IceMen Defensemen Lepine Called Up By Binghamton
Captain Guillaume Lepine, a cornerstone of the Evansville IceMen roster this season, is making his way to Binghamton after being called up by the Senators.
This isn't Lepine's first go-round with the Senators after spending with the team during an overseas trip to France in the preseason. He was named captain upon his return to Evansville.
The 27-year-old Montreal, Quebec native appeared in all 35 games this season, racking up 12 assists, and two multi-point games during that time. He also compiled 163 penalty minutes, the sixth most in franchise history. As of this writing, the team has yet to name a replacement captain.
In response, the IceMen are expected to add Defenseman, Bo Driscoll from the Knoxville Ice Bears of the SPHL for tonight's game at Fort Wayne. A rookie out of Framingham State University, Driscoll played 16 games with the Ice Bears, where he dished out three assists.
The IceMen are on the road tonight, taking on the Komets in Fort Wayne, and will return to the Ford Center Saturday night to host the Cincinnati Cyclones for Star Night. Both games will be available on ESPN Evansville 105.3, and espnevansville.com with coverage beginning at 6:45pm Friday, and 7pm on Saturday.
The IceMen will host the Cyclones again on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday). The team will offer upper bowl tickets for just $5 with the Evansville Courier & Press Front Page Fan Ad, as well as treat fans to $1 soft drinks and $1 popcorn.
Tickets are on sale now for all games including Star Wars Night at the Ford Center Box Office Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m and after noon on game days.
