CORPUS CHRISTI– After taking down the Amarillo Bulls yesterday 3-2, Corpus Christi has announced that (F) Roman Uchyn will lace up the skates for the Des Moines Buccaneers in the USHL while Trevor Heuser returns to the IceRays from his three game stint with the Bucs’.
“Roman drew a lot of attention early in the season and has developed well of late,” said head coach Justin Quenneville. “When he plays his style as a power forward, he has the ability to play at any level.”
In 22 games with the IceRays, the Elgin, IL native scored four goals, and assisted three others while leading the team in PIM’s with 88min.
“This is a great opportunity for Roman,” Quenneville added. “As much as we would like him in the lineup this month, we won't hold players back and we will continue to provide these opportunities to our players.”
Heuser played two games for Des Moines this past weekend and finished with a +1 rating in a 5-1 win on Friday, and a 5-2 on Saturday over Sioux City while recording 2PIM’s.
“Playing two games in Des Moines this weekend was a great experience,” said Heuser. “It was a good opportunity to get a little taste of the USHL. The team and organization as a whole was very professional and welcoming of me.”
On the year for the IceRays, Heuser has suited up for 13 games, picking up three assists.
Quenneville spoke highly about the return of the young defender.
“Trevor is excited to be back with the team, but thankful for the opportunity to play a couple games in Des Moines. The Bucs’ staff had nothing but positive feedback and we look forward to getting Trevor back on the ice.”
