JACKSONVILLE, FL - The Jacksonville Icemen announced Thursday that the Cleveland Monsters of the American Hockey League (AHL) have assigned forward Derek Barach to the Icemen. In addition, the Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL) have reassigned defenseman Michael Prapavessis from Jacksonville to AHL Cleveland.
Barach, 24, joins the Icemen after making two appearances with Cleveland this season. The 5-8, 165-pound forward posted 11 points (7g, 4a) in just 15 games played with the Monsters last spring following his senior season at Mercyhurst College.
