Szydlowski Back to the Amerks; MacKenzie and Fienhage to Gwinnett

February 29, 2012 - By

Three minor moves this week for the Amerks moving players to and from the Gwinnett Gladiators.

Matt MacKenzie was finally cleared to play after missing 34 games with the Amerks and was sent to the Gladiators.  He had his leg sliced open by a skate in December and after a long recovery is finally ready for action again.  This was the first season for the rookie and has an entry level contract signed through the 2013-2014 season so we’ll see him again next season.

Corey Fienhage was also sent to the Gladiators after playing the role of the extra defenseman for most of the season for the Amerks.  In 17 games Fienhage had four assits and 20 penalty minutes.  He’s a defenseman who tries to use his size but at times was overmatched in the AHL.  He was only signed to an AHL contract.

Shawn Szydlowski also sent out a tweet that he’s headed back to Rochester.  In the past six games with the Gladiators he has scored one goal and also has three assists.
