The Colorado Eagles head into this weekend ready to face the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs at the Budweiser Event Center with back-to-back games Friday and Saturday for the Northern Conference Semi-finals. The format will be 2-3-2.
The Central Hockey League set a deadline for the playoff rosters allowing each team to have 19 players on the bench, in addition to two amateur players, which may be added at any time. These are the times the coach staff must make tough decisions.
Colorado Eagles reactivated Alex Penner from I.R. and declared him an unrestricted free agent this week. The X-man was known for his fighting and his famous final X when finished. Alex Penner was not only an enforcer, but he scored goals for his team as well. He will be missed. You never know what coach has up his sleeve for our next surprise.
If you haven’t picked up your tickets yet, purchase them now, the Colorado Eagles always have a sell out and you do not want to miss seeing the Eagles squash the Mudbugs on home ice. Season ticket holders need to use the Round B tickets.
Don't worry about no muscle on the ice, Mario Joly was reinstated from I.R. and we still have Jason Beatty, Jay Birnie, Fraser Filipic, Ryan Tobler, oh nevermind, you get the drift. They are ALL tough guys.
