Following the folding of the Arborg Fussy P’s, the IRHL has experienced an influx of young, talented UFAs this summer. GM Gunner Gislason spent many hours on his cellular phone penetrating the IRHL UFA market. After everything was said and done, Gislason locked up Ryan Pochailo and Ethan Chwaliboga to one-year, two-way contracts. Gislason hopes this addition of young blood can add some ‘swagger’ to the aging Aardvarks lineup.
The Shooters were also busy this off-season, signing the reigning 2017-2018 IRHL MVP.
The Aardvarks are releasing the following players for this weekend’s international break:
- Travis Bobbee (Sandy Bar Senators)
- Gunner Gislason (Riverton Brewsers)
- Jayde Barkman (Riverton Brewsers)
- Jason Gulay (Arnes Pointers)
- Cory Johannesson (Arnes Pointers)
- Jeff Fuz (NFC Pro Bowl Team)
The Aardvarks would like to wish each player the best of luck!
The Aardvarks have stripped the captaincy from Gunner Gislason because of his off-ice shenanigans late last night. He was caught, numerous times, ringing strangers doorbells without invitation. The Aardvarks believe his actions were immoral.
The Aardvarks have now awarded their perennial 50 goal scorer, Cory Johannesson, the ‘C’ for next season.
The Arborg Aardvarks have acquired Jayde Barkman from the Riverton Rifles to replace Mack Marks between the pipes. Barkman made some critical saves in his first game as an Aardvark, stopping 59 shots in the 15-11 victory over the Riverton Pointers.
You can catch Barkman and the Aardvarks in action this Sunday at 7:30pm in the Arborg Arena when they face off against the Arborg Comrades.
