I'll be cheering for Zoltan as well. He developed a lot of followers here with his performance at rookie camp in July when he earned himself a contract. The plan right now is for Hetenyi to start at the ECHL level in Cincinnati and serve as the No. 3 goalie for the Milwuakee Admirals (AHL) this season. Cincinnati shares their affiliation with Montreal too, so their goalies usually split time 50/50 between the two organizations. Hetenyi might also get a recall to Milwaukee to serve as the No. 2 behind Jeremy Smith if Magnus Hellberg needs to get in a few games.

Overall, I think he'll get a good shot here. With Chet Pickard and Atte Engren going to Europe this summer, there is a spot up for grabs in the Nashville system. Hetenyi earned a shot at it and will be given the opportunity to seize it this season.
