Bulmer ready to help AHL team earn playoff birth

Brett Bulmer will be in the Houston Aeros line up this weekend as the American Hockey League team pushes for a playoff spot.

Bulmer was assigned to the Aeros by the Minnesota Wild after his season came to an end with the Kelowna Rockets.

Aeros General Manager Jim Mill says Bulmer will be a welcome addition to his team.

"He (Bulmer) was huge in last years Calder Cup playoff run. He came in as a junior player and did a great job for us. He is a key part of our future, and now that his junior season is over, he is a key part of our present".

Bulmer spent the playoffs with the Aeros last season, playing in eight games.

"Brett's success in the NHL and the American Hockey League will be dictated by what he does. This kid is a great prospect and he has a bright future ahead of him", Mill added.

The 19 year-old was a second round NHL pick of the Minnesota Wild in 2010.

Glad to hear that Severson made the Under 18's, do you think that Scissons injury had anything to do with him not making it?? This may hurt his ranking at draft time!! Bulmer - well good luck!!
