>Ganzak Signs PTO With Norfolk

>Great news today, for Wheeling Nailers defenseman Mitch Ganzak, as he has signed a PTO with the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals (affiliate of the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning.)

Ganzak has played well this season in the “E” with Wheeling, registering 4 goals, 18 assists, and is third in the ECHL with + 19 ranking.

For those who don’t know, “PTO” stands for Professional Try Out. These types of contracts are for 25 games, but a player can be released before those allotted games are up. A second PTO can also be signed, the difference here being that the player becomes a free agent after the second PTO is completed/terminated, or the player will be signed to an “SPC”, meaning standard player contract.

Ganzak will wear number 43 for the Admirals, who take on the Portland Pirates at 7pm.

Congratulations and good luck Mitch!
