Elmira Enforcers Add Toughness To Roster Ahead of Battle Creek Trip

by Jon Kliment

The Elmira Enforcers of the Federal Prospects Hockey League have made a trade ahead of their trip to Michigan as they acquired Gino Mini from the Battle Creek Rumble Bees.

Mini is a 23 year old defenseman from Richmond, Mi, standing 6’4 and 203 pounds. Mini has played in 19 games for the Rumble Bees adding two goals and three assists for five points as well as 21 penalty minutes. Gino was an assistant captain at Oakland Universtiy of the ACHA as well before going professional. “Gino is a big body and will help our blueline down the stretch.” Coach Clarke told media members.

The Enforcers gave up the rights to Nathan Pelligra in the deal. Pelligra was a large part of the Enforcers playoff push last season and the team wishes him well in his future.

The Enforcers are on the road against Battle Creek this weekend before the holiday, but return to First Arena Thursday, December 26th at 7:05 pm against the Delaware Thunder. Get your tickets now by calling 607-734-PUCK or going to Tickets.com!
