Rochester Report: Fitzpatrick named team's Man of the Year, Ellerby is Amerks' Player of the Month, Beaudry called up

 

Americans' veteran defenseman (and local native) Rory Fitzpatrick was presented with the American Specialty/AHL Man of the Year award at a luncheon Wednesday at Monroe Golf Club in Rochester.

 

Also honored was rookie defenseman Keaton Ellerby, named the Americans' Player of the Month after recording three goals and six points in March.

 

In other Amerks' news, the club recalled Rapid City Rush (CHL) goaltender Miguel Beaudry. No, I unfortunately hadn't heard of him yet either, but perhaps his actions will speak for him:

 


 

From 2004-05, San Angelo Saints goalie Scott Reid vs. New Mexico Scorpions Beaudry #33 in blue; Panther colors, no less. Bit of a hellcat for a smallish guy, eh?
