Gladiators trade Fritsch to Vegas

DULUTH -- The Gwinnett Gladiators dealt defenseman Jamie Fritsch to the Las Vegas Wranglers for financial considerations Thursday.

Fritsch had five points in 48 games as a rookie for the Gladiators last season and was called up to the American Hockey League for a two-game stint with Norfolk.

The 25-year-old Maryland native played four seasons at New Hampshire before making his professional debut with the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers following his senior season in 2008-09.
