The 1999-2000 Bantam Ice Eagles is a good mixture of veteran returning players and up-and-coming first year players.† Coach Jerry Moon, assisted by Kevin Takacs, welcomes back a nucleus of experienced players including:† Center Josh Moon, who has led the team in scoring every years since he was on the Squirt team;† Austin Busch, a versatile player equally adept at forward or defense;† John Carr, who adds a physical presence in the corners;† Jason Corcoran, an aggressive defenseman who will clear out the area in front of the net; Chad Dotterer, another defenseman whoís not afraid to rush the puck up ice; Will Hegwein, back from a serious injury,† already reestablishing his reputation for scoring the big goals;† Ryan Takacs, one of the teamís fastest and most aggressive forwards; and Brandon Kruse, an outstanding goalie with plenty of big game experience.
They are joined by three players who played with them two years ago as part of a Pee Wee team that won more than 45 games:† Brandon Balsar, Les Mooney, Tom Parkinson.† The team is also bolstered by first year players:† Jack Hasselbusch, Robbie Jacobsen, Mark Muenstermann, and Justin Welsh.† Also expected to contribute heavily to the teamís success in first year Goalie Brandon Morgan.
At this writing, the team is off to a fast start with six straight wins, but the team will have to continue to improve as they get into tournament play.
