In the pros: Bachman, Johnson, Lowery, O’Connell, Prosser, Testwuide

Tyler Johnson

Former Tiger Tyler Johnson (six points in 20 games) has left the ECHL following a trade from Chicago to South Carolina and headed to play in Europe. I left him a message  and hope to hear back soon.

Drew O’Connell was signed as a backup goalie recently for the injury-depleted Alaska Aces of the ECHL. The Anchorage native remains on the roster, judging from the league transactions list, but has yet to play.

I caught up with former CC captain Mike Testwuide, who along with Colorado Springs native Ben Holmstrom, will play in the AHL’s outdoor game Friday night. The game will be rebroadcast at 2 p.m. Mountain on Saturday

Nate Prosser was sent down to the AHL on Thursday.

Here’s a pretty thorough scouting report on former CC captain Ryan Lowery, who is injured.

Kari Lehtonen’s continued struggles may give goalie Richard Bachman a chance to start more often for the Stars.
