Best guess is Friday night’s injury against the Portland Pirates that took down forward Andres Thuresson and that Head Coach Ken Gernander spoke of in his post-game press conference Saturday night and that caused him to miss Saturday’s game against Springfield must require more down time than originally expected.
Here’s the official release:
WHALE RECALL JEFF PROUGH FROM GREENVILLE
