BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Sea Wolves announced that Torry Gajda, Mark Hurtubise, Mike Falk, Mark Rooneem, Chase Trull and Lance Monych are attending training camp with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League while Jon Booras is in training camp with the Iowa Stars of the AHL.
The Sea Wolves are the ECHL affiliate of Norfolk of the AHL and the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League.
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.
