Quick Roster Notes

With the suspension of Justin Fontaine, the call-ups of Kris Foucault and Marco Scandella, and the addition to the team of Brad Staubitz, the Aeros have made a few roster moves that we've missed out on the last several days, so...

They signed LW Devin DiDiomete to a PTO today.  He played the previous three seasons with the Hartford Wolfpack/Connecticut Whale, and he played two games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season.  He was playing with the ECHL's Chicago Express at the time he joined the Aeros.  I'm assuming he'll be attempting to help replace Fontaine and Foucault.

RW Rob Mignardi was signed to a PTO last week, right before Jed Ortmeyer rejoined the team.  Meanwhile, Harrison Reed and C.J. Stretch were released from their PTOs. 

The Aeros take on the Milwaukee Admirals tonight at 7:00 in Milwaukee, game number four of the 11 game road trip, so let's see if they can put the distractions of the past couple of days behind him and play some good hockey.

Looking forward to seeing Didiomete play tonight, I'd say while best known for his fighting talents, his stickhandling abilities were rather impressive in the one Express game I was able to catch him in (naturally, the other game, he was suspended).

Captcha code is "painessi", hopefully the Aeros can be a pain in the essi to play against tonight.

Sorry to see Stretch go. I liked him. He hustled.
