CHEERS, WHOOTS, WHISTLING
Good Afternoon all and thanks for joining us here this afternoon.
As you all know last season was a success and we finally had all the pieces in play to help us achieve that goal. Well This past month we lost a huge key to our puzzle with the departure of Chris Petrock. Petrock was the man who got us by the Rage in game 7 to move to the finals. Petrock has moved on as GM of the Red Deer Bandits formerly the Nashville Thunder.
Petrock was a great teammate,linemate and citizen here in Fort St John and had a excellent two seasons in FSJ. Petrock will go down as one of the greatest players to play in FSJ and the UFHL.
We look forward to playing his team this season and finding that piece that we lost. With Chris moving on we recieved sniper Mike Cirianni in his place.
Well good look to Chris and his career in Red Deer
GM Carter with more
This past off season in the UFHL was very busy and is really busy as season six approaches.
Training camp is now open and I know alot of you are seeing alot more and different players are around.
This past off season the league announced the UFMHL. The UFMHL is a minor league system that we help us develope our younger players that are looking for UFHL stardom.
With that being said I would like to introduce the Honolulu Sharks as our affiliate team. We will look to this team for the right pieces for our team. Send players down that arent performing and so on.
as Carter says the Sharks a blanket drops revealing the SHARKS logo.
The season should be starting soon, many inter squad games will be played so come watch the future of the Huskies and get to know the players. Captains, Assistants and final rosters will be released soon.
We have big things for opening game as well so get your tickets soon as we are almost sold out.
Also tomorrow we will be holding an event in the lobby were you can get your picture with the cup and get autographs from players that were on the cup winning team.
So good day all and stayed tuned for more.
