The Syracuse Crunch are about two months away from their season opener, which means the team is starting to gear up for practice in the coming weeks.
Tuesday was the annual Crunch golf tournament at McConnellsville Golf Course, with Howard Dolgon and Crunch enforcer Eric Neilson in attendance.
Neilson was already excited about the upcoming season, motivated by missing the playoffs last season, and says they'll do everything in their power to make the playoffs this time around.
"I said at the end of the year, this team and this organization, we don't miss the playoffs two years in a row, we're a playoff team, and we fell short of that goal last year," Neilson says. "So that's gonna motivate the guys even more and get you up early Monday mornings and stay later on Fridays after your workouts."
