With a mere 4 games remaining in the 08/09 regular season, the Lube Kings HC is in full post season preparation mode. Season ticket holders are reminded to pick up their playoff packages at the box office.
In a recent contest versus the GOBS on Feb 25, veteran blue-liner Russ Audette suffered a serious injury to his knee after falling awkwardly behind his own net. The somber Audette was later quoted as saying “You guys are going to have to win it without me….” The rest of the defence corps has since been put on notice to expect more ice time.
Other notable injuries this year included Ryan Wood who suffered a broken ankle in a freak accident early on in the season at the Lube Kings dry-land training facility. Expectations are also high for a late season comeback from crowd favorite and highly touted off season acquisition Marty Bruyere.
