Bombers Land Blair Stayzer from Roanoke
The Dayton Bombers have announced that they have acquired forward Blair Stayzer from the Roanoke Express for future considerations.
Stayzer, 22, started the season with the Mississippi Sea Wolves, accumulating a goal, two assists, and 19 penalty minutes in 12 games before being acquired by the Express on November 14. With Roanoke, the Dunnville, Ontario native compiled two goals, three assists, and 42 penalty minutes in 15 contests. The Bombers are scheduled to play against Stayzer's two former teams this weekend when they host Mississippi on Friday and Roanoke on Saturday.
"Stayzer is a big and strong (6'3", 210 lbs.) presence on the ice who brings a physical element to our offense," said Bombers Head Coach Greg Ireland. "He has always played well in the games against the Bombers as a member of the Johnstown Chiefs." Stayzer played 78 total games with Johnstown in the 2000-2001 and 2001-2002 seasons. He was on the club's roster when it competed against the Bombers during the teams' 2002 Northwest Division Final series won by the Bombers in a three-game sweep.
The Dayton Bombers will kick off a season-high, five-game homestand with three games at the Nutter Center this weekend, beginning with "Single Source News" Singles Night on Friday, January 31 when they entertain the Mississippi Sea Wolves for a 7:30 p.m. game.
On Saturday against the Roanoke Express (7:30 p.m.). the Bombers' navy blue road jerseys, featuring burgundy and gold trim, will be auctioned off during proceedings held on the Ervin J. Nutter Center "Flight Deck" concourse after the game.
On Sunday versus the Trenton Titans (6:00 p.m.), the Bombers will partner with Jaffe & Gross- The Jewelry Company in downtown Dayton to host "Who's Got the Real Diamond? ... The Search Continues!" Night. Earlier this season, 500 ladies received a stone packet from Jaffe & Gross- The Jewelry Company (461-9450) during an in-game promotion. One of those 500 ladies was lucky enough to receive a free Round Brilliant Cut 1/2 carat diamond. However, somewhat mysteriously, the diamond still has not been found and, therefore, a winner has not yet been unearthed! At "Who's Got the Real Diamond? ... The Search Continues Night," Jaffe & Gross- The Jewelry Company will have a mini jewelry display (focusing on but not limited to heart motif designs) on the Nutter Center concourse as fans prepare for their Valentine's Day shopping. Jaffe & Gross will also have diamond testers at the game. Should no lady who received a stone in the promotion earlier this season step forward as a winner in the preceding games of the weekend homestand (Friday, January 31 vs. Mississippi and Saturday, February 1 vs. Roanoke), Jaffe & Gross- The Jewelry Company will have their testers at the game to help determine a winner. The Bombers will also be having another Kids Club Sunday Presented by Capn Bogeys at that game and will be a holding a free pre-game skate from 4:00-5:00 p.m.
