BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Sea Wolves announced that they have signed forward Torry Gajda.
The Sea Wolves are the ECHL affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League and the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.
In Gajda’s rookie season he had 25 points (8g-17a) and 47 penalty minutes in 33 regular season games with Cincinnati before being traded to Pensacola on Feb. 14 where he had eight points (2g-6a) and 18 penalty minutes in 16 regular season games.
After being forced by Hurricane Katrina to wait two seasons, Mississippi will finally be able to celebrate its “Decade in the Den” on Oct. 27 when it hosts Reading. The Sea Wolves have sold the most season tickets in team history as fans eagerly anticipate their return to the ice at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum for the first time since Apr. 15, 2005.
Located in Biloxi, the Sea Wolves had a Voluntary Suspension each of the last two seasons under the ECHL’s hardship provisions after the arena and the team office housed within suffered extensive damage.
