Rage Submit Playoff Roster
Broomfield, Colo. - On the eve of the franchise's first-ever post-season game, the Rocky Mountain Rage have submitted their official 2009 Playoff Roster to the Central Hockey League.
The fifth-seeded Rage will clash with the fourth-seeded Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs in the Northern Conference's Opening Round of the Ray Miron President's Cup Playoffs. Game One of their best-of-three series is tomorrow at Broomfield Event Center at 7:05 p.m.
The teams then travel to the CenturyTel Center in Bossier City, La., for Game Two on Wednesday, March 25, and, if necessary, Game Three on Thursday, March 26. Face-off time for both tilts is 6:05 p.m. MDT.
Playoff tickets for Game One at the BEC are already on sale, with prices remaining the same as the regular season: $5 kids tickets (12 & under); $10 student tickets with ID; and $22 - $44 adult tickets. Tickets are available at the BEC Box Office, www.Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or Charge-by-Phone at 800-745-3000.
All the play-by-play action of every game in the series will be carried live on the CHL Network at www.rockymountainrage.com beginning approximately five minutes before the scheduled face-off.
CHL teams are permitted to include a maximum of 19 players on their playoff rosters, plus an emergency goaltender and two amateur players. To fill out the extra three slots, today the Rage signed goaltender Terry Dunbar and two amateur centermen: Ryan McDonald and Chevan Wilson.
Dunbar played for Rocky Mountain last year and re-joins his old club after having played this season in the Southern Professional Hockey League with the Twin City Cyclones. He is not allowed to dress for games unless either fellow goaltender Scott Reid or Marty Magers is unable to play due to injury.
McDonald just completed his season in the Western Hockey League where he was second in scoring on the Prince Albert Raiders with 63 points (37g-26a).
Wilson played collegiate hockey this season for the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology where he finished third for the Ooks with 29 points (11g-18a) over their 28-game schedule.
