89 posts in this topic

Welcome to regular season, folks.  We'll keep track of the Havoc roster action in this thread.
The latest news will appear in new posts, but this original post will be kept up-to-date for quick reference.

Injured Reserve (0)

Each team is allowed (1) 14-day IR, (2) 21-day IR, and (1) 30-day IR, plus the dreaded "season-ending" IR.
Dates shown are from the SPHL transaction log, but the start of the IR period can be backdated to the actual date of injury.
Usually you can count forward from the last game in which the player appeared to find the potential return date.  YMMV.

Players may remain on IR later if they are not medically cleared to resume play, but may not return earlier.

Players on IR do not count against the active roster.

The Havoc welcome back last season's SPHL Rookie of the Year, center John Lidgett.  While Scott Henegar lead in goals scored (25 vs. 15), Lidgett lead in total points and ended the season 15-27-42 over 51 games.  He was on Huntsville's protected list but was never announced as signed for training camp, being committed to the ECHL Alaska Aces.  Sadly, the Aces released Lidgett last week to make room for a needed blueliner.

Lidgett's talents make him an obvious candidate for a future call-up.  Until then, the Aces' loss is the Havoc's gain.

 

10/24/16  Lidgett, John (C) signed contract

Saw the announcement about Lidgett on Facebook but it looks like it may have been removed.  Cant find any other sources on the signing either.  I had liked the post but its even missing from my activity log.

The press release was removed from the Havoc website as well.  But the transaction is still posted in the log.

Along with the acquisition of Lidgett today comes the movement of Nieuwendyk off the active roster.

Returning to the "Friends of Tateson" pattern, the Havoc welcome rookie forward Nolan Huysmans from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks for a 3-gamer.  In his senior year with the Nanooks, Huysmans was #2 in points with 7-15-22 over 36 games.  Huysmans also attended the ECHL Alaska Aces training camp, as did Lidgett.

 

10/29/16  Huysmans, Nolan (F) signed 3 game tryout

Scored a goal and was 1st star last night- I'd say he's Lidgett-imately back in and playing for Huntsville.

Huysmans gets to remain on the roster for another three games.  So far he's 1-1-2.  He filled in for Christian Powers on 10/29 (KNX), and for Jordan Wood on 11/4 (COL) and 11/5 (ROA).

 

11/7/2016  Huysmans, Nolan (RW) signed 3 game tryout

The Havoc finally join the trade frenzy, reactivating Nieuwendyk from 14-day IR and sending him to Fayetteville.  We wish him all the best with the FireAntz.

A couple minor roster moves over the weekend.  First up, Nolan Huysmans was released after his second 3-game tryout.  In his six games with the Havoc he was 1-2-3 and +3 with 7 PIM.

11/19/16    Huysmans, Nolan (RW) released from 3 game tryout

 

In his place, the Havoc acquire experienced winger John Clewlow.  Clewlow started the season with Knoxville, but was placed on waivers last week.  He has played 200+ games in the SPHL, primarily with Fayetteville from 2012 to 2015.  For the 2015-16 season he split his time between Knoxville and Pensacola.  He joins the Havoc after 7 games with Knoxville where he was 1-0-1 and -6.

11/19/16    Clewlow, John (RW) signed contract

I noticed Fellnermyer had a C on his sweater last night.  Can't find anything online to cite.  I even scoured facebook pictures.

Two new players move onto IR today.  Lidgett was already on 14-day IR, but transitions to 21-day.  

Expect some new faces this week.

12/06/16    Lidgett, John (C) placed on 21 day IR
12/06/16    Fellnermayr, Scott (C) placed on 14-day IR
12/06/16    Wilkinson, Ryan (D) placed on 21 day IR

And the Havoc have their first call-up in Johnny Daniels.  We wish him all the best with the ECHL Atlanta (formerly Gwinnett) Gladiators.  In the meantime, this should make things interesting with two other centers (Lidgett, Fellnermayr) on IR.  

12/08/16    Daniels, Johnny (C) loaned to ECHL Atlanta

 

Plugging the defenseman hole left by Wilkinson (also on IR) is Ben Kramer.  Kramer began his pro hockey career last season with FHL Brewster before getting a call-up to the Ice Gators.  This season he was signed by Peoria and played two games while Trudel was angrily churning his roster.  Kramer was 0-11-11 last season in 29 games with Louisiana, so we'll see how he makes out in Huntsville.

