He’s missed the last five games due to injury but the Langley Rivermen hope to have Austin Azurdia back in the lineup very soon.
The 20-year old has nine goals and 11 assists in 25 games this season, a year that included an eight game point streak in October. He also announced a re-commitment for College next year as he will now attend the University of Alaska-Anchorage. It seemed like things were all heading in a good direction, and that’s certainly still the case in what can only be described as a minor speedbump in a long season. The veteran Azurdia knows this team has what it takes to do something special this season and it’s all about the big picture for a Riv squad that aims to be playing into May.
But since being sidelined in November 22nd’s 3-2 overtime win against Salmon Arm, Azurdia has been aching to get back on the ice, and will hopefully have that chance in the very near future.
