On Monday, the Quebec Tigres activated LW Stellan Fisker from the disabled list. The 32-year-old Fisker missed nearly four weeks after suffering an upper-body injury. It was the second DL stint of the season for the winger, who suffered a lower-body injury in the first week of the season and has missed a total of 25 games so far on the year. In order to make room for Fisker’s return, the Tigres returned LW Carl Bleyer to their farm club in Maine. Bleyer has appeared in 10 games with Quebec, and recorded 1 assist during that time.
On Wednesday, the Washington Galaxy placed D Ambroz Melicar on the disabled list. The Galaxy called up the 23-year-old Melicar a couple of weeks ago after a strong season with their affiliate in Baltimore. He appeared in 10 games with Washington, recording 2 assists, before suffering an upper-body injury on Tuesday that will end his season. To replace Melicar, the Galaxy promoted D Buster Kratz from Baltimore. Kratz, 21, was acquired from Hamilton in the Eddie Costello trade at the deadline.
Also on Wednesday, the Tigres placed D Ward Jones on the injured list. Jones suffered a lower-body injury during the third period of Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to Hamilton, a blow that will likely end Jones’ season. It’s the second significant injury of the season for the 29-year-old blueliner, who missed over a month with an upper-body injury that happened just before the All-Star break. It’s rumored that this latest injury has Jones pondering retirement. To replace Jones, the Tigres called up D Ross Hruschka from Maine. The 19-year-old Hruschka has had a solid season with Maine, with a goal and 16 assists.
