Cutthroats forward AJ Gale sent to Lake Erie

Hector Acevedo, Denver Cutthroats

AJ Gale had one dream come true last week: he met Joe Sakic. Another dream came true today: he has been sent to Cleveland to join the Lake Erie Monsters' line up.

Gale has been a key player in the Denver Cutthroats' offense this season, leading the team (and second in CHL) in scoring with 66 points (31g, 35a) in 52 games. His line—along with Brad Smyth and Troy Schwab—have produced 40% of the team's collective 460 points so far this season. Losing him will be a huge hit to the Fish, but gaining him will give the Monsters a big boost in scoring.

The 2012-2013 sesaon is Gale's 4th year in professional hockey, previously playing one season in Denmark for Copenhagen Hockey and two in the CHL for the Texas Brahmas and Wichita Thunder. He began his hockey career in his hometown of Nanaimo, BC, with the Nanaimo Clippers of the BCHL.

Gale becomes the ninth player to have spent time with both the Cutthroats and the Monsters, and joins teammates Gabriel Beaupre, Joel Chouinard (live snake, AJ), Jamie MacQueen, Kent Patterson, Markus Lauridsen and Dean Strong currently with the AHL affiliate. Technically, Gale is on a PTO with the Monsters as his contract is only with the Cutthroats, but if he performs as expected, that should change soon.

The Monsters face off with the Milwaukee Admirals tomorrow night at 7:00 pm ET, and the Cutthroats take on the Quad City Mallards Friday at 7:05 pm MT. Both are home games.
