The Rapid City Rush announced Wednesday that goaltender Dave Tendeck is returning to the Black Hills from the Tucson Roadrunners after being reassigned by the Arizona Coyotes.
Tendeck, a 21-year-old former NHL Entry Draft pick, was called up to Tucson on Oct. 26 and did not appear in any games but dressed as its backup netminder.
The Rush's No. 1 goalie, who spent training camp with the Roadrunners, opened the regular season with the Rush and went 1-1-0 with a 3.01 goals-against average a .918 save percentage.
Rapid City center Ryan Valentini was also placed on injured reserve.
The Rush return to action Friday on the road against the Utah Grizzlies.
