The Las Vegas Wranglers' roster continues to fill up as the 2009-10 season approaches.

The Wranglers announced Friday that they have agreed to terms with forward Dan Riedel. Las Vegas acquired Riedel from the Dayton Bombers in February in exchange for future considerations.

The 24-year-old Rochester Hills, Mich. native notched 11 points in 17 regular season games with the Wranglers. Riedel played a large role in the Wranglers run to the conference finals as he posted 14 points in 17 postseason contests.

Prior to turning pro, Riedel played alongside Wranglers forward Adam Miller at Ferris State University.

The Wranglers also traded enforcer Tim Spencer Friday in exchange for Elmira Jackals defenseman Craig Switzer.

Spencer, who never backed away from a fight, posted eight points in 51 games last season while leading the team with 196 penalty minutes.

Switzer, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound Peachland, British Columbia native, recorded 17 points and 50 penalty minutes in 64 games with Elmira last season. The 24-year-old was selected in the ninth round (No. 275) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators prior to spending four seasons at the University of New Hampshire.
