MARINERS STRUGGLE THROUGH INJURY BUG


Stephen J. Osmond Local Sports Columnist

The Mariners had an 0-2 weekend on the ice as they lost both to Corner Brook and Deer Lake this weekend respectively.

The Mariners put up a valiant fight Friday night versus the Royals but fell 6-4 in what was a good game of puck.

Injury troubles continue to be the talk of the gateway town as the team hopes to get healthy for the playoffs which are just a couple weeks away.

Tristan Butt has been lost for the season to an injury, but the other players seem to be on the mend and on their way back to the depleted Mariner lineup.

Clay King, Brent White, Dylan Savory just to name a few who are dealing with injuries and General Manager Mark Lawrence expects them all to be ready for the playoffs.

Out of all the troubles the team has had on the injury front they have been stable in the pipes despite the scoreboard as both Nadon and Wiseman have been bombarded with shots throughout games as fatigue becomes a factor with a short bench but they have both held the fort.

The Mariners are set to play the Corner Brook Royals in round one of the playoffs but first they have one more home game versus the Deer Lake Red Wings which should take place this weekend.

Let’s hope they get mended up and have the rotational workers home for the playoffs because when they are all present the Mariners have a solid group of players and can be a formidable opponent for the Royals in the first round.
