Hart Returns From Bridgeport; Mole, Sixsmith Departs
West Valley City, Utah - Utah Grizzlies Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Kevin Colley announced today that defenseman Jordan Hart has returned to the Grizzlies from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and that goaltender Mike Mole and James Sixsmith have returned to Bridgeport.
The Grizzlies are proud to be the ECHL affiliate of the NHL's New York Islanders and their AHL affiliate in Bridgeport.
Hart returns from his first AHL call-up and has been away from the Grizzlies since February 5. He played in six games in Bridgeport.
Sixsmith, who returned to the Grizzlies Thursday after a month in the AHL with Milwaukee, heads to Bridgeport for the second time this year and the third time in his career.
Mole, travels to Bridgeport for the first time since training camp, and for the third-straight season. Last year, he was recalled to the Islanders on March 25, 2008. Robert Gherson, assigned yesterday by the AHL's Chicago Wolves, will start all three games for the Grizzlies this weekend.
Utah returns to action tonight and Saturday in Bakersfield with face-off both evenings scheduled for 8:00 p.m.
The Grizzlies return home Sunday at 5:05 p.m. when they will welcome back Idaho to the E-Center.
