The Cleveland Monsters started the week out with a bang after beating the Rockford IceHogs, 4-3, in a shootout. Zac Dalpe scored two goals in the win.
The win was not enough to keep the Monsters going. They fell to the IceHogs, 4-3, on January 19th after allowing three goals in the third period.
They headed to Chicago on Sunday where they would fall to the Wolves, 3-1. The Monsters played 50 plus minutes of great hockey. Some breakdowns in the final few minutes of the game led to the Monsters’ demise.
Just when you thought the transactions were going to die down a bit for the Monsters things got a little crazy.
Hayden Hodgson was returned to the Monsters on January 16th as well. He had been with the Florida Everblades to help fill a roster spot during the ECHL ALL-Star Classic.
After the bye week was over, Tyler Motte was returned to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Dean Kukan and Markus Hannikainen were recalled by the Columbus Blue Jackets on January 19th as extra bodies for their trip to the West coast.
