The Alaska Aces signed a few familiar faces to keep pucks out of their own goal during the 2013-14 season. The club announced Thursday (Sept. 12th) that netminder Gerald Coleman and defenseman B.J. Crum will rejoin the team for another run. Coach Rob Murray seems to be comfortable with his veterans from a year ago bringing the total number of returners to nine. That isn’t much of a surprise given that last year the team won a third straight Brabham Cup, the prize for the best record in the regular season.
This will be the fourth season between the pipes for goaltender Gerald Coleman. He finished last year with the second best goals against average at 2.17, tied for fourth in save percentage with a mark of .918 to go along with a record of 23-6-3.
B.J. Crum rejoined the Aces midway through last season after beginning the year with Mississippi of the Southern Professional Hockey League. In 27 games with the Glacier Blue Crew Crum carded 2 goals and 6 assists for 8 points. This will be his third season playing for Alaska.
