BOISE, Idaho – Head coach and director of hockey operations Hardy Sauter announced Tuesday that forward Adam Huxley has been loaned from the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads to the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.
It will be the second time Huxley has suited up for the Wolves this season. He earned a spot on Chicago’s opening night roster out of training camp and skated in a pair of games before being sent back to Idaho. He also played five games for the AHL’s Springfield Falcons during the 2008-09 season.
The 27 year old Alberta native is in his seventh full season of professional hockey and second season with the Steelheads. He led the team with 210 penalty minutes last season as the team’s primary enforcer and is second on the team this season with 112 PIMs despite only skating in 32 of the team’s 51 games. He’s also having one of his most-productive seasons offensively, with four goals and 10 assists after setting a career-high with 21 points (7g-14a) last season.
