Rice has contacted the Bayhawks about rejoining the team according to a story in today's Erie Times News. Coach John Treloar stated the Rice would have to get his rights released by the Azovmash Mariupol team in the Ukraine
and that the process of doing so has started. Even though he was released by the team, they still own his rights.
Erie is looking to add a player before tonight's game versus Springfield. Even with Mike Gansey rejoining the lineup tonight, the roster stands at 9 players.
