Gylling played all of last season with the Tomahawks and was the team's leading point scorer. In 57 games he scored 16 goals, 29 assists, 45 points, was a plus 5, and had 49 penalty minutes.
Cody was drafted by the USHL's Fargo Force in the 6th round of this years draft.
The Johnstown Tomahawks own Gylling's NAHL rights, which means if he plans to play in the NAHL it will be back with Johnstown, unless the team makes a trade sending his rights to another team.
Being released this early in the week makes it a possibility that Gylling could rejoin the Tomahawks' this weekend in time for the season opener.
With a tight group of players on this years roster, Cody wouldn't just be guaranteed a spot on the roster, he'd have to earn it. Plus if Gylling does return to Johnstown, that would put the roster at 26, forcing the team to make a roster move to get it back down to the mandatory 25-man roster.
As the news breaks we'll keep you update. If Gylling does return to Johnstown, you then have to think, all the teams in the North, and possibly in the league, will fear Johnstown's fire power even more.
LET'S GO 'HAWKS!
