American Hockey League (Defencemen)

Patrick Wiercioch was recalled following the injury to Alex Edler and the suspension of Erik Gudbranson. He did not play after his call-up as Alex Biega filled in instead. As of Saturday afternoon, Wiercioch has been reassigned to Utica.

On the blueline, Philip Holm had a monster week, scoring once and assisting twice in two games. Evan McEneny also had an assist in the single game he played while Wiercioch scored before being called up.

After a quiet beginning to the season, Ashton Sautner was noticeable this past week, leading the Comets defencemen with six shots and four penalty minutes.

Though Chatfield did not have much to show for this week, he still leads the Comets blueline in plus-minus. McEneny is a team-worst minus-three.

Thatcher Demko gets both UTI wins

Netminder Thatcher Demko won both games for his team, stopping 57 of 59 shots. He recorded his first shutout of the season and now boasts a 1.34 GAA and a .953 Sv%.

Among AHL netminders with two or more full games played, Demko’s totals are only second to Casey DeSmith, the 26-year-old Pittsburgh Penguins prospect who is in his second AHL second after coming through the NCAA program.

The ECHL

The East Coast Hockey League began for Anton Cederholm and MacKenze Stewart, who both played a single game. Stewart had a shot and two penalty minutes.
