BRAMPTON, ONTARIO— The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, announce today multiple transactions prior to tonight’s Hockey Day In Brampton clash against the Toledo Walleye.
Power forward Connor Crisp and two-way defenseman Reggie Traccitto are returning to the Beast lineup as a result of being reassigned by the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League.
Crisp, 22, is a point-per-game player in six games with the Beast as he has racked up four goals and two assists for six points. The Alliston, Ontario native attained these points playing a game that blends size, skill and speed.
Traccitto, 27, has been one of the most effective defenseman for the Beast in all zones this season. He shines in the defensive zone with his strong positioning, active stick and well-timed hits and he is a catalyst in the attacking zone with his smooth passing and dynamic shot. He has netted 11 points in 31 games this season.
In a separate transaction, Beast defenseman Jordan Henry has signed a Professional Tryout (PTO) contract with the AHL’s Rochester Americans. The 30-year-old native of Milo, Alberta will look to supply the strong leadership and solid offensive game he has brought to the Beast. He has notched three goals and 10 assists for 13 points in 35 games this season.
Henry is not a newcomer to the Americans organization as he played for the club from 2008 to 2010. In 194 previous games with Rochester, Henry notched a total of 20 goals, 35 assists, 55 points and 288 penalty minutes.
Puck drop for tonight’s game is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. The game is being preceded with a ceremony to recognize starting goaltender Zachary Fucale’s Spengler Cup heroics and the impressive achievement by the Brampton Minor Midget AAA 45's to earn placement in the top 10 of the OHL Cup rankings.
