After 6 straight days at the rink the ICE took today off as far as on-ice sessions are concerned.
The club will have 2 days to practice and then will play 3 exhibition games in 3 days on Friday (Seattle), Saturday (Portland) and Sunday (Tri City).
All 3 games are in Tri City and will be played in the afternoon, so you can listen for period reports on all games on The Drive and B-104.
The ICE have 31 players on the roster but 8 will not be available this weekend as they head to NHL Camps.
Brayden McNabb (Buffalo) Drew Czerwonka (Edmonton), Max Reinhart (Calgary) Joey Leach (Calgary), Matt Fraser (Vancouver), Kevin King (Dallas), Steele Boomer (Chicago) and Hayden Rintoul (Florida).
That leaves 23 players for the weekend with 4 goalies, 6 defensemen and 13 forwards.
Judging by comments made by the ICE, the games will go a long way in helping make final decisions to the roster.
