The Rail Yard Dawgs announced on Friday that forward Nick Ford has returned from his loan to the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder, and forward Jackson Tucker has been placed on waivers.

Ford had a strong start to his tenure with the Dawgs, recording two goals and three assists in six games before earning the move up to Adirondack. The six-foot-one forward played in two games for the Thunder, and will be available for the Dawgs this weekend during their road trip to Fayetteville.

Tucker joined the Dawgs on October 29 after spending the past three seasons playing in the FPHL. In Roanoke, the six-foot forward played in nine games, tallying one assist. The Carolina Thunderbirds own his FPHL rights if he clears waivers.

Roanoke will face the Marksmen in a weekend doubleheader tonight and tomorrow night at Crown C. Puck drop for tonight’s matchup is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. EST, while Saturday night’s game will begin at 6:00 p.m. Season tickets, Wisler Plumbing and Air Family Four Packs, group tickets, and single game tickets are on sale now for future home games, and you can listen to Roanoke play on the Haley Toyota Rail Yard Dawgs Hockey Network via Mixlr or watch them on HockeyTV.
