BEDFORD, MA -- The East Coast Wizards are enjoying a week off, as the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) breaks for this year's All-Star festivities. The break does come at a good time for the Wizards, who currently own an overall record of 5-7-2 through their first 14 games. Highlighting just the month of October, and the Wizards were 2-4-2 in the first three weeks, and the time off will now give the team the chance to reset and recharge.
The week off will help players battling injuries, and just entire roster in general get some rest. However the one player that will not be enjoying the rest is Chance Gorman, who was recently named to the this year's EHL All-Star Team.
"This is a great honor and opportunity for Chance." said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "Chance has worked extremely hard so far this season, and his success stretches much further than the 17 points he's tallied so far. I am looking forward to working with him and the rest of the All-Star Team this week."
As Meyer mentioned, he is also set to join the All-Star Team this week, as one of the assistant coaches.
The week ahead for Gorman and Meyer is filled with campus tours, recruiting seminars, and of course, three exhibition games against NCAA Division III opponents.
The East Coast Wizards would like to wish both Gorman and Meyer the best of luck this upcoming week, and be sure to visit the league website (EasternHockeyLeague.org), for information on how to watch each game.
