WBS Sends Four to Wheeling

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

According to the AHL Transactions page, the WBS Penguins have sent defensemen Cody Wild and Philip Samuelsson, as well as forwards Cody Chupp and Matt Rust to the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL).

Ryan Schnell has been re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) from Wheeling.

For those in Wheeling unfamiliar with how these guys did in the AHL, here's what you're getting from those four guys:

Matt Rust
Season Stats: 36 games played, 4G, 7A, +2, 14 PIM

Cody Chupp
Season Stats: 15 games played, 1G, 4A, +4, 14 PIM

Philip Sameulsson
Season Stats: 41 games played, 1G, 7A, +3, 20 PIM

Cody Wild
Season Stats: 42 games played, 0G, 5A, +6, 28 PIM

I figured the four would get sent down shortly after the trading deadline and now Wheeling fans don't have to wonder why the WBS Penguins have a bunch of healthy bodies sitting in the stands on a regular basis.

The move leaves WBS with 14 healthy forwards and six healthy defensemen. This could mean that Carl Sneep is ready to play this weekend. He would make seven defensemen on the roster.

This news postpones the February Grades and they will post tonight.
