Trenton went 0-1-1 last year in the Sunshine State (both against FLA). This will be the first appearance for Trenton in the state-of-the-art Amway Center (home to the NBA\'s Orlando Magic), in Orlando.
Shuffle Up And Deal
Titans not standing pat as they look to get into the Eastern Conference playoff mix
If anyone thinks the Titans are content with their status, they haven\'t been checking the Transaction Wire, because it has burned up over the last couple days.
First, returning from the AHL are Eric Baier (PROV) and Brian Haczyk (ALB). Baier brings defensive stability and Haczyk scored in his last return to Trenton.
Next comes rookie goalie Cal Heeter, send down from AHL affiliate Adirondack. An Ohio State grad, he had a very solid 7-11-1 record with a 2.97 GA and .906 Sv% in 20 games. Heeter defeated Reading in a preseason game on October 6 (6-2).
Jesse Todd comes over from SF. The forward saw time in Hamilton (AHL) last year and REA/SF this season.
Defenseman Chad Langlais comes to Trenton from Arizona (CHL), where he also played for Dayton and Evansville last year. Finally, sparkplug forward Justin Taylor was sent to Idaho to complete the Jacob Cepis trade.
So cut the cards - there\'s a new deck and it\'s time to play!
