The team report’s for training camp at the Forest Lake Sports Center on Tuesday, September 5 for their first organized event. Mullets Head Coach and General Manager Chris Walby is excited about the season getting under way.
“It’s been a very productive offseason on and off the ice,” said Walby. “We have a great crop of incoming rookies, our top veteran players are returning from last season’s team and we’ve added a solid group of veteran junior players to the mix.” Walby was also excited about the additions to the organization.
“It’s exciting. We’ve grown as an organization. The new additions to our already awesome game day staff will enhance the game day experience for fans at the rink, viewers at home and we will be announcing some new members to our coaching staff over the next week,” said Walby. “We’re growing. It’s going to be a great year to be a Mullet.”
