Storm Sign Minx, Harris Suspended
Today the Quad City Storm acquired defenseman Tyler Minx from the Knoxville Ice Bears in exchange for future considerations. Minx, a left-handed defenseman, is a native of Oklahoma City. Storm forward Tim Perks has been released to create roster space for Minx.
Storm defenseman Ludlow Harris Jr. has been suspended for a single game by the SPHL for an elbowing penalty he received in last Saturday’s game. He will miss this Thursday’s game versus the Birmingham Bulls. Per the SPHL:
“Quad City’s Ludlow Harris, Jr. has been suspended one game as a result of his actions in SPHL Game 34, Birmingham at Quad City, played on Saturday, November 10. Harris was assessed a major penalty for elbowing at 12:41 of the first period. Harris will miss Quad City’s game against Birmingham on Thursday, November 15.”
The Storm hit the road this weekend for a three-game trip that starts against the Birmingham Bulls on Thursday and wraps up with a Friday-Saturday stint versus the Pensacola Ice Flyers.
The next home games are Friday November 23rd and Saturday November 24th. Friday is Black Friday-Blackout Night and fans are encouraged to wear all black to the game. Saturday is RIA Federal Credit Union Night as the Storm help the homeless and gather new underwear socks and gloves that you can toss on the ice. The first 1000 fans through the door receive a puck piggy bank.
