Thursday was a busy afternoon on Falcons Way, as players were added and subtracted left and right over the course of mere hours.
Tyler Beskorowany had a relatively brief stint in Springfield, playing just two games. At the beginning of the season, however, he was the more reliable of the three goalies between himself, Louis Domingue and Nicklas Treutle, with a 3.55 GAA and .885 save percentage. However, on November 18 he was loaned to Norfolk in the ECHL where he posted a 3.78 GAA and .927 save percentage in three appearances with a 0-2-0. He was recalled on November 22, but did not appear in another game for the Falcons. Beskorowany and the Falcons mutually parted ways, and he will return to the German Elite League.
Cunningham Back to the Falcons
Falcons captain Craig Cunningham was sent back to Springfield this morning after spending six games with the Coyotes. Cunningham did not register any points, but averaged 10:35 ice time with a minus-1 plus/minus during his time in Arizona.
He has a 5-4-9 line with the Falcons in 12 games with six penalty minutes.
Falcons Sign Two to AHL Contracts
The Falcons made two mainstays on the ice permanent Thursday morning, as Phil Lane and Ross Mauermann were signed to AHL contracts after beginning the season on Professional Tryout Contracts.
Lane, who was drafted by the Coyotes in 2010 and has remained part of the organization since, has a goal and a pair of assists this season with 37 penalty minutes in 17 games.
Mauermann has a goal with three assists thus far this season in 19 games. This is Mauermann's first professional season following a national championship-winning season at Providence College.
