The Thrashers have assigned right wing Myles Stoesz and goaltender Dan Turple to the ECHL Gwinnett Gladiators. Stoesz will be the resident "heavy" for the team. During the Traverse City tournament, Gladiators coach Jeff Pyle said the great thing about Stoesz is "He's a gamer and he wants to learn."
The Wolves have also assigned (former Thrashers draft pick) left wing Mike Hamilton to Gwinnett. Hamilton was the guy who in college went over to a baseball player's apartment (with a posse) and beat him up over a girl. It's probably something he'd like to forget at this point, but there I go bringing it back up. I'm sure he's a nice enough guy, just don't steal his girlfriend and you'll be fine.
