Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

Alaska Aces rookie defenseman Zach Davies is headed to AHL Abbotsford for his first promotion to that league and defenseman Zach McKelvie is headed to the Aces for Abbotsford.

Davies owns 7-9--16 totals and a +6 rating for the Aces. McKelvie has played 10 games for Alaska this season -- no points and an even rating. McKelvie can also play forward, though he's been a D for Alaska.

The Aces also released forward Phillip Ischi of Kenai, who helped them out for a bit when they were thin up front.
