Castro, Kardashev in NAHL

Former Tri-City players Cody Castro and Nikita Kardashev have found homes with teams in the North American Hockey League (Junior A).

Castro, who plays forward and defense, recently joined the Fresno Monsters. He has played in one game.

"Cody brings a ton of experience and leadership that this young team will need," said Monsters coach Eric Ballard earlier this week.

Kardashev left the Tri-Cities on Wednesday to join the Corpus Christi IceRays. The Belarus defenseman is expected to play today at Wichita Falls.

Russian goaltender Alex Pechurskiy, who got caught up in the Americans' overage log jam, still is looking for a team to play for.
