The Alaska Aces released rookie defenseman Ben Parker on Friday, but they likely will see him again soon. The Las Vegas Wranglers claimed Parker today, and they entertain the Aces in a three-game set later this week.
In other Aces' news, defenseman Zach Davies, up with AHL Abbotsford, today scored his first AHL goal in a 3-2 loss at Toronto. For what it's worth, all five goals in the game came on the power play. Former Aces goaltender Joni Ortio, back in the A after considerable time with NHL Calgary, stopped 26 of 29 shots. Erstwhile Aces goalie Olivier Roy served as his backup, and Abbotsford today released goalie Aaron Dell, who will presumably rejoin ECHL Utah.
Remember, Aces play at Stockton today, 3 p.m. Alaska time.
