Aston to Utah, Taffe Back, York Surgery, Matthias Up

Getting back to some Amerks related updates.. Peter Aston has been loaned to the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL. Aston has played in 17 games for the Amerks and not really had the chance to do a lot. He’ll be better off elsewhere getting more playing time to work on his game.

Jeff Taffe and Shawn Matthias were called up earlier this week. Taffe has been sent back but Matthias is still on recall. Steve MacIntyre was also recently sent back down.

The Amerks also sent out a press release stating that Mike Yorks knee surgery was successful and is expected back in 3 to 4 weeks. Interesting to note is that in the release Ted Nolan is quoted as saying, Mike has been dealing with knee issues all season long and it has come to a point where he could not skate on it.”

Amerks are back at it on Friday night vs the Hamilton Bulldogs at 7:05pm and it’s also another $1 beer and dogs night.
