Fighting Saints Trade Youso to Odessa in NAHLFebruary 6, 2012 - United States Hockey League (USHL) Dubuque Fighting Saints
Youso skated in 24 games with the Fighting Saints, totaling 73 penalty minutes, but no points, in a physical role with the team. Fighting Saints Head Coach Jim Montgomery thanked Youso for his contributions with the Fighting Saints, and wished him the best going forward.
"Matt was a very good teammate. Our entire staff loved working with him; he has a Fighting Saints spirit and attitude," he said. "We had nine defensemen, we had to get down to eight, and we thought that he was the odd man out. We wish him all the best in Odessa. He's going to play a ton of hockey and develop as a student athlete."
The with the roster change deadline passing, Montgomery said that he, the coaching staff, and the players are all looking forward to the increased stability that will come in the final third of the season.
"With our roster now down to twenty-three, we have the players that we think will give us the best opportunity to defend our Clark Cup championship come playoff time," Montgomery added.
The Fighting Saints will play Wednesday night in Dubuque, hosting the Des Moines Buccaneers for the only time this regular season. The team will travel to play in Cedar Rapids on Friday, and return home to match up against the RoughRiders on Saturday night.
