The Atlanta Thrashers have reassigned center JASON KROG to the Chicago Wolves.
The Fernie, British Columbia, native appeared in 25 games for Chicago earlier this season, averaging over two points per game in those contests before being recalled by the Thrashers on Dec. 12. KROG recorded three assists and four points in 14 outings with Atlanta, his first National Hockey League action since the end of the 2003-04 season, before being claimed on waivers by the New York Rangers on Jan. 12. He tallied two goals in nine matchups with the Rangers before being re-claimed by Atlanta today.
