KALAMAZOO – The Kalamazoo Wings will be welcoming a new face to the lineup while at the same time losing two more.
Forward Alexandre Grenier has been reassigned to the K-Wings by the Chicago Wolves of the AHL. Grenier, who started the season in Salzburg, Austria, is a first year pro. Grenier was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the 3rd round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Eric Kattelus, the K-Wings leading scorer with 32 points (13 goals, 19 assists) signed an AHL contract with the Wolves today. The three-year pro also leads the team in power-play goals with five and shares the team lead in game-winning goals with two as well as one shorthanded goal.
Defenseman Adam Polasek has also been reassigned to the Wolves. Polasek, in his second professional season and first with the K-Wings has four goals and four assists in 34 games with the team.
The two become the sixth and seventh members of the K-Wings to either be reassigned or loaned to an AHL club this year.
Defenseman Mitch Versteeg was placed on the 21-day IR.
