Berkhoel signs with WBS

I've been trying unsuccessfully to work this in for two days, so I'll go ahead and post it on its own. The main reason I found this signing of Adam Berkhoel with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton interesting is that he could end up with ECHL affiliate Wheeling Nailers -- the place where former Thrasher prospects go to die it seems. Both Lane Manson and Mike Vannelli retired shortly after being sent to Wheeling.

Assuming M-A Fleury and Dany Sabourin are in Pittsburgh, that will leave John Curry, David Brown and Curtis Darling as competitors for Berkhoel. That's a lot of goalies. Berkhoel played last year with the ECHL Dayton Bombers and AHL Grand Rapids Griffins.
