The Roadrunners are set to take on the San Jose Barracuda in the first preseason game in team history tonight at 7:00 PM at Sharks Ice.
The club traveled to San Jose on Wednesday afternoon and held a morning skate early Thursday.
There will be no radio or television broadcast available for tonight’s affair. In-game updates can be found by following the Barracuda’s official Twitter account, @sjbarracuda, which will be on location throughout the contest. Our account, @roadrunnersahl, will be providing updates from San Jose – mainly those involving scoring details, when passed on from Northern California.
As internally reported earlier today, the Roadrunners will dress and align as such for tonight’s preseason tilt:
BRENDAN PERLINI – CHRIS MUELLER (A) – HENRIK SAMUELSSON
MICHAEL BUNTING – RYAN MACINNIS – CONOR GARLAND
ERIC SELLECK (A) – TYLER GAUDET – CRAIG CUNNINGHAM (A)

Goaltender Marek Langhamer will get the call in net, and is expected to play the full 60 minutes. Langhamer made his professional debut last season with the Springfield Falcons, appearing in 19 games, posting a 7-9-2 record.
Forwards Chris Mueller, Eric Selleck and Craig Cunningham will serve as the Roadrunners’ alternate captains tonight.
