NILSSON AND MUSICO JOIN WOLVES


February 27, 2016

The Chicago Wolves announced Saturday that goaltenders Anders Nilsson and P.J. Musico have been added to the roster prior to the team’s Amtrak Rivalry game versus the Milwaukee Admirals at Allstate Arena. Nilsson has been loaned by St. Louis (NHL) while Musico has signed a professional tryout contract (PTO).

Nilsson joins the Wolves after a trade Saturday between Edmonton (NHL) and St. Louis. The 25-year-old from Lulea, Sweden, has spent most of this season with Edmonton, where he posted a 10-12-2 record, 3.14 goals-against average and .901 save percentage. He also appeared in 2 games for Bakersfield (AHL).

Musico comes to the Wolves from Quad City (ECHL). The 25-year-old from Orange, California, is in his first year as a professional and posted a 7-3-1 record with a 2.35 goals-against average and .925 save percentage for Greenville (ECHL) before being acquired by Quad City on Feb. 9.

They join the team in the wake of goaltender Niklas Lundstrom being recalled from loan by St. Louis (NHL). Lundstrom, 23, appeared in 4 games for the Wolves and posted a 1-1-0 record with a 2.75 GAA and .901 save percentage. The Varmdo, Sweden, native was sent to Edmonton as part of the Nilsson trade.
