Vasilevskiy sent to AHL to play, Gudlevskis called up
Backup goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy has been reassigned to AHL Syracuse so that he can play over the weekend, with Kristers Gudlevskis called up to back up starter Ben Bishop.
Vasilevskiy has done this several times this season to keep him fresh. Tampa Bay plays Friday in New Jersey, then Sunday in Boston and Monday in Toronto. The Crunch play Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday.
Would think Vasilevskiy could get a couple of those games before rejoining the Lightning. He's 15-10-5 with a 2.75 goals against average this season with the Lightning.
In other news, Joel Vermin will be activated off injured reserve and reassigned to AHL Syracuse.
