Winnipeg Jets recall centre Patrice Cormier from AHL's IceCaps

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have recalled centre Patrice Cormier from the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Cormier has played in 32 games with the IceCaps this season, recording seven goals, four assists and 60 penalty minutes.

The Moncton, N.B., native had two points in 30 career NHL games with the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise.

He was originally drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the second round, 54th overall, in the 2008 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
