The Atlanta Gladiators announced Tuesday that the Boston Bruins of the NHL have reassigned goaltender Dan Vladar to the team from the Providence Bruins of the AHL.
Vladar, 20, made one start for Providence in his brief stint back in the AHL. The former 3rd Round pick (75th overall) of the Boston Bruins in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft made 25 saves and denied all three shooters in a 3-2 shootout victory for the P-Bruins over the Belleville Senators this past Saturday. The 20-year-old Czech Republic native still has yet to be handed a defeat in regulation at the AHL level. Vladar has appeared in one game thus far for the Gladiators where he made 30 saves in a 3-1 loss at Florida on October 14th.
The Gladiators also announced the team has released goaltender Troy Passingham from his standard professional contract.
The Atlanta Gladiators 15th anniversary season continues at the Infinite Energy Arena on Friday, November 3rd against the Kansas City Mavericks at 7:35 PM. For ticket package information, visit the official team website at www.atlantagladiators.com or call the main office line at 770-497-5100.
