GREENVILLE, S.C. – Forwards Nick Poehling and Jack Poehling have been assigned to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits by the American Hockey League’s Ontario Reign. Both players return to the Upstate after joining Ontario’s Training Camp Roster ahead of the 2021 AHL season.
After four seasons each at St. Cloud State University, the twin brothers turned pro earlier this season with the Swamp Rabbits. Nick Poehling dressed in all 10 Greenville games this season and contributed four points (three goals, one assist). Nick totaled a career-best 26 points (eight goals, 18 assists) to conclude his NCAA career in 2019-20.
Line mate Jack Poehling also appeared in all 10 Swamp Rabbits games this season and posted four points (all assists). Jack also completed his college tenure with career-best numbers during the 2019-20 season with 20 points (nine goals, 11 assists).
In an additional move, goaltender Matt Ginn has been traded to the Kansas City Mavericks in exchange for cash. Ginn stopped 26 of 29 shots in his lone Greenville appearance on January 30 versus Jacksonville.
