The San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League assigned center Justin Bernhardt to the Las Vegas Wranglers Wednesday.

The 21-year-old Yorkton, Saskatchewan, native will fill the void at center left by Chris Neiszner's call-up to Austin.

In six seasons in the Western Hockey League, Bernhardt accumulated 242 points in 307 games with Regina, Kelowna and Prince Albert. Last season Bernhardt scored a team high 35 goals with 57 assists for the Prince Albert Raiders.

Berhardt has appeared in three games with the Rampage this season, picking up five penalty minutes and zero points.

Bernhardt will join the Wranglers for the three-game home stand against the Alaska Aces this weekend, which starts at 7:05 p.m. Thursday.

Gassed: An apparent acid spill near the loading dock of the Orleans Arena Wednesday morning filled the area with toxic fumes that forced the Wranglers to cancel practice this morning. Wranglers staffers were also prevented from entering their offices. The team hopes to return to the ice later in the day.

Rotating roster: The ECHL suspended Alaska forwards Chris Morehouse and Lance Galbraith for actions against Victoria on Monday. Morehouse will miss Thursday's game while Galbraith will miss the the entire series with the Wranglers this weekend.

The Aces also activated forwarded Brett Hemingway off the injured reserve Wednesday, while placing defenseman B.J. Crum on the three-day IR.

Also on Wednesday, the Wranglers activated forward Jeff Hazelwood off the IR and placed forward Greg Collins on the seven-day IR.
