ECHL News: Pavel Gogolev Returns to the NL Growlers

NL Growlers

As many suspected, the Newfoundland Growlers have been assigned Pavel Gogolev from the Toronto Marlies. Gogo will suit up in black & gold tonight as the team faces Reading Royals for the first in a set of three at the Mary Brown’s Centre. The Growlers remain at home for another three games, where they will play against the Adirondack Thunder.

The Growlers released a statement that read:

The Newfoundland Growlers, ECHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced today that forward Pavel Gogolev has signed a Standard Player Contract (SPC) with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies and has been reassigned to the Growlers. 

Gogolev, a 23-year-old Moscow, Russia native, has had a whirlwind season in 2022-23. In his initial stint with the Growlers this season, Gogolev emerged as a top-line threat for Newfoundland, recording 21 goals and 27 assists for 48 points in just 33 games before being traded to the Chicago Blackhawks on Feb. 27 as a part of the deal that saw the Toronto Maple Leafs acquire Sam Lafferty and Jake McCabe. 

He was reassigned to Chicago’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs, where he recorded his first AHL goal of the season in just two games played. 

On March 8, Gogolev was released from his NHL contract with the Blackhawks, making him a free agent and allowing him to re-sign with the Marlies. 

Gogolev is expected to be in the Growlers’ lineup tonight. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 pm. Tickets are available now at nlgrowlers.com/tickets.

Welcome back, Gogo!
