Pat Galivan has been assigned from AHL Texas while Joey Haddad, Shane Sims and Scott Fleming have been assigned from the Gladiators AHL affiliate Portland Pirates.

Sims attended camp with the Portland Pirates before he was assigned to Gwinnett. The East Amherst, N.Y. native earned 71 points (16g-55a) in 152 career collegiate games with Ohio State University from 2007-11. Sims was drafted by the New York Islanders in the fifthth round of the 2006 NHL entry draft with the 126th overall pick. He skated in one NHL game with the Islanders last year following his final season as a Buckeye.
