Nailers Add Goalie Ruby
WHEELING — The Wheeling Nailers announced Thursday that they have signed goaltender Jordan Ruby to an ECHL contract.
Ruby, 27, is currently in the midst of his fourth professional season and third in North America. After completing his four-year collegiate career at R.I.T., Ruby made 26 saves in his pro debut, earning a victory for the Toledo Walleye in the closing weeks of the 2014-15 campaign.
The Tavistock, Ontario, native then spent the majority of his rookie year in his home province, compiling a 6-9-3 record, a 3.12 goals against average, and a .903 save percentage with the Brampton Beast. Ruby has posted excellent numbers over parts of two seasons with the SPHL’s Macon Mayhem, going 29-8-5 in 42 games. He spent the entire 2017-18 season in Brest, France.
The Nailers will play two games at home this weekend. First up is Military Appreciation Night against the Fort Wayne Komets at 7:05 p.m. tonight.. That night is also a Frosty Friday with $2 beers. Then, the Indy Fuel return to WesBanco Arena for a Family Funday at 3:05 on Sunday, featuring a Post Game Skate with the Team.
The next big promotional game is NailerMania on Dec. 15, starring WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley. Teddy Bear Toss and Ugly Sweater Night will also be part of that fun-filled night. Family Four Packs are available for NailerMania, thanks to WTRF — for $60, fans get four tickets, four hats, and four McDonald’s Meal Vouchers. 2018 Holiday Packages are now available as well.
