Teams are posting videos on Twitter of players outside of their training facilities giving warm greetings to fans and letting fans know what’s to come this upcoming season. Be sure to follow me on Twitter
to see player news and some of the best greetings.
With that being said, some news from around the league includes an updated look for the Fargo Force
. With their new logo resembling something eerily similar to another hockey team, the Tampa Bay Lightning
, the logo will be available for purchase on new merchandise come October 11 and on team jerseys this fall.
The RoughRiders will also have a new look as Dmitri Deryabin and Troy Kobryn will be moving on to the next level.
Deryabin will be heading to play with the Dinamo Minsk
of the KHL and will look to make an immediate impact. When asked about the move, Head Coach and Team President Mark Carlson
had some very kind words to say. “Dima developed very nicely last season in the United States Hockey League. The RoughRiders organization is very happy for him and very proud of him.”
Kobryn is heading to Merrimack College
where he will look to battle for a starting goaltender position for the 2019-20 season. “We are very happy for Troy. He has worked very hard for this opportunity and we wish him all the best at Merrimack College”, said coach Carlson
