Hockey begins tonight!

The 2006–07 Spiders debut tonight at Highland South vs. the Ak Bars. We invite all Spiders fans to come out and cheer us on tonight at 8:50!

It’s the first opportunity to see the full 2006–07 Spiders squad in action. New in a Spiders sweater:

Welcome everyone!

And we also say goodbye to Spiders who won’t be returning this year:

  • Eric Anderson
    • Eric will become the full-time goalkeeper for the D2 East Fighting Saints. Eric played backup goalie during the ThunderSpiders summer season, as well as occasionally during Spiders practices. Good luck, Eric!
  • Deb Brinkman
    • Deb, a member of the Spiders since the Beginner School, will leave the AHA and play for the Lamplighters in WHAM. Good luck, Deb!
  • Tim Johanson
    • Tim, also a founding member of the Spiders from the Beginner School, will retire from the AHA. Will he be back?
  • Lulu Kwan
    • Lu, also a member of the Spiders since the Beginner School, will leave the AHA and also play for the Lamplighters in WHAM. Good luck, Lu!
  • John “Mad Dog” Rajes
    • Mad Dog’s renowned fighting career in the AHA piqued the interested of East Coast scouts this summer. Needless to say, he was offered a lucrative contract, and John couldn’t say no. Look for him this season at Madison Square Garden (well, more likely watching a game than playing for the Rangers). Good luck, John!

Good luck everyone! We’ll miss you!
