Lammers out as Moose juggle lineup

ROCKFORD, ILL. -- John Lammers is out, Taylor Ellington is in and Evan Oberg is just out of luck as the Manitoba Moose juggled their roster today in advance of their game with the Rockford IceHogs tonight.

The Moose released Lammers, who was pointless in 11 games with the Moose and shot at opposition goalies like police officers shoot at suspects -- If you aim centre-mass, odds are you’ll hit them somewhere. And Lammers always did.

Lammers, a third round draft pick of the Dallas Stars in 2004, came to the Moose from the Anchorage Aces of the East Coast Hockey League, although he did have AHL experience -- most recently with the Houston Aeros last season.

Meanwhile, the Moose announced they have recalled Ellington, a defenceman, from their East Coast affiliate in Victoria to cover for Oberg, who was unable to make this road trip because, get this, he’d misplaced his passport.

Ellington was in training camp with the Moose in September before being sent down. He’s got one goal and four assists in 13 games with the Salmon Kings this season.

Ellington was a second-round pick of the Vancouver Canucks in 2007. He’ll join the team in Peoria, where the Moose will play the Rivermen Friday night.

The Moose will go with six defencemen against Rockford tonight.
