Harrisburg Players To Watch
In the season opener last week, Tom Mellor and Ricardo Carvalho each notched 3 points while defender Danny Diprima blocked 3 shots and is tied for the league lead after Week One. Both of Mellor’s goals were on the power play as the Heat went 100% on their power play opportunities as well as on their penalty killing in front of goalie William Banahane who made 10 saves in his debut for Harrisburg.
St. Louis Players To Watch
Despite splitting their first two opening games, the Ambush is led by the 3 goals from JerJer Gibson and two from Mario Marcos. Lucas Almeida is a playmaker to watch out for, as is Player/Head Coach and indoor veteran Hewerton Moreira.
