"I have watched Zach skate since he was 10 years old. Zach has really earned his participation to our training camp. He has made the sacrifices needed over the years and he really deserves his opportunity. I can assure you that there will be a proud father tomorrow as his son hits the ice" said General Manager Pat Dunn.

"To see a little boys dream come true is absolutely fantastic, after having played all his youth hockey in Corpus Christi, this will be an unbelievable experience for Zach. I want to thank the IceRays organization for the invitation and appreciate everything they have done over the years" said Cory Goller, Zach's father, a Citgo Refinery Financial Analyst and also a member of the Corpus Christi Adult Hockey League.

"This speaks highly of the competition our kids are exposed to in the state of Texas. This reinforces and encourages us to pursue with the excellent program we offer in Corpus Christi. I believe that with a year round ice facility, it won't be long before we see a local boy crack the IceRays line-up" said Corpus Christi Junior IceRays representative, Doctor Greg Silverman.
