Las Vegas NV –

Wranglers assistant coach Brent Bilodeau carved out a 12-year professional hockey career as a big, strong defenseman.

But put the 6-foot-4-inch former NHL first-round draft pick on a basketball court and he’s no match for his wife, former WNBA player Cass Bauer-Bilodeau.

“I definitely don’t want to challenge her on the basketball court. I went on the court with her a couple times and got beat up,” he said. “I got my nose broken a couple times. She was just practicing some post moves, and the next thing I know an elbow comes flying at my head, and I’m lying on the ground and she’s going in for a layup.

The Calgary Flames General Manager and Head Coach Darryl Sutter announced today the acquisition of forward Kristian Huselius from the Florida Panthers in exchange for defenseman Steve Montador and forward Dustin Johner. In a separate move, the Wranglers announced left wing Charles Linglet has been loaned to Las Vegas by the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League.

Left Wing Charles Linglet was originally acquired as the future consideration for a March 22nd trade that sent Wranglers defenseman Ryan Gaucher to the Alaska Aces for forward Jordan Cameron and Linglet. Linglet started the season in Peoria with the Rivermen scoring four goals and adding four assists for eight points in nine games played. The 22-year old left wing helped the Aces win the West Division and a trip to the Conference Finals this past season. Linglet was third on the team in scoring behind Scott Gomez and Chris Minard. The Montreal native posted career-highs for goals (28) and points (62) in 72 games played. Linglet finished second on the team with 13 power-play goals. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound left wing represented Alaska as a rookie in the 2004 ECHL All Star Game. For his career, Linglet has scored 52 goals and added 73 assists for 125 points in 150 games played. Linglet had a strong playoff performance this past season, leading the Aces in scoring with six goals and 10 assists for 16 points in 15 games played. Linglet has 23 points (8G-15A) in 22 career playoff games.

Johner played nine games for Las Vegas this season posting two goals and two assists for four points. The second-year right wing set the team record for most goals in one season during the 2004-05 season with 22 in 51 games played. Johner also spent time in Omaha this season of the AHL, playing five games without a point. The Florida Panthers originally drafted Johner in the sixth round (#169 overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. The Panthers use the Florida Everblades as their ECHL affiliate.

Las Vegas NV -The Las Vegas Wranglers announced today the team traded left wing Adam Huxley
to the Victoria Salmon Kings in exchange for future considerations. Las Vegas also
announced defenseman Christian Chartier signed a 25-game player-tryout contract
(PTO) with the Iowa Stars of the American Hockey League.
“Obviously it was a difficult decision on my part”, said Wranglers General Manager /
Head Coach Glen Gulutzan. “We felt as an organization we wanted him to further
develop in his hockey career. Adam needs a lot of playing time right now and
Victoria is short on numbers, so they are able to provide ice time for him. It was a
decision that will help us out in the future and it will help Adam immediately. This
was a very tough trade for us”.

Huxley leaves as the team’s all-time leader in penalty minutes with 299 in 57 games
played. The Wainwright, ALTA native only played in two games this season due to
injury, posting no points with five penalty minutes. Huxley set the Wranglers
single-season record with 294 penalty minutes last season.

Chartier signs his second PTO of the season, this time with the Iowa Stars. He leads
all Wranglers’ defenseman with one goal and 11 assists for 12 points in 14 games
played this season. Chartier will play for his second team in the AHL this season
after a one-game stint in Manitoba with the Moose. Chartier, 24, has played in 195
games in the AHL during his four-year pro career, all but one with the St. John’s
Maple Leafs from 2001-2004. In that time, he recorded 12 goals and 46 assists for 58
points and 100 penalty minutes. Chartier was originally drafted by the Edmonton
Oilers with their seventh choice, 199th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. The
St. Lazere, MAN native played in 65 games with Las Vegas during the 2004-05 season,
posting nine goals and 20 assists for 29 points.
