Aeros Win, Cal Cutterbuck Gets Called Up
Win some, lose some. That seems to be the story with the Aeros season.
For instance, the Aeros won game number one Friday night, defeating the San Antonio Rampage 6-5 in a shootout. The loss comes in terms of another player. But unlike Roman Voloshenko, who split to go home to Russia, right winger Cal Clutterbuck, a 19-year old rookie, got the call to report to the big club in Minneapolis. It looks like Clutterbuck was called up as a short-term insurance policy because of injuries, and he may be returning to Houston in a couple of weeks.
When asked why Clutterbuck got the call, and not some of the more experienced players, Wild assistant GM Tom Lynn told the Minnesota media, “We called Kevin [Constantine, Aeros coach] and asked him who the hardest working player had been over the last few games. Kevin said it was Clutterbuck.”
The Aeros play San Antonio twice this coming weekend. There’s a rematch in San Antonio on Saturday, then a Sunday afternoon battle here at Toyota Center. – John Royal
