While everyone is caught up in NHL fever, it is very important to remember the hockey clubs have affiliates in the American Hockey League and East Coast Hockey Leagues. The affiliates are where the draftee’s, rookie’s, and stars of tomorrow are playing. Who knows? Eventually some of them may end up playing for the Florida Panthers in Sunrise, or another National Hockey League team.
The Rampage played a hockey game earlier tonight, and while the desired outcome was not achieved… they are grooming these players for their shot at a roster spot. The Lake Erie Monsters won 5-1, and will play again tomorrow night. Let’s hope for a better outcome.
Shots on goal for the Monsters were 25 to the Rampage’s 29.
