Icemen Gets NHL Call Up
The Evansville Icemen season hasn't turned out quite like planned, but one player has reason to celebrate. Goalkeeper Chris Driedger was recalled by the NHL's Ottawa Senators. This is the second time the Senators have called up Driedger, the first being February 17th.
Driedger is expected to play tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh.
With Driedger recalled, the Icemen have signed Alex Vazzano to fill his roster spot. Vazzano (which is an awesome hockey name, ha!) will join the Icemen for their game Friday against the Florida Everblades.
Although the season is winding down, there is still time for you to check out the Icemen! Here are some options for you for the upcoming Home games:
Friday’s game will also be Faith Night, where fans can enjoy a post-game concert with the band Abandon. The first 1,000 fans 12 & under will receive a free youth jersey from TRCI.
