OTTERS REPORT: Logjam up front headlines final weeks of preseason

   September 3, 2014 1:00 am    0

Now it becomes a numbers game for Erie Otters prospects on the bubble, especially up front. The Otters normally take a 23-player roster into the regular season. So let’s assume the same for this season… Devin Williams and Daniel Dekoning are in net (unless club officials like him enough that they overlook that he’s 16…
