McDougall and Leitch Combine for 9 Goals

It should be a rule or something.  Don’t take the first shift of the game off, the Gators will score on it’s first shot.

Oooops. 1-0 lead 19 seconds in.

Like I said, it should be a rule.  All it did was start the engines of Scott McDougall and Bryan Leitch as they combined for 9 goals and 12 assists.

“It seems like we have tried everything to let these guys know.  From posting lineup cards with current statistics, to online posts, and even pictures of us with the Cup.  The Gators will always be ready to go, regardless who is in net and how big the roster is” said Jon Bellonio.

The Gators are now 2-0 early in the SCHL Pro-Am Summer 2017 season and have an early lead on the scoring championship.

“We tried to keep it simple tonight and only score when we needed to.  There were a few open net opportunities that were strategically placed to the side of the net” added Keith Buehler.

Rookie goalie back up Sean Keegans made his Gators deput and pushed aside 31 shots.

Season Opener = Huge Success

The SCHL Pro-Am defending champions defended their 8th banner raising night with an all out effort and dominance over their nemesis, Dragon Club.  The Gators are now 5-3 on Banner Raising Nights and 10-5 all-time in season openers.

“Everything worked out in our favor.  Between the game and the ceremonies pre-game and post-game.  It was a win-win-win type of night” said forward Bryan Leitch.

The Gators jumped out to a 4-1 lead after the first period with goals from Leitch, Scott McDougall, Jason Cotton and Patrick Kirtland.

Tim Richter

Cotton playing in his first game as a Gator added, “I was a bit nervous but as the night went on, I started to get a little more comfortable.”

Both lines chipped in with goals after a scoreless second period.

RJ Gates, Tim Richter added goals in the third along with Kirtland scoring his second of the game.

“Our lineup is much deeper with talent this summer, it’s going to be exciting how the season will go for us” said Zach Currie.

All-Time winningest goalie in Gators history, Nick Niedert made 32 saves for his 62nd win.  Niedert also added an insurance assist late in the game to help cover the Over.

Gators Announce Pro-Am Roster for SCHL Summer 2017

The SCHL Pro-Am defending Champions are proud to announce their Summer 2017 roster.  Many will think that this star studded lineup will bring the Gators to their 9th Cup…and they are probably right.

“We have a pretty good base to work from.  It has been proven in the past, but we feel that we picked up some pretty good pieces for the summer and players eager to learn the Gator way of winning” said President RJ Gates.

The lineup boasts some new names and faces.  Rookies Charlie Curti recently completed his sophomore year at Yale University where he scored 2-12-14 from the blueline.

Jason Cotton, a recent transfer from Northeastern University will play for Sacred Heart University this upcoming season.

Jeremy Langlois is a highly skilled forward with almost 200 games played in the American Hockey League, most recently with the Rockford IceHogs.

Henry Hart is a power forward and will be entering his finals season at Yale University and will add some feistiness to Gang Green’s lineup this summer.

Jackson Barliant is a great addition to the locker room and is looking to regain his scoring touch with some of these SCHL All-Stars.

Jacob Meyers will serve as the Gator’s back up to the legendary Nick Niedert.

Re-added to the roster this summer is the explosive Joel Beal, Pat Kirtland and Patrick Harper.  Harper is fresh off a gold medal during this year’s World Junior Championships for Team USA.
