After a tough 2-6 loss at the hands of the Elmira Jackals last weekend, the Trenton Titans are making some roster moves. One of these moves comes at the insistence of the player that is departing from the organization.
Kelsey Wilson of the Titans is voluntarily leaving the organization to explore a career opportunity over seas. Wilson just started with the team this season. He has only played five games and has two assists. Before playing for the Titans he was with San Francisco, but now he has plans to move to England to play for Nottingham. The most surprising part of the story is that England has an ice hockey team.
Due to Wilson’s absence, the Adirondack Phantoms have agreed to loan the Titan’s Matt Mangene. Mangene has only played in four games this season due to an upper body injury. He was signed by the Flyers last April and did play a little bit for the Phantoms at the end of the season. Most fans should remember that he was invited for Trial on the Isle this summer and may have been invited to training camp if it had ever occurred.
The Flyers have also decided to call defensemen Matt Konan up to the AHL team. Konan has only been playing with the Titans since the end of November and came down to the ECHL after being injured in the pre-season.
These are not the only roster changes for the Titans. They have also acquired Jacob Cepis in a trade from the Idaho Steelheads for “Future considerations.” Looking at the stats, Cepis looks like a strong player. Last year he had 58 points with his 26 goals and 32 assists. For this season he’s logged six goals and 7 assists within 15 games.
He could definitely help the Titans to get some more wins this season, but it will be an adjustment on everyone’s part.
