POPE AND SORENSON RETURN FROM UTICA

Forwards David Pope and Tanner Sorenson join Kalamazoo on the road after stints with AHL’s Comets.

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced the return of two players from the team’s American Hockey League affiliate in Utica.

The Canucks reassigned forward David Pope to Kalamazoo from Utica, while the AHL’s Comets also returned Tanner Sorenson to the K-Wings on loan.

Pope, 25, returned from and early-season injury and posted 2 points (1g, 1a) in four games for the K-Wings. The Canucks acquired the Edmonton, Alberta native in a trade with the Detroit Red Wings. He did not appear in a game for Utica following his assignment to the Comets last week.

Sorenson, 26, appeared in two games for Utica following his call-up Nov. 17 and picked up his first AHL assist in his debut Nov. 27 against Syracuse. The Anchorage, Alaska native last played for Kalamazoo Nov. 2 against Wheeling and compiled 6 points (3g, 3a) in six games for the K-Wings.

Kalamazoo faces the Cincinnati Cyclones tonight at 7:35 p.m. at Heritage Bank Center. Catch the action on 1660 AM, The Fan, in Kalamazoo or online on ECHL.TV.
