Kalamazoo, MI- Two days removed for being proclaimed the ECHL’s CCM Rookie of the Month for December, Kalamazoo Wings goaltender Jordan Binnington has been reassigned by the St. Louis Blues to the American Hockey League’s Chicago Wolves.
By heading to Chicago, Binnington becomes the 12th member of the K-Wings this season to be either reassigned or loaned to an AHL club.
In Binnington’s absence, the K-Wings have signed Jordan Neamonitis(NEE-ah-mon-uh-tis) as an emergency goaltender.
