Left winger Barr re-signs with IceGators
Lafayette — The Louisiana IceGators announced Wednesday that left winger Tyler Barr has re-signed with the team.
This will be Tyler’s sixth professional season.
Barr’s first year as an IceGator began in 2012-2013, which was cut short with a season ending knee injury suffered in the season’s first game. Last season was a different story. In 34 games, he scored four goals and assisted 10 times for a total of 14 points, while amassing 160 penalty minutes.
The IceGators will drop the puck at their first home game at 3:05 p.m. Nov. 2.
