Aeros release Brandon Rogers

I'd be lying if I said I saw this one coming, but it does make sense.
He is just too far down the proverbial totem pole at this point.

He will catch on ... somewhere ...

And here is the release from the Aeros:


HOUSTON --- The American Hockey League’s (AHL) Houston Aeros, affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, today announced that defenseman Brandon Rogers has been released from his Professional Tryout Contract (PTO).

Rogers played in one game for the Aeros this season, collecting an assist vs. Oklahoma City on October 17. He also registered two penalty minutes (PIM).

Rogers played in 198 regular season games and 25 playoff contests with the Aeros beginning in 2007-08. His best season in Houston came during the 2008-09 season when he played in 74 games and posted 32 points (3-29-32) with 80 PIM. He also appeared in 20 games during the 2009 Calder Cup Playoffs totaling three points, all on assists with 12 PIM.

The bad, news - he's unemployed.

The good news - he doesn't have to endure the Aeros 2010-2011 season.

Forecheck, I'm beginning to think you're a bit down on the Aeros chances for this season.

Brandon did some excellent work with Kids Unlimited. He will be missed and I wish him the very best of everything.

We'll take him here in Bloomington on the CHL's PrairieThunder....

There should be another one that ought to be released and/or replaced by some talent.
I do wish Rogers all the best, he did give so much to the team in past seasons, but what's in the past does not count, right!
Thanks, but no thanks.

He is coming to Poprad (Slovakia) and will fight for the league title as the play-off is 5 matches ahead and Poprad is currently second. Kyle Wanwig is joining him as well, so it won´t be a bad/sad start for him :)
