WHEELING, WV- The Wheeling Nailers, proud ECHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins, have announced a transaction, which takes effect immediately. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have loaned forward Troy Josephs to Wheeling.

Troy had a strong first year offensively, amassing 16 goals, 20 assists, and 36 points in 43 games with Wheeling. His highlight game of last season took place on February 2nd, when he netted his first career hat trick in a 7-3 home win against the Indy Fuel.
