AHL teams must announce their 22-man playoff rosters and "in-residence" lists by 3 p.m. Thursday. Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld said "no deal is imminent, but we may look to improve our club if we can."
The Pack are likely looking for a center and defenseman, especially with Gernander having to play defense for the fifth game. Center Blair Betts is likely out for the season, while Ulmer, another center, wing Chad Wiseman and defensemen Jeff MacMillan and Jake Taylor could be sidelined awhile.
MacMillan will have an MRI today on his shoulder, and Wiseman will visit Dr. Karen Johnston in Montreal because of post-concussion syndrome. Jeff Hamilton returned from the flu, but Ortmeyer was out with a rib injury.
