The Jacksonville IceMen today introduced the first player to sign with the new ECHL team, left winger, Garet Hunt.
“I’m thrilled to be coming to the IceMen,” said the 29 year old (bornOctober 14 – the same date as the IceMen opener) ECHL veteran Garet Hunt. “I’ve played out west for the last seven seasons against teams coached by Jason Christie. We’ve always shared a mutual respect and I’m excited to now be part of his team. He shared with me the great response that the Jacksonville community has shown to having pro hockey back in town. I look forward to joining the Jacksonville community.”
