NEW-LOOK MARKSMEN TAKE THE ICE TONIGHT
It’s been two weeks since the Marksmen last played at home, but the roster has undergone a minor makeover, especially defensively.
With Stefano Durante on the shelf for two more weeks at a minimum, the Marksmen have signed G Brent Moran and G Matt Williams has started the last three games for the Marksmen. Moran is a former 4th-round NHL Entry Draft selection of the Dallas Stars.
On the blue line, the Marksmen have added D Zack Hoffman. Hoffman is a product of Saint Mary’s University in Canada who is forgoing his second semester of collegiate play to turn pro.
The Marksmen also dealt Bryce Ferrell to the Huntsville Havoc yesterday in exchange for Tommy Besinger. Besinger has been waived by the ECHL’s Worcester Railers and while he is out of the projected lineup this evening, his Marksmen debut could come as soon as tomorrow.
STOPPING THE SLIDE
Fayetteville is at its lowest seeding in the standings this season at sixth place in the league. The Marksmen are a point back of Roanoke for fifth after the Rail Yard Dawgs scored a massive 10-1 win over Macon last night.
While things may sound grim from a standings perspective, the Marksmen are one point behind fifth place, three points out of fourth place and only four points out of third place.
With the playoff picture starting to clear up, home ice advantage could be a major factor in a deep playoff run for any of the teams running in the middle of the pack behind Knoxville and Huntsville.
