Last Week in Review: The Sea Wolves had their Thanksgiving week spoiled by the Columbus River Dragons after falling in all three games 9-5, 4-1 and 7-2. Columbus extended their win streak to ten games at the end of the weekend, while the Sea Wolves saw their losing skid move to double digits.
A New Beginning: This past Monday, the Sea Wolves named Joe Pace Jr. as their interim head coach effective immediately. Pace will continue playing as a defenseman while being at the helm of the team. Joe spent the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons as a general manager, head coach and player for the Port Huron Prowlers.
