ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have announced the following transactions:

  • Goaltender Martin Ouellette has been recalled by the Syracuse Crunch, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ouellette, 26, heads up to Syracuse for the second time this season. The fifth-year pro has appeared in 15 games with Orlando this season and sports a 9-5-1 record with a 3.06 goals-against average, a .906 save percentage and one shutout.

  • Goaltender Charlie Millen has been acquired from the Reading Royals in exchange for future considerations.

Millen, 26, has appeared in one ECHL game this season for the Worcester Railers. He has also appeared in 31 games with the Birmingham Bulls of the Southern Professional Hockey League, where he has posted a 17-12-1 record along with a 3.62 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound netminder joins the Solar Bears for the second time in his career after previously being added to the roster during the 2016-17 season – Millen did not see game action in his previous stint with Orlando.

Prior to turning pro, the native of Peterborough, Ontario played for Laurentian University. In 41 career games for the Voyageurs, Millen posted a 12-22-0 record with 4.04 goals-against average and .888 save percentage.

  • Forward Justin Kea has been acquired from the Fort Wayne Komets. Kea replaces Aidan Muir as part of the Dec. 18 between the Solar Bears and Komets after Muir failed his physical due to a hockey-related injury. Orlando has subsequently traded Kea to the Toledo Walleye for two future considerations.
  • Goaltender Bobby Fowler has been added as an emergency backup goaltender ahead of tonight’s 7 p.m. road game against the Florida Everblades at Hertz Arena.
