Kalamazoo, MI- The Kalamazoo Wings, proud member of the ECHL, three-time defending North Division Champions and National Hockey League affiliate to the Vancouver Canucks, and American Hockey League’s Chicago Wolves announce the Canucks have reassigned defenseman Yann Sauve (so-VEE) from the Wolves to the K-Wings.
A third-year pro, Sauve was a 2nd round (41st overall selection) of the Canucks in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Sauve joins the K-Wings from the Wolves, where he recorded one point (an assist) in 12 games.
A teammate of current K-Wings forward Steven Anthony with the Saint John Sea Dogs (QMJHL) in juniors, Sauve played for Vancouver for five games in his rookie season of 2010-11.
During that same season, Sauve recorded 14 points (3 goals, 11 assists) in 39 games with the AHL’s Manitoba Moose.
In a separate transaction, the K-Wings have released forward Jon Higgins.
