To hockey, a lot of IceHogs fans are wondering if any players from last year's championship team will be invited to tryout for the new AHL team. Fan favorite Frederic Cloutier shown here , is just one name that has been thrown around. Last night new IceHogs General Manager Al MacIssac addressed the Cloutier situation.
"AL: He's a great goalie but at the American League level, Cory Crawford is an unbelievable goaltender. He's an all-star. You are getting a goaltender that went a whole notch higher. Cloutier sometimes becomes that guy who is just a fill in. If we're short you might be him back here."
Cloutier set several franchise records last season including highest save percentage, wins, and goals against average.
