Houston, TX – Houston Aeros General Manager Jim Mill announced on Sunday the team has assigned forward Nick Petersen to the Orlando Solar Bears, the Aeros ECHL affiliate.
Petersen was recalled on Oct. 27 and did not play in Houston’s 4-0 win at home over Milwaukee on Saturday night. The right wing is expected to play on Sunday in Orlando when the Solar Bears host Greenville.
Petersen attended training camp with Houston before he was assigned to Orlando on Oct. 11. He currently leads the ECHL in scoring with 12 points, posting six goals and six assists in only five games with Orlando. The 23-year old is in his third full season of pro hockey after splitting the last two seasons between Wilkes-Barre Scranton (AHL) and Wheeling (ECHL). In 75 AHL games, the right wing has 16 goals and 25 assists for 41 points. He was drafted by Pittsburgh in the fourth round (#121 overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Houston will play two games in Oklahoma City this coming weekend, prior to coming back home on Sunday, Nov. 4. The Aeros play the Barons on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center.
