In a somewhat suprising move, David Shantz has been called up to the Rochester Americans from the Dayton Bombers. Tyler Plante packed up his equipment after the tonights 5-1 loss against the Manitoba Moose.
In seven games this season with the Bombers, Shantz has a 4-2 record with one shoot out loss. He’s averaged 2.35 GA with a 0.914 save percentage. You may remember Shantz from the early part of the 07/08 season with the Amerks.
On the flipside, Plante has played in six games for the Amerks. He’s gone 0-5 with a 5.10 GAA and 0.850 save percentage.
While neither goalie has played well for the Amerks, they’ve both performed well elsewhere. That’s probably due to having a better team in front of them. While everyone has been demanding change of some sort, this isn’t what we were expecting. It may be the start of more changes to come.
