October 8, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Greenville Swamp Rabbits News Release

GREENVILLE, S.C. - The Greenville Swamp Rabbits, proud affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes and Charlotte Checkers, have added Cédric Lacroix to the roster after re-assignment from Charlotte. Lacroix spent the entirety of training camp in the Queen City before coming to Greenville ahead of the season opener on October 12 in Jacksonville.
