Thrashers Recall Jim Slater and Brett Sterling From Chicago

The Atlanta Thrashers have recalled forwards Jim Slater and Brett Sterling from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League, according to Executive Vice President, General Manager and Head Coach Don Waddell.

Slater, 25, was assigned to the Wolves for conditioning on Jan. 16 after missing nine games with a lower-body injury, dating back to Dec. 29. He appeared in three games, earning a plus-one rating, during his assignment with the Wolves. The 6-0, 195-pound center has appeared in 38 games for the Thrashers this season, recording five assists and 25 penalty minutes.

The Petoskey, Mich. native has registered 44 points (15 goals, 29 assists) in 183 NHL games with the Thrashers since his rookie season of 2005-06. He was selected by the Thrashers in the first round, 30th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

Sterling, 23, has recorded 38 points (22 goals, 16 assists) and a plus-four rating in 34 games with the Wolves this season and was recently named to the starting lineup of the 2008 AHL All-Star Classic. The 5-7, 180-pound left wing also appeared in 10 games for the Thrashers this season, recording three points (one goal, two assists), prior to being reassigned to the Wolves on Nov. 10.

The Los Angeles, Calif. native led the AHL with 55 goals during his first professional season in 2006-07 and was honored with the league’s Dudley “Red” Garrett Award as the Rookie of the Year. Sterling was drafted by the Thrashers in the fifth round, 145th overall, of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
