McNiven to ECHL's Brampton Beast and Étienne Marcoux called up to Laval. The Rocket don't play before Friday, meanwhile, Brampton is playing on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I don't think they'll let McNiven play one game on Wednesday and call him up to back up Lindgren on Friday. I think he'll stay and play a few games. He needs to see some action. Meanwhile Marcoux, who has been playing many games, will get some practice time with Laval and will most probably be the back up next Friday and Saturday. Also, being on a two-way AHL/ECHL deal, Marcoux will get paid his AHL salary for the amount of time he spends with Laval.
