Jack Roslovic was sent to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League on Tuesday.
Roslovic was a first round pick of the Winnipeg Jets in 2015 and has played with the U.S. National Development Team Program, but his Major Junior rights are owned by the Knights. London acquired them from Flint in the summer.
Since Roslovic while outside the Canadian Hockey League, he can play in the AHL as a 19-year old. He played in two pre-season games for Winnipeg, averaging 12:37 of ice time.
A decision will now be made as to whether the Columbus native should stick with the Moose. American League training camps are just getting underway.
Meanwhile, the London Knights have welcomed Max Jones back to town. The 18-year old forward was assigned to the Knights by the Anaheim Ducks late Monday night after his first NHL training camp and pre-season. Jones played in one exhibition game for the Ducks. He was their first round pick, 24th overall in June’s NHL Entry Draft.
Jones will enter his second year with the Knights after finishing year one as a Memorial Cup Champion. He will always be remembered for helping to set up the tying goal in the Memorial Cup final. Jones dug a puck out of the corner, got it to Aaron Berisha and he fed Christian Dvorak in front.
Jones could play Friday against the Peterborough Petes, but did suffered what Ducks’ coach Randy Carlyle referred to as a bruised shoulder while with Anaheim, so he will be evaluated this week.
