(RAPID CITY, SD) - The Rapid City Rush, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Arizona Coyotes, announced today that the Tucson Roadrunners, AHL affiliate of the Rush, have assigned rookie defenseman Ryker Killins ahead of tonight's finale against the Idaho Steelheads. The move marks the second Black Hills Chiropractic Roster Adjustment of the weekend.
Killins returned to Tucson for his second call-up of the season on Thursday, but didn't see action in Tucson's 3-2 shootout win over the Stockton Heat last night.
