Hurley returns

Will start tonight against Bossier-Shreveport

Defenseman Sean Hurley has been activated from injured reserve today according to Pointstreak. He is expected to start in tonight's New Year's Eve contest against the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs.

Hurley, now in his third pro season, suffered a wicked injury during pre-game warm ups on December 18th. His third finger was pinched between his stick and a fast moving puck as he attempted to block a shot. I've seen a photo of the injury and it's too gnarly to describe in detail.

A graduate of Brown University, Hurley played two seasons in the ECHL with the Bakersfield Condors, Las Vegas Wranglers and Gwinnett Gladiators. He signed a contract with the Brahmas on November 6th and has contributed four assists and 12 PIM in 21 games played this season.
