Vibes are high around the 2023-24 Icepack right now, and for good reason. New and old faces alike have been congregating at Invisalign Arena for the past two weeks with immense excitement for the season ahead. The team has worked tirelessly in order to get ready for the season opener on Friday night against the East Carolina Pirates, nobody can deny that.
However, at the end of the day, hockey is fun. It's meant to be a release valve from the everyday life stressors, ranging from aerospace engineering courses to part-time jobs and everything in between. For that reason, I decided to take the fun route during Icepack Media Day on Tuesday, asking each of the 29 players a interesting hypothetical question. Enjoy.
