When the Worcester Sharks open their season-long seven-game road trip on Friday night in Albany, New York, San Jose Sharks fans may notice a familiar face in the lineup.
Goaltender Antero Niittymaki
, in Worcester on a conditioning assignment, was activated off injured reserve on Monday
and could see some game action this weekend during the three games in three nights stretch.
After a tough stretch of games in November, Worcester is riding a three-game winning streak and a 5-0-1 record in the month of December, jumping up to third place in the Atlantic Division. The top line featuring Benn Ferriero
, John McCarthy
and Tommy Wingels
have been red hot with all three players riding three-game point streaks headed into the weekend.
