Hello Jets Team & Happy FRIYAY ;o)!!!
I'm so excited that our first game is FINALLY here!!!
OK, I haven't been faked out by any other time changes, so we are scheduled for puck drop BRIGHT & EARLY at 6:30 AM tomorrow! I know this will be a bit of a struggle getting our players going this early, but please try and have your child fully dressed in hockey gear and ready to get on the ice by 6:25 AM in case we can get out early to wake them up with a warm-up skate!
At this level we will play half-ice games, which means one net will be at the end of the rink like in a full-size hockey game, and then the opposite net will be near the red line at center ice. There are portable heavy walls (basically just like the boards that are permanent around the rink) that we connect together on the red line at center ice to separate the halves of the sheet of ice so that two games can be played simultaneously (might not be available for tomorrow's game apparently). For tomorrow's game we are assigned to what is called the "Lobby Side" which means the end of the ice closest to the Lobby of the Chiller. For the purpose of future games, the other end of the ice is referred to as the "Zam(boni) Door Side" since that's the end that the Zamboni uses to drive onto the ice. Our game is against the Jackets and we are the away team, so our bench will most likely be the penalty box of the Lobby Side.
I'm only aware of only one Jets player who is unable to play tomorrow, so here's the lineup for the game:
Please let me know by 8:00 PM tonight if any of the players listed above will not be able to play in tomorrow's game.
Thank you and I'm so excited to see everyone tomorrow!!!
J-E-T-S GOOOOOO JETS!!! 🏒🥅🏒🥅🏒🥅
