Blain Recalled by AHL's Wolves
Boise, ID (11/26/12) - Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced Monday that defenseman Jeremie Blain has been recalled from the Idaho Steelheads by the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.
The American Hockey League (AHL) is the highest level of minor-league hockey in North America.
Blain, 20, is in his first professional season after spending four seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He was signed to an AHL deal by the Wolves and assigned to Idaho in October. In 16 games, Blain has 14 points (four goals, ten assists), good for seventh in the entire ECHL for scoring among rookies as well as defenseman. He was also runner-up for the ECHL Rookie of the Month award in October.
The Steelheads are home this week for three games against the Colorado Eagles. Wednesday is Dollar Beer Night presented by Bud Light. Friday is the kickoff to the "Pink in the Rink" festivities at CenturyLink Arena and Saturday is the annual "Teddy Bear Toss" to benefit Toys for Tots. Tickets for any of the games are available online at IdahoSteelheads.com or by calling 208.331.8497.
Partial-season ticket plans are still available, including the 20-voucher "Flex Plan," starting at just $249 per plan. Fans receive 20 vouchers redeemable at their convenience for any game during the regular season with lower-bowl and upper-bowl options. Contact the Steelheads front office at 383-0080 for more information or visit the team's website at www.idahosteelheads.com .
