL contract only costs an ECHL club $525 a week against the salary cap. Gonna go out on a stout limb and say Trupp's ECHL deal was for more than $525 a week, so the Aces make out on that front.
Trupp in a recent stint with the Heat, his first AHL gig, went well. He put up 1-3--4 totals in seven games. For the Aces, he's gone 10-20--30 in 33 games.
