Wilson Head Shot/Lake Erie Monsters

The Denver Cutthroats announced today they have assigned forwards Jamie MacQueen and Ben Wilson from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.

Both MacQueen (muh-KWEEN) and Wilson are set to join the Cutthroats in training camp this week, in time for the team’s season opening weekend on Friday and Saturday.

MacQueen, 24, appeared in five games last season for Lake Erie after completing a four-year career at Bemidji State University where he tallied 24 goals and 23 assists in 147 games. The 6-foot-1, 185 pound product of London, Ontario began the preseason in camp with the Monsters.

“Both Jamie and Ben are good, young, blue-collar forwards that we’re happy to add to the mix,” said Cutthroats Head Coach Derek Armstrong. “We want to be a team that works hard every night for three periods, and both of them fit the mold of the kind of team we’re building here.”

The 21-year-old Wilson is entering his second stint in the Central Hockey League after spending 10 games last season with the Allen Americans, combined with his 30 games in the AHL with Lake Erie. The 6-foot, 180-pound Wilson appeared in two games this season for the Monsters, registering an assist. The Calgary, Alberta native spent the final two years of his junior career (2009-11) in the Western Hockey League, playing 138 games for the Calgary Hitmen.

The Cutthroats begin their inaugural campaign on Friday and Saturday against the visiting Missouri Mavericks. Puck drop is set for 7:05 PM MST both nights.
