Davison Doing it All

Davison's previous scoring high came in the 2018-19 season when he posted 30 points (4G-26A) with the South Carolina Stingrays.

Roy Returns

Forward Hugo Roy was reassigned from the Belleville Senators in the AHL to the Gladiators last weekend. Roy skated in four games with the B-Sens and finished his AHL stint with a +1 rating. The call-up for the forward marked the second time in his career that he had skated in the AHL. Roy previously played three games with the Milwaukee Admirals in the 2018-19 season immediately after turning pro out of Canada's Concordia University.

Neiley gets Number One

Atlanta forward Eric Neiley recorded his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-1 loss to Greenville.
