WIHC Alumnus Goalie Receives Dream Call to Practice with an AHL Team

WASHINGTONVILLE, NY—When WIHC alumnus, Ryan McGrath, received a call of November 15, 2018, from his college coach, the news was beyond what he could ever have imagined when the phone rang: the Syracuse Crunch, Tampa Bay Lightning’s AHL team, needed a second goalie for practice as they’d sent up a tender to the NHL. Upon hearing the news, McGrath jumped out of bed and headed over to The Oncenter War Memorial Arena where he was greeted with a tour of the facility and a Syracuse Crunch jersey. During his time on the ice, McGrath was able to meet the coaching staff and players whom he found warm and welcoming. Though one practice, the coaching staff left the door open for potential future practices and the organization tweeted out thanks to McGrath later in the day. It was an exciting moment for McGrath and for the WIHC Wizards proud to call him one of their own.
