The Green Bay Gamblers will play their first games in almost two weeks Friday and Saturday when they visit Plymouth, Mich. to play the Team USA U-17 squad.
The Gamblers had an unscheduled week off last weekend due to COVID-19 protocols against the Youngstown Phantoms. Head coach and general manager Pat Mikesch gave the team off with the option of having voluntary workouts. He hopes the time off does the team well.
They will face a U-17 squad that lost four of its six games in the month of March, including a 4-2 decision against the Gamblers on March 27th at the Resch Center. Mickesh says it is a talented group, but the Gamblers need to impose their will on them to be successful.
The puck will drop at 6:05 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. You can listen to our full interview with Mikesch on NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com.
