Erie Otters managing partner/general manager Sherry Bassin is adding some new wrinkles to his team’s rebuilding process.
First, the Otters are endorsing Hockey Edge Pro, a training system founded by Joe Quinn, into their practice routine. Quinn will be at Erie Insurance Arena today for practice (11am-12:30pm) to work with the team. Bassin also said he has hired former NHL player (and former Penguin) Gary Roberts as a consultant to work on the team’s strength, conditioning and nutrition.
