San Antonio Rampage General Manager Brad Treliving today announced that the American Hockey League (AHL) club has released defenseman Jimmy Sharrow from his professional try-out (PTO) contract.
Sharrow, 25, signed a PTO with the Rampage on Feb. 19 and tallied one assist and a plus-1 rating in one appearance. Prior to joining the Rampage, he had appeared in 40 games in 2009-10 with the Victoria Salmon Kings (ECHL), registering 34 points (10g, 24a) and 29 penalty minutes. He began the season with the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL), compiling two points (1g, 1a) in four games, and recorded a plus-1 rating in one game with the Manitoba Moose (AHL).
In 2008-09, the Framingham, Massachusetts native totaled 14 points (4g, 10a) in 67 games with Manitoba and the Rockford IceHogs (AHL) after being traded by the Vancouver Canucks (NHL) to the Chicago Blackhawks (NHL) on Dec. 9, 2008.
The 6-foot-2, 198-pound blueliner has amassed 74 points (15g, 59a) and 127 penalty minutes in 202 career AHL contests with Manitoba, Rockford, Chicago and San Antonio.
Sharrow was originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the fourth round, 110th overall, of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
The Rampage will complete their 14-game road trip with a stop in Michigan this Wednesday for a 6 p.m. (CDT) matchup with the Grand Rapids Griffins at the Van Andel Arena.
