Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

The Alaska Aces just reported a transaction that should give them a big boost: Winger Brendan Connolly is headed back to them from AHL Abbotsford.

The Aces, who play at Bakersfield tonight, said Connolly will rejoin them in time for three weekend games in Las Vegas -- that series starts Friday.

Connolly for Alaska has played left wing on the top line with center Nick Mazzolini and right wing Peter Sivak, and has delivered 20-26--46 totals and a +14 rating in 46 games. For Abbotsford, he has gone 1-1--2 and +2 in six games.
