The Abbotsford Heat recalled forward David Eddy from the Utah Grizzlies on Tuesday and assigned defenceman Nick Tuzzolino to their ECHL affiliate.

Eddy was summoned after Heat forwards Carter Bancks and Paul Byron suffered undisclosed injuries during a weekend set at home vs. the Milwaukee Admirals. The 23-year-old Eddy has suited up for six games with Abbotsford already this season, posting one assist.

Tuzzolino scored one goal in his 11 games with the Heat this season.

The local AHLers hit the road this week for a Friday-Saturday set vs. the Western Conference-leading Charlotte Checkers.
