Sorry, my bad I thought you were talking about EHF kids that had a chance of making the team.... not sure the league is concerned about the T1 kids looking for a free skate.. BTW, gotta love the guy that claims to go to a free skate with the islanders to prove e9 is better... either a great sense of humor or a loser of epic proportion.... trust me no parent on the planet wants to take their kid to the free skate for their own team on Super Bowl Sunday...coaches kids only as they have to be there.
This open skate was to help fill the roster for the Tier 1 Black slot that came with the purchase of the RiverHawks. If your little guy didnt receive a contract offer within a day of that skate then he probably didnt make the cut. There were plenty of quality skaters out there but the previous poster was correct; once they went to end-to-end transitions drills, the bottom fell out for 75% of the kids there.
