Same-look C3 Spiders get ready for 2013–14 AHA winter season
Oct. 25, 2013
The 2013–14 Spiders roster is essentially unchanged from last season.
- Defenseman Rick Fritz returns from the PUP list after sitting a year out.
- Chris Pettengill, who subbed last season, has left the team.
- And, finally, Andy Schwinn switched to a sub spot.
In all, the veteran squad of 20 hits the ice this weekend to kick off the Spiders’ 10th season in the AHA (ninth winter season; 10 including Beginner School), and will look to return to the post-season for their sixth consecutive appearance.
The Spiders will have their work cut out though, in a C3 East division that contains enough AHA hardware to tempt Phil Pritchard to change employers:
- C3 2012–13 and Fall Tourney 2013 champions (Gold Rush)
- D1 2012–13 champions (Fighting Loons)
- C3 West 2012–13 Division champions (Fighting Piranhas)
- C3 2012–13 championship runners-up (Fighting Saints)
