A few members of the Missouri Mavericks lounged around the locker room, watching the hockey movie “The Mighty Ducks” following a light-hearted practice session conducted by assistant director of hockey operations Simon Watson.
“We only had 12 skaters on the ice, so Watty got to take care of practice today,” coach Scott Hillman said. “They played a little three-on-three, had some fun and got a bit more rested and – we hope – healthy, as we prepare for this weekend.”
The Mavericks were 1-1 this past weekend in Rapid City, S.D., and get ready for two home games this weekend as they play host to Denver on Friday and Tulsa on Saturday. Both games begin at 7:05 p.m.
“We just got back from a long road trip, so we just let the boys go out and have some fun today,” Watson said. “Scott will start working with system stuff and game stuff later in the week.”
