The Lions spent Thursday making the 900 kilometre trip to Reading, Pennsylvania in advance of tonight’s game against the North Division leaders. The first game of the two-game series (the second game is on Saturday night) gets underway at Santander Arena at 7:00 p.m.
Earlier this week Cameron Hillis and Justin Ducharme were called up by the AHL’s Laval Rocket, while Anthony Nellis received a professional tryout with the Manitoba Moose, also of the AHL.
In their most recent visit to Trois-Rivières, the Royals dropped all three games to the Lions. So far in 2022, the Lions have a 5-2-0 record against tonight’s opponents. Puck drop this evening is 7:00 p.m. and fans can catch all the action on FloSports.
