The Thrashers have recalled 6'3", 225 lb forward Jordan LaVallee and reassigned Joe Motzko to the Chicago Wolves. LaVallee had a goal and an assist in two games with the Thrashers at the end of last season.
3rd/4th line type center, spent 4yrs at UND as their shut down center. Was capt. as well I think. Provides leadership, grit, energy, and excels in the defensive end. Playing for Wolves right now. He is not going to chip in offensive numbers, that's not his game; shutting people down is.
I never liked Exelby. He can't fight and he always goes for the big hit instead of making the defensive play. I was so glad when Atlanta kept him up in the NHL instead of sending him to Chicago all those years ago...
Kulda has started playing like he did last year so I think he deserves a call. Rivers would be nice as well but I can not remeber if he was a Wolves or a Thrashers signing.
Still hoping they trade Waddell for a bag of used jocks.
