February 26, 2008 - ECHL (ECHL) - Reading Royals
Reading, PA - The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League and the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, today announced that forward Marc Cavosie has been loaned to the Albany River Rats of the AHL. In separate transactions, the Royals also activated forward Malcolm MacMillan from the injured reserve, and he was then recalled to the Hershey Bears of the AHL.
For Cavosie, a sixth year pro who hails from Albany, New York, this marks his first call up to the AHL this season. Cavosie, a fourth round pick of the Minnesota Wild in 2000, was acquired by the Royals in a trade with the Columbia Inferno on November 28, 2007. Since that time, Cavosie has scored ten goals and assisted on twenty-four others in twenty-four games with the Royals. He is currently riding a four game point streak (1g-7a=8pts), and in his last eleven games with the Royals, Cavosie has registered sixteen points (6g-10a=16pts). In four seasons with the Houston Aeros and Philadelphia Phantoms in the AHL, Cavosie has scored 26 goals and assisted on 73 others (99 points) in 253 AHL games. Cavosie joins Royals teammate Chris Blight, who is also with the River Rats at this time.
For MacMillan, a fifth year pro from Thunder Bay, Ontario, this marks his third stint with Hershey this season. MacMillan started the season in Hershey and picked up an assist in the Bears first game of the year before being re-assigned to Reading. In his initial stint with the Royals this year, MacMillan played in twenty-two games, scoring five goals, assisting on ten others and picking up 89 penalty minutes. He was then recalled to Hershey where he played in one game, during which he scored the game winning goal but also sustained an injury. MacMillan returned to action in Reading on January 27, where he played three more games prior to being re-injured on February 2 and was placed on the injured reserve.
The Royals return to action Wednesday night (February 27; 7:05 pm) at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, against the Johnstown Chiefs. The game night broadcast on Friday will begin at 6:35 pm with the pre-game warm-up show on ESPN Radio 1240 am in Ephrata, as well as on the internet through the Royals\' website, www.royalshockey.com. Streaming video is available on a pay per view basis through the B2 Networks.
