Finally, my friends, Hamilton is healthy enough to send a player down to us: Maxime Lacroix has been assigned. Lacroix, 22, has 1 point in 16 games with Hamilton, but in 2008-09 he amassed 64 points in 63 games (also 18 points in 23 playoff games) en route to a Kelly Cup Championship with South Carolina. He also maintains well over a penalty-minute per game, so he appears to have a bit of a chippy side to him.

Also I thought I’d catch up on some stats for the boys:
— Dustin Sproat is tied for twelfth in the league in points with 23.
— Matt Pierce, currently on recall to Milwaukee, is sixth in the league in goals with 12.
— Pierce is also tied for the league lead in PPG with 6. While Barret Ehgoetz and Adam Henrich (all with Ontario) are tied for 13 with 4.
— Reid Cashman’s 8 PPA are good for 7th.
— Scott Reynolds is shooting 100% in the shootout on the year (2 for 2).
— Matt Pierce is 5th in rookie scoring.
— The Cyclones have allowed the least goals in the division at 61. Across the league, only Idaho (58) has surrendered less.
— Their 297 PIM are least in the league; 150 less than any team in their division. With only having allowed 103 shorthanded opportunities, their 85.4% is third (88.1% at home). Let’s not talk about the powerplay (16.5%, by the way).
— Jeremy Smith’s 2.45 GAA is 2nd best in the league.
