Turple assigned, again, to Griffins by Thrashers

Dan Turple has been assigned, again, by the Atlanta Thrashers to the Grand Rapids Griffins. Turple, a goalie, played for the Gwinnett Gladiators. He was assigned to the Griffins, an affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings, earlier in the season.

[Edit: A little more research here and we find a Holly Gunning blog entry showing a pouting Dan Turple. Gunning says, in her blog, posted on the 9th, that Turple was no longer wearing Gwinnett colors. Photos she posted show Turple in an apparently disinterested manner, contemplating the game. "I asked Jeff Pyle what all was up with Turple. He said Turps had come into his office to complain about not playing -- saying he had played only four of the last 19. Jeff reminded him that months ago he told the two goalies that whoever was winning they would run with it. Jeff said he thinks Turps is bitter..." Gunning says in her blog.]
