Former IceCat Jamie Thompson has been signed by Danbury of the UHL. If youíre interested seeing him play again, heíll only be 2 hours down the road.
On that note, while weíre waiting for the AHL Schedules to come out, the schedules are out for the ECHL and UHL. At the expense of sounding like this is some sort of push for those leagues in Worcester, which it is not; Iím suggesting everyone check out a game or two in each league. When all the chatter came up last year about either of those leagues coming here, I was amazed at how many people said they had never seen them. Without 40+ home dates this season, thereís a lot of time to check out them out. My suggestion would be to consider Reading and/or Trenton in the ECHL and Danbury and/or Glens Falls (Adirondack) in the UHL. Iíve been to 3 of those places and have plan on hitting the 4th (Reading) this year. If youíre interested, send me e-mail and Iíll gladly send you info on directions, hotels and local restaurants. If youíre going to Danbury, you donít have to worry about the hotel, and I know plenty of people there to send you looking for when you get to the arena.
