The Amerks are heading into the final stretch of the season in a race with the Abbotsford Heat for home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Florida Panthers returned Michal Repik to the Rochester Americans on Thursday and his speed and scoring touch will be a big help.
In 48 games this season in Repik has 21 goals and 21 assists, not too bad for a second year player being bounced around so much. In 75 games during the 08/09 season Repik scored 19 goals and 30 assists.
There’s only 12 games remaining on the schedule so any little bit will help. The Amerks have away games this weekend on Friday at Binghamton and Saturday at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
