Monarchs send down Niederberger, sign pair of defensemen

The Manchester Monarchs have reassigned goaltender Mathias Niederberger to the ECHL's Ontario (Calif.) Reign, the team announced on Tuesday.

In addition, the Monarchs signed defenseman Ben Danford to an amateur tryout agreement and defenseman Brendan Ellis to a professional tryout agreement.

Niederberger, 21, appeared in six games with the Monarchs since his recall in January, and collected a 1-1-1 record with a 2.92 goals-against-average, and a .887 save percentage.

Danford, 24, finished his senior season at Canisius College with five goals and 22 assists for 27 points and 41 penalty minutes this season. The 6-foot, 185-pound native of Stillwater, Minn., led all defensemen at Canisius College in points each of his four years.

Ellis, 25, has appeared in three games with the ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays and collected one assist and four penalty minutes. He completed his final season at Merrimack College with 10 points (0-10-10) and 38 penalty minutes in 24 games this season.

The Monarchs are prepping for a two-game weekend. They host Worcester on Friday night, then travel to Lewiston, Maine, on Saturday for a game against the Portland Pirates.
