NC’s Downing to Missouri: late Monday notes

A few notes from the afternoon:

South Carolina (ECHL) traded New Canaan’s Jack Downing to the (Independence) Missouri Mavericks for a package including former Sound Tigers ATO Guy Leboeuf. Downing had seven points in 16 games for the Stingrays.

The ECHL transactions also have Ty Wishart recalled to Binghamton. Not that we’ve got any insight, but that could lend credence to the report yesterday (see the liveblog) that he could be going overseas. (Or it could just mean he’s going up. We’ll see.) He’s on an AHL contract.

Far afield, the Charlotte Checkers announced a tentative deal to go back to their old barn if it gets an upgrade.
