Prior to tonight’s game I stopped off for practice at the MSOE Kern Center. When I found out that only
Johan Alm, Jimmy Oligny, and Magnus Hellberg were there (it was an optional practice) I decided it be best to turn back to the locker room and hear from the rest of the team.
First things first there are some small notes:
Ian White will not be with the team again today as he remains with family following the passing of his grandmother. Anthony Bitetto was a scratch in today’s Nashville Predators game and will therefore not be with the Admirals tonight either.
I caught up with
Dean Evason, Rich Clune, Mike Liambas, and Kevin Fiala. Here is what they had to say ahead of tonight’s game against the Iowa Wild.
