Nick Lalonde, who spent 3 seasons at Robert Morris University as a member of the Men’s Ice Hockey Team will be playing in the inaugural season for the 3ICE professional hockey league which begins this summer. Lalonde will be a member of Team Carbonneau led by Hockey Hall of Famer Guy Carbonneau, a 3x Stanley Cup Champion.
3ICE will feature games all across North America beginning in June. The format will be all 3-on-3 play, which has risen in popularity since it was implemented as the overtime format across many levels of hockey. The league describes itself as follows, per its website: “3ICE has been created to bring the fans one thing…pure, unadulterated excitement. Our players and coaches will be names and faces you know and love.”
“It’s an exciting opportunity and something new that I think fans will enjoy watching. I’m grateful for this chance to play in the inaugural season of 3ICE and look forward to getting started,” Lalonde shared.
Lalonde appeared in 96 games during his 3 seasons as a Colonial, tallying 15 goals and 23 assists for 38 points.
Among the stops for the league over the summer is one in Pittsburgh, July 23 at 3pm at PPG Paints Arena. Penguins broadcasters Steve Mears and Bob Errey will be among the broadcast team for the league, and games will be broadcasted across North America and internationally.
