SAN ANTONIO (December 7, 2012) – San Antonio Rampage General Manager Mike Santos announced today that the American Hockey League (AHL) club has signed defenseman Mike Mottau and forward Jonathan Sim to professional try-outs (PTO). 

Mottau, 34, played the last five seasons in the National Hockey League, splitting time between the New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders and Boston Bruins. The Quincy, Mass., native has totaled 313 NHL games throughout his career, recording seven goals and 51 assists from the blueline. Last year, Mottau tallied two assists in 29 games with the Islanders and also played six games with the Bruins. The 6-foot, 193-pound defenseman has eight years of experience (2000-07) in the American Hockey League. In his time in the AHL, he recorded 279 points (47 goals, 232 assists) in 463 games.

Sim, 35, brings nearly 500 games of NHL experience to the Rampage roster. The New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, native has played in 469 NHL games, recording 75 goals and 64 assists. Sim has played for eight different NHL teams, including the Florida Panthers in 2005-06, with his most productive campaign coming in the 2006-07 season with the Atlanta Thrashers where he tallied 17 goals and 12 assists in 77 games. Sim has also totaled 172 games in the AHL, averaging just shy of a point per game (94 goals, 77 assists, 171 points). The 5-foot-10, 190-pound winger spent the last two years playing overseas in Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany. 

The Rampage wrapped up their longest road trip to date on Wednesday, posting a 4-1-0-0 record. The team returns home tomorrow (Saturday) for the first of a two-game set against the Oklahoma City Barons. The game will also mark the 9th annual Salute to the Badges Night, with local firefighters and law enforcement officers being honored throughout the game. Individual, and season, tickets start at $10 and can be purchased by calling a Rampage representative at 210.444.5554 or online at sarampage.com.
