Metro rookie defenseman Gierman earns weekend call-up to NAHL’s Generals

FRASER, Mich. – The Metro Jets take to the road this weekend to play the Southern Tier Xpress and Pittsburgh Vengeance, but will be without one of their top defensemen.

Rookie Kyle Gierman has been called up to the NAHL’s Northeast Generals and will be in the lineup as the Generals play the Philadelphia Rebels Friday night and New Jersey Titans on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

Gierman, an 18-year-old out of Shelby Township, Mich., has compiled 11 goals and 35 points in 40 games for Metro.

He signed an NAHL tender agreement with Northeast back in November and will join former Jets forward and NA3HL MVP Louis Boudon with the Generals.
