ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland Growlers, ECHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced today that forwards Orrin Centazzo and Zach Solow have been assigned to the club by the Toronto Marlies (AHL).
Centazzo, a 22-year-old Marwayne, Alberta native, has played 34 regular season contests with the Growlers this season and scored 18 goals and added 22 assists for 40 points. During his time with the Marlies, he also featured in six games at the AHL level.
As a rookie, Centazzo nabbed 51 points in 51 appearances for Newfoundland last season, good for third on the team in that department, before adding another 15 points in the postseason and playing a key role in the Growlers run to the Eastern Conference Final.
Solow, a 24-year-old Naples, Florida native, has played 41 regular season contests with the Growlers this season and scored 14 goals and added 28 assists for 42 points. During his time with the Marlies, he also featured in four games at the AHL level.
Last season, Solow played an integral role on the Florida Everblades team which eliminated the Growlers in the Eastern Conference Final before going on to hoist the Kelly Cup. Solow notched 18 points in 19 postseason appearances for Florida last spring.
Newfoundland return to action midweek as they open a three-game series on the road against the Trois-Rivières Lions on Wednesday night.
