The Las Vegas Wranglers acquired center John Armstrong in a trade with the Kalamazoo Wings and re-signed free agent forward Phillip Ischi. Armstrong, 25, has 177 games of American Hockey league experience and was a third-round draft pick of the Calgary Flames in 2006. The Wranglers acquired Armstrong in exchange for future considerations.
Ischi, 27 has been with the Wranglers twice before. He was in Las Vegas in 2010-11 and again in 2011-12. Both Armstrong and Ischi will be in the lineup Friday when the Wranglers host Bakersfield at the Orleans Arena. The team just completed a nine-game road trip which saw Las Vegas go 3-6.
