Minnesota Wild Reassigns Cody Almond To Houston

March 26, 2010 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Houston Aeros News Release

HOUSTON - Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has reassigned center Cody Almond to the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Almond, 20 (7/24/89), was recalled by the Wild for the second time this season yesterday and did not appear in last night's 4-3 overtime win at Philadelphia. He has recorded 18 points (7-11=18) including three power play goals and 77 penalty minutes (PIM) in 47 games with the Aeros in his rookie season. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound native of Calgary, Alberta, made his NHL debut Feb. 12 against the Atlanta Thrashers.

Almond was Minnesota's fifth-round pick (140th overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He helped lead the Kelowna Rockets to the 2009 Western Hockey League (WHL) championship, tying for second on the team with 33 goals.

The Aeros take the ice to kick off the season's final 3-in-3 tonight with a 7:35 p.m. tilt against the Lake Erie Monsters from Toyota Center. The club completes the stretch in Peoria with a pair of weekend games at Carver Arena. Watch the games live on or listen to Joe O'Donnell's call on 1070 AM-KNTH.
