Darche, Jancevski called up
The team announced this morning that wing Mathieu Darche and defenseman Dan Jancevski were called up from AHL Norfolk. No word on any corresponding moves downward, but it's safe to assume Tampa Bay wants a little more offensive punch from it's third and fourth lines and Darche has been a dynamo with the Admirals. In four games since he was sent down, he has three goals and seven assists and was the AHL's player of the week last week. Jancevski has four assists and 14 PIM with Norfolk. A seventh defenseman will give the team more options on the blue line.
The team had been playing with a 20-man roster (a budgetary move), which meant no scratches and, as well, no competition from within for playing time.
