      Yarema Heads List Of Roster Moves

      01/03/05 - American Hockey League (AHL) Bridgeport Sound Tigers
      BRIDGEPORT, CT â€" The American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound
      Tigers, top affiliate of the National Hockey League’s New York
      Islanders, have announced plans to sign veteran center Brendan Yarema
      to a professional tryout contract. Yarema had been with the AHL’s
      Chicago Wolves but did not appear in any games this season because of
      an injury and a logjam of veterans on that team’s roster.

      The Sound Tigers also announced center Brett Nowak, center Derek
      Edwardson, center Mike Bayrack and right wing John Morlang have been
      released and that defenseman Vince Macri has been reassigned to the
      ECHL’s Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies. Nowak and Edwardson returned
      to Atlantic City while Bayrack and Morlang returned to the United
      Hockey League’s Danbury Trashers.

      Yarema, 28, had 16 goals, 17 assists, 33 points and 151 penalty
      minutes in 63 AHL games with Chicago last season. The 6’1’’ 210-
      pounder from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario split the 2002-03 season
      between the AHL’s Cincinnati Mighty Ducks and the ECHL’s Charlotte
      Checkers. Other stops in Yarema’s career include the AHL’s Houston
      Aeros in 2001-02, the London Knights of the British Superleague in
      2000-01, two seasons with the International Hockey League’s Kansas
      City Blades from 1998 through 2000 and the AHL’s Kentucky
      Thoroughblades in 1997-98. He split his first professional season,
      1996-97, between the AHL’s St. John’s Maple Leafs and the ECHL’s
      South Carolina Stingrays, winning the Kelly Cup Championship with
      South Carolina. Yarema played three years of junior hockey in the
      Ontario Hockey League with the Sarnia Sting, 1994-96, and Newmarket
      Royals, 1993-94.

      The Sound Tigers will play the second and third games of a stretch of
      seven straight on the road when they visit the Norfolk Admirals this
      Friday and Saturday.
