STATE OF MICHIGAN PAUSES HOCKEY
The State of Michigan has shut down several businesses in an effort to stop the spread of Covid19. Per state order, several businesses including hockey rinks must shut down from November 18th until further notice. As a result, the Locomotives as well the affiliate teams of the Phantoms and Zombies will be off and hope to return to the ice for league games soon. The state does allow for private ice rental and the Phantoms are currently scheduling a private ice rental on Sundays at Walker Ice & Fitness. Contact Woot if interested. In terms of the Locos, previously scheduled games will be made up at the end of the first-half schedule. Entering this pause of the season, the Locos sit with a 2-2 record and reside in second place tied with Beerly Legal, Bush Leagers and Pup N Suds. Through the first four games of the season, the Locos have scored 22 goals (2nd most) and have surrendered 30 goals (2nd worst).
LOCOS TO GET NEW JERSEYS
After seven seasons of wearing the black and gray jerseys, the Locomotives have teamed up with Michigan-based Men's League Sweaters to design a new jersey for the upcoming season. Between the Locomotives management team of Matt Nieger and Kevin Wootton and excellent group at Men's League Sweaters, the partnership developed a very stylish jersey that is expected to on the backs of the players by late fall. The team will continue with the 'black' look as the main color, but all other aspects of the colors, logos and feel will be changed. Men's League Sweaters is the same company that created the West Michigan Phantoms' gray jerseys. These new sweaters are sublimated and will not peal or fade as most tradition jerseys do.
