St. John’s IceCaps Recall Joey Sides

Updated: November 30, 2012

The St. John’s IceCaps have announced they have recalled forward Joey Sides from the Colorado Eagles of the ECHL. The move was made after forward John Albert was injured in Wednesday’s 3-2 win over the Adirondack Phantoms.

Albert who was suffering from an injury was not playing to his full potential.  The coaching staff made a decision to have him evaluated and to fill the hole left in the line-up by calling up Sides.

Sides has recorded 9 goals, 9 assists for the Eagles and has 36 penalty minutes.  The coaching staff is hoping to add a little extra offensive punch on the third or fourth lines and think that Sides can contribute in that capacity.

The IceCaps faceoff against the Albany Devils tonight.  The Devils sit in the basement of the AHL’s Eastern Conference with a record of 4-7-5.
