Cape Cod Islanders head caoch, Dan Hodge, is getting a big peice to his defensive puzzle this weekend. Eric Szeker is set to make his season debut after off season sugery had him side lined for the first ten games of the season. The Islanders have been strong defensively this season and the addition of Szeker will only add more strength on the backend.
"I really think that we have been solid on defense this season so far. But adding a guy like Eric back there makes us even stronger. He is true leader and is the type of guy you can count on in any situation." Coach Hodge said
Szeker played for the Islanders during the 2013-14 season and was one of the team's top defensemen. He adds size, strength and experience to the Islander d corps. "Eric is a guy who knows the system and he has been skating with the team for the past month. He's been medically cleared to play and I am looking forward to having him on the ice this wekend."
The Islanders play a home and home series with the East Coast Minuitemen this weekend. Game 1 is Saturday night at 5:30 pm at Tony Kent Arena. The game will be broadcast on FASThockey. On Sunday, the team travels to Salem, New Hampshire to take on the Minutemen at 6:20 pm.
