BRAMPTON, ONTARIO –The Brampton Beast, ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens, announce today multiple transactions ahead of this weekend’s pair of games against the Kalamazoo Wings on Friday and the Fort Wayne Komets on Sunday afternoon.


Talented offensive defenceman Justin Baker is returning to the Beast lineup after earning a callup to the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League (AHL) on Oct 30.
