Heeter Up, Wedgewood Down; Bye-Bye Baier

(PR) TRENTON, NJ – The Trenton Titans, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Philadelphia Flyers, have announced that rookie goalie Scott Wedgewood has been assigned to Trenton from Albany (AHL) by New Jersey (NHL). In separate transactions, the Flyers have assigned goalie Cal Heeter to AHL affiliate Adirondack, while defenseman Eric Baier has been sent on loan to Charlotte (AHL).

Wedgewood (Brampton, Ontario) has been a rock between the pipes for the Titans in his rookie season. In 44 appearances, he is 17-21-3-2, with a 3.24 goals against (GA) and .898 save percentage. His first professional shutout (6-0, 29 saves versus Reading on February 23) was the first Trenton shutout in two years. His games, minutes (2,501), shots faced (1,329) and saves (1,194) were all on pace to break Trenton team records before his call-up.

After being called up to Albany on March 5, Wedgewood went 2-1 with a 3.27 goals against and an .889 save percentage. One of his wins came in his first AHL shootout, where just like his first with Trenton, he had a perfect save percentage.

Heeter, 24, is a rookie out of Ohio State. He has gone 8-13-2, with a 2.96 GA and a .906 save percentage at Adirondack. The St. Louis native made one preseason appearance this year with Trenton, stopping 30 in a 6-2, preseason win at Reading on October 6. In eight regular season games over two stints with the Titans, he had a 3-3 record with a 3.18 GA.

Baier (Summit, NJ) is making his third trip to the AHL this season, playing in Providence and Portland earlier in the year. Though 56 games with the Titans he had 13 points (3G, 10A), 18 PIM and a +2 rating.

The Trenton Titans returned in the 2011-12 hockey season after a five year hiatus and boasted a 26.1% increase in attendance over the previous year, the largest of any team in the (then) 20-team ECHL.