12/08/16    Kramer, Ben (D) signed contract

With numbers like that, it's a good thing he's not a goalie.  :wacko:

The second call-up of the season arrives less than a week after the first as Nolan Kaiser heads to the ECHL Adirondack Thunder.  Kaiser has tallied 2-7-9 in 17 games and is a +9 defenseman.  His absence -- for however long -- will be keenly felt.  Still, all the best to him as he climbs the ladder.  He's certainly earned it.

12/13/16    Kaiser, Nolan (D) loaned to ECHL Adirondack

 

To help fill the holes at center left by Lidgett and Fellnermayr, the Havoc in turn call-up Chad Bennett from FHL Port Huron.  Bennett started the season with Columbus, but was placed on waivers and wound up playing 13 games with the Prowlers.

12/13/16    Bennett, Chad (C) signed contract

They go up, they come back down.  Daniels played three games with the Atlanta Gladiators, but recorded no points.  Nevertheless, we're glad to have him back in Huntsville.

12/15/16    Daniels, Johnny (C) returned from loan to ECHL Atlanta

 

Bolstering the depleted blue line is Stephen Gallo.  Gallo has been playing for the FHL Danbury Titans this season, but was traded recently to the FHL Port Huron Prowlers.  Last season was spent with the FHL Berlin River Drivers.

12/15/16    Gallo, Stephen (D) signed contract

First, the good news.  The Havoc see two players return to the lineup for the Tuesday game against Columbus.  Kaiser played 3 games with the Adirondack Thunder but, sadly, scored no points despite 7 shots on goal.  Lidgett has been out since 11/18, first on 14-day IR, then on 21-day IR.

 

12/26/16    Lidgett, John (C) activated from IR
12/26/16    Kaiser, Nolan (D) returned from loan to ECHL Adirondack

 

With Kaiser back, the Havoc place Gallo on waivers.  Gallo played 3 games with the Havoc and had one assist.  We'll see if another SPHL team claims him or if he goes back down to FHL Danbury.

12/26/16    Gallo, Stephen (D) placed on waivers

 

Now, the bad news.  As expected, Justin Tateson has been moved to IR following the scrum in Pensacola.  Per the office, Tateson suffered a lower body injury in the action below (0:45).  The Havoc enforcer stands 3rd in the league for penalty minutes (55), behind Macon's Sicard (86) and Knoxville's Vandergunst (69).  The next Huntsville player in the rankings is Kaiser at #17 with 31 PIM.

12/26/16    Tateson, Justin (D) placed on 21 day IR

Gallo did not go back down to the FHL but was instead picked up by Knoxville after being waived by Huntsville.  While he was on callup, his rights were traded from Port Huron to Watertown.  Here's hoping he can continue to play in the SPHL.

Knoxville    12/29/16    ADD Gallo, Stephen (D) signed contract

The Havoc go fishing in FHL waters again, calling up Eric Witzel for a three-gamer from the Danville Dashers.  Last season Witzel split his time between FHL Dayton and the late, lamented IceGators.

12/30/16    Witzel, Eric (C) signed 3 game tryout

A busy day for transactions in Huntsville.
To begin with, Nowakowski is heading to the ECHL Cincinnati Cyclones.  The winger has gone 14-11-25 in 23 games, so a call-up always seemed likely.

01/02/17    Nowakowski, Dylan (RW) loaned to ECHL Cincinnati

 

Also in red today is John Lidgett, who heads back to IR just after coming off it.  He was activated only 12/26 in time for the game against Columbus, but was then scratched for the home-and-home against Evansville.  Whatever's ailing him, here's hoping he's back soon.

01/02/17    Lidgett, John (C) placed on 14-day IR

 

Exchanging places with him is Fellnemayr.  Fellnermayr wore out his welcome on 14-day IR that started 12/6.

01/02/17    Fellnermayr, Scott (C) activated from IR

 

And, lastly, the Havoc sign defenseman Andy Wiligar.  Wiligar played the last years in Columbus and was 3-9-12 in 46 games last season.  He's another one of the Ooks from NAIT, along with former teammates French, Piluso, and Fellnermayr.

01/02/17    Willigar, Andy (D) signed contract
