Icemen Sign Central Hockley League Veteran Jarret Lukin
The veteran forward, and native Canadian, joins the Icemen with two championships under his belt from his days with the Allen Americans (oh, the irony!).
The 30-year-old has spent a chunk of his career as a journeyman, playing in 409 games since the 2006-2007 season, some of which with the Florida Everblades and Dayton Bombers of the ECHL, as well as Rochester and Lake Erie in the AHL. He finally settled in Allen, Texas in 2009 after signing with the Americans where he played in 238 games, scored 74 goals, and was responsible for 88 assists for a total of 162 points.
According to a press release provided by the team, new Icemen coach Dwight Mullins said of the signing, "Jarret is a rentless worker on the ice. He can play in any situation. He was a captain for me in Allen and is a player that I can trust to help lead Evansville and contribute to our success.”
The Icemen will kick off the season with a home game inside The Ford Center against the Gwinnett Gladiators on Saturday, October 18th.
