K-Wings add scoring touch in Detulleo

The Kalamazoo Wings have acquired forward Glenn Detulleo from the Quad City Mallards for forward Brett Pilkington and defenseman Mathieu Wathier.

An iron man for the Quad City Mallards during the 2005-06 season, Detulleo will bring dependability and a scoring touch to the K-Wings lineup. A six-year pro, Detulleo set a career high last season in both assists (53) and points (70).

“He (Detulleo) has the ability to create scoring opportunities for everyone around him,” said Kalamazoo GM Paul Pickard. “Defensively, we have been sound all season and given Glenn’s heart and intensity for the game will provide us with even more of an offensive arsenal.”

This season, the native of Timmins, Ontario, has been the Mallards' second most productive offensive weapon (13 points) and was leading the team with 11 assists. Detulleo started the year on a high note, tallying a point in six straight games, including scoring the game-winner for Quad City’s first victory of the season against Bloomington on Oct. 26.

Detulleo will make his K-Wings debut this Wednesday night as Kalamazoo starts a home-and-home series against the Port Huron Flags.
