Fresh from a morning skate, Lethbridge Hurricanes goalie Ty Rimmer, dressed in a black track suit, walked through the back door of Toyota Center on Thursday for the first time since leaving at the end of last season.
An offseason trade by the Tri-City Americans sent Rimmer to Lethbridge for his overage season, and tonight, he and the Hurricanes are here for the teams’ only meeting of the season.
Walking down the hallway outside the Americans’ dressing room, Rimmer took note of his name on the wall of fame, listing the top players and goalies for regular-season, playoff and career feats.
“This is surreal,” Rimmer said. “You walk down the hallway and see all the greats — the guys you looked up to. It’s special. Last season was a special year. It’s something I will never forget — all these people — my teammates. We were part of something special. All the individual accomplishments came as a team. That’s why they are so special.”
