TULSA, Okla. – Goaltender Trevor Cann has left the Tulsa Oilers due to being recalled by the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League.
Cann joined the Oilers from Lake Erie in December and played his first game for Tulsa on December 18th, a 2-1 win over Amarillo.
The 2007 second round draft choice of the Colorado Avalanche is 11-6-1 with the Oilers with a 2.81 goals against average and a .915 save percentage.
“We knew there was a good chance Trevor may get recalled to the ,” Oilers coach Bruce Ramsay said. “He’s done a great job for us and got some great experience. We don’t know how long he may stay in the and we wish him the best. But we will move on here.”
Ramsay says Marty Magers who recently returned from a hand injury will be in goal for the Oilers against Missouri on Tuesday night. Brad Best of Tulsa has been signed as a back-up goaltender for the Oilers.
“Marty has played well for us. We need to keep playing well in front of him,” Ramsay said. Magers has the season high for saves in a game when he stopped 54 shots in a 2-1 shootout win at Rio Grande Valley on December 29th.
