9245 people came out to see the Charlotte Checkers in their season opener at Charlotte Bobcats Arena and they certainly got their money's worth, as the Checkers demolished the Wheeling Nailers 10-3.
Graham 2G, Petruzalek 4A, Kozak 1G, Bahensky 1G, Constant 2A, and Mark Lee with the big 1G4A night. (Dusty Jameison netted a hat track as well). Shots were 42-23 in Charlotte's favor. Holt made 20 saves, recovering nicely after allowing Wheeling to score 2 early goals (He also saved a penalty shot).
The ECHL wasn't kidding when they said league officials would be cracking down hard on obstruction fouls this season. The Checkers were awarded 18 power plays and converted on 8 of them (Wheeling went 1-for-5). And that's not counting the 3 fights (Gillies/McNeill, Vondrazka/McNeill, and Vondrazka/Bissonnette).
Petruzalek skated with Jamieson and Bellefuille. Potter and Constant were paired on the blueline.
Ren Fauuci was put on the 7-Day IR before the game. Deschamps and Nightengale were the healthy scratches.
I noticed Jameison seems to do well at the ECHL, is his skating keeping him out of the AHL? Maybe Petruzalek will be back with the pack before the end of the year if he plays like he did tonight. He is small but skilled, if he can work on his defensive game, he can surprise some people. Please name ur players that have a good chance to get some time with the Pack this year once injuries or callups to the Rangers happen.
