The club obviously wanted him to be available to Springfield in case of injury to others and/or the promotion of the likes of Moore, Savard, Erixon, etc. if/when the NHL season starts, and they obviously wanted him to get playing time while being available for call-up. You could say a guy like Ted Ruth "beat" Madaisky for a spot in the AHL, but Ruth isn't getting any playing time; seems to me like they value Austin more because they want him playing.

He got hurt. Players get hurt. Coulda happened in Kamloops just as easily. He's low on the depth chart but still holds value to us in the pro ranks. Having him in the dub or the ECHL both have pros and cons. Basically, **** happens. Deal with it.
