Heat assign Brown to ECHL

The Abbotsford Heat reassigned David Brown to the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL on Monday.

The Abbotsford Heat have settled on a goaltending tandem, as the team reassigned David Brown to the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL on Monday.

Brown had been the third goalie on the Heat roster since training camp. But he hadn’t seen any game action, as Leland Irving handled the vast majority of the work and Joni Ortio got his first start last Saturday against Oklahoma City.

The Heat open a seven-game road trip, their longest of the season, on Thursday against the Houston Aeros.
