HARTFORD, December 15, 2011: Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has recalled forward Jeff Prough from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Prough, 25, a fourth-year pro out of Brown University, is tied for the Road Warriors’ team lead in points, with 12 goals and 13 assists for 25 points, along with eight penalty minutes, in 21 games. The 5-9, 180-pound Dearborn Heights, MI native split last season between the AHL’s Albany Devils and the Trenton Devils of the ECHL. In 16 games with Albany, his first career AHL stint, Prough tallied one goal and added four assists for five points and served four minutes in penalties, and in ECHL action he had 25 goals, good for second on the Trenton team, and 17 assists for 42 points, third-most on the squad, in only 48 games.
In 207 career ECHL games with the Road Warriors, Devils, Florida Everblades and Gwinnett Gladiators, Prough has amassed 100 goals and 92 assists for 192 points, along with 173 PIM.
