Icemen Add Two Forwards, First Goalie

Jacksonville, FL– The Jacksonville Icemen, proud affiliate of the NHL Winnipeg Jets and AHL Manitoba Moose, today announced the addition of forwards Tyson Fawcett and Derek Brown to the 2018-2019 training camp roster.

Tyson Fawcett, 25, returns to the lineup after playing 54 games in the club’s inaugural season, recording 23 points (8G, 15A). This will be the third season the Barrie, Ontario native has donned an Icemen sweater, having spent the 2015-2016 season with the club in Evansville. The 5-foot-7, 165-pound forward is 15 games shy of veteran status, but will not count towards the team’s maximum for veterans allowed since he will reach the milestone during the season.

Derek Brown, 21, is making his professional debut with the Icemen after three seasons of junior hockey with the Bonnyville Pontiacs and most recently, the Vernon Vipers. Last season, the 6-foot-1, 181-pound forward notched 12 points in 16 games (11G, 1A) with the Vipers and 38 points (20G, 18A) in 30 games with the Pontiacs.

Another rookie joins the Icemen as the first goalie on the training camp roster. 19-year-old Denis Tsaruk saw action in one game last season for the Icemen with a .786 save percentage. Prior to joining the Icemen, the 6-foot, 181-pound Nikolaev, Ukraine native spent two seasons in juniors before transitioning to the Federal Hockey League.

The Icemen begin training camp on Monday, October 1st at the Jacksonville Ice & Sportsplex. The first week will be capped off with the Blue & White scrimmage on Saturday, October 6th at 6:00 p.m. One week later, the Icemen open their second season of play at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena against the South Carolina Stingrays. Puck drop is at 7:00 p.m.
