New to playoff roster

In waiting. . . the Black Aces

Because the Hartford Wolf Pack still have an outside shot at a playoff spot, management is reluctant to call up extras or spares, a group known as the Black Aces, who practice separately during the playoffs, until next weekend, when the AHL regular season ends. The Pack was six points out with five games to play as of Saturday morning. Brady Skjei and Marek Hrivik are already here. Other possible call-ups? Forwards Jayson Megna, Nicklas Jensen, Daniel Paille, defensemen Raphael Diaz and Ryan Graves and goalie Magnus Hellberg.
