Season Ends for Icecats

Unfortunately, the 2001/2002 Icecats season ends early with an overtime loss to Manitoba. Marc concluded the playoffs with 2 goals and 2 assists.

Marc was involved in the dissallowed goal which should have counted in the final game. The referee blew the call and it cost the Icecats a trip to the next round. Marc was looking forward to establishing personal playoff highs.
