Muskegon bulks up with Smyth, Insana back

Adam Smyth has been assigned to the Muskgon Fury, while defenseman Jon Insana has returned to Muskegon following a stint in the AHL.

Under NHL contract with Atlanta, Smyth, a utility player, is expected to make his Fury debut tomorrow night in Bloomington. He has played the last two seasons in the ECHL with the Gwinnett Gladiators and has also enjoyed brief stints in the AHL with the Chicago Wolves.

Having coached Smyth when he first broke into the pro game in 2003-2004 when he was the helm of the Port Huron Beacons, Fury coach Bruce Ramsay is aware of Smyth’s value.

"Adam is exactly the kind of player that we have been looking for to complete our roster at this stage of the season," said Ramsay. "He is a big, strong, rugged presence who will inject that tough, physical presence in our lineup while at the same time making significant contributions to the success of our team in other important areas as well. We are looking forward to having him on board and in our lineup.”

Insana is back with the Fury after he was an invitee to the Wolves' training camp, earning a roster berth for the club on opening night.
