Thrashers Activate Nik Antropov; Assign Stapleton to Chicago

The Atlanta Thrashers have activated forward Nik Antropov from Injured Reserve and have reassigned forward Tim Stapleton to the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League, according to General Manager Rick Dudley.

Antropov, 30, has appeared in 35 games this season and has earned 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists), which includes four multiple-point games. He is tied for third on the team with four power play goals.

Antropov, 6-6, 245-pounds, has recorded 389 points (163 goals, 226 assists) in 638 NHL games with Toronto (2001-02 to 2008-09), the New York Rangers (2008-09) and Thrashers (2009-10 to 2010-11).

The Ust-Kamengorsk, Kazakhstan, native is in his second season with the Thrashers and was acquired by the team as a free agent on July 2, 2009.

Stapleton, 28, has seen action in 10 games with Atlanta this season after being signed as an unrestricted free agent on Nov. 30. His NHL totals include three goals in 20 career games with Atlanta (2009-10 to 2010-11) and Toronto (2008-09). Stapleton added a shootout goal in a Thrashers 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Dec. 30.

Prior to joining the Thrashers, the 5-9, 180-pound center registered 15 points (eight goals, seven assists) in 20 games this season with the San Antonio Rampage (AHL). He has earned 158 points (66 goals, 92 assists) in 172 career games over four AHL seasons with Portland (2005-06), Toronto (2008-09), Chicago (2009-10) and San Antonio.

The Forest Park, Illinois, native was previously acquired by the Thrashers with Pavel Kubina from Toronto for Garnet Exelby and Colin Stuart on July 1, 2009.
