Oystrick, a 2007 AHL All-Rookie defenseman, scored the first goal of the game as the Wolves defeated the Penguins four games to two to win their second AHL title and first since 2002.
Oystick finished the playoffs with three goals and eight assists. In the regular season, he posted 15 goals with 23 helpers.
Fretter saw limited action during the regular season with the Wolves, compiling a goal and three assists in eight games. He also saw time with the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers and ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators this season.
The Wolves are the top development team of the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers.
