Delco Demons Hockey

New Year, New Rosters, New Season

The Delco Demons open their second season this weekend with back to back home games against the Richmond Robins and Pittsburgh Bandits.  It’s been a long off-season, and an even longer preseason.  By condensing the schedule after the holidays, the club hopes more continuity will lead to a second season even more successful than the first.  Games against the Robins start at 6:00pm Saturday night, and the Bandits come in at 9:30am Sunday morning.

More paramount to the potential for a big year is the addition of elite talent, and the deepening of the depth chart to include the addition of a third team.  Last year’s elite team returns it’s core, and to balance the loss of Eric Keene, Frank Szilagyi, Mike Marconi, Jason Allen, and Justin Brown, the Demons have brought in big names including JJ Fichter, Tom Youmans, Mike Maczynski, Adam St. Clair, Mike Longo, and Jon Donohue.  At the minor level, the Demons have added a second team, splitting last year’s returning players in half, and adding an incredible amount of depth, including Joe and Nick Dangelantonio, Matt Hellhake, Tom Pflaumer, Eric Hansell, Mike Sabol, Pete Zwolak, Phil Leroux, Dominic Gricco, Joe Hutchison, Alex Tarczynski, Bob Sherwood, Xavier Ramirez, and Dominic Denker.  Denker comes to the Demons all the way from Namibia, Africa, the same town as Otwin Foerster, who returned home after last year.

The Robins elites have opened their 2012 season with a record of 3-4-0-0 with big wins over the Bandits, and close losses to the Philadelphia Liberty in early December.  The Robins minors have soared early in 2012 with a perfect record of 4-0-0-0 against the same teams.  The Bandits have struggled so far in the 2012 season with a record of 0-7-0-0 in the elite division and 1-5-0-0 in the minor division, against the Liberty and Robins.  Both teams should prove to be a challenging start to the season for the Demons, especially if the Bandits can get all of their talent, including Dustin Roux, to Delco.
