The Florida Panthers assigned defensemen Ville Koistinin to the Amerks on Friday morning. This should be a great addition to an already great Amerks lineup.
Koistinin was put on waivers by the Panthers on Wednesday in hopes another team would pick him up, no one did. They made the decision today to send him here to get some playing time.
Based on reports it sounds as if Koistinin was not given much of a chance in Florida. He has always played defense but was moved up to play winger. Not sure at this time if he will play tonight.
Also wanted to mention that ticket sales have been busy all day for the game tonight. Early reports said the lower bowl was near a sell out but you can still get tickets in the 100’s.
Talking about ticket sales is a big deal as fans in recent years have been able to walk up on game night and easily get tickets and walk right in. This season there has been long lines and people have missed the start of the game. Just a heads up so no one misses the action!
Puck drops at 7:05pm, see ya there!
