Fort Wayne-native Blake Siebenaler has been sent from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League to Wheeling of the ECHL. That means he could face the Komets at Wheeling, West Virginia, on Sunday.
Siebenaler, a defenseman, was a third-round draft pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2014. He was recently acquired by the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He hasn’t previously played below the AHL level.
