Players to Watch

Guelph Storm

Fedor Gordeev will play against his former club after being traded to the Guelph Storm earlier this year. Fedor has 2 goals and 4 assists since coming over to Guelph and has a plus/minus of +12 in those games. Gordeev is a towering 6’7″ and was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 5th round of the 2017 NHL Draft.

Flint Firebirds

Jake Durham is having a career season with career highs in goals with 34 and points with 54 thus far this season, and is only 3 assists away from setting a new career high. It’s been a tough season for Flint, but Jake has been able to put up some great numbers this season and will look to hit the 40 goal mark by seasons end.

Family Day

Each member of the team will be signing autographs, taking pictures and interacting with Storm fans. Fans are encouraged to bring their skates to the game, as only those with skates will be permitted onto the ice.

Helmets are strongly encouraged.

Skates must be checked at the Fan Experience Zone at GATE 6 prior to entering the Sleeman Centre concourse for the game, and a baggage ticket will be issued.
