Boise, Idaho – The Idaho Steelheads announced today that forward Tyler Shelast has been loaned to the American Hockey League’s Hamilton Bulldogs via the Dallas Stars. Shelast is currently under contract with Dallas, Idaho’s NHL affiliate.
The 24-year-old Shelast began the 2008-09 season with Hamilton, playing in three games, before being reassigned to the Steelheads by Dallas. In 23 games with Idaho, the 6-1, 205-pound rookie has scored 7 goals and 7 assists for 14 points, and racked up 21 penalty minutes.
The Steelheads play the second game of a two-game set in Bakersfield on Saturday. Idaho (25-14-3) scored four unanswered goals and battled back from a three-goal deficit to defeat the Condors (14-26-6) 4-3 last night at the Rabobank Arena. They travel to Stockton to take on the Thunder on Monday.
