Americans trade for blueline help
Boise, Idaho – The Allen Americans ECHL affiliate of NHL’s Ottawa Senators, and AHL’s Belleville Senators announced a trade this afternoon.
The Americans have acquired defenseman Nolan Orzeck, from the Iowa Heartlanders for future considerations. Orzeck had 34 points in 68 games last season with Iowa (6 goals and 28 assists).
With several injuries on the blueline, the Americans are looking to improve their overall roster. Allen lost defenseman Dalton Gally to a lower body injury in Wednesday night’s game. They are already minus Justin Allen, who is back in Texas with an upper body injury.
“This was a great opportunity to add a skilled defenseman to our lineup,” said Americans Head Coach and GM Chad Costello. “He has great speed and gives another quarterback for our power play unit.”
Orzeck will join the team for the second half of a six-game road trip next week in Wichita and Tulsa. The Americans return to action tonight in Idaho at 8:10 PM CST. Listen for FREE on the Americans 24/7 app or watch on Flo Hockey.
