Francois Lemay to play with the Allen Americans

Making the Cut 2009 alumni will travel to NYTEX tonight

I don't know whose face will have a bigger smile on it tonight - Cody Daniel or Francois Lemay. Lemay received a call from Dwight Mullins to come to the Americans' practice this morning at the Allen Events Center.

Lemay thought he did pretty well and apparently so did Mullins as Francois will back up Chris Whitley in tonight's tilt with the Texas Brahmas at the NYTEX Sports Centre. He will wear the #35.

After Matt Climie was called up to the NHL's Dallas Stars to take an ailing Marty Turco's place, the Texas Stars (AHL) called up Charlie Effinger, the Allen Americans' number one goalie. With Chris Whitley getting the start tonight for the Americans, Lemay gets his spot on the pine in relief.

The Americans will leave Allen at 4:00pm and should be arriving at NYTEX between 4:45 and 5:00pm.
