Wolves make three moves


April 28, 2014

The Chicago Wolves announced Monday that they have reassigned defenseman Brett Ponich to Kalamazoo, released defenseman Henrik Odegaard to play for Norway in the IIHF World Championship, and released forward Zach Pochiro from his professional tryout contract (PTO).

PONICH, who contributed three assists in 14 regular-season games for the Wolves, joins Kalamazoo prior to Game 6 of its first-round ECHL playoff series with Greenville. The 23-year-old posted three goals and five assists in 51 regular-season appearances for the Wings.

ODEGAARD played in the Wolves’ season opener before spending the rest of the regular season and the playoffs with Missouri (CHL). He returned to the Wolves on April 18, but did not appear in a game. Norway is one of 16 countries participating in the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship on May 9-25 in Minsk, Belarus.

POCHIRO signed a PTO with the Wolves on April 15, but did not play in an American Hockey League game. Prior to his arrival in Chicago, the 20-year-old forward posted two assists in nine games for Kalamazoo.

The Wolves and Rochester are tied 1-1 in their best-of-five Western Conference Quarterfinals, which resumes with Game 3 at 7 p.m. Thursday at Allstate Arena. The Wolves also host Game 4 at 7:30 p.m. Friday and would host Game 5, if necessary, at 3 p.m. Sunday.
