More trades in West

Al Montoya, a 23 year-old native of Glenview, has been traded by the New York Rangers to the Phoenix Coyotes. He has been assigned to the San Antonio Rampage. Phoenix traded Montoya and Marcel Hossa for goalie David LeNeveu, Fredrik Sjostrom and Josh Gratton.

Montoya has played goal in 31 games for the Hartford Wolfpack this season. He has a 16-8-3 record, 90.8 save percentage and 2.54 GAA. LeNeveu appeared in 21 games this season for the Rampage. He posted a record of 9-7-3 with 91.1 save percentage and a GAA of 2.66.

In Peoria, Dave Eminian is predicting moves by the St. Louis Blues on trade day were “no help” to the Peoria Rivermen. Jeff Woywitka, a blueliner with 30 points, has skated in 52 Peoria games this year.

Other moves in Peoria, prior to trade day, St. Louis assigned Chris Beckford-Tseu and Marek Schwarz, both goalies, to the team. Derek Gustafson was released from a PTO. Schwarz has played 23 games this season with the Rivermen, posting a record of 9-10-2, with a save percentage of 89.1 and a GAA of 2.57. Beckford-Tseu has been in 28 games for the Rivermen, posting a record of 15-9-2. He has a 90 percent save rate and a GAA of 2.61.
