Delmas out. Magers in.

I’m anxious to get home after spending two straight nights at IBA, but I figured Thunder fans would want this news ASAP: Goaltender Peter Delmas is leaving town.

Delmas, who has played poorly since he was placed here by the Montreal Canadians, is headed to the Wheeling Nailers of the East Coast Hockey League, Thunder coach Kevin McClelland said after tonight’s game. Delmas was 0-3-1, with a 4.85 GAA and a .836 SP.

The team leaves tonight for its road trip. Marty Magers, who has been solid (3-2, 3.18, .891), is expected to be on the bus. He has been on injured reserve. 

“He’s an experienced guy,” McClelland said. “Right now I think we’re a little young there (in net). It takes guys a little time to adjust. So I think you’ll have Magers pushing Gelinas back to the point where he needs to be and know that he’ll have to fight for that net.”

Jason Goulet, who has been on IR too, is also expected to make the road trip.
