Aneloski coming back

Forgot to add these two items to my Cedar Rapids RoughRiders game story in Sunday’s paper.

Defenseman Bryce Aneloski is returning to the team this week and will play with the Riders the rest of the season. Aneloski should definitely improve the d-corps. He was a good player last season for Cedar Rapids, posting eight goals and 20 points in 59 games. He also was a plus-13. Aneloski spent the first semester this year at Providence College, playing in all 16 games for the Friars. He has decided to transfer to another school.

Also, forward Greg Burke is scheduled to have surgery soon on his injured right shoulder and is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to Riders Coach Mark Carlson. It’s a loss for the RoughRiders, considering Burke has a lot of talent. He was a sixth-round draft pick of the NHL’s Washington Capitals this past summer and is headed to the University of New Hampshire.

Burke had two goals in eight games this season. He has been placed on the Injured Reserve list, with Aneloski taking his spot on the active roster. Carlson said there are no immediate plans to make other roster moves, even though the club has eight defensemen and only 13 forwards.
